Symptoms of Prostate Problems in Dogs & Pets
Male dogs and cats have a prostate gland just like men do. In order to understand the implications of prostate problems such as an enlarged prostate, one has to have an understanding of the location and anatomy of the prostate.
The prostate gland is found in male pets only. It is small, consists of two lobes, and lies just behind the bladder, surrounding the urethra and below the rectum. When a male pet is neutered, most of the prostate gland is removed. As a result, prostate problems seldom occur. Enlarged prostates often affect older intact male animals.
When an intact dog or cat grows older, hormone levels of testosterone and estrogen can change, causing the prostate gland to swell. A swollen prostate gland can cause discomfort and pain, and makes urinating and defecating for your pet very difficult. Neutering male pets at an early age helps to stop normal growth of the prostate. If your pet is neutered later in life, after testosterone is removed, the prostate gland may shrink.
Common symptoms include walking abnormally (like walking on eggshells), stiff rear legs or straight knee-ed, straining to urinate or pass stool and constipation, and abdominal swelling or discomfort.
