Shelf Life-liquid 180 days
I haven't used this yet. I spent this morning trying to find out what the shelf life is for the DES liquid. I called 1800petmeds, they researched it and called me back. DES LIQUID is good for 180 days from the time they compound it. You're welcome (;

WHAT A GIFT!
For a few weeks our 9 year old dog started wetting the bed. We started with basics like removing her water after 9pm but it didn't matter. Brought her to the vet, expecting some infection and going to pay hundreds. Luckily the vet perscribed DES. Gave it to her and after 2 days the wetting the bed STOPPED! Only down part is that it is a pill that your dog will need to be on for life. Well worth it though :)

Super product for aging pet!
After my 12 year old female mixed breed woke up in a puddle of urine, I thought for sure I would have to put her down. Luckily, I called the vet and she recommended DES about twice a week. It was a miracle! She has absolutely no incontinence whatsoever now, and I am so happy I'll have my girl around at least a little longer. I LOVE Petmeds! A geat company, with great customer service.

QUESTION
Is oxybutynin the same as des
ANSWERS (1)
No. They are 2 different medications. DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic hormone and oxybutynin is a smooth muscle relaxant, that work differently. Both are prescription-only medications. Consult your veterinarian to discuss appropriate medications for your pet. Thank you.

It is best that you consult your veterinarian regarding the DES and how it is no longer working appropriately. It is possible the dose may need to be adjusted or the veterinarian may want to try a different medication.

QUESTION
I've been giving my dog the 1mg capsule. Does the 1mg/ml 90ml liquid come in 1mg doses? Can I use the liquid instead? Its' a lot cheaper for DES 1 mg/ml 90ml Liquid if its 90 doses vs the 30 1 mg capsules.
ANSWERS (1)
Hello AKDogger, giving your dog 1mL of the DES 1mg/ml 90ml Liquid should be therapeutically equivalent to the 1mg capsule, just make sure you follow your veterinarian's instructions.

What is DES Compounded?

DES Compounded is used to treat urinary incontinence in spayed female dogs. It mimics the effects of the natural female hormone, estrogen. Compounding is beneficial in instances where a specific dosage is unavailable or in different forms to make it easier to dose your pet. DES Compounded requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Treats urinary incontinence in spayed female dogs

How does DES Compounded work?

DES mimics the effects of estrogen, which works for urinary incontinence by improving the function of the nerves of the urinary sphincter.

Cautions:

Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children. Diethylstilbestrol is a prescription drug and should be used according to your veterinarian's directions. It should only be given to the animal for which it was prescribed. Do not give this medication to a person. Pregnant women should not come in contact with DES. DES should not be used in pregnant pets.

DES Compounded Directions:

  • Give this medication to your pet exactly as your veterinarian prescribes.
  • If you miss giving your dog a dose of diethylstilbestrol, give the next dose as soon as you remember or, if it is close to the next scheduled dose, return to the regular schedule. Do not double dose to catch up.
  • DES is given by mouth and may be given with or without food.
  • When used to treat urinary incontinence, other drugs that complement the DES may be prescribed by your veterinarian.
Tip:

Wash your hands after giving your pet this medication.
