Support for bladder weakness & pet incontinence
The bladder is a stretchy pouch made up of muscle tissue, and is located in the lower abdomen. It is like a balloon that stores urine. The animal bladder serves the function of keeping the waste liquid in one place until it can be excreted – without letting it be re-absorbed into the body. When your pet’s bladder is full, his or her body sends a message to the brain, triggering a sequence of events. The urethra has a sphincter muscle that then relaxes, thus opening the bladder. The bladder then contracts, expelling urine from the body.
As dogs and cats age, it is common for these signals to get sent at the wrong times, or for the urethra sphincter muscle to become weakened. This may commonly cause urine dribbles or common incontinence. Certain illness or disorders (like diabetes and prostate disorders) may also cause bladder weakness. Urinary incontinence is also more common in spayed bitches.

“Our yorkie, Leo, was getting to the end of his life and was dribbling urine now and then. Our vet said it was nothing serious. We have been using the PetAlive products for a long while now and we decided to try this product. He has been a different dog and seems to know that he isn’t messing anymore. Thanks you for giving him back his dignity in his old age.” – Trudie, Jack and Leo
“This is a great product. We tried it on our cat that had incontinence now and then. All we can say is thank you.” – Jon
“My cat was hit by a car last year and has had related issues ever since. The vet had said to us that she would have bladder ‘accidents’ now and then. Sure enough, she has struggled to control her bladder. We were skeptical about this product, but with our vets approval we tried it. We cannot tell you how pleased we are to tell you that she can hold it in now! She still has one or two spills form time to time, but nothing like before! Thanks so much.” – Timothy and Lee

“My dog used to wet himself when I arrived home from long trips. Our vet said this was because he got so excited to see me! I saw this product and decided to try it. My husband gives her a few doses the night before and on the morning I am due to arrive home. It’s worked every time!” – Merill

Management tips for incontinent dogs & cats
- Never punish your pet for accidents. There is always an underlying cause, even if that cause is poor house training.
- If your pet’s bladder control issues are related to house training, remember to use plenty of positive reinforcement and rewards for the correct behavior, rather than punishment for the wrong behavior.
- When loss of bladder control occurs during stress, excitement or as a submissive behavior, the best thing you can do is not make a fuss over the incident, but rather ignore it. Try removing the stressor and take steps to calm your pet down.
- Reduced bladder control is a common symptom in aging pets, or those suffering from Alzheimer’s. Try take your pet outside for “potty breaks” more frequently and reward them when they do urinate outside. For cats, you could try placing additional litter-trays around the house so that they are always readily available.
- Many older pets are embarrassed and confused about “accidents” when they do occur, especially if they have been perfectly house trained for years. While cleaning up the mess afterwards is no fun, try not to react in a way that will make your pet feel more humiliated.
There are certain things that you can do for your incontinent pet and help you manage this condition effectively:
- Provide fresh, clean water every day
- Feed your pet high quality commercial food or an all natural diet without preservatives, colorants or additives
- Do not let your pet hold urine in for long periods and encourage him to urinate by taking him out more frequently – in the mornings and after waking from a nap
- Wash your pet’s pelvic area, as well as the area surrounding, daily to prevent a foul odor and infection
- Trim or shave the hair on your pet’s stomach and around the inside of the thighs to prevent bacteria and moisture from accumulating against the skin
- Place a waterproof pad under your pet’s bedding or use old towels and blankets to cover the sleeping area
- If your dog is an indoor pet, confine him to an area of the house such as the laundry room that can be cleaned easily or install a doggy door so that your pooch can go outside
- Exercise your dog by going for walks at least twice daily
- Monitor your pet’s elimination habits so that you are aware of any changes
- Fit your pet with a disposable diaper to prevent unnecessary messes in the home – these are convenient as they can be thrown away
- Change diapers immediately after soiling occurs to prevent rashes, infections and inflammation of the bladder and skin
- Keep your cat’s litter box clean
- Disinfect areas where your pet has messed immediately with fragrant smelling household cleaners to eliminate smells and stains
- When pets are feeling unwell or have symptoms of a bladder infection, they may urinate in an unusual place to get your attention. Never ignore the message.
