Solutions for Incontinence for your Furever Friends”
At the McKamey Animal Center, Trica Sebes monitors a dispatch that Officer Nicholson is arriving with CindyLou, a relinquished dog given up because of incontinence. Cindylou is not a bad dog, but suffers a physical condition: Canine Urinary Incontinence. A recent survey of animal shelters has revealed that this is a common problem. Dr. Marisa Shulman from Pegasus Laboratories, explains canine urinary incontinence should be taken seriously, and there are a few possible causes a veterinarian could diagnose. Fortunately, there is help for CindyLou. It’s called Proin, available as a chewable tablet, and comes in three different strength dosages, it is a veterinary prescription drug. Check with your veterinarian if your dog shows signs of urinary incontinence.
Does your dog leave puddles all over the house?
Many pet parents do not know how to deal with this condition, and the beloved animals end up becoming outdoor dogs or are surrendered to a pet shelter. In fact, a recent survey of animal shelters revealed incontinence is a common problem.
Canine urinary incontinence:
• can be caused due to a change in hormone levels when the animal is spayed
• could be from a UTI or CUI
• may occur in up to 20% of spayed female dogs over age 6
• is progressive – starts with leaking while dog is sleeping and progresses from there
The good news is that canine urinary incontinence due to urethral sphincter hypotonus is a controllable condition. PRN® Pharmacal has a drug called PROIN® that may help your dog get back on track:
given twice a day
comes in 3 different strength dosages
veterinary prescription drug
