Canine urinary tract infection is a condition that is not always noticed in the early stages because clinical symptoms are not always recognizable. Female dogs are usually more vulnerable to urinary tract infection, although it can occur in male dogs, too. Urinary tract infection in dogs is commonly caused by stress, intestinal or environmental bacteria (like Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus, Proteus, and Enterococcus) that enter and ascend the urethra, ultimately proliferating in the urinary bladder. Some of the signs of urinary tract infections in dogs include lethargy, frequent urination, increased thirst, straining or difficulty urinating, blood in urine, incontinence and unexplained accidents in the house. Unless you take your dog to your veterinarian to get him tested, your dog’s UTI might be in the advanced stage.
