Incontinence in dogs can happen at any age and is rarely the result of inadequate house training. When you use a protocol of natural dogs health, this problem can be prevented and successfully treated.
Incontinence in dogs, just as it is in people, is an inability to hold the urine from passing. There are a variety of causes. The common ones are an unhealthy diet, insensitive puppy potty training, the result of sterilisation especially in the female, confining a dog inside for too long which weakens the bladder sphincter, a back injury or a bladder infection.
Scolding your dog for urinating in the house is pointless. Not only that, it will cause anxiety in your dog, which will further exacerbate the problem. Unusual dog behaviour is always be an indication that something is wrong. Look beyond your displeasure.
A veterinary diagnose may include a urine test, a blood test, an X-ray and an ultrasound. A bladder infection is common whenever there is a renal problem. The infection is not the cause of the problem, merely the result. Taking antibiotics at this time is likely to depress your dog’s immune system, preventing him from naturally healing himself.
Some breeds of dogs can have a structural defect in their ureter, but this is often of little concern if the problem has just arisen.
Let’s look at ways you can prevent or treat
Puppy potty training is often with little regard to the puppy’s needs. Puppies need close contact with their pack – you and the family. Yet puppies are often confined to solitary confinement in the laundry or a crate, especially at night or when you are out. This is a severe punishment which causes your puppy such great anxiety, he may never fully recover from the emotional upset.
Sterilisation is a common cause of dog incontinence in later life. This problem, along with, emotional traumas, injury and a weak sphincter can all be treated under professional homeopathic treatment.
However, when the diet is unhealthy, this acts on the contributing, or maintaining factor. Feeding your dog a quality, natural diet can resolve this disquieting problem. Learn to use a protocol of natural dogs health and your dog will be healthier and your bank balance happier.
