Incurin is used to treat spayed female dogs for urinary incontinence. Short-acting estrogen is used to counteract the loss of estrogen in dogs suffering from urinary problems. This markedly reduces, sometimes even eliminates, leakage and accidents caused by urinary incontinence.
What is Incurin (Estriol) 1 mg, 30 Tablets?
Incurin treats urinary incontinence in spayed female dogs with short acting estrogen that counteracts the loss suffered by dogs with urinary issues. This significantly reduces and most times eliminates the leakage and accidents resulting from urinary incontinence. The goal is to give the minimum dose that controls your dog’s symptoms. If the initial dose is working after this time period, try to reduce the dose to ½tablet per day, then ½tablet on alternate days.
