ACV is perfect for urinary infections and bladder problems in dogs!!!

rottweiler

French translation


My 4 year-old female rottweiler developed a urinary infection and started having "accidents" inside the house.

The pee had a very bad odor and nearly ruined my rug. Also, when I would take her out, she would do series of "dry" pees, when nothing would come out, but she would squad down like she had to pee.

So, my grandma told me to give her 2 tbs of ACV mixed with plain white yogurt. I was really sceptical that this would work and was getting ready to spend $300, I don't have, for a vet.

The ACV worked like magic!
I gave her yogurt and ACV for dinner and by the morning all the peeing stopped. She went out once in the morning, peed once and came back in. The pee didn't smell bad, she seemed much calmer and happy.

ACV works like magic in urinary infections and bladder problems in dogs. Definitely recommended!

It saves you the money and the trip to the vet, where they would just dose your dog up with antibiotics, which then in turn wipe out all the good bacteria.

Definitely, go with ACV if you suspect your dog is having troubles peeing.

Vet said my dog’s problem was old age but it was UTI
by: Anda, Nicosia, Cyprus

I live on the small island of Cyprus.
 
For over a year, my female 13-year-old, sterilized, poodle cross, rescued dog had urinary incontinence.
 
My vet said it was because of old age. I always try my best to avoid giving my pets any kind of drugs, so I gathered up all the patience within me and I would clean the urine from my dog’s fur (when she was lying on her side, urine went all over her) and wash her bedding every day, for months.
 
I could see that she was feeling very uncomfortable and avoiding to go to bed. Instead she would prefer lying on the floor. I think that she knew that cleaning the floor was easier for me… lol
 
A few months ago, urinating on herself nearly stopped, but a month or so later, it started again.
 
This seemed very strange to me, since the diagnose was "old age urinary incontinence". Why would it stop and start again after a few weeks? I decided to look it up and started searching the web for answers.
 
THANK you so much for all the advice in your page. I thought to try ACV as you suggest it, so as to eliminate the possibility of a urinary infection.
 
I mixed some bio ACV into live Greek (sheep) yogurt and gave it to her for about ten days. And it is already one whole month since she last urinated on herself.
 
Please, note that from day 2, her psychology changed, she looked so very happy, that I understood that this is it: it is a urinary infection and we found the cure.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.
Regards, Anda

ACV and Plain Greek Yogurt for Shitzu
by: Anonymous

After noticing that our dog was leaking foul smelling urine all over the house, shaking her tail, and walking stiffly, I Googled the symptoms and noted that she appeared to have either a UTI or a bladder infection.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) was reportedly a treatment for both. I accordingly mixed one teaspoon of ACV, one of plain Greek yogurt, and some peanut butter to make sure she ate the mixture.

Two days late, our dog is looking and walking back to normal. She is still leaking a little but nothing like she was two days ago. Two days ago there was blood in her urine. That is no longer the case.

Thank you for those who shared their stories. We are so relieved.

Yorkie mix
by: Anonymous

My yorkie schnauzer mix was peeing and I notice blood on his fur, when I touch the fur it as bright red. I took him out again and confirm there was blood in his pee.

I went to the Vet and they wanted $480 USD to do all the test and meds. I cant afford this, I paid for the initial $37 office visit.


Upon researching on the web on Dogs with UTI, I came across ACV, my dog is neutered. I bought Bragg ACV and gave a tspn mixed in with boiled chicken.

The next morning, when he pee, there were only sign of little blood. Afternoon peeing was clear yellow, Evening again clear. This morning.. clear.

I'm going to continue this regiment for at least a few more days just to be sure.. but it looks like it's working well.

For how long do I have to give it to my dog?
by: Anonymous

My 5 year old Golden started peeing blood yesterday, and I took her to the vet and it cost me $250 an urine analysis and a culture.

I just came across this website and I would like to know for how long can I give the ACV to my dog and how much would be for her (66 lb dog).

The vet insist on an ultrasound or Xray because she may have bladder stones, but I don't have money for those exams. Please HELP!!! I am desperate. Thank you.

ACV benefits
by: Anonymous

I was awakened by my 14.75 year old toy poodle barking in pain at 5 a.m. on July 4th morning.

It was apparent that he had a bladder infection following my witnessing the same yelping at 6 a.m. As vets were closed, and he would die if left at an emergency vet as he has severe separation anxiety following the death of my husband, I searched for holistic approaches and found ACV.

After 2 doses of the Apple cider vinegar, he urinated without pain and went back to his food.

I highly would recommend ACV it was the Bragg brand, organic and unfiltered.

Montana,

I put ACV in the dog water every single day. I eye ball it, but I guess it's about a tablespoon.

Another great thing is my sheltie is a girl, and she doesn't pee out our grass with the ACV added to the water.

Chronic UTIs
by: Montana Pearl

My husband's 8 years old shepherd was squatting and struggling to urinate. Took her to the vet which cost us $57 for antibiotics which worked great for about 2 weeks.

Now she has a UTI again and I have tried her on straight apple cider vinegar one tablespoon twice a day and she's peeing fine I think she had a string of blood clot came out in her urine and now she acts like she feels so much better that I didn't have to go take her back to the vet and pay for another Veterinary visit plus the medication recommended to other dog lovers.

I would like to know if anybody has an answer to this question, what is a safe time to leave your dog on the apple cider vinegar or can you just add it to their water to keep the pH balance normal or will it hurt them?

Treatment is working some
by: Anonymous

My little terrier started dry squatting and had blood drops in her urine Saturday.

I looked online to see what I could do for her and found this page. I went out that night and picked up the Braggs ACV.

Well, she was about the same Sunday but got a little better with 1 tsp of ACV mixed with yogurt. I kept giving her this with her food twice a day and by Tuesday she showed no signs of a UTI and peeing okay.

I have also been giving her chicken broth because she wouldn't drink water at all. And gave her wet food too. Wednesday was good too. No signs.

Well today, Thursday, she started dry squatting again and drops of blood just while ago. I have still been giving her ACV and mixed it with yogurt.

I need some advice or may have to take her to the vet if this keeps on.

I have a question
by: Anonymous

I have a 3 year old Golden Retriever with only one kidney and an occluder for a non-working sphincter muscle.

She has had a constant UTI caused be e-coli bacteria her whole life. Now the e-coli has become resistant to all antibiotics except three and they have the potential to cause damage to her one kidney.

Is it possible that the ACV can kill the bacteria for good? I am already feeding her yogurt and cranberry supplements.

Old English Bully had a UTI
by: ABullylover

So I was so happy to find this site. I have a 131 lb. Old English Bulldog. He had what seemed like a UTI because he was having some issues with trying to urinate.

After reading these post I gave him a cap full of ACV in his water bowl and literally within 2 hours he was able to pee. Oh my goodness, I will keep doing this for the next couple of days and then for a week once a month for prevention.

But thank you all so very much. This was awesome. My heart was hurting for my poor baby and his suffering. So thank you all, thank you thank you thank you! This really did work.

A miracle cure

My little ShihTzu started showing signs of a uti but I didn't realize it at the time as being this then remembered my other Shih Tzu who had it plus stones several years earlier, that she had surgery for.

Well anyway, after reading all the articles, I tried it and my goodness within 2 hours she was up playing running and acting like her normal self, so for me it is a miracle.

I will continue it for a week then after that, once weekly as maintenance and prevention. God bless all of you who posted about this.

ACV, cranberry juice & natural Greek yogurt works!
by: Anonymous

Hi All,

Thank you for the advice, I tried the above after my black Labrador suffered several bouts over a 6 month period and after taking to vet, which they put him on expensive antibiotics, which can have side effects and within hours I could see improvement in my black Labradors UTI.

I continued for 2 days and no more signs!
I continued with the cranberry juice (organic and sugar free) once/ twice a week to once a month as a preventative
Has not returned!

I cut out commercial dry food and now only feed both my labs fresh food only.

Thanks to all for posting 🐾

D-Mannose
by: Anonymous

My dog peed on the floor and there was some blood in it. I used a urine dipstick to test her next pee and it showed infection and blood.

I have given her a dose of D-Mannose and added Braggs ACV to her water.

I don't know how long she has had this UTI but I will continue with more ACV tomorrow and D-Mannose, plus I will continue to monitor her urine with the dipstick tests.

Hopefully the infection is e - coli, in which case the D-Mannose will clear it up.
I will continue with the ACV as it is healthy anyway. Although it is acidic it actually alkalises! So balances PH.
It has many other health benefits including prevention of stones and arthritis, caused by calcium build up.

My dog has always been healthy and raw fed. I suspect this problem has been caused by us recently supplementing her food with dried biscuit! This I will stop immediately!

I am hoping this natural treatment will avoid the need for anti biotics, although if I do have to take that route, I would also give probiotics 2 hrs before and after the antibiotics, to replace the good bacteria that is wiped out.

IT REALLY WORKS!

Came on here to this site early yesterday morning looking for help with my 2 year old female Rottie that kept us up all night having to go outside to urinate multiple times.

The poor girl didn't make it out in time twice... Anyway, I gave her three doses of the ACV with yogurt and she slept throughout the whole night like she normally does...

I plan to continue the dosage once a day over the next few days. But hey! Thank you all for your contribution to this page!

It's good knowing that some things you find on the internet are true and actually do work! :)

My poor 9 month Pomchi has a UTI
by: Anonymous

My 9 month Pomchi has a UTI...she started peeing multiple times in a row... And I noticed she has 2 drops of dry blood around her urethra, but no blood in her pee though!

I think she literally just started having problems today so I'm hoping I caught it EARLY!!

I once had to give antibiotics to my cat and hated to see what effects the antibiotics did to my cat so I don't want to give it to my dog. I love my dog as one of my kids and I'm no where close to being rich.

I will update again in a couple of days of being on yogurt and ACV.

I'm wondering if the cause of the UTI is from the new dog food PURINA BENEFUL INCREDIBITES FOR SMALL DOGS. I heard the biggest cause of UTI is the dry dog food..is anybody else experiencing a lot of UTI with this dog food?

Another Follow Up. Love the Testimonials!
by: Swaters

When I go back and read comments on this page, I get super excited.

My sheltie, who is now almost 2, still has periodic discomfort around her little bottom. She also gets fairly sluggish. When I see the signs, I give her one week of 1/2 cup Greek yogurt with probiotics added, mixed with 3T ACV. I do this twice a day. I also give her cranberry supplements from Vitamin Cottage.

After one serving of the yogurt mixture, she's back to her normal self. Give me ACV, cranberry, and yogurt for my LaLa girl anytime over antibiotics all of the time.

Just about a month ago, I took things a step further, and I put LaLa on a grain free diet. She continues to lick less and less.

I use ACV for so many things in my household. It's been a staple in my home for a very long time. I'm glad to see others really embracing the vast amount of benefits of ACV!!!

acv for uti worked!
by: Anonymous

With some reservations, I decided to try Bragg's Apple cider vinegar for my 9 year old lab mix who has had several uti's with ensuing vet visits and antibiotics.

Had read online of fairly amazing results. As a retired nurse, I do not reject natural cures, nor do I reject medical interventions. But, on a tight budget, and with the welfare of my girl in mind, decided to try the acv.

She had been excessively licking her genitals for days, a sure indication of recurrence of uti. Ran to the health food store and grabbed a large 6.99 bottle of Bragg's. Put about 3 tsp in her drinking water and a capful in some food. By that night, I no longer observed the licking and haven't since. This is ALWAYS the indication of a uti for her.

A urologist would tell me the body's own buffering system would disallow acidity of the urine which might cure a uti. I don't know. I just know she has been fine several days.

Cranberry tablets did not provide this sort of relief. I am amazed and grateful!

ACV
by: Anonymous

My 3 year old Pug suddenly couldn't pee. I immediately started reading about stones and crystals. He would strain so hard to try it broke Mr heart.

He stopped eating and drinking, then he vomited a couple of times. I noticed that he was spotting around the house something he has never done before, Vets are expensive so I read about plain apple cider vinegar.

Since he wouldn't take food or drink, I started looking in my kitchen for something to get this in him and I found a kitchen syringe, I diluted the ACV 2 teaspoons to a cup and slowly held his back to make him drink a little but not to choke him or make him gag, he didn't like it but it worked.

It took around 24 hours but he got his appetite back and will drink water in his bowl mixed with a little ACV. I think the culprit here is the dry dog food so now I'm preparing his food moist The biggest plus is he can urinate again, Thank God, I'm happy.

ACV and UTI

ACV AND SUPPLEMENTS
by: Dog Guy

My Brittany mix has a uti so I investigated other remedies besides antibiotics.
I myself hate taking antibiotics. I try to take supplements to bolster my immune system. I've found out that juniper berry, cranberry or blueberry, parsley leaf, uva ursi leaf, and marshallow root are all used to treat and manage recurrent uti.

I found this info at moderndogmagazine.com. you should talk with your vet about dosage. It may vary with breed, weight and other issues unknown to the common person. I used acv and in 1 dose the smell was gone and so was the need to urinate constantly. But I also read that it should only be used for 1 week and once monthly as maintenance. If it doesn't work within the week see your vet as there may be other issues.

Also just treating any pet for something you think they may have is dangerous. You should always seek the advice of a vet before treatment. Early diagnoses could prevent damage or death. If you like holistic instead of antibiotics there are vets that are familiar with holistic medicine. Your current vet may surprise you with their knowledge also. You wouldn't treat a child or yourself without being sure. Your pet deserves the same consideration.

Paraplegic pup with UTI
by: Dar

I adopted a paraplegic pup in May who's unable to urinate on her own.
When I first adopted her, she had a terrible UTI because the family she was with did not know they were supposed to be expressing her bladder.

MY vet tried Baytril first but that didn't work and then she prescribed some medication that required me to wear rubber gloves while administering. I don't recall the name of the medication but I don't want to give my dog anything that requires me to wear rubber gloves. It doesn't seem safe for either of us.

I do express her bladder several times a day but she now has another UTI. I'm going to try the ACV with yogurt.

Fingers and paws crossed, please.

Yogurt versus other additives
by: Anonymous

As a vet tech I have seen a lot of pups with utis.

My recommendation and erring on the side of caution: As a preventative and for early onset utis, 2 tbls of acv per day for pups OVER 30 lbs may be given 3 days to acidify the urinary tract and flush/kill the bacteria.

Continue with caution beyond this point and stop or seek further treatment if it does not resolve in a week.

If you have a puppy or small dog start with 1 tbls to prevent any OVER dosing and bloody diarrhea, if he doesn't react increase to 1.5 tbls, puppies under 6 Months should check with a vet as it could signal a bigger immune system issue.

Remember it is ACID and should be used in moderation but a regular (1/week or month) cleanse may help in prevention and cure.

Dogs prone to utis should consider a daily multivitamin, fruits/veggies (esp. with Vitamin B), regular bathing of the area, and stress reducing activities. Whole Cranberries, blueberries, and citrus fruits are great "treats" that will also help acidify urine (absolutely no fruit peels or seeds, which contain traces of cyanide, though).

The use of yogurt adds good bacteria back into the stomach should the acv kill some Plus it HIDES the scent. Broth works well or pouring over kibble too.

I hope this clarifies and condenses some of the science behind the treatment as well as adds some helpful holistic advice for treatment and prevention of UTIs.

Follow up
by: Swaters

It's been a very long time since I posted, but I've read through the comments since my last post, and I became very excited.

Once I opted to try ACV for my Sheltie, I noticed improvements in a matter of days. I added 2T to a half cup "good quality" Greek yogurt containing acidophilus. I did this for about 8 weeks. After about 4 weeks through, I put her on chewable cranberry supplements, and did that through a bottle, and I also put her on chewable children's acidophilus. Again, I did that through a bottle.

I'm in awe over the results. She has been symptom free since before the new year. If I ever feel like she might be licking too much, I give her the yogurt, but with 1T ACV, for a few days. As far as maintenance, she gets two capfuls of ACV in her fresh, filtered water, every day. She and my schnauzer share water, so he's getting it, too. When I refill their water, I don't add more ACV.

She had her comprehensive vet appt in February, and the vet did not dispute any of what I did. He praised me for trying a natural approach, and he said she had the clearest pee, ever, at her visit. I think the bacteria needed to be thoroughly cleared, but just like with some people, her immune system needed a boost. I'm very pleased with my steps and the results!!!!!

ACV cured my dog
by: Debbie

I have a 14 yr. old Lab (65 lbs). I also did the expensive round of urine tests and meds and that did not stop her from peeing indoors.

Then I tried 1 tbsp of ACV added to her water bowl and in two days we noticed no more pee on the floor, she still pees while sleeping during the night. Her bed is lined in plastic and doggie blankets so at least I now have damage control.

I also add white vinegar to her washload of blankets and her bedding come out fresh smelling. She had developed hair loss and itching on her hip due to the pee soaking on her skin all night, but that is better now that she is drinking the ACV water.

My chihuahua is drinking the ACV water now too and it seems he is no longer "marking his territory" in the house. I plan on daily use of the ACV.

Why are people stopping after just a week?

Acv treatment
by: Anonymous

Our 7-year old dog was showing the signs of a bladder or ut infections, frequent urination, increased water consumption.

After giving her ACV twice daily with her food the symptoms seemed to improve and after one week I stopped. A week later the symptoms reappeared much stronger. She urinated in the house and the smell was very bad.

I started it up again, and though the symptoms seemed to improve I was never able to cure it. Finally got an appointment with the vet and now she is on cefpodoxime for 14 days and gets some cranberry pills (crananidin).

I think ACV is a great option,though it didn't work in my case. I will continue to give it to her just because of all the benefits.

ACV and Yogurt Works

I have a Chihuahua mix, and she was peeing in her crate and pretty much everywhere else. I was so frustrated.

After doing research on it and not wanting to give antibiotics, I saw a suggestion on yogurt and acv....2 tblsp of yogurt to 1 tblsp of acv.

I gave that to her only 2 times so far and she hasn't peed inside the house and seems more relaxed now.

Thank you for this blog post, and to all that have responded, I thank you, too.

I will be going to the store first thing in the morning to buy the ACV and yogurt. I have a 9 month old Sheltie that keeps getting UTI's, and, yes, she has been through 4 rounds of anit biotics, an ultra sound, etc. As of today, she's in the middle of her fourth round of meds, she came up stairs, and peed at the top of the steps.

I've read so many different things on ACV, never anything negative, so I will be trying. I'm all about home remedies for myself, and my kiddos, so why not my dogs??? I can't wait to get to the store so I can give this a try!!!!!

Someone mentioned that they give this treatment once a week, another mentioned that they gave the treatment everyday for a week. I'm going to give every day for a week, then gauge from there.

Someone else mentioned tests with money they don't have...amen to that. My account is depleted from all of the meds, pee tests, etc.

I will keep you all posted...!!!

I am trying the ACV today with my 6 pound Pug-Chi mix. She has diabetes and I will continue to use ACV regularly as I also found out it also helps aid in blood sugar stabilizing.

However, I am using this for an UTI. I cannot afford another trip to VCA except to monitor her sugar.

ACV cured my dog's UTI in 24 hours
by: J.S. (N.W. Florida)

Our 14 year old yorkie (10 lbs) had rapid onset of symptoms of a UTI (bloody urine, frequent urination of small amounts of urine, relieving himself inside and loss of appetite).

While researching UTI symptoms/cures, I came across several articles about apple cider vinegar (ACV) use in dogs. We gave him one-half teaspoonful (2.5 ml) that night and again the following day diluted in water and administered with a dosing syringe. By the evening after the second dose, ALL his symptoms were gone. This particular site recommended 3 doses. We will give him a third dose tomorrow afternoon.

Based on this amazing result, we plan on using other proven hollistic treatments. However, common sense must prevail based on your particular pet's health issues, when deciding to go to the vet or not.

Not for all Dogs
by: Anonymous

ACV was recommended for our dogs allergy issues. Tsp in his food and his bowel is screwed up. He is having bloody diarreah lasting 4 days now. Worst advice I've ever taken. While this "may" work for some dogs, I would recommend checking with your vet first. Now he is on Flagyl to help clear that up hopefully.
We researched the efficacy of using ACV before we even considered trying it. Homeopathy is a great thing but my advice is to BE CAREFUL with this stuff and consult your Vet first. This is breaking our hearts!

Apple Cider Vinegar cured my dog's UTI

I was worried when I began seeing a little blood in my dog's urine. Also there were little sugar-like crystals and that really got me concerned.

Since I use ACV for myself (diabetes) and after reading that it is beneficial for dogs and cats, I tried it out. In the first try she is much better. No more UTI.

I plan to continue giving her ACV. Will also start my cats on it.

mix ACV with chicken

Our 6 year old Chihuahua was having the same trouble with "accidents" in the house, strong smelling pee and was generally very antsy and irritable.

by: sylvieguer

(Translated from French)

After giving apple cider vinegar two times to my Rottweiler ( 2 tablespoons in a small bowl of natural yogurt ), her urinary infection appears to be cured!!!

I will continue for 1 week. I think the dog will be really cured of this infection!!!

Thanks for this information!

Trying ACV and Yogurt
by: sherry

I have two shizhu siblings; both have urinary tract infections.

I tried giving them the combination of ACV and water yesterday,that didn't work very well.

Today I tried the AVC and Yogurt and they ate it up.

I'm going to continue this treatment a couple of days. If this doesn't work, I'll just have to pay big bucks to the vet.
