Common Questions about Dog Urinary Tract Infections

Do Dogs Get Urinary Tract Infections?

Do dogs get urinary tract infections? Yes, quite a bit, actually. Around 15% of all dogs will get a urinary tract infection in their life; furthermore, 90% of dogs who develop bladder stones will had have a UTI. While they can occur at any age, UTIs are also more likely to affect older, spayed dogs who experience incontinence.

Dog Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms

As was said, dogs contract urinary tract infections with a high degree of frequency, especially females. Furthermore, many infected dogs do not show any outward signs of being infected; therefore, it is important to get your pet tested regularly by a veterinarian. Some of the more obvious signs include whining or crying during urination, little to no urination, and urinating in weird spots.

Causes of Urinary Tract Infection in Dogs

UTIs are usually caused by environmental or intestinal bacteria that enter and ascend the urethra, eventually reaching the urinary bladder where it proliferates. The most common types of bacteria are as follows: Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus, Proteus, Enterococcus, Klebsiella, Streptococcus, Enterobacter, and Chlamydia.
