Proin 528 531
WORKS!!! thank goodness I have had my Samoyed for 10 1/2 years. She is diabetic, insuline dependent, blind and has recently become incontinent. My vet prescribed Proin at a VERY high price. :/ I was told to call PetMeds. What a great group of CARING people helping with our pets. The medicine TOTALLY works. Aphro doesn't love the taste so much but she takes them just fine. I am so happy that this is working so well..... THANK YOU 1800 Pet Meds! 05/24/2011
FANTASTIC - WORKED!! I did a little internet research, and decided to try this when our Border Collie (age 14) began to have incontinence when sleeping. When awake, she was OK, used the doggy door, no problem. About 3 days after starting her on the 25 mg. dose (once daily with her food), the incontinence STOPPED completely. I'm amazed and thankful!! No more bed washing, and carpet cleaning every day, and the odor is gone from the house - OUTSTANDING. And working with 1-800 is ALWAYS a pleasure. Their customer service is FANTASTIC and FAST. THANKS!! 05/12/2011
Great Solution My Ruby is a large Great Pyrenees/Airedale mix (94 lbs.). She is two years old and began "wetting her bed" after she was spayed. The Proin has totally eliminated that problem. We are very happy with this solution. 04/20/2011
Great Meds! My dog has been on Proin since he was 9 months old, he is now 4 years old. He was diagnosed with a loose sphincter muscle, which is why the urine would leak out. My two comments are....the sure fire way we have given him Proin for the past several years is whole in PUMPKIN PUREE on a fork! He will not take it on a spoon or with applesauce, yogurt, cheese, etc. This is great because it is healthy for him anyways. And my other comment is, there are times maybe once or twice a year when we have to bump his medicine up for a week or two because it seems to ware off for him. So, instead of doing a 1/2 tab in the morning and a whole tab at night- we will do a whole tab two times a day. This has seemed to work well for us. 04/13/2011
PROIN product review: PROIN product review: One of the most common problems seen in spayed or neutered pets, especially as they get older is the development of urine incontinence, where pets will sometimes leak urine involuntarily while laying, sleeping and even walking sometimes. In my 17 years of medical practice, our profession has looked into many drugs to help treat this frustrating yet common condition. While some of these alternative drugs have helped, they are sometimes very expensive, while in other cases side effects can occur. So most conventional veterinarians will usually reach first for one of two drugs to treat this frustrating problem. Either low dose estrogen/hormonal therapy, or more commonly a prescription drug like proin. The main ingredient(called phenylproponolamine) helps tighten the smooth muscle tone around the urethra thus helping to minimize this frustrating involuntary leaking of urine from the bladder. While it is commonly prescribed twice daily by many veterinarians, I have found it to be as equally effective when given once daily at a dose of 3/4 mg per per pound. I even saw a journal article touting this once day use at this dose over the more common twice daily use. Many clients will notice immediate relief, while others can take several days to a week or two. However I am often able to taper this drug down to every other day or even a once or twice weekly on rare cases, while others need it daily to control the urine leaking. It is very important, however for animal guardians to have a urinary tract infection ruled out first, before starting a drug like this, as well as rule out a genetic anatomic problem of the bladder or urinary tract, if the patient is a young puppy under one year of age, as well as masses/tumors in older animals. If a thorough workup fails to detect an underlying cause of the leaking then certainly ask your vet about possibly writing a prescription for this often effective medication. The only rare side effects I have seen are digestive upset and vomiting in some animals, as well as in some pets a more rapid heart rate, due to the main ingredient in this medicine called phenylproponolamine. In fact, in human medicine, this drug was taken off the market because of worries and risks of cardiovascular issues in human patients. I have not seen this to be a major factor in veterinary medicine, but if you have an older pet with either a heart murmur or heart ailment , or some other illness that might be associated with high blood pressure like kidney disease or Cushings disease, then it is probably best to have your vet monitor the blood pressure both before and if he/she decides to start this medication. And while it does come in a chewable tablet that most dogs will accept, I have found palatability to be a problem in some dogs in taking it, even with clever disguising in treats. My overall rating of this product is a 4, its efficacy a 4.5, and its ease of use/taste a 3. , 12/29/2008

can i order in liquid form? I have a 13 year old min pin who has bladder issues.
Answer:Thank you for your question. We do not have this product in the liquid form.
72 lb APBT on 25 mg of Proin twice a day and the vet wants to give her 30 mg of Prozac once a day. I read there are major interactions for humans like serotonin syndrome and seizures. Is this a safe combination for dogs?
Answer:If your veterinarian prescribed these medications together you should monitor for any changes in your pet. Fluoxetine may increase the effects of Proin. Side effects to monitor and report include jitteriness,nervousness, anxiety, restlessness. Although rare, combination can also increase the risk of serotonin syndrome. Symptoms to monitor and report immediately include confusion, seizure, shivering or shaking, blurred vision, muscle spasm or stiffness, tremor, incoordination, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
