Let's talk abut natural control or treatments for bladder control in dogs. And so, the thing that you need to know first is always get a diagnosis of why is there urine leaking. That's usually what we're talking about. Canine incontinence is where they're dribbling or going in their sleep, or something like that. Not there's a difference between that and just squatting and going in the house. So, bladder control means that they're having trouble closing off that that urethral sphincter and they're leaking. It's also important to note if they are leaking during rest or sleep, or just walking around the house and leaking, so always tell your veterinarian first. There can be urinary tract infections or UTI's that can cause that, versus hormonal issues which happen in in a few spayed females. And so, your veterinary clinic will help you decide which one that is, and distinguish between a urinary tract infection. Now, as far as treatments are concerned there are some suggestions that diets, good diet can, and low preservative diets can help, but there's no studies that really support that very well. Same with homeopathy. Acupuncture is a modality that's used sometimes for bladder control that some people think might make a difference. And so, talk to your veterinary clinic if you're interested in pursuing any of those types of of realms. In veterinary medicine typically, once a bladder control issue or incontinence is identified certain medications some like Phenylpropanolamine may be used, which is helps to control that sphincter tone, and give more tone to that sphincter, and allow those dogs to actually gain their bladder control back. So, check with your veterinary clinic as far as natural modalities are concerned, and they can help you through that.
