Proin is ok, provider not so much
My 13 yr old pitbull has been on Proin for many years with no real negative side effects. My review is for PetMeds. If you need a refill, you better give it lots of lead time because their shipping takes 2 weeks on average. They use USPS. Them and my 80 yr old mom still do that I guess. We had to use diapers while waiting the inordinate time for our package. Thanks for the awful sleep these last few days as I was changing diapers like I had a newborn.

Works but my dog HATES the taste
This product pretty much solves the incontinence problem. It is a large chewable with a flavor that makes my dog shudder. I split them in half and give half in the morning and half at night. Easier to get the half tablet down her throat b/c she fishes them out of most treats. Pill pockets work sometimes but not always.

Our Lab is dry and happy
Our older dog left a few drops here and there. Then he got a bad UTI of unknown origin. Countless times trying to pee, some blood, and a kidney infection. As the infection went away, he still had control problems. We asked for Proin after some web research (i.e., neither vet we saw had mentioned it). It helped the first day and by day 3 he was completely dry and slept through the night instead of having to go out to pee a couple of times. He has hip dysplasia and it has helped his walking, we think because it reduced bladder or prostate inflammation. He walks further now and has more energy.

Vet prescribed this for our 12 year old female beagle who started having multiple accidents daily about a year ago. All her blood / urine tests came back good. So far this product has not helped one bit. She’s thirstier than she was before and still having multiple accidents ( more like floods) every day. Very frustrating

Beware of the side effects
My 1 year old chocolate lab was prescribed this for spay incontinence. The initial dose was 2 75mg pills per day. Within the first 24 hours, she was in a completely panicked state. Pacing around, hackles up, panting, jumping/barking at the slightest noise and vomiting. I called the vet and asked that the dose be taken down. Even on the lowest effective dose, I saw heightened anxiety reminiscent of her adolescent fear periods. This medication works by tightening the muscles so that your dog can hold it. It increases blood pressure causing, in some dogs, an increased "fight or flight" response. Since she will have to be on this medication for life, I was not comfortable with this, nor was I comfortable with the potential long term effects of heightened blood pressure. Be aware that not every dog has this reaction, but it seems to be fairly common. If you do see these side effects, talk to your vet about other options.

Rarely Works
My dog has been on this medication for the last 4 years. We have increased the dosage from 50 to 100 and it still does not work for her. The other thing is she refuses to take the pill unless you can cover up the smell. This is just my baby that reacts like this, cause my daughters little loves it and it works good for her. Wish there was a better Medication for my baby.

What is Proin?

Proin is a medication that is used to relieve the symptoms of urinary incontinence in dogs. Proin requires a prescription from your veterinarian who is in the best position to evaluate if your pet will benefit from using this drug.

Proin is unavailable to be shipped to Oregon.

For:

Dogs

Benefits:

  • Is a supplement for urinary incontinence in dogs
  • Ensures sustained phenylpropanolamine levels in the blood stream and may help reduce the conditions often associated with high levels of phenylpropanolamine such as: decreased appetite, changes in heart rate, increased blood pressure, hyperexcitability

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. Proin is unavailable to be shipped to Oregon.

Brand Name:

Proin (PRN Pharmacal)

Generic Name:

Phenylpropanolamine

What is the most important information I should know about Proin:

Proin is a prescription medication for veterinary use in dogs. Proin is available as 25mg, 50mg and 75mg chewable, liver flavor tablets. Proin may cause restlessness, irritability, or loss of appetite.

What is Proin:

Proin is an adrenergic agent used as a supplemental product for urinary incontinence in dogs. Proin may also be used for purposes other than those listed in this guide.

How should this medication be given:

The usual dose for dogs is 0.4-0.8mg/pound every 12 hours. Give Proin exactly as directed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store Proin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Keep this medication away from children and pets. 

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
