Urinary Tract Disease in Pets

Treatment for Urinary Tract Disease at Clinton Hill Animal Clinic

A urinary tract disease is just as painful and serious in pets as in humans. If you suspect that your pet is suffering from this condition, it's necessary to discover just what's going on so that your animal can receive immediate treatment. That's why it's such a relief to know that Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in Brooklyn is ready, willing, and can help with diseases and disorders of the urinary tract.


Urinary Tract Diseases and Disorders in Pets

Proper functioning of the urinary tract is vital to any pet's health and wellness. This system includes the tubes that carry urine from the kidneys into and out of the bladder, enabling the body to rid itself of excess fluids, toxins, and sodium. Unfortunately, any system is vulnerable to failure, and the urinary system is no exception. Common problems that can afflict the urinary tract include:

  • Urinary tract infections - A fungal or bacterial infection of the urinary tract can cause severe discomfort, which may be why your pet is licking his or her genitals or showing signs of pain when urinating. Bloody or cloudy urine may also point toward a urinary tract infection. Urinary infections can invade the kidneys if they aren't treated promptly.
  • Stones - Kidney stones or bladder stones can obstruct the urinary tract. They can be extremely painful and prevent your pet from passing urine normally. For this reason, suspected kidney or bladder stones need to be treated as a veterinary emergency. 

Our Veterinary Hospital Can Help Your Furry Pet

Your beloved friend is in good hands at our pet hospital in Brooklyn. We can perform diagnostic imaging to look for urinary obstructions, run blood and urine tests to check for infections, and pinpoint the exact cause of your pet's discomfort. Your furry animal may need prescription medicine to kill bacteria or fungi. Emergency surgery may be necessary to remove large stones blocking the urinary tract. We can then recommend dietary changes to help prevent future stone formation or make smaller stones dissolve before they become a danger.

Schedule an Appointment with Your Brooklyn Veterinarian

A urinary tract disease can turn into a severe situation, but you don't have to worry when you have Clinton Hill Animal Clinic on your side. Either Brooklyn veterinarian on our distinguished team will be more than happy to diagnose your pet's symptoms and provide the necessary care to help him or her recover from his or her problem. Call our veterinary office at 718-623-3999 today to make an appointment.
