Treatment for dogs with bladder infection

  • When bacteria change - antibiotic failure and the rise of natural pet UTI treatments

    pet UTI treatments

    Now more than ever, the use of clinically tested, natural remedies, are needed to help stem an alarming rise in antibiotic resistance. The WHO (World Health Organization) concluded with their first report in 2014, from data in 114 countries, that antibiotic failure- is happening right now, all over the world. The good news is that even for the most common infections, such as urinary tract infections, there are natural pet UTI treatments available that can sharply reduce the need for antibiotics, thereby slowing down bacterial resistance.

    Why are antibiotics failing ?

    Over the last 30 years, no major new types of antibiotics have been developed (1). In the US alone, > 2 million infections and 23,000 deaths are due to antibiotic resistance each year (2). The main driver of antibiotic resistance is simply put: overuse of antibiotics driven by commercial animal farming and overprescription of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine. Antibiotics are commonly used as a growth promoter and to prevent disease in inhumane, unsanitary and overcrowded living conditions found on commercial Confined AnimalFarming Operations (CAFO's) where chicken and cattle are raised.

    Which infections are currently most at risk for becoming untreatable ?

    The WHO has identified Urinary tract infections as one of the top diseases currently becoming harder to treat with antibiotics. But there are in fact clinically proven natural pet UTI treatments that can help preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics.

    Escherchia coli mediated Urinary Tract infections (UTIs)- arisk for your whole family

    Escherchia coli mediated Urinary Tract infections (UTIs) tops the WHO list of most common antibiotic resistant diseases, ranging from 20-90% from North America to Asia. Acute and recurrent Escherchia coli mediated UTIs are also one of the most common pet diseases. Within-household sharing and transmission of Escherchia coli, including in households where a member has an acute UTI, is the norm, and can involve any combination of humans and pets (3). Preventing infection with these common bacterial strains is therefore important for your pets health but also that of your whole family.

    How can you help ensure the safety of your family ?

    You can reduce antibiotic use to help stem resistance and preserve antibiotic effectiveness at home and by working with your vet. How ? Switch to a natural pet UTI treatment that is clinically proven to work, such asCranimals Original UTi Supplement.

    Published in American Journal Veterinary Research (4), and featured in Veterinary Practise News (6), Integrated Veterinary Care Magazine and Mercola Healthy Pets (5), Cranimals Original is the only independently tested and clinically proven (4)pet UTI treatment made with cranberry extract that effectively prevents adhesion of Escherchia coli to surfaces of the urinary tract in pets. Alongside elimination of antibiotics for reinfections/recurrences, infection related complications (struvite stone formation, incontinence and high urinary pH) are also controlled.

    Dr. Gary J. Duhr, DVM , Ramapo Valley Animal Hospital, NJ, USA, " Most commonly, I recommend Cranimals for patients with high pH levels, post urinary tract infections, and to decrease incidents of urinary crystals. I am also a fan of the antioxidant properties and the dental benefits. Overall, this product has made many of my clients very happy and I am pleased with the results!"

  • Finally my dog Brooke's UTI was treated effectively and her past bladder infections have not returned - Interview with Jennifer Norato

    Cranimals: Jennifer welcome. You have a very special story to share and some health tips for pet owners based on your experience. Tell us what you do?Jennifer: I work here at Ramapo valley animal hospital in Oakland, NJ and I have been working here for over 10 years now. I first started during my college years as a part time job and quickly grew into a passion.
    We are a small practice that has steadily been growing through the years. We currently are in a new building and have 2 doctors that specialize in small animals, mostly dogs and cats. We are located in northern New Jersey, which is mostly suburban life but our pets do encounter a lot of wildlife.Cranimals: Tell us about your own pets and their health challenges?Jennifer: I have two dogs, a 6 year old hound mix and a 14 year old Pomeranian and 6 cats! A hazard of my occupation is that I raise abandoned kittens and many of them don’t leave my house! It has never been a challenge keeping 6 cats happy though! They all love each other and play all night long.My hound mix, Brooke, hasn’t been the healthiest though. I adopted her as an adult and fought her chronic ear and dog bladder infections from day one.My old man, Mako, has had the happiest life, but not the healthiest either. One of his legs was amputated almost 8 years ago and has suffered from multiple related health issues.Cranimals: What made you look into Cranimals and where did you find us?

    Jennifer: I first discovered Cranimals in a pet magazine, advertising the benefits of the original formula. It couldn’t have come at a better time!

    My Brooke was suffering from another dog bladder infections caused by her constant struvite crystals. Working at an animal hospital, I had every diagnostic and treatment at my disposal, but still she got infections. She had countless urine tests, blood work, cultures, x-rays, prescription foods, meds, and even ultrasounds but nothing could keep her from making struvite crystals in her bladder.

    And then I saw Cranimals! I, of course, had tried cranberry supplements before to help Brooke’s bladder, but this product immediately seemed different than the ones that failed in the past. I immediately placed an order and patiently waited for my shipment!

    Cranimals: What seemed different about Cranimals from all the other products and treatments you tried?

    Jennifer: I loved the science that is behind the claims of excellence. The Cranimals products didn’t just say it would benefit my dog’s bladder health, it explained how it would. As a pet owner, I loved that the Cranimals company detailed why this supplement was scientifically proven to work so I understood why it would work. Other products I tried didn’t seem to have any scientific backing to their claims.

    Cranimals: You mention it was painful to watch Brooke suffer – tell us about that?

    Jennifer: Dog Bladder infections most commonly cause symptoms of urinating frequently and in small amounts. It feels like they can’t empty their bladder so they always have the feeling that they need to urinate. But in Brooke’s case, she had struvite crystals, which physically made it painful to urinate. So much so that she would hold her urine as long as she could! She just didn’t want to urinate because she knew it was going to hurt. And that starts the vicious cycle of bacteria collecting in her bladder, creating an infection.

    Cranimals: Did she eat it with no fuss?

    Jennifer: Brooke, being a hound dog, loved the taste of the Cranimals Original. I initially mixed the Cranimals with some plain yoghurt, which she was already eating for the probiotic benefits. But as I used it more, I realized she loved the flavor no matter how I gave it to her!

    Cranimals: And Ramapo valley animal hospital now stock Cranimals?

    Jennifer: Yes, getting my colleges on board with this new product was a breeze! They saw me suffering constantly with Brooke’s bladder problems and were amazed with how quickly she felt better. After a month of being free of bladder problems, it was decided to recommend this product to all our patients with similar problems.

    Cranimals: What health tip do you have for other animal lovers?

    Jennifer: My best tip of advice is to use preventative medicine! It is always better for your pet and more affordable for you, to prevent a health problem than it is to treat one.

    I am able to prevent dog bladder infections for Brooke by giving her two teaspoons a day of Cranimals Original and have saved me thousands of dollars in vet bills, let alone the pain and discomfort that would come along with her infections.

    Cranimals: Thank you Jennifer and thank you Ramapo Valley Animal Hospital.
