Causes and Treatment for Cats with Lower Urinary Tract Disease | Cimarron Animal Hospital
Having a cat as a pet comes with many benefits. They are low maintenance and can clean themselves, but are still lovable and loyal. Cat litter box training is relatively easy and most cats take to it within the first few weeks of their lives. What happens when your cat stops using the litter box? There are several reasons that can lead to a cat peeing outside the litter box. The most important thing to remember is that cat behavior problems are not an intentional, aggressive act on the part of your cat.
Just like people, cats get sick, too. And one of the most common ways a kitty gets sick — and luckily, one of the most treatable ways if you catch it early enough — is the dreaded FLUTD feline lower urinary tract disease. As with people, an FLUTD can cause a kitty a lot of pain and discomfort, but often can be quickly fixed with a dose of antibiotics.
Cats can have blood in their urine due to health issues like a urinary tract infection or urinary tract disease. If you notice a cat has blood in its urine, take it to the vet right away. The vet can then diagnose the issue and prescribe the necessary treatment. To treat a cat with blood in its urine, it's important that you take your cat to see a vet as soon as possible since bloody urine can be a sign of a serious medical condition. If your cat has an infection, give it the antibiotics that the vet prescribes.
