Dog Urinary Tract Infection or Cat UTI
Nature's only urge is toward wellness.
Dog urinary tract infection (and cat UTI) "Seldom if ever found in healthy pets whose natural defenses are functioning as Nature intends."
Urinary tract infections, or UTIs, are painful and inconvenient for your pet, and frustrating for you. A cat or dog urinary tract infection results in your pet having accidents in the house or constantly pestering you to be allowed out. Urinary tract infections are not just an uncomfortable inconvenience. Infections can spread through the urinary tract and lead to further infections in the kidney or even result in sepsis of the blood. Ongoing UTIs can lead to bladder and kidney stones, which can result in lethal blockages.
What is a Urinary Tract Infection?
A urinary tract infection is a bacterial infection that occurs anywhere along your pet’s urinary tract. The infection may occur in the urethra, bladder, or kidneys. Often, the infection starts in the lower urinary tract when bacteria in the intestine gets into the urethra. Both dogs and cats can get these infections, and they occur in both male and female animals.
Some breeds are more prone to urinary tract infections and bladder stones than others, and the condition is more common in older animals or animals with adrenal disorders or diabetes. Urinary tract infections are more likely to develop in animals that are forced to hold their urine too long or are unable to thoroughly empty the bladder, such as animals with reduced bladder tone or paralysis. Dogs and cats that don't drink enough water or have infrequent chances to urinate are more likely to develop urinary tract infections.
Cat and Dog Urinary Tract Infections and Bladder Stones
Urinary tract infections and bladder stones go hand in hand. Chronic urinary tract infections often lead to bladder stones or crystals. A urinary tract infection may also be an indication of a bladder stone, as bladder stones or crystals tend to lead to urinary tract infections. Bladder stones are a serious condition which must be treated immediately since they can block the urethra and prevent urination, which is life-threatening.
Straining or discomfort during urination is one of the first signs of a urinary tract infection. You may notice that your dog postures for longer than usual or your cat is in the litter box for a long time. Your pet may posture several times without urinating very much or not at all. Your pet may also cry or vocalize while straining to urinate.
Frequent, unproductive urination is another classic sign of a cat or dog urinary tract infection. Your dog or cat may posture again and again, producing only a very small amount of urine. Your pet may be unwilling to come in even after having urinated several times. Alternately, some pets with a urinary tract infection may produce an abnormally large amount of urine at one time and be unable to urinate at other times.
Inappropriate urination inside the house or cats refusing to use a clean litter box are other indications of a cat or dog urinary tract infection. Your pet may not be able to control when or how much she urinates, leading to random accidents inside the house even after your dog has just gone out or your cat has just visited the litter box.
Cloudy, strong-smelling urine is another clear indication of a UTI. A healthy cat or dog’s urine may be concentrated dark yellow to almost clear depending on how much water your pet has been drinking. Regardless of the color, urine will be clear in a healthy pet. Another indication of a cat or dog urinary tract infection is the urine will have a cloudy, translucent appearance no matter the color. It will likely have a strong and unpleasant odor. There may also be discharge around the urethra.
Increased thirst may also indicate a cat or dog urinary tract infection, especially when paired with one of the previous symptoms. If your pet has increased thirst without any of the other symptoms of urinary tract infection, it is more likely that a different disease is the culprit.
Conventional Treatment for Cat and Dog Urinary Tract Infections
Your veterinarian can test your pet's urine for signs of infection and to identify the type of infection present. Your veterinarian will then prescribe the correct type of antibiotic to attack the bacteria in your pet's urine. This can be a difficult process, as sometimes there are more bacteria present than the veterinarian identifies at first, causing antibiotics to be ineffective or only partially effective.
In these cases, another antibiotic will be prescribed to attack whatever bacteria was left over after the first treatment. This means that your dog receives multiple doses of different antibiotics, which may make bacteria in the urine more resistant to antibiotics in the future. Dogs and cats that experience chronic urinary tract infections and are constantly treated by antibiotics become harder and harder to treat with every new infection.

Uva Ursi (Arctostaphylos uva ursi) has been used for centuries by Native Americans to treat urinary tract infections. The leaves of this plant contain arbutin, which converts to hydroquinone in the urinary tract. This powerful antiseptic then fights off the cat or dog urinary tract infection. Uva Ursi also contains astringent tannins which shrink mucous membranes to reduce inflammation, making urination easier. Its diuretic properties are useful for flushing bacteria out of the kidneys.
Goldenrod (Solidaginis virguarea) has been used for centuries to cure human and dog urinary tract infections throughout Europe, Asia, and North America. Medical herbalists use it it for its multiple beneficial effects including anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, analgesic, and diuretic. Each of these traits is beneficial when fighting a urinary tract infection. Goldenrod is also effective at preventing the formation of stones in the bladder or kidneys because it removes urinary sediment.
Marshmallow Root (Althea Officinalis) produces a glue-like substance called mucilage which can be used to coat the body's mucous membranes. Marshmallow root soothes irritation in the mucous membranes of the urinary tract and reduces inflammation. This herb encourages phagocytosis, the process by which cells absorb and destroy unwanted microorganisms in the blood, preventing infections from developing.
