Dog Penis and Vagina Infections and Inflammation

Jun 7, 2008
To begin with we will look at the few symptoms that could alert you to a penis and vagina infection in your dog , then we will go on to discuss the problem further and try and determine what you can do about this condition and who you should see to help your dog to recovery.

The symptoms that you should look out for in the case of dog penis and vagina infections include the following:

1. The dog may go to the toilet a lot more than usual

2. There will be blood in the small amounts of urine produced

3. The dog will struggle to produce urine

As expected penis and vagina infections can be very uncomfortable and painful for your dog. Simply put, bacteria travelling up the urethra which is the tube inside the vagina or the penis leading up to the bladder, is what causes this condition. Over time, the condition continues to become worse.

This condition will cause the urethra to become inflamed and very soar. This, in turn causes the urethra tube to become squashed and slightly compressed thus making it difficult for the urine to pass through the tube which results in discomfort and pain for the dog.

When the vet suspects a dog to be infected with vagina or penis inflammation the first thing they will do is to take a urine sample for testing. They will test it for blood cells, acidic (pH) levels and glucose.

If the vet finds blood vessels in the urine sample taken for testing it will confirm the suspicion that the dog has inflammation in the penis/vagina area or the bladder. They vet will then, most probably, check for possible cystitis.

Glucose in the urine is a sign of possible diabetes in the dog and it encourages bacteria growth. If there is a high level of glucose in the dog's urine a different kind of treatment will be needed to cure it and make sure that the dog becomes less prone to infections and inflammations.

Samples showing high levels of pH levels in the urine may mean that the dogs urine does not contain adequate amounts of acid to fight the bacteria making it more vulnerable to bacterial attacks. To treat this, your vet may suggest some special food and drinks to help lower the pH level.

Once the vet had conducted all the above mentioned tests and procedures only then will they will be able to make the best diagnoses and recommend the appropriate treatment which may include antibiotics and inflammatory medication.
