Reader Question: Best Urinary System Remedy
Hi....I have a 2 year old Goldie that has been spayed. After she was spayed, she started to (infrequently) urinate while she was sleeping (about 1x per month or so).
Could the PetAlive Better-Bladder Control
possibly help her if she has Hormone-responsive incontinence.
Thank you.Urinary Remedy Suggestion from our Veterinarian
Some owners do report having luck with remedies like the one you mention. I see no harm in giving it a try. But if it fails to work, talk to your veterinarian about other options. In most of these cases, veterinarians like to run a urinalysis to rule out the possibility of a bladder infection or kidney disease.
If everything looks normal, then the medication phenylpropanolamine (PPA) is usually prescribed. Hormone replacement can also be considered but carries a greater risk of significant side effects in dogs.
Best of luck,
