Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease

Feline Urinary Tract Disease


Cat straining to urinate

Whatever it is called, FLUTD can cause bladder irritation that can sometimes be very severe. It is often provoked by stress. Male cats are at an especially high risk mucous plugs and mineral crystals can combine to cause a urethral blockage.

This is a true emergency as a blockage is a life-threatening event that will result in kidney failure if not treated. Blockage almost always happens in the males because of their anatomy. Cats will urinate frequently yet not pass very much urine if they have an infection or irritation. If your cat tries to urinate and can’t pass anything, or if you notice evidence of blood in the urine, it needs to be examined as soon as possible.
