What is Proin?

Proin is an aid in the management of urinary incontinence in dogs. Proin requires a prescription from your veterinarian.
 
For: Dogs

  Proin Drops

How it works:
Proin contains the active ingredient phenylpropanolamine, an adrenergic agent that works by tightening the bladder sphincter muscle, which helps to control urine leakage.

Cautions:
Don't give Proin with ephedrine or epinephrine, and don't give it within two weeks of using a MAOi, such as Anipryl, selegiline or a Preventic Collar. Possible side effects can occur, including restlessness, or loss of appetite, difficulty breathing, hives, and swelling of the lips, tongue, or face. If these or any other side effects occur, contact your veterinarian immediately. We do not ship Proin to Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana and Oregon where it is classified as a controlled substance.

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

You need to take your dog to the vet. He/she could have an intestinal blockage or worse, which could result in death. This is not something that is normal on Proinn and is not something you can diagnose yourself.

My Boxer was put on proin he has been on it for about a year , I was told to give him 25 mg two times a day , but lowerd his dose to 25 mg a day wich seamed to help ,
he had a urin follow up about 6 month ago wich showed the urin deluted but my vet said the levels where normal , now last week he jumped out of the truck and landed on his paw, we brought him to the vet wich he diagnosed as a sprain and put him on ampicillin and previcox , the second day he was on the meds including proin he was walking normal with his injured paw but he started to vomit and did not want to eat or drink , so we stopped the previcox and ampicillin and brought him back to the vet where they preformed a blood test ,
they found out his pancreatis and kidney levels are sky high and orderd an IV immediatly , now he is still at the hospital on IV , and responding to the IV very well , my question is can proin and the mix of previcox ( he only had 227 mg of previcox in 2 days ) and the ampicillin be cause for his present condition , he was fine before he was put on all those meds ,I asked my vet but he says the dosage was to low , my dog is very sensitive to begine with , he got multiple alergies ,

Answer: 
Yes. Please go online and read testimonials from dog owners who have lost their beloved dogs to Proin. It can cause stroke, heart attack and kidney failure. I do not know if that is related to an incorrect dose prescribed by the vet. Safe dose is suppose to be .4mg - .8mg per pound of body weight. You may want to try a natural pill supplement but if you stick with Proin, make sure it is NOT GENERIC and is the recommended dose. Vets tend to go up on the dose to get desired results regardless of the harmful side effects.

Answer: 
That is really interesting. My Saint Bernard is on Previcox for her bilateral hip dysplasia and proin for her incontinence and she hasn't loved eating since then. I was thinking it was just because of the taste of the Proin, not that the mix of the two was actually causing something wrong (I have taken her to the vet a few times but they say she's fine, no tests have been run) but after reading this I will definitely see what's going on now that I'm not putting the Proin in her food. I'll be sure to post if I find that I'm also having a problem with my dog being on the mix of Proin and Previcox.

My 16 year old dog who weighs 38.9 pounds was just put on proin 50, and was prescribed to take one pill every 12 hours. I gave her the first dose in the evening and the next morning she had not leaked all over the place like she normally does. As well as not having any incontinence problems throughout the day. Can the medicine work that quick?? Is she on too high of a dose??

Answer: 
At a dose range of 0.4mg to 0.8 mg per pound, the 50 mg dose for a 38.9 pound dog could be considered on the high side. That does not mean the dose is incorrect. If you have a question as to why the 50 mg dose is being used, you should ask your veterinarian. Could the medication work that quickly? Yes. It could.

Our 5 year old Westie just started Proin bc he was leaking after walks. He just got over a UTI before starting Proin. After 4 doses I came home to a huge puddle of urine on our carpet. The next day he had a half dollar size urine spot on the carpet. He never did this before Proin. Vet says to keep him on it as it takes a little while for it to start working. Thoughts?? THANK YOU!

Answer: 
When I started my dog on Proin it worked right away. When it stopped working several years later I took my dog to the vet to make sure it wasn't diabetes or a urinary tract infection. She suggested an increased dose which is dangerous. Try a natural pill alternative and give it 2-5 days. DO NOT LET YOUR VET PRESCRIBE MORE THAN .4mg- .8mg per pound of body weight for your dog. Also, do not use the generic version. If that is what you are on then I suggest using 1-800-PETMEDS for true Proin. That might be the problem if you are giving your dog generic.

My 14+ yrs old golden retriever mix is about 39-42 lbs. But my vet up her dosage of Proin to 50mg twice a day. Is this dosage too much since the recommended dosage is only 1.8 mg/lb per day. The reason for upping the dosage was that she started "leaking" a bit after she has been on Proin at 50mg/day for about a month.

She's also on Deramax, 25mg/day and Benezapril, 5mg/day.

Answer: 
Your dog should take .4mg - .8 mg per pound in a divided dose.If you chose to keep your dog on Proin, make sure it is not the generic form. That form is less effective. If you vet suggests anything highter than 25mg/day then you need to find another vet. 50 mg is much to high a dose for the weight of your dog and puts your dog at risk for stroke, heart attack and kidney failure. You may want to try a natural pill like Pet Natural of Vermont Bladder Support Dog Supplement. It actually works and I researched each natural ingredient which are all safe. The reason I switched my dog to it is because the vet wanted to put my dog on an unsafe dose of Proin for her weight. Good luck.

Answer: 
I must admit that I am not familiar with using Proin to treat fecal incontinence in dogs. Fecal or bowel incontinence can be due to any number of causes and is usually treated accordingly. For instance it can be due to intestinal parasites, viral infections, bacterial infections, inflammatory bowel disease, diet, etc. Your veterinarian determines the cause and the most effective treatment. You should ask your veterinarian why Proin was prescribed and how it works for your pet's condition.

I read that Proin can cause excitability. It is the same medicine that used to be in Dexatrim, a diet pill for humans that was withdrawn. I give my dog the minimum effective dose, and she shows no signs of nervousness from the medicine. I suggest experimenting with a smaller dose and see if she has any leaks. I break the tablets into halves and even quarters, and she has remained leak -free. I give her one half in the morning, one half at bedtime, and a quarter tablet at dinner. Has worked fine (she is 30 pounds).

Answer: 
Proin does have side effects which can include restlessness and irritability. You may want to discuss this with your veterinarian.

One vet sold us the liquid drops and said to take .75 every 12 hours, my dog is 20 pounds, the new vet perscribed 25 mg tables to be given 1/2 tablet each 12 hours. Is this the same dosage?

Answer: 
Each ml of Proin liquid contains 25 mg. If you give 3/4 ml (0.75) your pet will get 18.75 mg. If you give 1/2 of a 25 mg tablet your cat will get 12.5 mg. Your new veterinarian is giving a lower dose.

Answer: 
It is quite possible. One of the side effects is restlessness/excitability. Perhaps your vet can reduce the dosage. You didn't state if the urinary incontinence had been controlled. If it has then tinkering with lowering the dose seems in order.

Answer: 
It is possible for Proin to cause restlessness and irritability. I would suggest you talk to your veterinarian about your pet's change in behavior.

There are no products that are equivalent that are available over the counter, However, you can consider using a homeopathic remedy called HomeoPet Leaks No More. It may take a few weeks before you see a benefit.

Answer: 
Bethanechol (Urecholine) is used to treat urinary retention typically as a result of surgery or medications. In other words, the patient has difficulty urinating. Proin on the other hand is used for urinary incontinence. The patient can urinate, but there is some loss of bladder control causing urine leakage.

Answer: 
I treat it like a pill (open and place as far back as possible)- hold mouth tight straight into the air and rub throat till swallowed, followed by a treat. My dog is a medium pit mix though- so can handle the size of the pill. Don't get the sense it needs to be chewed, it works just fine this way. It gets easier with practice.

Answer: 
Proin does not have to be chewed. It is a liver flavored chewable tablet to make it more palatable for a dog to take. If your pet is not chewing the tablet you can break the Proin into smaller pieces and feed it to your pet that way.
