Pseudoephedrine (like you find in the hayfever/allergy medication 'Sudtafed') is often used to 'tone' the bladder sphincter in incontinent dogs. Veterinary equivalents would be more expensive I assume (which we couldn't afford) so we gave our old border collie (=medium sized dog) 1 Sudafed a day (half pill morning & night) and were able to put off the terrible day for nearly a year. We raised the dose to a pill and a half towards the end. She finally began having fits and shut down completely (almost 16 years old - a good age!).

I should say, of course, that I'm not a vet. Please cross-reference this information for your own peace of mind. If you decide to treat your dog based on 'independent' research, introduce the medication slowly/carefully watching for any bad reaction... 'Hypertension,' for example, is a common side-effect - if it's severe you'll have to reduce or stop the treatment. All the best, Konrad.

May I please ask a few things? Age, breed, injuries? Any recent stress, diet changes, or environmental changes? Used for breeding? How often/chronic? We'll start with that.

Tips for Living With Incontinence

Drink Plenty of Fluids
People often think that if they suffer from incontinence, they should be restricting their fluid intake. But this is rarely the cause of the incontinence.
Sometimes dehydration ie not drinking enough can cause bladder leakage as ***** becomes concentrated and irritates the bladder.
You should drink between 6-8 cups a day of drink but avoid fizzy drinks, tea, coffee and alcohol as they can all irritate the bladder.
Eat a High Fibre Diet
It might not seem connected but if you are constipated and don't have regular bowel movements, you are much more likely to suffer from faecal incontinence which is very uncomfortable and embarrasing.
Try eating a high fibre diet for good health and regular bowels.
Good foods include; fruit, drinking water, whole grain cereals and high-fibre breads.
Toilet Habits
Try waiting until your bladder feels really full before you go to the toilet. Even though going very frequently might seem like a good way of preventing accidents, it's actually teaching your bladder to feel the urge to ******* even when it isn't full.
Try and relax when you use the bathroom. Feeling under pressure or trying to force your body to speed up with not help empty your bladder properly.
Keep a Diary
If you're having problem with incontinence, you might find it helpful to keep an incontinence diary. Use it as a way to keep a note of the times of day your suffer incontinence and what you ate or drank before that.
This can help you find patterns that might allow you to avoid some of the incontinence. It can also be a useful tool to show your doctor.
Pelvic Floor Exercises
It's a myth that pelvic floor exercises are only for pregnant women. Use regular pelviv floor exercises to tighten your muscles. These muscles support the bladder and by strengthening them, you can help prevent leakage of *****.

Can you buy re-usable incontinence pads or do they have to be disposable?

Most of the incontinence pads sold are disposable. But you can buy re-usable ones. They are much more expensive to start with but then can be machine or hand washed many times and ultimately this saves both money and benefits the environment.

Name wrong!

Unfortunatlly, you can't rename your dog. This game is supposed to be as realistic as possible. And most dogs only respond to one name...

If you want to restart your game and get a totally new dog, then when the screen says Nintendo in red letters and you hear dog barks, then press 'L, R, A, X, Y, B, SELECT, and START" at the same time.

Hope it helps~
