Male Incontinence is a highly researched herbal formula for dogs and cats. It has been developed by a certified Master Herbalist to address the more common issues leading to urinary incontinence in male pets. These include hormone imbalance, cognitive dysfunction and debility related to aging.
The organic herbs selected for this blend are well known for their ability to support and balance the male endocrine system, act as cerebrovascular tonics, tone the tissue of the urinary tract and perform as adaptogens to promote vitality as an animal ages.
How much should I purchase?
We recommend getting enough for at least four weeks to start. This is because we are trying to strengthen and improve the functioning of various components of the body and this does not happen overnight. With this remedy we are trying to promote the health of the endocrine system including adrenal glands, cognitive function and overall vitality of glands like the thyroid.
A one ounce bottle contains 30 ml. We recommend providing this herbal remedy at least three times per day at first until desired results are seen. So, for example, a 25 pound dog will receive 3 ml daily, then a one ounce bottle will last for ten days. In this case we recommend you purchase at least the four ounce size. If you then decide the product is working for your dog or cat try to place your reorder so there is no interruption in your animal's treatment.
What to Look for in a Superior Incontinence Formula
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or have been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medicine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not really meant to.
✓ Alcohol-Free Tincture with ORGANIC Vegetable Glycerin for Animals
Our blend is formulated by a special process using low heat and organic vegetable glycerin. Tinctures are concentrated forms of a plant's constituents that are readily absorbed and utilized by your pet's body. Because your pet may not like the taste of alcohol, we use vegetable glycerin which gives our tinctures a sweet taste your animals will like. Vegetable glycerin is a carbohydrate but is metabolized differently than sugar and does not raise blood sugar levels. It is also an efficient menstruum which extracts valuable constituents from plants and makes them readily available to the body. In addition, we take the extra time and effort to use a low heat process that extracts many more constituents than just soaking in glycerin alone as is done by most other herbal companies. And, of course, the use of USDA organic vegetable glycerin ensures your pet avoids genetically modified ingredients and herbicides in their natural medicine.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

Provide 1 ml per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times per day. May be squirted directly in the mouth, placed in a small amount of favorite food or added to meals. It is desirable to provide herbal remedies such as this away from meals for better absorption when possible.
You may safely use up to 4 mls per 25 lbs 2 - 3 times daily for a short period of time depending on the severity of your animal's condition. As your animal's condition improves slowly decrease dosage to minimum effective dosage. Contact us if you have any questions.
To apply directly in mouth just pull out lower lip at back of mouth and squirt in desired amount. Don't tilt head back and squirt down throat or your pet may breath some in. Wipe off dropper before placing back in container.
For long term use go on a schedule of 5 days on and 2 days off after the first two - four weeks if this does not cause a flare up of your animal's condition. You might only be able to take one day off on Sundays for instance depending on your animal's condition. The reason for taking a break is to allow your animal's body a rest from the herbal treatment so it can safely eliminate any buildup of herbal constituents and to prevent adapting to the herbal remedy reducing its effectiveness over time.
Storage: For longer term storage keep in refrigerator. If this herbal remedy will be used over a few weeks refrigeration is not necessary.
Discontinue use if any unusual symptoms occur. If animal's condition worsens or does not improve, stop product administration and consult your veterinarian.
