Natural Relief for Your Dog’s Urinary Tract Infections

Does your dog suffer from urinary tract infections (UTIs)? Just like humans, dogs can experience discomfort and pain from UTIs, making it crucial to recognize and treat them promptly. Here’s a guide to understanding UTIs in dogs and how to naturally manage and prevent them.

UTI Symptoms

  • Frequent urge to urinate
  • Scanty urine with a strong smell
  • Painful urination
  • Blood in the urine
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Lethargy

Causes of UTIs in Dogs UTIs in dogs are often caused by bacterial infections, which can result from stress, diet, immunological deficiencies, or other infections. Poor-quality dry foods can contribute to alkaline urine, creating an environment conducive to bacterial growth. Other factors, such as bladder stones, injuries, or tumors, can also lead to UTIs.

Natural Dietary Solutions Switching your dog to a high-quality, balanced diet with a high natural meat content can help prevent and treat urinary problems. For example, Evanger’s Chunky Chicken Casserole offers a nutritious option that supports urinary tract health.

Natural Remedies Instead of immediately resorting to antibiotics, which can have unwanted side effects, consider these herbal remedies that are effective at treating UTIs in pets:

  • Cranberries or blueberries: Prevent bacteria from attaching to the urinary tract lining.
  • Goldenseal: Astringent and supportive of the digestive system.
  • Juniper berry: Increases kidney filtration and urine production.
  • Parsley leaf: Antimicrobial, antiseptic, and muscle relaxant.
  • Uva Ursi: Powerful natural astringent that attacks pathogens.
  • Marshmallow root: Anti-inflammatory and soothing agent.

Prevention and Treatment at Home

  • Encourage drinking more water.
  • Supplement with probiotics, garlic, and herbs like parsley leaf, uva ursi, and cranberry.
  • Offer cooling foods such as raw fruits, vegetables, and yogurt.
  • Avoid foods that can aggravate UTIs, such as asparagus, spinach, raw carrots, tomatoes, and dairy products.

Consider Pet Insurance If your dog is prone to UTIs, consider getting pet insurance to help with future medical expenses. Embrace Pet Insurance offers coverage for pets with curable pre-existing conditions like bladder infections.
