Bladder & Urinary Tract Problems

Herbal remedies to reduce bladder and urinary tract problems and infections and to prevent urine leaking in cats and dogs.

In renal challenges, the kidneys not only need to be supported but consideration should also be given to support of the liver, cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system., facilitate the support and natural rehabilitation of the kidneys and other important tissues. 

So your beloved pet has had yet another “accident” indoors – perhaps it’s time to explore possible underlying problems that could be causing loss of cat or dog bladder control. Some bladder control problems are caused by serious conditions that need treatment, while others may be due to the age and temperament of your pet.

Small puppies and kittens do not have mature bladders and so accidents are likely to occur during potty training. Even a trained puppy might have the occasional accident as their bladders are only mature from about 6 months. If however, your perfectly house-trained pet starts urinating in the house, then it is advisable to seek veterinary attention.

Urinary tract infections in pets occurs frequently causing urination to be extremely painful and uncomfortable. These infections are caused by bacteria that enter the urethra (the tube connecting the bladder to the exterior of the body through which urine flows), bladder or any part of the urinary tract.

Bladder stones, some underlying diseases, overuse of medications, bladder tumors or cancer or abnormalities of the urinary tract can also increase the risk of urinary tract infections. Urinary tract infections affect both dogs and cats, although they tend to be more common in cats.

Female cats and dogs experience more episodes of urinary tract infections because the urethra is shorter and broader than in males. If left untreated urinary tract infections can lead to more serious health complications such as kidney infections.

Symptoms and signs of urinary tract infections include:

Straining to urinate

Urinating with pain

Licking of the genitals

Cloudy or blood urine

Urinating without passing much urine – only drops

Urinating in odd places

Fever

Loss of appetite

Drinking too much (possibly caused by another condition such as diabetes)

Congenital defects

Obesity

Old age

Never punish your pet for accidents. There is always an underlying cause, even if that cause is poor house training.

If your pet’s bladder control issues are related to house training, remember to use plenty of positive reinforcement and rewards for the correct behavior, rather than punishment for the wrong behavior.

When loss of bladder control occurs during stress, excitement or as a submissive behavior, the best thing you can do is not make a fuss over the incident, but rather ignore it. Try removing the stressor and take steps to calm your pet down.

Reduced bladder control is a common symptom in aging pets, or those suffering from Alzheimer’s. Try take your pet outside for “potty breaks” more frequently and reward them when they do urinate outside. For cats, you could try placing additional litter-trays around the house so that they are always readily available.

Many older pets are embarrassed and confused about “accidents” when they do occur, especially if they have been perfectly house trained for years. While cleaning up the mess afterwards is no fun, try not to react in a way that will make your pet feel more humiliated.

When pets are feeling unwell or have symptoms of a bladder infection, they may urinate in an unusual place to get your attention. Never ignore the message.
