Propalin is used to treat urinary incontinence in neutered bitches. Propalin is used in cases where urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence (SMI) is the underlying cause of the incontinence. Propalin contains phenylpropanolamine which stimulates the nerves that control the urethra and cause it to hold closed more firmly, therefore preventing the leaking of urine. Propalin is only effective in neutered bitches and is not useful in cases of inappropriate urination with underlying behavioural causes. Treatment with Propalin is usually lifelong.
