Sorry you and your dog are having such troubles. Senior dogs are so very special, but might need a bit more love and care than they have in their younger years.
As to your dogs issues, you could try getting a second opinion. Perhaps hormone meds could help. She is a senior dog, and for female dogs incontinence or bladder issues are a common problem (as it is for humans as well). Muscles just aren't as flexible and tight as before, and sometimes hormone supplements can help.
Heavier body weight can also contribute to the incontinence issue, have a look if your dog could be having a little extra weight.
Diabetes is another condition that can cause more frequent urination. Do you know if your vet has tested for that? Unchecked diabetes can damage the kidneys. Blood in the urine can also come from the kidneys.
I am unclear if the meds your vet prescribed were for the infection, and if so, if that medication did not help. If it didn't she would need a different antibiotic to clear that up.
In the meantime, I would invest in some doggie diapers, at least you will have more peace of mind, that your house will not become contaminated with dog urine everywhere.
I hope your dog will feel better soon!
