Directions For Use

Directions for Use

For oral administration.

A relationship between final effective dose and body weight has not been established and therefore the dose has to be determined for each dog on an individual basis.

The following dosing schedule is advised: start treatment with 1 tablet (1 mg estriol) every day. If treatment is successful, lower the dose to half a tablet a day. If initial treatment is not successful, increase the dose to 2 tablets a day to be given in one dose. Some dogs do not need daily treatment; treatment every other day may be tried, once the effective daily dose has been established.

The minimum dose given should not be less than 0.5 mg per dog per day. Ensure the dose used to achieve the therapeutic effect is as low as possible. Do not use more than 2 tablets per dog per day. If no response to treatment is obtained the diagnosis should be reconsidered in order to investigate other causes for the incontinence such as neurological disorders, bladder neoplasia, etc.

Animals should be re-examined every 6 months during treatment.

Active Ingredient

Incurin Tablets 1 mg (30 tablets) ingredients

Each tablet contains 1 mg Estriol PhEur.

Side Effects

Side effects of Incurin Tablets 1 mg (30 tablets)

Do not use in intact bitches, as the efficacy has only been established in ovariohysterectomised bitches.

Animals showing a polyuria-polydipsia syndrome should not be treated with Incurin.

Oestrogenic effects such as swollen vulva, swollen mammary glands and/or attractiveness to males and vomiting have been observed at the highest recommended dose of 2 mg per dog. The incidence is about 5 - 9 %. These effects are reversible after lowering the dose.

In rare cases vaginal bleeding occurred.

In very rare cases development of alopecia has also been observed.

In case of oestrogenic effects, the dose should be lowered.

High doses of oestrogen may have a tumour-promoting effect in target organs with oestrogen receptors (mammary gland).

my 15 year old bitch was being caught short with her bladder,at first I thought it was her age but had a word with our vet as she was always so fastidious. The vet prescribed Incurin and said it might help,it did after 7 doses of 1 tablet she seemed to be able to hold her wee betterso I lowered the dose to a half tablet. Only side effect was she vomitted her food up 2 days running on 9th day of treatment,dont know if it is a seperate sympton of a tummy upset or if it is a genuine side effect,am taking her back to vets for check up

Q & A

Q. Would you send incurin to Spain for me please. My pharmacy has now advised me this drug is no longer available. Is there an alternative if that is the case.
A.

The only other option I'm aware of would be Propalin Syrup (http://www.myvetmeds.co.uk/dog/urinary-dog/propalin-syrup-30-ml.htm).

Incurin and Propalin are prescription medicines - this mean that we would need a prescription from your vet before we could dispense either of them.
Our guidance from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons states that we can only dispense in accordance with a prescription written by a MRCVS. It may be that some Spanish vets may be MsRCVS in which case if they are in the RCVS' register of veterinary surgeons then we could dispense accordingly. If they are not in the register then we can not.
I hope this makes sense. If you need further clarification then please let me know.
Once you've got a valid prescription, there will be extra postage charges to pay. If you could give us a call on 01237 426409 in Office Hours, we can discuss this further with yourself and make the arrangements over the phone.

I hope this helps!
