Weak Bladder in Dogs / Weak Bladder in Cats

Herbal nutrition to help address symptoms of urine leakage in dogs and cats with urinary incontinence.

In renal challenges, the kidneys need to be supported nutritionally as well as to lend nutritional support to the natural rehabilitation of the kidneys and other important tissues, when dysfunction presents. Nutritional support must also be given to related organs and systems including the liver and the cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system.

Urinary Incontinence is uncontrolled leakage or dribbling of urine from the bladder. It is fairly common in spayed female dogs and cats as well as neutered male dogs and cats a well as senior pets. 

If your pet is suffering from urinary incontinence, puddles of urine will appear when your pet is not actively trying to urinate. Urine may also leak out when your pet jumps, gets excited or when he or she gets up from lying down. Your pet may even dribble when relaxing or sleeping. 

Urinary incontinence is most often due to inadequate closure of the urethral sphincter, which is a circle of muscles that contracts to stop urine from flowing out of the bladder. Incontinence may develop from a spinal injury due to damage to the nerve supply of the bladder, or from chronic infection. 

Other common causes of leaking urine include:

Cystitis

Bladder stones

Bladder tumors 

Submissive behavior can also be characterized by episodes of incontinence.

Often the hair around the vulva or prepuce will be wet or you might notice the smell of urine. Your pet may be unaware of its inability to retain urine and will appear otherwise healthy if the underlying cause for the incontinence is not due to injury or disease.

After being spayed, the uterus and the ovaries are removed (ovariohysterectomy), causing the levels of oestradiol decrease in your pet's body. This decrease in oestradiol causes the tissues of the urogenital system to shrink and as a result, the urethral sphincter does not close as tightly as it would and urine leakage occurs. Pets with urinary incontinence are sometimes described as having "weak bladders".

Helpful suggestions:

Ensure your pet has regular bathroom breaks with sufficient time to relieve. Pets that are not allowed frequent bathroom breaks may be at greater risk of a weak bladder.

Ensure regular, adequate exercise

Feed a balanced, holistic, premium diet that is free of corn, wheat, soy, inferior proteins, preservatives and colorants

Ensure that your pet always has plenty of fresh, filtered water

Take time out to have fun with your pet. It relieves stress for you both!

Conventional Remedies:

Your vet will likely try to determine the underlying cause for urinary incontinence such as disease or injury.

Incontinence due to low levels of oestradiol is usually treated with hormone supplements such as diethylstilboestrol (DES) or with drugs that act on the muscles of the urethral sphincter to improve tone and maximize urethral closure pressure. 

Both of these treatments are not without side effects with DES causing marked suppression of the bone marrow and the other drugs affecting the heart or causing hypertension, restlessness and anorexia.
