Canine Cystitis - Dog Cystitis & Gonorrhea

Cystitis, usually caused by a temperature reduction, is extremely painful. Urine usually comes out in small spurts of urine and in a lot of pain and moans. It can also be tainted with blood.In spite of the pain, cystitis is less dangerous than nephritis. To start with, the dog must drink a lot of water. Heat also alleviates the pain. However, if he doesn't get better soon, take him to the veterinarian.

Dog gall bladder stones
Pain while urinating, but also when doing other movements, along with a hunching of the loin, can be signs that he has gall bladder stones (kidney stones are less frequent).

Blood in the urine is another sign of this affliction. But only an X-ray plate will confirm this. If the stone can not go through the urinary conduct, my advice is you put him through an operation. The chances of life are obviously fewer in the case of chronic inflammation or uremia.

Canine gonorrhea
In old dogs it's common to find a pus-infected greenish/yellowish drop in the hairs at the tip of the penis (at the opening of the foreskin). Some of the pus also comes out at the end of the urination. In that case we're talking about canine gonorrhea. It is a very chronic inflammation to the foreskin, a serious affliction. The veterinarian will give you a syringe with a strong antibiotic, intended, actually, for treating cow udders.

The opening of the foreskin has to be cleaned with a cotton swab and a cloth. Then, you carefully introduce the syringe – without the needle – into the foreskin (but NOT into the urinary conduct) and squeeze a few drops, which don't hurt, and then carefully distribute them by means of an external massage.
