ISCAID Guidelines Summary: Diagnosis & Management of Bacterial Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary tract disease in dogs and cats can be complicated and frustrating to manage, especially in light of the veterinarian’s increasingly important role in antibiotic stewardship. The International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases (ISCAID) has set forth updated guidelines to help veterinarians in the diagnosis and management of urinary tract infections. These recommendations are based on available data from veterinary and human medicine along with expert opinion and in consideration of principles of infectious disease, antimicrobial therapy, antimicrobial resistance, pharmacology, and internal medicine.

The highlights of these recommendations for sporadic bacterial cystitis, recurrent cystitis, pyelonephritis, and subclinical bacteriuria are summarized in this new resource from NVA’s Medical Advisory Board.
