Thankfully most of the pets that we keep at home are mammalian and the generally have prostate glands similar in design and function to that which is found in the human reproductive system. As a result understanding them might not be too much of a problem, and treating them might also be easier.

The prostate gland is a chestnut-shaped male organ located next to the bladder and surrounding the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the penis, known as the urethra. The prostate gland produces the prostate fluid which makes up most of the liquid part of the semen discharged during orgasm; the gland is composed of glandular tissue that produces prostate fluid, and muscle tissue that helps in male ejaculation; and the fluid produced by the organ also keeps the sperm healthy and lively, increasing the chances of fertilization.

Equine prostate problems are generally similar to those of human beings, being an enlarged prostate (from BPH), prostate cancer, and both forms of proctitis. An enlarged prostate also often results from the natural aging process, which is more or less inevitable anyhow. And they are treated in similar manner too, especially in more mature dogs over the age of 8 years old.

In case of prostate enlargement, the layer of tissue surrounding the prostate ceases to expand, causing the gland to press against the urethra like a clamp, the bladder wall becoming thicker and beginning to contract even when there are little amounts of urine. The result of this is more frequent urination. Do not worry so much about your cats; they don’t often get this kind of condition, although several larger mammal pets do.

In maintaining the prostate health of your pet, diet and exercise are your best bet. It is possible in fact, considering that cats are always so active (except when they are not), that it is what they eat ? a protein diet ? and the activity that they get from running around the way they do that keeps them healthy. A horse would usually love to get around a bit too, and certainly a dog will be excited about going on a run with you or by itself.

So, you need a meal plan that will ensure adequate intake of essential fatty acids to get your pet going because these things are important for organ functioning. You might want to avoid fatty meats, excess salt, and hydrogenated oil, while you also get the pet some serious physical exercise to support good circulation and help promote blood flow to all organs of the body, including the prostate. There are medications you can get to help to, but it hardly gets better than that. So, how about you speak with your veterinarian doctor already about how to make it work for you?
