Facts About Your Dog’s Frequent Urination
By Janet Markowitz
Frequent urination and excessive thirst in dogs are often signs of illness. If you notice either symptom, bring your dog to the vet for examination. It’s important to find out the cause right away since it can be serious. The most common causes for a dog’s increase in urination are infection, bladder stones, and less commonly, birth defects or bladder tumors.
If your vet finds that the cause of the problem is a bladder stone, or a tumor or birth defect, he will most likely recommend surgery. If the cause is an infection, he will likely prescribe antibiotics.
Antibiotics are important in treatment for a later-stage infection. But you should be aware of the side-effects of the high doses that are required for effective treatment, especially for a urinary tract infection. The symptoms your dog experiences can actually be aggravated by antibiotics. Frequent urination, for example, calls for holistic treatment, even if you are using conventional medicine.
Any veterinarian will tell you that healthy diet, exercise and plenty of clean, fresh water are critical in treating - and preventing - your dog’s frequent urination. Not unlike humans, those factors are all important to your dog’s urinary health and total well-being. To strengthen your dog’s immune system and keep infection from returning, you will need to make changes in your dog’s lifestyle and administer a natural remedy.
Countless studies have shown that natural remedies are very effective in treating and preventing a dog’s urinary tract infection, particularly when combined with dietary and lifestyle changes. Perhaps most important, natural remedies are safe, can be taken for long periods without side-effects and are more cost effective than drugs. Natural remedies work best when given consistently, rather than at the first sign of an infection.
Explore treatment options for your dog’s urinary tract infections. But bear in mind that prevention really is the best medicine. Holistic treatment is an excellent option to return your dog’s health, and prevent future problems. Don’t wait for your dog to start frequent urination. Prevent the problem altogether and aim toward permanent recovery.
