Proin general information

What is Proin used for?

Proin is used to treat urinary incontinence in spayed female dogs. Involuntary loss of urine can occur in male and female dogs at any age but particularly in spayed females. More than 20% of spayed females are affected and mid to large-sized breeds are also more prone. Proin is an effective and palatable oral treatment for long-term management of urinary incontinence in dogs and you should be able to see an improvement within a week. 

How does Proin work?

Proin contains phenylpropanolamine, a sympathomimetic alpha-adrenergic agonist that mimics the effects of nerves of the sympathetic nervous system. These nerves respond to sympathomimetic amines like catecholamine and adrenaline. Urinary incontinence is usually caused by loss of muscle tone in the urethral sphincter, which is the muscle that controls urine flow out of the bladder. Phenylpropanolamine in Proin stimulates the alpha-adrenergic receptors in the urethral muscle, which increases tone of the sphincter muscle resulting in tightening of the urethra, to preventing urine leakage. 

What does Proin contain?

Proin contains the active ingredient phenylpropanolamine (50mg/ml), used to treat urinary incontinence in dogs. 

Treating urinary incontinence with Proin

Proin contains phenylpropanolamine, used to treat urinary incontinence in dogs. Urinary incontinence is usually caused by loss of muscle tone in the urethral sphincter, which is the muscle that controls urine flow out of the bladder. Phenylpropanolamine in Proin stimulates the alpha adrenergic receptors in the urethral muscle which increases tone of the sphincter muscle resulting in tightening of the urethra to preventing urine leakage. Involuntary loss of urine can occur in male and female dogs at any age but particularly in spayed females. Proin is an effective oral treatment for long-term management of urinary incontinence in dogs. 

What are the side effects of Proin?

The most commonly reported side effects for dogs taking Proin, which mimic the results of excessive stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system include: anorexia, aggressive behaviour, restlessness, irritability, tremors, tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension, and urinary retention. Lethargy and loss of appetite have been reported in a dog following an overdose.

Missed dose of Proin

If you miss a dose of Proin give it to your dog as soon as you remember, unless it is time to take the next dose, then skip the missed dose. Do not give a double dose.
