Prostatitis in Dogs
When the prostate gland becomes infected with bacteria, the diagnosis is prostatitis. Prostatitis is more common in unneutered older male dogs. Any owner who suspects that their male dog may be suffering from prostatitis should seek veterinary care, as it can become a serious illness if left untreated.
Prostatitis can be treated with IV, anti-bacterial medications and in some cases castration may be necessary.
