Proin ER incontinence drug debuts in November
The once-a-day prescription medication for dogs is expected to help with owner compliance.
PRN Pharmacal has scheduled the release of new once-a-day Proin ER, a treatment for urethral sphincter mechanism incontinence in dogs.
Three dosages, for dogs weighing 10 to 80 pounds, will be available in November. A fourth formulation, for dogs weighing 81 to 125 pounds, will be ready in January 2020, the company reported.
Proin ER (phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride extended-release tablets) delivers an alternative to original twice-a-day Proin.
“Veterinarians are always concerned about pet parent compliance and have asked us about a once-a-day product for years,” said Donna Logan, vice president and general manager at PRN Pharmacal. “Thanks to the innovative minds in our development lab, we have created the first extended-release, chewable tablet for dogs in the animal health industry, enabling us to create a once-a-day product to help even more veterinarians and pet parents with their dogs’ urinary incontinence.”
Proin ER will be packaged in 30-count bottles.
