    Default Cystitis in my 6 month old boy

    My 6 months old boy Bentley has got cystitis. I took him to the vet after he was peeing a lot in the house which is out of character for him.He was peeing every 10 mins & struggling at that.The vet put him on medication & they tested his pee which was found to have a lot of blood in which is a sign of cystitis.The vet said I should put him on wet food while he has cystitis & then onto a mix of 50/50 wet & dry for the future. He asked him I was going to breed him later on which I said I was considering it.He said if he gets it again he will need to be casterated as he has seen dogs with prostrates really swollen bad.

    Has anybody else had cystitis with their Bulldogs ? It is unusual for a dog of such young age to get this I was told by the vet.

    Since it's caused by bacterial infection or crystals in the urine it should be treated like a UTI, so I would be certain after he takes the round if antibiotics you take him in immediately to test his urine again. I do not see you mention any antibiotics though.... Was he given any?? The wet food is a good idea as well and lots and lots of fluids. Encourage him to drink as much as you can.

    It is not very common in males at all so be sure to finish all meds and get him tested again as @bullmama stated

    Hope he gets better soon and this is not a chronic condition for him, if it is then I would do as the vet suggests and neuter him.

    Bentley finished his course of antibiotics & tested free of cystitis. Like the vet said I switched his food from dry over to wet & dry 50/50 using Wainwrights hypo-allergenic & low allergen food turkey,duck & lamb flavours.
    He is a happy boy once again.
