Bladder infections in dogs are similar to those in humans and can cause varying degrees of discomfort and pain

An infected bladder can be caused by a bacterial infection, crystals which cause urinary stones to form, or a blockage in the bladder or urethra.

All these conditions make urinating very difficult.

Bladder infections can occur in any sex of dog at any stage of life but female spayed dogs are inclined to develop more bladder infections and recurring infections often occur in Poodles, Labradors and older German shepherd dogs.

A dog's bladder infection should not be left untreated as it can lead to more serious health issues such as prostate problems and kidney failure, so take your dog to the vet at the first signs of this condition.

    Diagnosing a Dog's Bladder Infection

    Help for Bladder Infections in Dogs

    Bladder infections in dogs are usually treated with antibiotics or anti-inflammatories, and should normally disappear quite quickly once treated. Whilst antibiotics treat the symptoms, these medicines do not always treat the cause of the problem.

    Antibiotics kill harmful bacteria but also beneficial bacteria.

    Natural remedies

    Herbal and homeopathic remedies have proven to be highly effective in the treatment of bladder infections and other urinary related problems. These remedies contain natural ingredients so they are safe and gentle to use for your dog without the risk of damaging side effects.

    Herbs used in some of these treatments include Arctostaphylos uva ursi and Berberis vulgaris, both have powerful antibacterial and antiseptic attributes which are ideal for the treatment of urinary tract infections.

    These herbs also help to reduce inflammation and strengthen the immune system, an important part of the dog’s body for fighting off diseases.


    There are some preventative measures that can be taken to minimize the risks of dog bladder infections and these include:

    • A plentiful supply of fresh, clean water at all times. If your dog does not drink a lot of water, make sure he gets additional fluids in his food.
    • Make sure your dog is let out every few hours to urinate
    • Encourage your dog to drink water during a bladder infection to flush toxins out of his body
    • Boost your dog's immune system
    • Feed your dog natural, chemical free food. Some commercial foods can increase the risk of infection and can also weaken the immune system.
    • Take your dog for a walk at least twice a day to increase his chances of urinating.
