Bladder infections in dogs are quite common and usually fairly easy to treat
Many of our customers tell us that regular use of ThePetCheckup helped them to catch bladder infections at a very early stage–when the infection was just beginning.
Bacteria in the bladder enters from the outside through the urethra. Treatment with antibiotics is usually pretty effective.
However, if the infection is stubborn or seems to return often, underlying causes need to be looked into.
Some of the most common underlying causes that need to be ruled out are: bladder stones, bladder cancer, Cushing’s disease and diabetes mellitus.
