Urinary Tract Infection Symptoms In Cats and Dogs - Homeopathic Bladder Infection Treatment for Canines and Felines
Symptoms of UTI infection in pets
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are uncomfortable and extremely painful. They tend to be more common in cats than dogs and can be caused by bacterial infection, bladder stones or urolithiasis (stones in the urinary tract).
UTIs often recur and can lead to more serious kidney infections if left untreated. Symptoms include
What is the conventional treatment?
Conventional treatment of UTIs will depend on the specific cause of the problem. In many cases, antibiotics are prescribed which invariably relieve the animalís symptoms rather speedily.
However antibiotics tend to have a general weakening effect on the immune system which can cause further problems, especially in the long-term and particularly if they are prescribed regularly for recurrent infections.
are the ingredients of PetAlive
PetAlive UTI-Free contains the following 100% natural ingredients:
(Contains no gluten, artificial flavors, colors or preservatives)
Arctostaphylos uva ursi is a well known urinary antiseptic and excellent treatment for cystitis and all urinary tract problems. This herb contains the glycoside arbutin as the main active constituent. Hydroquinone derived from arbutin and methylarbutin is a powerful anti-bacterial agent and is thought to be responsible for uva ursiís ability to treat urinary tract infections.
Berberis vulgaris: This widely studied herb contains berberine as a main constituent. Berberine is a recognized antibacterial agent and has been shown to kill amoebae in test tube studies. It also prevents bacteria from attaching to cell walls, reduces inflammation and strengthens immune functioning, thereby warding off infection and acting as a preventative as well as a natural antibiotic. Berberis also helps to treat the symptoms of diarrhea, especially if related to E.Coli infection.
Cantharis C6 is prescribed homeopathically for a variety of conditions, including severe cystitis and the burning urine associated with bladder infections, as well as the inability to pass more than a few drops of urine at a time.
Staphysagris C6 is a proven homeopathic remedy also recommended for urogenital problems such as cystitis, as well as urine retention sometimes associated with prostate problems.

How has PetAlive UTI-Free helped others?
"Your UTI Free quickly brought relief to our cat who was visiting the sandbox rather too often. She has had previous bladder infections so we could recognize the symptoms early. Just a few doses had her back to normal again with no need for a visit to the vet and the invariable antibiotics." - Owen G.
"Due to diabetes our cat has ut infections very often no matter what we do. I think the antibiotics make it worse and with your UTI product there is a big improvement since her last infection which cleared very fast and has not returned. Thank you for all the help." - Belinda Travis.
"I am very happy to report that the UTI-Free cleared the infection within days and it has not returned. I will keep it handy for when we need it again." - Tobias
