Pet diapers can be very useful because they can prevent stains on the carpet and other surfaces, but also unwanted mating. However, if used incorrectly, they can cause more problems than they solve.
When to use pet diapers
When it comes to pet diapers, you must understand that they are not an alternative to potty or litter box training. Unless your vet says otherwise, they are intended for short-term use only.
Small puppies may need diapers, until they are taught to relieve nature properly. Diapers can also be used for animals suffering from incontinence – a medical problem that makes bladder control impossible. Common causes of incontinence are old age, physical abnormalities or hormonal problems.
There are other short-term situations in which using diapers is appropriate:
- When you go with your pet to a friend’s house
