Urilin general information

What is Urilin used for?

Urilin syrup is used to treat urinary incontinence in spayed female dogs.  Involuntary loss of urine can occur in male and female dogs at any age but is particularly common in spayed females, due to weakened muscles of the sphincters controlling urine flow from the bladder following spaying, which is surgical removal of the uterus and ovaries.  Urinary incontinence can cause redness and irritation of the surrounding skin and the first signs of urinary incontinence often start with licking of the irritated area and can lead to skin infection and bladder infection if untreated.  More than 20% of spayed females are affected and mid to large-sized breeds are also more prone.  Urilin syrup is an effective and palatable oral treatment for long-term management of urinary incontinence in dogs and you should be able to see an improvement within a week.

How does Urilin work?

Urilin syrup contains phenylpropanolamine, a sympathomimetic alpha-adrenergic agonist that mimics the effects of nerves of the sympathetic nervous system.  These nerves respond to sympathomimetic amines like catecholamine and adrenaline.  Urinary incontinence is usually caused by loss of muscle tone in the urethral sphincter, which is the muscle that controls urine flow out of the bladder.  Phenylpropanolamine in Urilin syrup stimulates the alpha-adrenergic receptors in the urethral muscle, which increases tone of the sphincter muscle resulting in tightening of the urethra, to prevent urine leakage.

What does Urilin contain?

Urilin syrup contains the active ingredient phenylpropanolamine (50mg/ml), used to treat urinary incontinence in dogs.  Urilin syrup also contains sodium methyl parahydroxybenzoate (E219) 1.5 mg, sodium propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E217) 0.15 mg, maltitol liquid, saccharin sodium, citric acid monohydrate (E330), purified water.

What are the side effects of Urilin?

The most commonly reported side effects for dogs taking Urilin, which mimic the results of excessive stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system include: anorexia, aggressive behaviour, restlessness, irritability, tremors, tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmia, hypertension, and urinary retention.  Lethargy and loss of appetite have also been reported following overdose.

When should Urilin not be used?

You should not give Urilin to your dog if your dog:

  • shows signs of allergic reaction or hypersensitivity to phenylpropanolamine or any ingredients in Urilin
  • has a pre-existing medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure disease or kidney problems, glaucoma or diabetes mellitus
  • has a history of epilepsy
  • is pregnant or lactating
  • is less than one year old
  • is receiving medications for cardiovascular disease or any other sympathomimetic drugs.

How should Urilin be given?

You should give Urilin syrup to your dog three times daily by measuring out drops from the squeezable plastic bottle.  Add the correct dose of Urilin syrup to your dog’s food or administer directly into your dog’s mouth.  The recommended dose is 1 mg/kg body weight (2.2 pounds) which is 0.1mL per 5 kg (11 pounds) of body weight.  This is equivalent to one drop for every 2.34 kg body weight (5 pounds).

Missed dose of Urilin

If you miss a dose of Urilin syrup give it to your dog as soon as you remember, unless it is time to give the next dose, then skip the missed dose.  Do not give a double dose.

How should Urilin be stored?

You should store your Urilin below 25°C in a cool dry place.
