Description

Urinary Incontinence: When Good Dogs Leak is a free course designed to help the veterinary practice team understand the factors related to urinary incontinence. Often, clients are uninformed and assume their pet has broken housetraining or is "doing it out of spite, when in fact there is a medical cause.

Each team member has a role in the process. While the attending veterinarian is responsible for the diagnosis and the treatment plan, it is crucial that the entire medical team has a strong understanding of the possible causes of the condition, and from there a solid grasp of the protocols of a sound treatment plan. The veterinarian cannot do it alone. In addition, educating the client is vital to establishing good compliance and often the client relies on team members to help clarify confusing information. When the practice speaks as a team the client is better able to understand, make decisions and comply with the treatment plan.

Urinary Incontinence: When Good Dogs Leak summarizes the canine female bladder and describes common neurologic, non-neurologic and anatomical abnormalities that may cause or contribute to urinary incontinence. Correct identification of the underlying abnormality is critical to the success of treating this frustrating condition, along with the development of an effective treatment plan.
