---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

 

Incontinence in Dogs

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Incontinence is the inability of your dog to control urination due to a physical problem.  This is  not the same as submissive urination which is a social signal.  It is also not a behavioral issue.  Incontinent dogs appear unaware that they are losing urine.  They may stand up and you find they have been lying in a puddle.  Their tails and back legs may be wet, you may find a trail of urine on the floor or their beds may be soaked.  

Incontinence can be a result of old age which can cause a loss of bladder control.  Other causes can include: hormone imbalance particularly in spayed females but also in other dogs, spinal injury resulting in nerve damage, urinary tract infections and physical displacement of the bladder upwards toward the pelvic bone. 

Minor problems, especially those that occur overnight, can be helped by limiting your dog's water intake before bed.  Stop giving him water a couple of hours beforehand, make sure he gets a walk to eliminate right before bed and take him out first thing in the morning.  Placing your dog on a rigid schedule of eating, drinking and walking can improve regularity and prevent accidents. 

In more stubborn cases, your veterinarian can diagnose and suggest treatment depending on the problem.  These can include hormone (estrogen or testosterone) therapy, antibiotics to treat infections, medications to improve sphincter control or, in rare cases, corrective surgery.
