These signs can be symptoms of Urinary Tract Infections in dogs. Uti-Care maintains urinary tract health by using clinically proven natural ingredients to eliminate the build up of bacteria
What is a Urinary infection (UTI)
If your dog is needs to be let out all the time to wee, she may have an infection in the bladder or urinary tract. Often called UTI (urinary tract infection) for short. Dogs with UTI need to pee more frequently, usually in smaller quantities, and they might show signs of distress as well. It is a common condition though bitches tend to be more prone.
The infection is caused by bacteria sticking to the lining of the bladder and urethra (urinary tube) and causing inflammation and soreness as they multiply. If left unchecked it may develop to cause damage to the bladder or urethra lining.
How is it treated?
We strongly advocate that Veterinary diagnosis should be sought. Treatment from the Vet will be by a course of antibiotics.
Unfortunately it can be a recurring condition in many dogs and you may find yourself going back to the Vets a month or two later. Further antibiotics will be needed.
What is the role of Uti-Care
Uti-Care is not an antibiotic and it doesn’t eliminate exiting infections. Its role is to make re-infection much less likely and in many cases prevent it completely. This is very desirable because it removes the need for continued antibiotic use.
The ingredients, though natural, are clinically shown to make it very difficult for bacteria to attach to the bladder and urethra linings. They reduce and prevent bacteria from adhering to the tissue that lines the bladder and urinary tract. Because they can’t adhere they are continuously flushed out.
Uti-Care is used as a long term supplement to maintain a healthy tract.
Directions for use
UTi-Care capsules should be used to maintain a healthy urinary tract following successful treatment of an infection by your Vet. Or, if your dog has a history of repeated urinary infections then ongoing use of UTi-Care will reduce or even prevent the cycle of infection.
The capsules should be given with food. The capsules contents have no strong taste and owners can choose between giving them whole or opening them and sprinkling the powder on food.
Uti-Care is formulated in 400mg capsules with three naturally occurring ingredients all of which have substantial scientific study linking them to improvements in urinary tract health. The quantities of each ingredient reflect the actual amounts used in clinical trials.
Cranberry alone has shown a very high propensity to reduce the adhesion of bacteria to the urinary tract walls. Research has shown that the effect is caused by a class of compounds called Proanthocyanidins.
Type A Proanthocyanidins are naturally occurring and are extracted from the North American cranberry. Type A Proanthocyanidins have been shown to prevent bacteria from attaching to the lining of the urethra and bladder, thereby allowing bacterial to be flushed out by urination - the body’s natural defence mechanism.
Uti-Care contains a concentrated cranberry extract containing 25% proanthocyanidins.
D-Mannose is a sugar which attaches to proteins in the urinary tract walls and stops the adhesion of bacteria. Research has shown it to be even more effective than the common anti-biotics used for treatment.
N Acetyl Glucosamine
N Acetyl Glucosamine is a naturally occurring constituent of the bladder and urethra wall linings. It is used here to ensure that your dog is not short of this essential compound in ensuring good bladder health.
