Human- Depends with Button Tabs
by Jennifer M.
(Kingston, ON, Canada)
My boy, a Weimaraner who is rather large for the breed suffered an FCE episode which left him paralyzed in the hind quarters compromising bowel and bladder control long term.
I tried every available option available on the market specifically made for dogs to no avail. They came off incredibly easilt and even the x-lg sizes did not have enough length to cover the appropriate areas sufficently...
I eventually found a combination of using depends with button tabs wrapped around his waist like a belly strap, underneath the depends underwear to be the only thing that worked!
Men's Depends for Dog
(Richmond, BC Canada)
I have a beagle who is overweight approximately 59 lbs. He is 16 withers, etc. 14 years old. In a loving family who have had him and still have the joy of him but he is having problems keeping his bladder and will either dribble or actually urinate in the house. I tried all sizes of doggie diapers with no success.
After many tries and dollars $10 - $40 dollars a pack I started using Men's Depends - one size fits all. Extra aborency and odour protection, 20 a pack. It works well and his better than any doggie product tried. Cost is $20.00 for 30 diapers and on sale $14.00. Keeps the abosrbency all night and does not irritate dog or leak onto floor. Should change frequently dpending on age if in the house for a long period. Our dog is a house dog and sleeps with owners.
Life Product from Shoppers Drug Mart is the best. The original Depends brand is good too but soft and Life product has a better outter shield. Comes with 2 belts nad I use a soft large paper clip to hold the ends together on his back. Need to cut a slit for the tail - which is no problem.
Try it for medium to large dogs. Great solution for diapers to fit and avoid leaking.
Disposable Diaper for Dog After Stroke
THe harness, panty, velcro setup
Used them on an elderly, incontinent chihuahua especially after she survived a stroke. They worked great but I did have trouble keeping them on her.
Bought a couple of those "panty" things that is supposed to keep them on and that garment would slide off too. Next I put her harness on and used velcro strips to attach the panty-thing to the harness and that worked OK but it looked uncomfortable for her (she looked like she was about to pull a sled) and eventually velcro lost it's power.
Finally I ended up with the easiest and cheapest idea and it really worked best and that was to use that blue painter's tape (like masking tape but less sticky) around her waist line (on top of diaper of course) and pulled it rather snuggly. It was fast & easy to both tape and untape to remove the diaper.
Huggies Newborn Diapers for Dog in Heat
When my papillion is in heat I cut a small hole in the front of the diaper for her tail and wrap the velcro strap to the back (like a backwards diaper ) works great for her being in heat and accidents and they are hypo allergenic. Huggies Newborn cost about $20 for a pack of 84 diapers.
