When you got your Husky pup, you probably never thought you would have to deal with dog bladder control problems. Veterinarians acknowledge that this is becoming more of a recurring problem with dogs in general. However, Husky dogs are more prone to certain conditions that lead to bladder control problems in dogs.
Dog bladder control problems are also referred to as bladder incontinence. They can be caused by a variety of factors. In order to make sure that your Husky stays healthy and safe, you need to have her diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. You may opt for giving your dog a homeopathic remedy to aid in the healing process.
Here are 5 conditions that may be the cause of your Husky’s bladder control issue.
1. Bladder control for a dog can be very difficult if your dog was born with a birth defect. Female Husky puppies are particularly susceptible to being born with urinary tract defects. If your dog has a birth defect, her ureter may connect her bladder to her vagina instead of her urethra, causing her to constantly dribble urine.
If you suspect that a birth defect may be the cause of your Husky’s incontinence, take her to the vet. Surgery may be necessary to correct the problem.
2. Dog bladder control problems are often caused by a loosened sphincter in old age. Older dogs cannot hold their urine in because of a weakened urethral sphincter. There are synthetic medications that can be given to your dog in order to treat this problem but they are not without their side effects. Consider using a natural homeopathic compound to help strengthen her urinary tract system.
3. Bladder control for a dog can become difficult if your dog is suffering from a bacterial infection. Bacteria clings to the lining of your dog’s bladder and causes inflammation and irritation that makes it difficult for your dog to hold her urine in. She may have the constant urge to urinate and urinate frequently. Homeopathic remedies help control the pH level in your Husky dog’s bladder. This discourages the growth of bacteria in her urinary tract.
4. Dog bladder control problems can also be caused by a blockage due to a crystal or stone. When your dog has a stone, her urine flow will be blocked. This will cause her bladder to get very full and eventually she won’t be able to hold her urine. This can be a fatal condition. You must have a vet rule out this as a problem. Once you are past this emergency, put her on a homeopathic program to prevent bladder stones.
5. Bladder control for a dog can become difficult if your Husky is suffering from a serious disease such as brain or spinal cord disease. These diseases can cause your dog to dribble urine constantly. Generally the incontinence will be accompanied by other signs of nervous system disease such as muscle weakness or paralysis.
Do yourself and your dog a favor and learn about the causes of dog bladder control problems. They can be easily fixed in most cases if you just take your dog into the vet to get diagnosed properly. Include a safe and natural homeopathic remedy to help your Husky heal and achieve permanent recovery.
