The most commonly reported side effects were vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, excessive salivation, agitation, tiredness, vocalization, confusion, increased water consumption, weight loss, weakness, fever, panting, and reversible changes in skin color (flushing or bright pink). Abnormal gait, seizures or tremors, as well as liver enzyme elevations, kidney failure, blood in urine and urine retention have been reported. In some cases, death, including euthanasia, has been reported. Sudden death was sometimes preceded by vocalization or collapse. Instances of dogs chewing through closed vials of PROIN®and eating the vial contents have been reported, in some cases resulting in overdose. Keep the product in a secured storage area out of the reach of pets in order to prevent accidental ingestion or overdose, as dogs may willingly consume more than the recommended dosage of PROIN®Chewable tablets. Contact your veterinarian immediately if the dog ingests more tablets than prescribed or if other pets ingest PROIN®Chewable tablets.

PROIN®may cause elevated blood pressure and should be used with caution in dogs with pre-existing heart disease, high blood pressure, liver disease, kidney insufficiency, diabetes, glaucoma, and other conditions associated with high blood pressure. The safe use of PROIN®in dogs used for breeding purposes, during pregnancy or in lactating bitches, has not been evaluated. Contact your veterinarian if you notice restlessness or irritability, loss of appetite, the incontinence persists or worsens or any other unusual signs. See prescribing information for complete details regarding adverse events, warning and precautions.

Features of Proin For Dogs

Dogs can sometimes lose control of their bladder as they age. And your pup might be struggling to hold their bladder until walk time or during sleep. A prescription for Proin picked up from our dog pharmacy might be the answer. Phenylpropanolamine for dogs can help tighten the bladder sphincter, which your dog uses to control when he goes to the bathroom. Given continuously, this medication may reduce accidents or even stop them altogether. It won’t cure incontinence, but it can make managing the disorder easier.

Proin for dogs can be given in a few forms. If dog pill capsules are tough for your pet to swallow, chewable Proin dog medication can be a good solution. You can also try drops. Give Proin medication with food and wait a few days to see results. This pill must be given consistently at the direction of your veterinarian. If you stop giving Proin dog medicine, your pup might redevelop urinary incontinence. The texture is designed to be palatable to your dog and easy to integrate into a mealtime routine.

Proin for dogs should only be used as prescribed by your dog’s vet. Keep your Proin supply in a room temperature, dry environment. Make sure to disclose your pup’s other medications or medical conditions to your vet, so they’ll know if Proin pills are a good fit. Managing urinary incontinence can be easier with Proin, available in bottles of 60 or 180 pills. For even more ways to help keep your pet comfortable and happy, check out Petco’s dog vitamins and supplements and dog dental chews and treats.
