Urinary tract infection in dogs and cats and antibiotic sensitivities of bacterial isolates



Urinary tract infection in dogs and cats and antibiotic sensitivities of bacterial isolates



Journal of the Japan Veterinary Medical Association 49(7): 449-453



63 dogs and 41 cats with urinary tract infections were studied. Aged dogs and the Shih tzu breed were most commonly affected. No sex predilection was seen in the dogs. In cats, many cases were <2 years old and 70% of cases were male. 20% of the dogs and cats had basal diseases and many dogs had urinary calculi. Enterobacteriaceae and gram positive cocci were isolated from most cats and dogs. Streptococcus canis and Xanthomonas spp. were specifically isolated from dogs and cats, respectively.
