Urinary tract infections (UTI) are one of the most frequently encountered disorders in companion animals and also one of the most common reasons for prescribing antimicrobial therapy. Most urinary tract infections are caused by pathogenic bacteria, although very rarely, fungi and viruses can be the source. Only infections caused by bacteria will be discussed here. Development of UTI depends on the virulence of the bacteria and alterations in host defences.
