Urinary Tract Infections: Symptoms and Treatment?
Urinary tract infections are infections that affect any part of the urinary tract, though they most often start in the urethra and bladder before affecting the kidneys. In the bladder or urethra, urinary tract infections are not particularly dangerous. However, they can easily spread to the kidneys, causing serious complications. The symptoms of urinary tract infection differ depending on which part of the urinary tract is affected. Lower urinary tract infections often cause a burning sensation and/or pain when urinating. They can also cause discolored urine from presence of blood, pelvic pain, rectal pain, frequent urination, passing small amounts of urine despite urgency and cloudy urine. Kidney infections, which happen when a bladder or urethra infection spread to the kidneys, produce more severe symptoms. They can include fever, nausea, vomiting and back pain. Painful, burning and frequent urination are often still present as well. It is recommended for people experiencing urinary tract infections to see a doctor for an antibiotic. This is because many urinary tract infections will not go away on their own and can worsen with time. The doctor will typically prescribe an antibiotic and possibly a urinary pain reliever. In the event that a kidney infection has occurred, intravenous treatment may be necessary. Sometimes hospitalization is even necessary, depending on the extent of the infection. Home treatment is not recommended for urinary tract infections. However, there are some things an individual can do to help the medicine along and relieve their discomfort during the infection. Drinking plenty of fluids is the best ways to help the body get rid of an infection in the urinary tract. Water or sugar-free juice is best. A hot pad on the lower abdomen can help relieve bladder discomfort. Lastly, wearing loose, clean clothing and showering daily can help as well. The cause of urinary tract infections is bacteria making its way into the urinary tract. These bacteria may flush out on their own or go away before they even begin to multiply. However, they can also take root and multiply quickly. The most common bacterial cause of urinary tract infections is E. coli. Women are more likely to be infected through intercourse and because of the proximity of the anus to the urethra.
What is Urinary tract infection?
The urinary tract (UTI) is the path that urine (Pee) travels from the bladder, through the urethra to the exit of the body at the Vagina or Penis. The lining of the urethra becomes infected, swollen & painful & the urine smells strong & is often discolored. An increase in temperature often follows any infection & a strong burning sensation usually happens with passing urine. UTI's can also be symptoms of Sexually Transmitted diseases (STD's) so they should not be taken lightly. There are a few home remedies, and Over the counter remedies that ease the pain but antibiotics will clear it up pretty fast, it is a good idea to see a Dr to make sure it is nothing more and get the antibiotics. When an infection reaches your bladder or kidneys, this is termed urinary track infection. These infections often originate from your stool, which carries bacteria that lives in your large intestine, and enters the urinary track through your urethra (the whole where the pee comes out). Bladder infections are the most common.

What are good treatments for a bladder infection?
Although a urinary tract infection (UTI) seems like a simple condition, it is not and that is why you haven't found any easy home remedies or cures. There are only two ways to treat a UTI: medication and (if you're lucky) time. For the medication you can find some over-the-counter remedies, but your doctor can describe a more effective line of treatment. If you're going to try and 'let things run their course', good luck and make sure you drink LOTS of water - your body's going to need it.
Asked in Veterinary Medicine
Are there any home remedies for canine bladder infection?
There are home remedies that are available on the internet (just Google the keywords listed in your question). However, a bladder infection in a dog is caused by bacteria. If the bacteria are not killed, they can cause an ascending infection, attack the kidneys and in long-standing infections cause kidney failure which is invariably fatal. Using home remedies for infections that can generally be easily, effectively and affordably treated through conventional Western medicine is not advised.

You have pressure after you pee and some spotting when you wipe yourself and you are peeing a lot?
It sounds like a urinary tract infection. A UTI can cause these symptoms with or without pain or burning during urination and back pain. Some home remedies while waiting for a doctor's appointment are to increase your fluid intake and drink Cranberry juice. These usually won't cure it though. An antibiotic prescription easily gets rid of the infection. Make sure to take the entire prescription (don't just stop when the symptoms go away or the infection will come back stronger).
