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.
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.
Incurin Tablets are indicated for the control of estrogen-responsive urinary incontinence inovariohysterectomized female dogs.

After urinary incontinence is controlled, the lowest effective daily dose of Incurin Tablets should be determined by decreasing the dose in a step-wise manner from 2 mg once daily (2 tablets) to 1 mg oncedaily (1 tablet), then 0.5 mg once daily (1/2 tablet) depending upon the response of the individual dog. There should be a minimum of 7 days between each dose adjustment.
