General information on Dysuria
Dysuria is a urinary tract disorder that is most commonly known as painful urination and is characterized by the frequent, straining, and, sometimes, failure to urinate. Typically dysuria is caused by an underlying condition. Some of the conditions that can cause dysuria are stones in the bladder or urethra, inflammation of the urethra, urinary tract infections, tumors in the bladder or urethra, a stricture, or a neurological problem.
Symptoms of Dysuria
Some of the symptoms of dysuria may be: strain while urinating, dribbling, crying out in pain while urinating, swelling of the lower abdomen, pain in the lower abdomen, excessive licking of the vulva or penis, and visible attempts made to urinate without actually passing any urine. In severe cases of dysuria, blood clots, blood in the urine, and passing mucus may also occur.
Treatments for Dysuria
The treatment for dysuria is targeted at treating the underlying cause of the condition. Depending on the underlying condition, some treatments may include antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, or surgery. It is important to monitor the dog’s ability to urinate and to make sure that adequate amounts of urine are being passed.
