The Causes. Diagnosis, Treatment. and Prevention of Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease

The Causes, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention Of Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease

In this presentation we are going to discuss a very common cat disease known as Feline Lower Urinary Tract disease. When your cat stops using the litter box one of the possible culprits is urinary tract disease. The 3 most important factors in the development of feline lower urinary tract disease are: a multiple cat household, feline emotional stress and feline environmental stress.

A urinary tract infection can result in a cat with urethral obstruction, a cat with urethral plugs, and a cat with urethral stones. Heart failure can be due to urethral obstruction in cats. There are drugs to restore bladder function in cats. Perineal urethrostomy in cats is a surgical procedure available for the treatment of frequent episodes of lower urinary tract disease. Feline Idiopathic cystitis is synonymous with Feline Interstitial Cystitis.
