UTI’s or Dog and Cat Urinary Tract Infections very common

I read more information today about Urinary Tract infections in dogs and cats. Although the statistics vary on just what percentage of dogs and cats will have this illness in their lifetime, it is certain that this is one of the most common imbalances that affect our pets.

Female dogs are quite a bit more likely to develop urinary tract infections than male dogs.

This is because the length of a female dog’s urethra is shorter compared to a male dog’s urethra. So the bacteria can enter a female dog’s bladder easier.

Keeping the animal’s immune system strong is the best defense. There is an overwhelming amount of information out there on our animal’s health and I know ThePetCheckup customer’s are some of the most informed.

I just started giving Chloe and Kate New Zealand Colostrum again. I think it is a great product and for my fussy cats, something that they will actually eat mixed with their food.

Dog Urinary Tract Infection

I came across an interesting statistic today regarding urinary tract infections in dogs.

According to the information I read, 20-50% of dogs who have experienced a urinary tract infection will have a recurrence of the infection at some point during their lifetime. This makes it extremely important to be vigilant for signs that the problem may be resurfacing.

A special diet tailored to the individual needs of the dog, along with an alert caregiver, can prevent the infection from recurring.

Anyone who has ever experienced a urinary tract infection, knows how painful it can be. I would think dogs feel a similar kind of discomfort which makes it really important to prevent the infection, or at least to catch it very early.
