If they can’t help themselves, at least you can help them.
A common problem
Canine urinary incontinence occurs in about 1 in 5 bitches after they’ve been spayed. The condition usually results from depleted oestrogen levels, due to the removal of the bitch’s ovaries.
Fortunately this incontinence can be easily treated with Incurin®: a convenient, once-daily tablet.
How does Incurin work?
Incurin replaces the missing oestrogen, in much the same way that HRT is used by menopausal women. In fact, the main ingredient in Incurin is the same hormone that has been successfully used to treat humans for more than 30 years. The incontinence will usually resolve in a few days.
Signs to look out for
The sooner treatment is started, the more effective it is. So it’s worth looking out for any early signs.
The first indication is often a smell emanating from the bedding, or damp patches where the bitch has been sleeping. You may also notice small dribbles of urine when she barks or becomes excited.
If allowed to continue unchecked, incontinence can eventually lead to sores around the urethral opening and secondary conditions such as cystitis.
If you are concerned about your dog’s toileting habits, contact your local vet for advice.
