Incontinence & Athletic Supporter

This helpful hint comes from Cindy, owner of La Paw Spa. I think it's a super-neat idea.

For incontinent (incontinent with urine) girl or boy dogs....use an athletic supporter (a "jock strap") and a sanitary napkin. You put the "cup" area of the athletic supporter in the dogs groin area, and the straps go over the dog's back. Put the sanitary napkin in the correct spot inside the cup, and presto! You've got a "diaper" that allows lots of air circulation and is easy to change.

She used an adult-small size for her 75 pound GSD.

She said you can also cut the staps and put velcro on them, so you can easily open and close the straps (instead of pulling the supporter on like a pair of pants each time).

I just can't picture it. Seems like the tail would make it crooked. I could always picture the boy's underwear idea really well with the tail through the fly. :smart:

Yes, but a jock strap is so different from that, and yes, not as familiar to most people.
