Urinary track infections

I have heard from someone that Male Hav Dogs have issues with Urinary Track Infections. A breeder told her about this health issue, that the males are prone to Urinary Track Infections and the nuetering encourages this.

I just heard this today, and Grizzly's scheduled to be fixed on tuesday, and I'm concerned abt this... Has anyone heard this before???


thanks everyone

Kubrick is 3 and has never had a UTI. Hitch is 1.5 and has never had one either.

I really doubt that neutering would encourage UTI's. What does having balls have to do with urine production or bacteria?

I would think female dogs are more prone to UTI's... It's more common for women to get UTI's than men. Wouldn't the same be true for dogs?

Every dog I've known with a UTI was a female. I know in cats, feamle are MUCH more prone to them, but it is more serious (should be considered an emergency) in a male cat, as they are apt to block.

not sure about Havs but it would likely be more common in females ,shorter urethra, That's why it is important to always have water accessible , good diet and the chance to eliminate as often as possible.

Sounds like an excuse for not neutering, and a poor one at that.
