What to know about cat urinary health

Learn how to spot, prevent, and treat urinary issues in your cat.

What are the symptoms of urinary problems in cats?

Common symptoms of urinary problems in cats include crying while urinating, frequent urination, blood in the urine, peeing outside the litter box, and small amounts of urine. If you notice any of these issues, you should talk to a vet as soon as possible. Some urinary issues, like urethral obstructions, can be life-threatening conditions.

What can cause urinary issues in cats?

Cat urinary problems can be caused by a number of things, including diet, injuries, birth defects, and bacterial infections (aka urinary tract infections or UTIs). Medical conditions, such as hyperthyroidism or diabetes, are other possible causes of urinary issues. If your cat is stressed or anxious, they may pee outside the litter box. Stress and anxiety can also lead to Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) which causes them to strain to urinate and can be painful.

Can you prevent urinary problems in cats?

Yes, some urinary problems are preventable. Make sure your cat gets plenty of water — hydration is very important for urinary health. You can also talk to one of our licensed veterinarians online about dietary changes and ways to reduce your cat’s stress that can help prevent urinary issues.

How can I help my cat with urinary problems?

If your cat is experiencing urinary problems, the best thing you can do is to have them evaluated by a vet. Cat urinary problems don’t typically resolve on their own and some can be fatal if left untreated. Any cat that isn’t producing much or any urine needs to be seen by an in-person veterinarian immediately. Your cat may need a prescription medication or surgery to get better.
