i am taking care of my neighbors' pets (a dog and two cats) for a couple days. for the dog, when i feed her in the morning i am also supposed to give her a dosage of proin (i think its 50mg) which has something to do with controlling urination i think. anyways, when i went to walk the dog this morning it somehow totally slipped my mind to feed her, and therefore i didn't give her the proin. i remembered around 3 o'clock and i felt SO BAD. so i rushed over and fed her and gave her the proin. then i took her on an extra long walk because i felt sooo bad. now my question is, when i feed her this evening should i give her the proin? should i do it a bit later, or should i just not give it to her at all, or just give her half a tablet? THANK YOU SO MUCH!! i feel horrible and i just want some advice from dog owners or anyone else who might know, having never had a dog myself.
if you could give the medicine later, like at ten instead of 8, that would be better. if not i would just not give it to her otnite and make sure you keep on the regular schedule from now on. she won't start peeing uncontrollably just because she missed one dose.
and another thing .. since you mentioned it in your post ... it is not good for dogs to eat a full meal and then go for long walks or have any type of exercise for at least an hour before or after a meal. in large breed dogs it can cause them to bloat. bloating is fatal if not caught right away .
