The main object of this study was to determine the urinary tract infections among dogs that were admitted to the University Veterinary Hospitals at Kokkalai and Mannuthy during 2 year period from 2010 to 2012. A total of 2545 dog cases, 66 cases with clinical signs suggestive of urinary tract infections were selected. The major clinical signs in the study were pyuria, stranguria, haematuria, anorexia, pollakiuria, foul smelling urine or dark yellow urine and emesis. Elevated rectal temperature, respiratory rate and tachycardia were observed on general clinical examination. The most common bacteria isolated from urine sample were E.coli followed by Proteus mirabilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococci spp. Ultrasonographically, thickness of the urinary bladder was the most common feature. Hyperechoic particles in the urinary bladder, thickened kidney cortex, hyperechoic kidney with reduced corticomedullary distinction and hyperechoic renal pelvis and diffuse increase in echogenicity of prostatic parenchyma were also observed. Haematobiochemical changes such as markedly increased ESR values, total leucocyte count and neutrophils values, hypoalbuminemia and increased urea concentration were observed.
