Cat's bladder health affected by FLUTD

Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) is a general term and includes for example urinary stones and other causes of bladder irritation.

FLUTD does include urinary tract infections but only seldom. If you see blood in your cat's urine, it is most probably a sign of FLUTD, bladder stones or a urethral plug — not an infection. In dogs, blood in the urine often is a sign of an infection, but this is rarely the case in young to middle aged cats.

Sometimes FLUTD is caused by bladder stones. Struvite and calcium oxalate stones are common stone types.

Struvite crystals in your cat’s urine can combine with mucous and form a urethral plug. The urethra is a tube that carries urine from the bladder and out of the body.

If your cat is not peeing freely, a urinary blockage may be the cause. Contact your vet immediately as this condition is urgent and could be fatal if not treated.
