Canine Incontinence Support -120 tablets Urinary incontinence may be caused by an underdeveloped urinary system or may arise as a part of the aging process. Estrogen deficiency is the most common cause of incontinence in spayed female dogs and may result in weakened muscles in the bladder and sphincter causing urine leakage. Bovine ovary powder nutritionally provides natural estrogens and works synergistically with the phytoestrogens provided by licorice, wild yam and other ingredients. Research indicates that phyto-estrogens may help maintain the bladder and sphincter muscles and improve muscle tone.

From the author: This article examines the relationships among family stress, family capabilities, and the health status of 53 children diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. Assessments were done at an outpatient diabetes clinic of family coping, resources, and stress; disease-related knowledge; metabolic control (Hb|A.sub.1~); and endogenous insulin (C peptide). Results indicated that higher levels of family stress and lower levels of family resources as reported by fathers were significantly associated with poor metabolic control. Multiple regression analyses revealed that levels of family stress and resources were more strongly related to metabolic control than were disease variables such as C peptide levels. Moreover, family stress was directly associated with metabolic control, and family resources showed indirect linkages. Findings suggest that family stress and resources are potential areas for social work intervention in children recently diagnosed with diabetes.
