Description

What are Incurin Tablets?

Incurin Tablets are an effective treatment for the control of estrogen-responsive urinary incontinence in dogs that have undergone surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus (ovariohysterectomy). This medication has been used effectively worldwide for more than 12 years. Incurin Tablets require a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Female Dogs

Benefits:
  • Proven effective in reducing or eliminating urinary incontinence
  • Convenient, once-a-day dosing
  • One simple starting dose for all female dogs, regardless of weight or age
  • Can be titrated to the lowest effective dose
How it works:

Incurin Tablets contain the active ingredient estriol, a natural estrogen, which increases the resting muscle tone of the urethra in female dogs and can be used in the treatment of urinary incontinence due to estrogen depletion. It is given once a day with a starting dose of two tablets for any female dog, regardless of age or weight. The dose of Incurin Tablets is then titrated down over time to the lowest effective dose.

Cautions:

Not for use in humans. Keep this and all drugs out of reach of children and pets. Incurin Tablets are only for use in female dogs that have had surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus. The safety and effectiveness of Incurin Tablets have not been evaluated in dogs less than 1 year of age, intact female dogs, male dogs, dogs used for breeding, or lactating dogs.
