Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great site! I've had my black lab on Proin for quite a few years and really helps with her incontinence. The prices on Pet meds are the best I found. Easy order and fast shipping too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for “night peeing” Read reviews and knew my 12 yr. old GShep. was having night accidents. She got too hyper and panted too much on a whole tab, She’s 100lbs. But half of 75 mg. Works great! Some nights we forget, but when I tried to stop them, it came back. Good product for the elders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I have had my girl on this for many years now and it works great. She gets 1 pill morning and night. We have a second one that is on it also and no problems with her either. Because of Covid 19 we ran out and had all kinds of leaks. 2 days after getting her back on it we were fine again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Happy! My dog, Lola, has been on Proin for about 3 years. I usually get it through my vet's office but they have been unable to get any in stock. 1-800-Pedmeds was able to fill the prescription and get it to us 2 days before we were going to run out, keeping my 13 year old fur baby dry and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well fir our Chloe Our female Ibizan mix has been using Proin for several years. Her original prescription for urinary leakage made her aggressive but with Proin she’s been her normal self. And dry. PetMeds originally told me that her Proin was on back order and would take a couple of extra weeks to send. I was prepared to go to our vet for it but the order came in two weeks early which save us some money. Great job there!

Date published: 2020-03-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works! Proin is the only product that stopped my pit bull's dripping. I'm very upset that it's suddenly "out of stock" everywhere now that the more expensive Proin ER has hit the market. She has to be on this for life and the less expensive product works so why change it? Stock regular Proin!. The biggest downfall is that a prescription is needed which vets who sell Proin for a profit don't like to give.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Medication! Dani is a 12 year old Great Dane Mix rescue. We have had her for 9 wonderful years! About a year ago, I started to notice small urine stains in my bed as she sleeps with me every night. We tried the whole diaper thing and she was fine with it, but they would slip off when she stretched out at night causing them to get caught around her legs. I was worried she would hurt herself, so we stopped using them. A friend told me about Proin. It had worked wonders for two of her elder female dogs in the past. Dani has been on Proin for 2 monts now without ONE leak. We are SO happy with this medication. It has been life changing for us. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works, our dogs been using it for years We started having incontinence and then urinary tract infections with our 11 year-old briard. Now, with Proin she's accident free with less leakage. I also give her cranberry tablets to help prevent UTIs. She's now 13 and we've been accident free. I hear this is the same medication given to geriatric humans with the same condition - perhaps not in liver flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Solution! Our lab mix Isha was born a hermaphrodite and has struggled with urinary incontinence since she was a puppy. After her spay/neuter we hoped the problem would fix - but it did not. Our vet suggested Proin and since she’s been on it, she’s had no more accidents! She takes 1 - 50mg pill each night and has been doing great! She’s been on it for almost a year now. Thanks to 1800PetMeds - I am able to get it for $20 less than they sell it at the vet and free fast shipping!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works It does what it is designed to do.
Date published: 2020-01-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well and even when in Combination We used Proin for about 4 years and then she became incontinent again, so we switched to Incurin and it alone did not work sufficiently so we added back in the Proin. We were able to do 50mg Proin and 1mg Incurin for about 6 months, then needed to increase the Incurin to the full 2mg, which sustained her for the last year of her life. So the combo really helped us at the end, even though there is a cost to pay, but worth it in the end.
