... vet gave me gentizol drops for her ear and also dexamethasone orally. Since using this (6 days), she has been having accidents. I've been taking her out more often to try and prevent, but was wondering if her meds are causing a weakened bladder or uti
Your veterinarian has chosen an excellent combination of medications to keep your pupper more comfortable and clear the infection quickly. Dexamethasone is a steroid, a potent anti-inflammatory, which in some patients may cause an increase in thirst and urination.
You can try limiting her water intake just a bit, especially after dinner to prevent night *dribbles*. But try to deal with it a little bit longer and the infection should be cured.
As soon as she's off the Dex she'll be back to normal in no time!
Best wishes, WildcatVet
