Proin®  Chewable Tablets

Generic Name:
Phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride

General Description:
Phenylpropanolamine is used in dogs for long-term management of urinary incontinence conditions. This drug improves the tone of the sphincter muscles, particularly the urethra and the bladder neck. Phenylpropanolamine capsules are available by prescription from your veterinarian.

What is this drug?
• An adrenergic agent
• Given by mouth

Reasons for prescribing:
• For long-term management of urinary incontinence (urine leakage) in dogs by tightening the bladder sphincter muscle
• May be used in combination with diethylstilbesterol (an estrogen)

What dogs/cats should not take this medication?
• Dogs with glaucoma, prostate disease, overactive thyroid, diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure
• Pets taking MAO inhibitors (Mitaban® Dip, Preventic® Flea Collars, Anipryl®). Phenylpropanolamine should not be used within 2 weeks of their use.
• Pregnant and nursing dogs
• If your pet has had an allergic reaction to phenylpropanolamine or like products before

Directions:

Read and follow the label carefully.

Give the exact amount prescribed and only as often as directed. It is usually given two or three times a day and can be used long-term.

One dose should be given at bedtime to ensure that the drug lasts all night and the pet does not have accidents throughout the night.

Phenylpropanolamine can be extremely bitter and make your pet salivate or refuse treatment. You may want to hide this medication in some food. Do not crush phenylpropanolamine capsules.

Ensure that your pet consumes the entire dose.

Do not give your dog aged cheese or use tick collars while taking phenylpropanolamine.

It may take several days of treatment before urinary incontinence improves.

This medication usually needs to be given long-term, but some pets may only need treatment for several months or seasonally.

Ideally, give the medication at the same time daily.

Call ahead for refills.

What if a dose is missed?

If a dose is missed, give it as soon as you can or urinary incontinence will reappear. If it is time already for the next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to the normal schedule. Do not give two doses at the same time.

What to tell/ask veterinarian before giving medication?

• When will your pet need to be rechecked
• What tests may need to be performed prior to and during treatment with this drug

• If your pet has experienced liver or kidney disease now or ever
