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 she gets older and loses control of her bladder, and a belly band may help her control these accidents and give her time to get outside; it can also making cleanup easier when she doesn’t make it. A pet who has just had surgery and is on the road to recovery can also benefit, especially as she gets used to the longer time it takes her to get outside to relieve herself. 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 she is doing so. In these cases, belly bands for dogs can save carpets and furniture as well as make the dog more comfortable as she recovers from her illness.
