Prostate Support in Dogs and Cats

Herbal remedies to support prostate health in dogs and cats and to prevent enlarged prostate glands and prostatitis infections.

The endocrine system interacts with many organs and bodily systems, and the adrenal and thyroid glands require nutritional support to also lend support to all glands and tissues. The adrenals can become stressed and fatigued, negatively affecting the liver, duodenum, kidneys and reproductive system.

Our pet’s bodies are comprised of a complicated and an interdependent set of systems in which one organ or system affects another. Attention given to whole body support is essential when treating dysfunction or disease in the kidneys, liver, and bladder, digestive, reproductive or urinary tract. Whole food nutrients and plant botanicals can restore imbalance and rehabilitation to the digestive, renal, hepatic, metabolic, endocrine, and urinary systems.

Male dogs and cats have a prostate gland. The prostate gland consists of two lobes which lie just behind the bladder, surrounding the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis and out of the body) and below the rectum.

Its function is to produce prostatic fluids that provide nourishment for sperm cells to the penis during breeding. The prostate begins to develop before your pet reaches puberty. The male hormone testosterone affects development of the prostate and by the age of two years old, the prostate gland reaches its maximum size.

An enlarged prostate develops as a result of the following:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

Cystic hyperplasia

Prostatisis (infection of the prostate gland)

Para prostatic cysts (large fluid-filled sacs connected to the prostate by a thin stalk)

Squamous metaplasia (enlargement of the prostate gland caused by excessive exposure to estrogen)

Prostatic abscess (a pocket of infected fluid develops within the prostate and is a severe form of prostatitis).

Prostatic neoplasia (tumors of the prostate gland)

When a male pet is neutered, most of the prostate gland is removed and as a result prostate problems seldom occur. Enlarged prostates often affect older intact male animals. When an intact dog or cat grows older, their hormone levels – testosterone and estrogen change and cause the prostate gland to swell. A swollen prostate gland causes extreme discomfort and pain, and makes urinating and defecating for your pet very difficult.

Other suggestions to maintain prostate health and ease symptoms related to an enlarged prostate:

Neuter your pet in the first year of his life to prevent and control prostate problems

Take your pet out frequently for bathroom breaks to relieve discomfort and prevent urinary tract infections. Remember that with an enlarged prostate your pet may not be able to urinate all at once

Encourage your pet to drink more water to encourage urination

Do not over exercise pets with prostate problems as this will worsen symptoms and cause pain to the prostate

If your pet has difficulty defecating, use an herbal supplement that helps soften stool

Feed your dog or cat a premium diet free of corn, wheat, soy and contains the essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals

Incorporate immune-building supplements into your pet’s diet to strengthen the immune system

Conventional Remedies:

A veterinarian will conduct a diagnosis of an enlarged prostate based on the symptoms presented a thorough physical examination including a rectal exam and a review of your pet’s medical history. Additional tests may include a urinalysis, urine culture, blood tests, x-rays, ultrasound and biopsy.

The treatment recommended for an enlarged prostate in animals is neutering them at an early age, usually before puberty to prevent the normal growth of the prostate. If your pet is neutered later in life, after the testosterone is removed, prostate gland will shrink.

Depending on the cause and diagnosis, treatment of an enlarged prostate may involve intravenous fluids, intravenous antibiotics, urinary catheterization, pain medications and enemas. More serious cases may also require surgery.
