Herbal nutrition to help address and holistically treat bladder infections and cystitis in dogs and cats. 

When your pet experiences kidney problems, nutritional support must be given to the kidneys and connective tissues of the bladder as well as the liver, cardiovascular system and autonomic nervous system.  

A bladder infection, also known as cystitis, is a form of a urinary tract infection which affects and irritates the lining of the bladder, and can cause extreme pain and discomfort for your pet. It also represents one of the top reasons for veterinarian visits. Bladder, or urinary tract infections, are caused by bacteria that enter the urethra, the tube connecting the bladder to the exterior of the body through which urine flows. 

A bladder infection can be related to bladder stones, an underlying illness or undiagnosed disease, overuse of medications, bladder tumors, cancer or abnormalities of the urinary tract. Urinary tract infections affect both dogs and cats, although they tend to occur more commonly 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 and even kidney failure.

The principal sign of a bladder infection is frequent and painful urination. Your pet’s urine may appear cloudy and have a strong, pungent odor. Female dogs and cats who have cystitis may have vaginal discharge and may lick at the vulva. 

Common symptoms of bladder infections include:

Frequent urination

Painful urination

Straining to urinate

Licking of the genital area

Cloudy or blood urine

Urine odor is strong and pungent

Urinating without passing much urine (only drops)

Urinating in odd places

Vaginal discharge


Loss of appetite

Helpful suggestions to maintain urinary health:

Make sure that your dog or cat has toilet breaks every few hours and avoid letting them hold urine too long

Give your pet plenty of fresh, clean filtered water daily to flush out unwanted toxins and avoid dehydration

Feed your pet a high quality, nutritious, premium diet that does not contain corn, wheat, soy or preservatives, colorants or additives

Bathe your pet regularly. For female pets, it is important because their urethra is very short and as a result bacteria infects the bladder very quickly

Make sure your pet gets adequate exercise to stimulate the bladder

Keep more than one litter box in your home for your cat and make sure that they are always clean

Conventional Remedies:

Diagnosis is confirmed by a urinalysis which shows the presence of bacteria, white blood cells, and often red blood cells in the urine. A urine test will be performed to check for a high ph balance, the presence of bacteria, crystals, red and white blood cells. Additional tests such as a urine culture, blood tests, x-rays and ultrasound may be performed if recurring infection occur or to determine the cause of underlying diseases or abnormalities.

Urinary tract infections in pets are usually treated with a course of antibiotics. Frequent treatment of antibiotics can weaken the immune system, causing recurring infections. In more severe cases or with persistent urinary tract infections, surgery or catheterization may be recommended by your vet.
