Help! My cat of 4yrs is having urinating issues!
An_240941 posted:
My male cat is almost 4 yrs old and he was spayed in the first yr that we got him. He is our only pet and my kids love him and he loves them.

Anyway, he recently started going pee at least 4 times an hr and only small amounts at a time and if I don't get his box cleaned fast enough for him he pees on blankets and rugs! He has never done this stuff before! I don't know what's wrong with him and I'm concerned. Any advice please? Anyone know what may be wrong? My mother in law said maybe it' a UTI?
An_243534 responded:
Get him to the vet. He may have a urinary tract infection or blockage.
Drew Weigner, DVM, ABVP responded:
You're describing typical signs of cystitis, an inflammation of the urinary bladder. Common causes include bladder stones (sometimes called "crystals"), infections, tumors, etc. He needs to see your veterinarian as soon as possible as some of these diseases can cause a urinary blockage, which can be fatal. Fortunately, most of these diseases are easy to treat if caught in time.

Thank you for your time and help. I did take him to the vet and he had a urinary infection. He was given a shot of fluids under the skin to rehydrate him and he is on amoxicillian. He is doing much better now. Thank you for the concern.

To keep this from happening again in the future you might want to try the special urinary treatment catfood for a while. That's worked wonders with my mom's cat's.
