You might have heard the term “sildenafil” used in place of Viagra, but you may not know what this is. Here’s a quick primer on this commonly prescribed medication for dogs.

What is it? The makers of this drug (Viagra) sells it under a variety of brand names. Most often used as a drug to treat erectile dysfunction in men, it is also used to treat excessive urination in dogs.

What causes it to work? It works by preventing the brain from signaling to the animal’s sexual organs that there is an emergency. In other words, this medication prevents the dogs’ penises from becoming erect when there’s an emergency, like a bladder infection.

How are these medications prescribed? Most veterinarians prescribe this drug when your dog has not urinated in 48 hours or when his urine is blood-stained or gray. The treatment can be given as a single dose or in a variety of ways.

A single dose can be given as an oral solution, and the dog can take the medication several times throughout the day until the problem is solved. The recommended time for this medication is between three and five hours before you plan to go to bed. This is sometimes longer than necessary, however, depending on how your dog reacts to the medication.

Another option is sildenafil in a topical form. This takes a little bit longer to show results, although some veterinarians recommend a topical treatment before starting with oral medication. This option should be carefully examined by your veterinarian before deciding whether or not this is the best route to go.

Other options are more drastic. A veterinarian might inject your dog with the medication. To be effective, this treatment should be administered during the early stages of the problem, so the dog doesn’t become anxious when the medication is given. As your dog grows more accustomed to the injection, the effects of the medication can become stronger.

Another option is to use numbing agents to numb the dog’s penis. This option isn’t recommended for many dogs because it does have some potential for injury to the dog’s genital area. In addition, the numbing agent can interfere with the effects of the sildenafil for dogs treatment.

How can I tell if my dog is ready to start the treatment? By now you’ve probably seen the signs in your dog: urine that is blood-stained or gray, urine that isn’t quite as bright red as it should be, and a reluctance to urinate. Your vet will be able to tell if your dog is ready to try this medication by watching him closely and by observing your dog’s behavior while taking the medication.

It can take some time for your dog to see the results of taking sildenafil for dogs. However, most dogs start to feel a little better after one to two days of the medication. Your dog may seem to have a sense of relief or security as the effects of the drug begin to kick in.

Unfortunately, medication is only a short-term fix for your dog’s problem. He needs to have a long-term plan to prevent urinary incontinence, including treating the underlying problem (like your dog’s diet), and improving his overall health. In addition, your dog needs to have regular veterinary visits, in order to check the blood-filtering system of the dog and to make sure that the vet can see any abnormalities that could indicate an underlying problem that needs further evaluation.

Once your dog is on sildenafil for dogs, he should continue to get treatment as directed by the vet to avoid worsening the situation. The most common side effects of sildenafil for dogs include headaches, nausea, nervousness, and skin irritation.
