Here is some information for all Cat owners.
FLUTD (feline lower urinary tract disease) is one of the most common diseases among cats.
When cats get FLUTD, crystals and stones form that irritate and even obstruct their urinary tract making it very
painful or impossible for them to urinate. When this happens, you may notice them urinating more frequently - often outside of the litter box, straining to urinate, crying out when they urinate or even having blood in their urine.
No one knows exactly why cats develop FLUTD, but many vets believe it has a lot to do with their diet. Because of
that, vets also believe there certain things you can feed your cat that may help:
Canned Food - Since they are normally wet, they may help with keeping your cat hydrated and dilute the urine.
Water - Good hydration also helps prevent the formation of crystals. Encourage your cat to drink even more by placing bowls in different places throughout the house and topping off the water bowl. This often encourages cats to drink.
Foods made especially for cats suffering with FLUTD - these foods usually contain ingredients that promote
good bladder health.
