Question by Carolyn T: Boxer taking enalapril and Sotalol for cardiomyopathy and pees on dog bed overnight. Know why?
Recently my female boxer, who has boxer cardiomyopathy, is peeing daily at night all over her dog bed. A few days ago her Sotalol was increased from 40mg/2x daily to 80mg/2x daily. The enalapril hasn’t changed and is given in the morning only.
Does anyone know why she might be peeing at night while sleeping? There are NO problems during the day.
Answer by julie d
Because it is a diuretic which makes them pee like a race horse to keep the fluid from building up in the lungs and heart area.
Edit: She probably has an incontinance problem as well if she has been spayed.
