I came across an interesting statistic today regarding urinary tract infections in dogs.
According to the information I read, 20-50% of dogs who have experienced a urinary tract infection will have a recurrence of the infection at some point during their lifetime. This makes it extremely important to be vigilant for signs that the problem may be resurfacing.
A special diet tailored to the individual needs of the dog, along with an alert caregiver, can prevent the infection from recurring.
Anyone who has ever experienced a urinary tract infection, knows how painful it can be. I would think dogs feel a similar kind of discomfort which makes it really important to prevent the infection, or at least to catch it very early.
