5 Steps To Take When Your Dog Is Urinating Frequently

Boy, did I learn a valuable lesson.  Once I had to rush my dog to the pet hospital and he practically died.  He had a urinary tract infection and I didn’t notice the symptoms until the last minute.  Thankfully, my veterinarian was able to save him but it was definitely a wake-up call.  Now I focus on preventive treatment and am aware of the signs of infection so it doesn’t spiral out of control again.  Here are 5 steps you should take when you notice your dog urinating frequently.

  1. First, have a look at all of the symptoms.  Is your dog straining to urinate?  Is your dog urinating excessively or are there only drops coming out at a time?  A urinary blockage could cause your dog to stop urinating completely so it’s important get him treated if that’s the case because it could mean life or death.  If the only symptom you notice is frequent urination, treatment at home with plenty of fresh, filtered water, unprocessed food, and homeopathy will probably be enough to fight off the infection.

  2. If you notice your dog urinating frequently, take him to the vet.  Your vet will do tests and examinations to figure out the underlying cause of the problem.  In severe cases, medication or a surgical procedure may be necessary to correct the problem.

  3. If you see your dog urinating excessively, a urinary tract infection is most likely the cause.  Most mainstream veterinarians prescribe antibiotics in this situation.  However, antibiotics are known to actually aggravate the symptoms of dog UTI and cause other harmful side effects.  In many cases, dietary control and homeopathic treatment are enough to get rid of a UTI.

  4. Take aggressive action when you notice your dog urinating frequently.  Give your dog plenty of filtered water to drink.  Bathe him frequently so bacteria don’t have a chance to flourish in his genital area.  Give him only raw, unprocessed, or homemade food.  Commercial foods are laden with artificial ingredients like preservatives and colorings and they can alter the pH of your dog’s urine so they should be avoided.

  5. Administering a homeopathic remedy is hands down the biggest step you can take to help your dog achieve permanent recovery when you notice your dog urinating excessively.  Homeopathic remedies restore balance at a cellular level and help maintain a healthy bladder, a healthy flow of urine, and a strong immune system that is capable of fighting off infections.  Homeopathic treatments are better than any medication because they are completely free of side effects, they are affordable, and they can both treat and prevent UTI.

So there you have it.  The next time you see your dog urinating frequently, follow these 5 simple steps.  By doing so you can help your dog achieve a fast recovery and avoid complications.  Remember that natural, preventive treatment is the most effective but you have to use it on a regular basis.  Rather than just treating the problem when symptoms arise, prevent it from becoming an issue altogether with homeopathic treatment and lifestyle change.
