What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence means that a pet suffers from involuntary urine leakage, peeing unintentionally and uncontrollably. This happens when the urethra, the tube from which urine exits the body, becomes loose and does not close tightly at will. The severity can range from occasional small urine leaks to frequent urine amounts. It causes great discomfort both for the dog and the owner. It can also cause symptoms such as skin irritation and can sometimes lead to other complications such as bladder and kidney infection.
How does the VetFoam™ treatment work?
Once injected to the dog’s urethra, VetFoam™ triggers self-repair of the damaged area and replacement of the impaired loose tissue, with new tight and functioning tissue. VetFoam™ treatment has proven to be safe, continence is immediately achieved and lasts for the long-term. VetFoam™ is injected by a certified, specialized veterinarian, in a minimally invasive procedure that requires full anesthesia.
Is it good for my dog?
VetFoam™ is superior to other urinary incontinence treatments. It is an innovative product, with the capacity to genuinely facilitate regeneration of the tissue, providing a long-term efficacy.
Current alternatives include diapers, drugs, or major surgical interventions. Diapers require multiple use and are inconvenient for the dog owner and pet. Drugs such as PPA also require inconvenient daily dosage and may have adverse side effects. Major surgical interventions have relatively low success rates and high complications rates.
Finally, VetFoam™ is safe and ensures high quality of life for the pet and its owner for a long time.
