Diapers and panties for incontinent dogs

For all these reasons we must take care of our faithful four-legged friend with all the love and attention possible, the same that they give us.
It is better to avoid a do-it-yourself remedy by trying to adapt a baby diaper, because it is not designed for them and without the comfort they need, bearing in mind that they are forced to wear something that is not in their nature, so it is essential that the use is as simple as possible.
Diapers designed for them, for example, are equipped with a hole for the tail, to make it easier for them when they wear them so that they can move around as if they were not wearing them.
Most diapers on sale have a Velcro fastener on the back so that they are easy to use.
All you need to do is put your tail through the hole and pass the diaper between your legs. Then you’ll need to close the diaper using the Velcro on the back.
Also for this type of diapers you can choose the most suitable one for the size of the hairy family: from Xs (ideal for puppies, Pekinese, Chihuahuas and Maltese), to Xl or XXL for dogs like Greyhounds or Dobermans.
There are two modes depending on the duration of use: according to the needs you can choose between disposable models, to be thrown in the trash after use or washable versions.
The latter type of diaper or hygienic panties is able to absorb a bladder drain full of your dog’s urine. In addition, for older dogs or dogs with partial incontinence, they can also be used for a whole day.
The waterproof outer part is made of laminated polyurethane, while the inner part in contact with the dog is made of a very soft microfleece fabric. The absorbent part is made of microfibre and contains an antibacterial agent to control odours.
If, after use, you need to wash it together with other things, first soak it in cold water, or rinse it in the washing machine with cold water. For females in heat, it is recommended to replace and wash as needed. Once used, the diaper should be washed in hot water at 60 degrees with a spoonful of detergent.
Try not to exaggerate with the use of bleach, stain removers, an excessive dose of detergent and fabric softeners that can make the tissues lose absorbency or even ruin them.
It is preferable to dry them in the sun, but if the season does not allow it, they can also be put in a tumble dryer on a gentle cycle or next to a non direct heat radiator.
