ABOUT Pet Bladder Infection

Cystitis (bladder infection) can happen in animals as well as humans. It is a fairly common complaint in veterinary practices. Basically, cystitis is caused by bacteria or viruses, and the symptoms are very disturbing to the animal.

Bladder infection happens more often in female cats or dogs because the urethra is smaller than in males, but males can get it as well. Young animals are more susceptible because they may become dehydrated more easily.

You can detect the problem pretty easily. Your dog or cat may begin behaving in an unusual way. Usually they are hyperactive, running around or even running away in discomfort. They may make noises whenever they try to pee, and they may jump up and down. Both types of pets may try to lick their urinary opening. Cats may leap out of their catbox. Both dogs and cats may urinate involuntarily around the house.

If the infection progresses deeper, there may be fever. Kidney infection can be indicated if there is tenderness to touch and probing on the back alongside the spine and below the ribs.

Of course, encouraging drinking helps to flush out the offending microbe, but it is common for your pet not to have an appetite nor adequate thirst.

eRemedies that are properly chosen can produce rapid relief within a day or so or even within hours. To produce such relief, go to eremedyonline.com/module/20/pet-bladder-infection/.

An eRemedy may well relieve fever and kidney infection, but in this circumstance it is also good to go to a veterinarian if one is accessible. There may be a need for antibiotics if the eRemedy is not working.
