Bladder infections usually occur as bacteria normally living in and around the lower urinary tract ascend (go up) the urinary tracts through the urethra and infect the normally sterile bladder. Bacterial infections of the urinary tract will result in symptoms that include fever, backache, painful and frequent urination, lethargy, and blood in the urine. Causes could be related to stress and diet, but may also include immunological deficiency or fungal or protozoan infections. Other causes could be bladder stones, injuries, or tumours.
As soon as the bladder gets inflamed for any reason, you’ll notice that your dog frequently tries to urinate. He or she will often end up urinating in inappropriate places, such as throughout the home rather than in the litter box or outside.
Dry commercial foods are a major culprit in producing alkaline urine, so one of the first steps you can take to prevent and treat urinary problems is changing your pet’s food to a high quality natural diet. The same dietary recommendations apply as for controlling struvite bladder stones.
Dietary therapy is useful adjunct and possible preventive measure for pets with bladder infections. Since most infections commonly form in alkaline urine, diets should help maintain an acidic urine as much as possible. Diets with animal-based protein sources are most important in maintaining an acidic pH. While urinary acidifiers can be useful, some doctors discourage their use as the exact dosage that is safe and effective is often not known.
The Urinary Herbal Tonic can be used in conjunction with conventional therapies. The natural treatments are widely used with variable success but have not been thoroughly investigated and proven at this time.
This is a nutritional product and is not intended as a substitute for veterinary products or advice. As with any condition, the most healthful natural diet will improve the pet’s overall health.
