Godiva, a 3-year old, 60 poundb spayed female labrador retriever, had been seen by another vet for a problem with urinary incontinence, which began shortly after she was spayed as a puppy. She would leak urine while sleeping, leaving a large wet area on her bedding. She had been treated with phenylpropanolamine unsuccessfully. Her owner was eager to try a new approach and quite receptive to integrate TCVM into a thorough Western evaluation.
