Incontinence is a difficult to manage situation when it occurs with a beloved pet, and belly bands for dogs can make taking care of this problem much easier. A dog may begin to have accidents in the house as he gets older and loses control of his bladder, and a belly band may help him control these accidents and give him time to get outside; it can also making cleanup easier when he doesn’t make it. A pet who has just had surgery and is on the road to recovery can also benefit, especially as he gets used to the longer time it takes him to get outside to relieve himself. Illness can also make a dog incontinent; a bacterial infection can cause a urinary tract infection, which results in the dog leaking urine without realizing he is doing so. In these cases, belly bands for dogs can save carpets and furniture as well as make the dog more comfortable as he recovers from his illness.
