Lack of Bladder Control in Dogs
If the condition can be treated with medication, there are several options available. Antibiotics are used if the incontinence is due to inflammation of the urinary tract or bladder. Incontinence caused by obesity will require a weight management plan and possibly dietary supplements.
For serious medical cases, surgery may be performed to remove an obstruction in the bladder or tract, or for reparation of the bladder or urinary tract.
Living and Management
Most dogs suffering from incontinence will respond well to medications and will have a full recovery. Inflammation is one of the most common issues associated with this medical condition, but it, too, can be treated with topical ointments and antibiotics.
There are currently no known preventative measures for this medical condition.
