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 fresher 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!

Berberis also helps to treat the symptoms of diarrhoea, especially if related to E. coli infection.
