Natural Remedies for Dog UTI: Effective, Easy Treatments

Sea Salt, D Mannose
Posted by Ms (Tempe Az) on 08/27/2016

My 13 lb mix has her third UTI in 11 months. I hate giving her antibiotics so am very happy to have found this site. I have been using a mix of the suggestions here. I started with ACV 1/4 tsp in water and that made her throw up, I tried again adding a little raw honey and that went better, did that 2 times a day for two days without much difference,

I then tried 1/4 tsp of sea salt twice a day for 2 days, that went well--blood gone, stream good.

I have d-mannose in the house so we are into the second day of 1/2 tsp three times a day. Stream still good, no blood, urine still very cloudy. I am checking her urine PH each morning and it is 7.5-8.0. I am very happy she is urinating easily, blood gone, etc., but concerned about how alkaline her urine still is.

My question is -- how long does it take for the infection to dissipate completely using these methods, and for her PH to return to the acid level. Thanks for any input and for this fantastic thread!!
