Is it true that a dog with a thyroid problem may be more susceptible to infections like urinary tract infections?


Answer by  katharine (3981)

It can be true. Dogs that have anything wrong with them tend to be more susceptible to infections. Urinary tract infections especially seem to occur commonly in dogs that are also battling something else, such as thyroid problems. There are medications vets can prescribe to help keep thyroid levels in check.

Yes. Any dog that has a compromised immune system is more susceptible to other problems like UTI's. Another major cause of Urinary Tract Infections is a poor diet. If you are feeding your dog a lot of table scraps it can cause your dog to get a Urinary Tract Infection because a lot of those foods have tons of chemicals.
