Urinary System Issues in Dogs

 

 

There are many problems that can affect a dog’s lower urinary system. The most common lower urinary tract disease in dogs over seven years of age is incontinence related to a weak urinary sphincter muscle, allowing urine to “leak” out. Bacterial infections, cancer, trauma or even obstruction of the urethra, the tube that allows urine to pass from the bladder to the outside of the body, can occur.

Signs of Urinary Tract Problems

1. Frequent Urination

You may notice that when you’re gone, your normally well-behaved dog is peeing near the door and producing a large volume of urine.

2. Difficulty Urinating

When dogs get UTIs, they may strain or have difficulty urinating, it may be painful for them to urinate, and they may have blood in their urine.

3. Other Symptoms

Dribbling urine; Crying out while urinating; Frequently or obsessively licking the genital area.

Determining the Cause of UTIs in Dogs

Your vet will analyze a urine sample for the presence of white blood cells, which signal infection, or crystals, which suggest that the dog may have bladder stones. A urinalysis is a start, but culturing the urine — taking a sample and letting bacteria grow — will let the doctors to know for sure if there’s an infection and identify the bacteria causing it. It usually takes a few days to get the results of a urine culture.

How to Prevent UTIs in Dogs

Getting more water into your dog is never a bad thing. A drinking fountain for pets could be a great idea. Dogs are generally attracted to running water, so a fountain may encourage them to drink more. Also probiotics are known to help prevent recurring UTIs. Probiotics are thought to help by displacing the bacteria causing the infection and enhancing the immune system’s response to infection-causing bacteria. PranaPets.com's homeopathic formula for UTI Support helps to relieve symptoms of Pet UTIs such as burning, frequent urination and accidents.
