================== 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
3.Urine with extremely foul odor
4.Urination in inappropriate places
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.
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
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
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.
