Apple Cider Vinegar for Bladder Infection in Dogs

By Jamie Conrad

Canine bladder infections are caused when bacteria enter and infest the dog's urinary tract. The condition can be uncomfortable and painful. Veterinary treatment is recommended for canine bladder infection, but apple cider vinegar is a popular homeopathic remedy you might consider.


Apple cider vinegar neutralizes bacteria in the dog's bladder to relieve a bladder infection, and maintains acid and alkaline balance in the digestive tract.


Apple cider vinegar is a natural way to relieve discomfort caused by urinary tract problems.


Add 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar to your dog's food once daily until symptoms of urinary problems clear.


While apple cider vinegar can be an effective remedy for canine bladder infections, it is not meant to replace a trip to the veterinarian or medications prescribed by your veterinarian.


Severe canine urinary tract infections require immediate veterinary care to prevent the infection from progressing to more serious medical conditions.
