Urinary Tract Problems
Problems affecting the urinary tract are very common in dogs, Arteaga says.These problems include congenital abnormalities, infections, inflammatory problems, the presence of stones or urinary crystals, abnormalities in bladder control and tumors. Look for signs that show your dog may be suffering from a urinary tract disease. These signs include an increased frequency of urination, blood in the urine, straining to urinate or incontinence. Urinary tract infections are common in dogs, but they are frequently associated with underlying diseases.
The main forms of treatment for urinary tract problems are surgical or medical treatment, Arteaga said, adding that this depends on the type of disease.
