These signs can be symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections in dogs
Cranberry alone has shown a very high propensity to reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the urinary tract walls. Research has shown that the effect is caused by a class of compounds called Proanthocyanidins.
Type A Proanthocyanidins are naturally occurring and are extracted from the North American cranberry. Type A Proanthocyanidins have been shown to prevent bacteria from attaching to the lining of the urethra and bladder, thereby allowing bacterial to be flushed out by urination –
N Acetyl Glucosamine
N Acetyl Glucosamine is a naturally occurring constituent of the bladder and urethra wall linings. It is used here to ensure that your dog is not short of this essential compound in ensuring good bladder health.
Canine urinary tract infections (UTIs), also know as bladder infections or cystitis, are a type of bacterial infection that can be caused by a number of different bacteria. They occur when bacteria enter the urinary tract from the outside and are able to colonise a section of the tract.
Canine urinary tract infections can be uncomfortable for your dog. Urination can become especially painful, as the passing of urine becomes difficult due to the inflammation caused by bacterial colonies.
The diagnosis of a urinary tract infection will require your vet to perform a urine analysis (where a sample of urine is taken and then tested for the presence of bacteria).
How is it treated?
We strongly advocate that Veterinary diagnosis should be sought. Treatment from the Vet will be by a course of antibiotics.
Unfortunately it can be a recurring condition in many dogs and you may find yourself going back to the Vets a month or two later. Further antibiotics will be needed.
