Pet Urinary Tract Infections: How to Prevent?

A common cause of  UTI is from bacteria, and, once the pet has the infection, they need antibiotics. But, is there a way the infection could be prevented? Which Pets Are Prone to Lower Urinary Tract Problems?

Urinary tract infections (UTI) are a somewhat common problem for dogs and cats. In dogs, UTI can affect just about any breed of dog, but incidences are higher in:

  • female dogs,
  • older dogs, and,
  • dogs with diabetes

In cats: any breed, both genders, and of any age, but is found to be more common in cats between ages 1-4.

Simple UTI Prevention Remedy

Often UTI can be a recurring problem, which can be quite frustrating. There is, though, one simple step of prevention we as pet owners can take if we have a pet caught in this cycle; provide them with the nutrition that will help defend against the primary cause of UTI (bacterial infection), and here are the two heavy hitters for prevention: 

Cranberry Extract

  • Cranberry is clinically proven product used for Urinary Tract Infections (UTI).
  • Cranberries are rich in proanthocyanidins, which exhibit a strong anti-adhesion effect.
  • This anti-adhesion effect means bacteria are unable to attach and colonize in the urinary tract.
  • Cranberry proanthocyanins are easily absorbed by the digestive tract and excreted in the urine.


  • D-Mannose is a simple sugar that occurs naturally in some plants.
  • In the bladder, D-Mannose can adhere to bacteria preventing them from sticking to the lining of the bladder, ultimately prevented them from colonizing in the urinary tract.
  • Because the body utilizes insubstantial amounts of D-Mannose, it does not interfere with blood sugar regulation.

Nusentia® has a nutritional supplement that contains both of these two powerful ingredients in efficacious amounts to provide the defense and support needed for urinary tract health. Utrin® is a natural supplement with both D-mannose and cranberry, offering a powerful defense for healthy urinary function.
