Why has a dog bladder infection or a UTI (urinary tract infection) become fairly common? Once it happens, why is it likely there will be another and yet another?
And why do the repeated episodes progress to crystals and ultimately those terribly painful and life threatening stones?
No it doesn't happen to all dogs but it shouldn't happen to any dog. Especially not yours. Period. There is one simple common factor that you can control for the health of your dog.
And it doesn't come in a pill.
Once you understand the most common reason dogs get this, you can change your dog's health, happiness and vitality easily and that's what Sandra and I are going to cover in today's Dog Talk Tuesday.
Amazingly simple wasn't it?
You know, the more I've simplified life for Lulu, the better. Real food is simple. It's full of moisture and nutrients. It allows real health so there is no need for drugs or poisons.
I just wish I would have begun 40 years ago but then hindsight is always 20/20 isn't it?
Like all infections, they are routinely treated with antibiotics and we all
know about those side effect right? Messes up the whole body. If
you're not sure, see Antibiotic Side Effects or better yet, Antibiotic Do's and Don'ts (where we share what we use instead).
In short, antibiotics kill ALL bacteria, including those needed for digestion, protection and even those that help make vitamins.
As we said in the video, dog bladder stones are serious and can be fatal.
Once a dog has had stone removal, he must be on that specific formula dog food but this should not be done forever. One, most of those are in kibble form! For heavens sake. Those foods will balance the minerals to get a dog out of that crisis situation; but long term?
If you're old enough to remember the old Burger King (?) commercials where the old lady says, "Where's the beef?" you'll see my point. Dogs need meat protein which you won't find in those prescription diets.
In short, if you think corn starch as a main ingredient has any nutritional benefit for your dog, think again.
In fact I can't think of any living being who would benefit from cornstarch.
