Cat Urinary Tract
Infection Home Remedies
tract infection in cats and dogs is a serious problem, often leading
to serious repercussions if not treated in time. There is, however, a
different approach to the entire matter of pet-UTI, as more and more veterinarians
are adopting a holistic approach and using herbal and homeopathic
bladder infection treatment for canines and cats to resist infection
and correct imbalances in the body that allow bacteria to thrive.
When it comes to home
remedies, you naturally want to know more about them in order to lend
a helping hand to your cat to avoid the trauma of having to go through
You can help your
pet in many ways by taking recourse to the following simple methods.
- Pain Relief:
Among remedies in homeopathic bladder treatment for canines and cats,
cantharis is used for pain relief. It is very useful for pets who are
straining to urinate. Dosages of two to three pellets twice or thrice
a day, which will be easily absorbed by the pet's mucous membranes,
will relieve pain.
- Control Infection:
Cranberry juice, that is, pure cranberry juice and not formulations
that contain synthetic elements, controls infection by stopping bacteria
from adhering to the surface of the bladder and also acidifies the urine.
- Increase Body
Strength: Vitamin C is a natural anti inflammatory and strengthens
the lining of the bladder. Depending upon the weight of your pet, you
can administer a dose of 250mg to 500mg twice a day. However, vitamin
C is known to cause diarrhea and it is important to arrive at the correct
dosage by trial and error so that you know how much your pet's bowels
- Stick to Chemical
Free Diet: Many commercial pet foods contain harmful chemical additives,
preservatives, and artificial colors that weaken the pet's immune system.
Instead, home cooked food is the best to reduce the risk of body imbalances
and minimize the chance of infection.
To ensure that your cat's bladder is emptied regularly in order to flush
out bacteria, it is imperative that your pet has sufficient quantity
of fluids. However, you cannot force your pet to drink. The better way
is to resort to moist foods and dipping dry foods in some water or chicken
- Clean Water:
Chemicals in some drinking waters make animals avoid drinking, which
in turn, results in thickening of urine. Thickened urine hinders regular
emptying of the bladder. This makes them more prone to developing UTI.
Filtered water or spring water will go a long way in encouraging your
pet to urinate and reduce the risk of urinary
tract infection in cats and dogs.
In addition, simple
methods like providing your cat adequate opportunities to urinate will
ensure that his bladder gets emptied at regular intervals; it will encourage
your pet to urinate and that is an integral part of its health. Moreover,
females that have been spayed early tend to develop loose tissue that
lets urine pool around the urethra. The female urethra is small which
makes it easier for bacteria to travel up to the bladder quickly. Wiping
your cat's bottom frequently will help in tackling this situation effectively.

UTI Free quickly brought relief to our cat who was visiting the sandbox
rather too often. She has had previous bladder infections so we could
recognize the symptoms early. Just a few doses had her back to normal
again with no need for a visit to the vet and the invariable antibiotics."
