Bladder Control in Dogs and Cats

Bladder Control in Dogs and Cats

Herbal nutrition to help improve weak bladder control and to help prevent incontinence and urine leaking in dogs and cats. 

 

When your pet experiences renal challenges, the kidneys need to be supported and rehabilitated as well as the liver, cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system to support optimal urinary health.  

Is your pet goes from no accidents to multiple accidents indoors, chances are your pet has a urinary tract infection or may be losing control of its bladder. Some bladder control problems are caused by serious conditions that need treatment, while others may be due to the stones, urinary tract infection, age and temperament of your pet.

Small puppies and kittens do not have mature bladders and so accidents are likely to occur during potty training. Even a trained puppy might have the occasional accident as their bladders are only mature from about 6 months. If however, your perfectly house-trained pet starts urinating in the house, then it is advisable to seek veterinary attention.

Loss of bladder control can include: 

Urinary tract infections (UTI)

Kidney disease

Bladder stones

Liver disease

Drinking too much (possibly caused by another condition such as diabetes)

Congenital defects

Obesity

Old age

Alzheimer’s

Stress, anxiety or over- excitement

Other suggestions:

Never punish your pet for accidents. There is always an underlying cause, even if that cause is poor house training.

If your pet’s bladder control issues are related to house training, remember to use plenty of positive reinforcement and rewards for the correct behavior, rather than punishment for the wrong behavior.

When loss of bladder control occurs during stress, excitement or as a submissive behavior, the best thing you can do is not make a fuss over the incident, but rather ignore it. Try removing the stressor and take steps to calm your pet down.

Reduced bladder control is a common symptom in aging pets, or those suffering from Alzheimer’s. Try take your pet outside for “potty breaks” more frequently and reward them when they do urinate outside. For cats, place additional litter-trays around the house so that they are always readily available.

Many older pets are embarrassed and confused about “accidents” when they do occur, especially if they have been perfectly house trained for years. While cleaning up the mess afterwards is no fun, try not to react in a way that will make your pet feel more humiliated.

When pets are feeling unwell or have symptoms of a bladder infection, they may urinate in an unusual place to get your attention. Never ignore the message.
