    Urinary Incontinence in Dogs

    How Can I Manage Urinary Incontinence?

    • Pile clean blankets and towels in your dog’s favorite sleeping spot, or put waterproof pads under her bedding to absorb any moisture.
    • Take your dog for more frequent walks, including first thing in the morning and shortly after she wakes from a nap.
    • Consider using doggie diapers, which are available at many pet stores.
    • Please consult with your vet before limiting your dog’s water intake.
    • Provide proper hygiene to prevent any related skin infections.
    • Always monitor your pet’s condition, since it can quickly accelerate to infection, especially in elderly dogs.
