Pet diapers, which are usually used for dogs, can be a great idea in most cases. You can use these diapers to prevent your pet from soiling the carpet or getting on your lawn and urinating on it – which brings with itself a lot of gardening related problems. Also, there are benefits associated with the pets themselves as well.
The way pet diapers work is very similar to how diapers are used for humans, in the case of babies or seniors who have a health disability that doesn’t allow them to deal with their regular daily activities. Senior pets go through the same issue, as even cats will sometimes find it difficult, due to sickness or an inability to move properly, to reach the litter box in time. Planet Urine stocks both dog and smaller cat diapers as well.
Pet diapers are placed on your pet to help avoid accidents. They can normally be kept on for up to 8 hours, after which they have to be replaced in order to prevent infection. Your pet’s sensitive skin can easily be affected by both the diaper’s fabric and by the urine and fecal matter that gathers there. In most cases, however, you’ll see that changing your pet’s diaper can become a quick and painless process once you both get used to it. Also, your pet will even feel better, since they won’t deal with the emotional distress of having an accident once every few hours.
