Urinary Problems And Your Pet’s Cat Health Care

Urinary problems are a major cause of cat health care problems. Some illnesses, undesirable behaviours and diseases that we see most often in our feline friends are related to urinary problems. The more serious urinary problems in cats include Cystitis, or Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease, spraying and renal failure.

Cystitis and FLUTD are umbrella terms used to describe the cat health care problem of inflammation in the urinary bladder. The symptoms include irritation and inflammation affecting urination, an increase in the frequency of urination and the urgency of it, general difficulty urinating and evidence of blood in the urine. The causes and triggers of this cat health care problem are varied but this problem is often triggered when food causes urinary crystals to form bladder stones. Furthermore, overweight cats are commonly affected because they are more prone to developing cat health care problems generally. This problem can be easily treated by a vet.

Spraying, on the other hand, is more often thought of as a problematic behaviour than a cat health care issue. When male cats are eight or nine months old they will become more territorial and exhibit new behaviours. He will begin spraying strong smelling urine around your house to mark his territory. It can be very hard to get rid of the smell. This behaviour goes hand in hand with other typical male cat behaviour such as fighting, which can lead to cat health care problems, so it advisable to have a male cat neutered before this age to avoid these problems.

Renal disease is a cat health care problem which is particularly prevalent in middle aged and older cats. This is partly because of the way cats’ kidneys work so hard because of the concentration of their urine and the infrequency with which they pass urine. It is therefore not uncommon for the kidneys of older cats to begin to fail. Renal failure causes cats to drink and urinate more and in serious cases, vomiting bile, appearing disorientated and losing weight are not uncommon. The causes of this particular cat health care problem can also be varied, including cancer, infections, ingestion of toxins or, sadly, old age.
