Abstract:
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) typically result from normal skin and GI tract flora ascending the urinary tract and overcoming the normal urinary tract defenses that prevent colonization. Bacterial UTI is the most common infectious disease of dogs, affecting 14% of all dogs during their lifetime. The main objective of the study was to identify the agewise, breed-wise and gender-wise occurrence of urinary tract infection from the dogs that were presented to Veterinary College Hospital, Banglore during the study period from July 2022 to December 2022. A total of 2545 dogs were presented to the Veterinary College Hospital during the study period, out of these 65 dogs were considered for the study with clinical signs and history suggestive of UTI and having more than 103 cfu/ml on quantitative urine culture. Urinalysis and sonographic changes were evaluated. Maximum occurrence of urinary tract infection was found in dogs between the age of 1 - 3 years (36.92%). Most common breed of dog with urinary tract infection identified in this study was Labrador retriever (20.00 %). Female dogs (55.384%) showed higher occurrence than male dogs (44.615%).
