      ================== ARTICLE START ==================
      Urinary tract infections are common with most pets, be it cats,
      dogs or any other animal. Surveys conducted have shown that one
      in seven animals have a urinary tract infection during some
      stage in their life. The condition is more common in dogs, and
      in cats that are unhealthy as their defenses towards infections
      gets reduced. But it doesn't mean that you shouldn't worry if
      your pet isn't a dog or an unhealthy cat. Be sure to keep an eye
      out for any change in behavior such as these:

      Detection of Urinary Tract Infections

      The tell-tale signs of urinary tract infections in any pet are:


      1.Difficulty in urination
      2.Bloody urine
      3.Urine with extremely foul odor
      4.Urination in inappropriate places
      5.Frequent Urination

      The presence of any of these signs indicates the possibility of
      a urinary tract infection. These Urinary Tract Infections could
      be fatal for the pet. It is recommended that you call a
      veterinarian doctor immediately. If left untreated the condition
      will only get worse and will cause your pet even more harm.

      Diagnosis

      The veterinarian is most likely to take a sample of the pet's
      urine in order to confirm the presence of an infection, and to
      determine the strain of bacteria, which has caused the
      infection. Since the signs of a urinary tract infection overlap
      with signs of urinary blockage, it is vital to do this
      confirmatory test to be sure what the problem is. Also by
      identifying the bacterial strain or other pathogen, the
      veterinarian can give appropriate medicine, which targets that
      particular strain, and therefore causes fewer side effects to
      your pet.

      If you want to know an even deeper explanation as to what tests
      your vet is conducting then make sure to ask them. Most vets
      would love to explain what they do as most people never care to
      ask.

      Treatment

      Depending on the extent of the infection and type of pathogen,
      the veterinarian will choose an appropriate antimicrobial agent.
      Instructions for administration of the antibiotic or
      antimicrobial agent would be given to you by the veterinarian.
      It is important that you make sure that the pet is getting the
      required dose of the medication at appropriate times, as missing
      a dose could cause the bacteria to become resistant and thus the
      infection would become more severe.

      One of the easiest ways to remember giving your pet the
      medication is to either combine it with another habitual task
      that you already perform or if you don't have any that'll fit
      the schedule make sure to use the alarm on your cellular phone.
      Most people today have a mobile and often carry it around
      wherever they go so it would be much extra work on your part.

      After completion of the course of medication, it is also
      important to take the pet to the veterinarian again to check if
      the medicine has done its job and if the infection is taken care
      of. The veterinarian would advise you accordingly depending upon
      the situation after the course of what to do.
