Prostate Problems in Dogs

Many illnesses and diseases that affect us humans can sometimes also be a danger to the health of our pets. One of the most common is prostate problems in dogs.

The main prostate problem that can affect your dog is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia or (BHP). Just as in humans, it usually appears in the older dog. The prostate increases in size and puts pressure on the bladder causing urinary problems.

BPH can cause very troublesome symptoms and may worsen very gradually, with the increasing age of your dog.

If your dog is suffering from prostate problems you may notice him in pain during urination. He may be trying to relieve himself more often than normal but straining without passing much or any urine. Perhaps the way he walks is looking uncomfortable, taking smaller steps or holding his legs stiffly.

If you see any of these signs take your dog to the vet to be examined.


Normally the treatment of BPH in male dogs is neutering. Prostate problems in dogs can be avoided if they are neutered at a very early age, before the onset of puberty. This prevents the normal growth of the prostate. Dogs that are neutered later in life, because of the lack of testosterone, the prostate gland will shrink.

Although neutering can help with the prevention of prostate problems in dogs, it’s not everyone who wants to take their dog down this path. For these dogs, a more natural way is becoming the best option.

A safe and natural herbal and homeopathic remedy for treating BPH in dogs is available. This remedy will address all the major symptoms associated with prostate problems in dogs, and with regular use, will help to shrink the prostate gland.

This natural remedy can also be used as a preventative method and to promote optimal prostate health in male dogs, especially for those owners who do not want to have their pets neutered.
