& welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

First, must say that when we have incontinent dogs, the real "best treatment" is what works best . So, if the Propalin has worked very well , then it may be the best treatment . And if it is but cost is an issue, I would just note that we can often reduce this now a days by comparison shopping among the online veterinary pharmacies (example 1, example 2). If you can find a more manageable cost, then would just need to ask her vet to write a prescription (or some will even cost match what you find online).

Otherwise, if we are looking treatments that we have similar success with that may be more cost effective , I would suggest looking into Incurin (More Info). This drug is very good at addressing this issue and tends to require lower dosing (so the medication stretches further). Its success will depend on her individual treatment response but as you can see this may be a more economical option (example).

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
