What Every Cat Owner Needs To Know About Cat Bladder Stones

Has this ever happened to you?  You find your cat in his litter box, straining to urinate, crying out in pain.  He can’t seem to pass any urine.Your vet tells you that your cat’s urinary problems are caused by cat bladder stones.

Bladder Stones In Cats

A bladder stone, or urolith, is made up from minerals present in your cat’s urine.  These minerals sometimes form crystals that stick together to form a stone in your cat’s bladder.Bladder stones can vary in size, from grains of sand to small pebbles.

Your feline friend may have only one stone, or he could have several dozen.

Why do the minerals form crystals?  There are several theories.  Your cat’s urine may be high in minerals due to his diet, or it may be because he has an infection in his bladder.

Cat bladder stones usually take several months to form, but they can grow in just a couple of weeks.

Symptoms Of Cat Urinary Problems

If your cat suddenly starts urinating in places other than his litter box, this can indicate that he’s having a urinary problem.  You may notice him licking his bottom more than usual, too.

Blood in the urine is another symptom to watch for.  It can sometimes be hard to see this in cats as they usually go in the litter box.  But if he’s urinating outside his box, you may see it.

If your cat is straining to urinate, or can’t pass any urine, this indicates a blockage.  A urinary blockage is a veterinary emergency, and you need to get your cat to the vet as soon as possible.

Treatment For Cat Bladder Stones

Tests that are needed to verify that the problem is bladder stones include x-rays or an ultrasound.  Once they are diagnosed, you vet will probably outline two treatment options.

An operation to remove the stones is one treatment option.An operation is the quickest way to solve the problem of a blockage.

The second is to try to dissolve the stones with a special diet.Unless the stones are causing blockages, this can be a good treatment option for most cats.  However, it may not work well for all felines.  The major reason is that it’s a slower treatment.  It can take several weeks or months for the stones to dissolve.  During this time your cat will still be passing bloody urine, and may still be straining to urinate.

Diet therapy doesn’t work with all stones.  It’s helpful if the cat passes a stone so that you vet can analyze it to see what it’s made of.  Some types of stones can’t be dissolved.

Some cats won’t eat the special diet food.Unfortunately, unless it’s the only thing your cat is eating, it’s not effective.

Are Herbal Pet Remedies The Answer To Cat Bladder Stones?

Many kitty owners are turning to herbal pet remedies to help solve cat urinary problems.  These herbal and homeopathic remedies have been used by people across the world for centuries.Instead of just treating the symptoms, natural remedies help to correct the underlying problem.

It’s very important to buy these herbal pet remedies only from reputable companies that specialize in producing them.  Do your homework and be sure that the company stands behind its products.  You want to be sure that you find remedies especially formulated for pets.

These natural remedies are inexpensive and readily available.Side effects aren’t a concern when using these proven remedies.

Now that you have this information, you can take action to prevent cat bladder stones.
