These are simple home remedies, but not solutions.
Cranberries - While cranberries are commonly used to treat urinary tract infections in humans, they can also be used to treat urinary tract infections in pets. Cranberries’ acidity can lower the pH of your pet’s urine, which can help treat and prevent UTIs. Many cranberry juices contain a lot of sugar. Instead, you can supplement your pet’s diet with cranberry capsules (pills), supplements, or powder. You should first test the pH levels in your pet’s urine before giving it cranberry. While the acidity of cranberries may help with some UTIs, it may also aggravate the condition in others. Only give your pet cranberry supplements if his urine is too alkaline.
Apple Cider Vinegar - Apple cider vinegar can also be used to reduce the pH of your pet’s urine, thereby eliminating and preventing harmful bacteria. Every day, add half a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to your pet’s food. Mix it with chicken or beef broth to mask the bitter taste. Just make sure there are no onions in the broth, as they are toxic to pets. Apple cider vinegar, like cranberries, is only effective if your pet’s urine is too alkaline. You can test your pet’s pH at home with at-home kits or diagnostic pet litter, or you can have your veterinarian perform a reliable test.
Chondroitin and Glucosamine - While these two supplements are commonly used to treat arthritis joint pain, they can also help reduce the symptoms of a UTI. Glucosamine can assist in the replacement of a compound in the lining of the pet’s bladder wall. Chondroitin aids in the preservation of this compound.
