Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more leaks My female dog was leaking urine often so my vet put her on Proin ER. I don't have any experience with their original formula, however, this one works great. I wanted to address some of the negative reviews. Some reviews are saying their dog won't chew the tablet - well, that is because it is not designed to be a chewable medication and won't taste good! The pill is TINY so you can cover in peanut butter and shouldn't have a problem. Also, one side effect is nausea/diarrhea. As with ANY new medication it can cause some GI distress so just be ready for some extra potty breaks. My pup had some loose poop and threw up a couple times the first week she was on the medication but once she adjusted she has been fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than regular I agree with others that this ER version is much improved over the regular version. My dog still had some issues with leaking with the regular half twice a day but has none with this version. And she hated taking the huge pill of the previous version- I had to shove it down her throat. This version is tiny- not really understanding the issues of others with this. I much prefer it and I am happy to have it for my dog. No more leakage and easy to swallow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, more convenient than regular Proin We, too, had to move to this version when regular Proin was on backorder, but I'm so glad we did. Now we only have to give the pill once a day (and it's so tiny!), which is so much easier on all of us. Our dog didn't like the taste of the regular Proin either so we've always had to roll it in some cream cheese. Not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proin ER 1/per day awesome! My Havanese was having little accidents everywhere. She was on the regular Proin 2x/day for several years, & it was a struggle to get her to take it. When she had to go up to 3x/day...well, suffice it to say it wasn't happening. So glad my Vet switched her to Proin ER 1/day. Now she has zero accidents! It's a smaller pill & all I do is put a dollop of crunchy PB on it and she gobbles it right up. Pretty sure she thinks the tiny pill is a peanut. :-D I don't understand why anybody would have a problem giving this to their dog. Since it's such a small pill, it's a no-brainer to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Worst Terrible! My dog hates them and won't chew up which means you have to get a treat to put it in then she spits out and the process starts all over to get her to take the pill. Regular proin of course went on backorder then this new proin er shows up on market. The regular proin she enjoyed she looked forward to chewing up. Total scam

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! Had to get this as a substitute because Proin was on back order at my veterinarian. With normal Proin, I could give my chocolate lab one every other day to keep her from having any accidental leakage. With this, I'm having to give it every 12 hours to keep her from having any leakage!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible substitute for the regular formula!!!!! Recently, Proin was running in short supply both at my Vet and pet meds. Talked to my vet and we thought we’d give the ER version a try. Within a couple days my Brittany was vomiting and pooping like crazy!!!!!!! Luckily, I had a few tablets left from her normal dosage. It ain’t been fun but at least she’s on her way back to normal. This has got to be the worse alternative brought on to mankind. I’ve spent the last three evenings after work cleaning and washing bedding. Oh, to make matters worse. Even though I set the Roomba to run this evening - guess what!!! Yep, one each Roomba and WetJet are now in the garbage. I cleaned the Roomba one other time. There wasn’t gonna be a second. If my girl starts coming close to running out again I’ll go to a compound pharmacy before she ever takes that product again. Buyer beware!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Effective My dog has been on regular Proin for a couple of years. Had to go to a higher dose to stop leaks, which still happened occasionally, despite higher dose. She also had to go on blood pressure medicine, which may have been a side effect of the Proin. With Proin ER, she has not had any leaks and is on a lesser dosage. I don’t know yet whether this has helped her blood pressure issue.

Questions

why are you only offering proin er and no longer offering regular proin

Asked by: Chris
Regular (immediate-release) Proin® (phenylpropanolamine) Chewable Flavor Tablets are still available at 1800petmeds.com in the following strengths: 25mg, 50mg, 75mg. Thank you. https://staging-na01-1800petmeds.demandware.net/s/1800petmeds/Proin-prod10304.html

Is proin er 73 mg same as 75 mg proin? My 100 lab takes 2 proin 75 a day  I would like to order but unsure  My vets cost of proin is 53$ for 60 tablets  I’d love to be able to save some money!

Asked by: Moses
No. It is the same medication, but different formulation. Proin ER™ (phenylpropanolamine) is an extended release tablet, formulated for once daily dosing (compared to the twice daily dosing Proin formulation that your dog is currently prescribed). If transitioned to Proin ER™ your pet’s tablet strength will increase, but will only be administered once daily. Please consult your veterinarian to discuss if Proin ER is appropriate for your lab. Thank you.

Proin ER provides the same proven efficacy as Proin in extended-release tablets. The patented release technology provides controlled release that ensures steady absorption.

Is the Proin ER 38 mg tablet equivalent to a regular Proin 50 mg tablet for a 44 pound dog or should I purchase the next size up? Thank you

Asked by: Henry
With Proin being a prescription medication we do suggest going over switching the medication with your veterinarian to be sure your furry baby received the correct dosage.

How big are the pills? Is it okay if my dog ends up chewing it with food or do I need to make her swallow it?
