A Common Condition in Dogs

Tuesday, May 19, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

It’s not uncommon for our pets to get sick every now and then. One of the more common conditions in dogs is an infection of the urinary tract. If left untreated, urinary tract infections can lead to even more serious bladder and kidney issues. This could put your dog at great risk. A healthy bladder is always free of bacteria. Symptoms of a urinary tract infection include:

  • Frequent urination in small quantities.
  • Accidents in the home because of the inability to hold urine.
  • Foul smelling urine.
  • Blood in the urine.

It’s important to take your dog to the vet immediately as that the appropriate tests will be run and the proper diagnosis made. Urinary tract infections are treated with pet medication such as antibiotics. Typically, your dog will be placed on a two week cycle to ensure that all of the bacteria is eradicated. Don’t delay treatment for your dog. Take him to the vet as soon as you notice any symptoms.
