What Can Cause Blood in Your Cat or Dog's Urine?

Seeing blood in your pet’s urine is scary and warrants immediate action.  If you see blood in your cat’s or dog’s urine (also known as hematuria) call your veterinarian immediately to determine the cause. It can occur at any age or breed and the most common causes are Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), Stones, Urethral plug in cats, interstitial cystitis and cancer.  Many bladder issues are a result of inflammation and while conventional medications can help get rid of the infection, adding natural treatments can help support your pet’s overall urinary health and reduce inflammation  Since many urinary tract infections commonly repeat, using a holistic approach (diet changes along with supplements) is essential to use along with the veterinary protocol recommended by your veterinarian.    The most beneficial supplements for pets with blood in their urine are:
  • Power Probiotic for Pets-  A powerful multi-strain formula that repopulates your pet's digestive tract with healthy "friendly" bacteria which boost the immune system.

  • NotaSANs drops or capsules- Natural anti-infection formula that is very effective at helping to prevent infections from recurring and reduce inflammation in the urinary tract 
  • Renelix (If pet has stones or crystals)-Flushes out toxins accumulated in the kidneys and bladder.   Excellent product for cats and dogs with bladder cancer, chronic renal failure, urinary crystals and urinary incontinence.
