Symptoms of UTI infections in dogs & cats
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) in dogs & cats are uncomfortable and extremely painful. They tend to be more common in cats than dogs and can be caused by bacterial infection, urolithiasis (stones and crystals in the urinary tract and bladder) or a change in urinary pH (alkaline or acidity value) that may cause inflammation of the bladder wall. Recurring UTI infections are common in pets with diabetes. UTIs often recur and can lead to more serious kidney infections if left untreated.
Symptoms of UTI infections include:
- Straining to urinate
- Obvious pain or discomfort when urinating
- Constantly licking their genitals
- Frequent urination without passing much urine
- Urinating in unusual places
- Cloudy or bloody urine
- Fever and loss of condition
Conventional treatment of UTI's will depend on the specific cause of the problem. In many cases, antibiotics are prescribed which invariably relieve the animal's symptoms rather speedily. However antibiotics tend to have a general weakening effect on the immune system which can cause further problems, especially in the long-term and particularly if they are prescribed regularly for recurrent infections. Anti-inflammatories are also prescribed to relieve discomfort and decrease inflammation of the bladder.
Additionally, your vet may prescribe a specific urinary diet for your pet. This is often indicated in cases of crystals in the bladder, The diets work by changing the pH of the urine to either become less or more acidic. Some, but not all crystals can be dissolved if the correct diet is found - but in certain cases surgical removal of the stones and crystals may be the only option.
The natural way
Water is the best preventative for bladder problems. The more fresh cool water your pet drinks, the more dilute his or her urine will become and the less likely infection or bladder stones are to develop. Leave fresh bowls of cool water around the house to promote drinking. You can even add water to pet food or dry food to supplement water intake. Encourage your dog to urinate frequently – try walks outside, or letting them play in the garden. Animals who are made to wait to urinate are at more risk for bladder problems. Try cutting a doggie door, or ask someone else to let them outside if you are at work. Lastly, as bladder infections are common, keep your pet’s immune system in tip-top shape by following healthy nutrition (organic where possible) and giving them plenty of exercise, fresh air and sunshine!

Management tips for UTI/bladder infections in dogs & cats
- Make sure that your pet has plenty of clean, filtered water. Cats can be fussy drinkers and may only want to drink from a running tap, out of your glass of water or from rain puddles – (such is the finicky feline). During a bladder infection encourage your pet to drink as the bladder needs to be flushed out
- Make sure that you keep kitty’s litter tray clean and be cautious when changing brands of cat litter. If your feline doesn’t like his/her new cat litter they will refuse to use the litter tray and by holding urine in their bladder for an extended period of time they are predisposed to urinary tract infections
- If your pet suddenly develops a urinary tract infection try and determine the cause for this. Most bladder infections are not caused by bacteria but arise due to changes in pH that cause inflammation and discomfort. A change in diet, bad weather that stops your pet going out for regular wees, or even stressful events in their home environment can trigger a bout of cystitis in an otherwise healthy pet.
- Ensure your pet is eating a balanced, high quality diet with plenty of raw and unprocessed food, (preferably organic), and avoid onions as they can be toxic to animals. If your pet is on a prescription diet feed only this diet, by adding anything to it, or not feeding this as the only source of food it’s stabilising effects on the urine pH will be ineffective
- Use Immunity and Liver Support capsules to boost your pet's immune functioning and resistance against disease and infection.
