The most effective way to tell if your dog is suffering from nasty dog urinary tract infections is to observe your dog’s urinating habits. Check if your dog excretes a moderate amount of urine every time he urinates. If you notice that your dog has to make several attempts before he can excrete urine from his bladder, the chances are that your dog is suffering from a urinary problem, otherwise known as a canine UTI.
Urinary incontinence in dogs commonly occurs in female dogs, especially if your dog has been spayed. If your dog has this problem, you may notice urine dribbling out when your dog is lying still or when she gets up from a prone position. You could also notice a strong smell of urine around your dog and notice wet fur on her bottom. These are almost sure signs of some kind of dog urinary problem.
