Spot Your Pet's Urinary Tract Symptoms

Urinary tract related conditions are among the most common reasons for veterinary visits. Symptoms of urinary tract infections include difficulty urinating, blood in pet's urine, a foul or strong urine odor, fever, and lethargy. Since urinary tract infections are very common, the symptoms can be relieved with the use of antibiotics and cranberry supplements, which can help to prevent them from reoccurring.

Treat urinary incontinence with Proin (dogs only)

If your pet leaks urine and cannot wait until being taken outside, this could be a sign of urinary incontinence. Proin is a medication often recommended for this condition and requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Please note: We cannot ship Proin to Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana and Oregon where it is classified as a controlled substance.

Give supplements to maintain a healthy urinary tract

For an easy way to help relieve urinary tract infection symptoms, mix Cranberry Relief into your pet's food. The ingredients in Cranberry Relief contain natural anti-inflammatories and immune system boosters, which helps minimize bacteria from collecting in the lining of the bladder. If your cat is finicky, try our UT Soft Chews for Cats. Most cats love the delicious chicken-liver flavor. These products can help temporarily relieve symptoms, however, if your pet's symptoms persist, you should visit your veterinarian.

Change your pet's diet

Food plays a significant role in your pet's overall health, including the urinary tract. Both dogs and cats should be fed a high protein diet that is low in carbohydrates and contains minimal amounts of grains. Although dogs can eat wet or dry food, cats should only eat wet food. If a dog is fed a vegetarian or kibble-based diet, this can increase the alkaline content of the urine, potentially leading to crystal formations (kidney or bladder stones). If you're unsure which dog food brands to consider, visit our Pet Food Center, where you'll find top rated pet foods from our experts.

Max's Tip

Urine acidifiers like Methigel Urinary Acidifier can also be used to reduce the likelihood of bladder stones from forming.
