Bladder Infection

We recommend the introduction of probiotics, such as yoghurt, in their meals. You can also add 1 - 2 tbsp of Apple Cider Vinegar to their meals / water to balance their pH levels. Cranberry and Blueberry can also greatly help with detoxifying and preventing further reoccurrence of the infection. It is also advisable to encourage your pet to consume more water in a bid to rid the body of the prevalent infection. For this reason, you can invest in a water fountain that entices your pet to drink more often.
