There are ways to ward off UTI’s in cats and dogs! Preventative methods do work! Holistic Pet Cuisine where nutrition is key!

This is a preventative blog on UTI’s as well as what signs to look for in your cat or dog.

At the first signs of any distress contact your veterinarian.

DRY FOOD has no moisture in it and is not the ideal diet for a cat.

The following are ways to ward off UTI’S in cats!

The most common cause of cat UTI is urolithiasis, the formation of stones in the urinary tract. The most common stone seen in feline urinary tract, struvite, is made up of minerals like magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate. The acidic and alkaline properties of these minerals disturb the pH level in cat’s urine, which in turn results in formation of struvite stones.

Urine pH is also influenced by the proteins present in diet and excessive intake of fish and meat can increase acidity. Cat foods that contain rich plant protein such as soybean meal can make urine more alkaline than required. Check your labels for added soybean meal. Nothing at Holistic Pet Cuisine has soybean in the panel of ingredients. If your cat’s diet contains more than the required quantity of magnesium, ammonium, and phosphate, it can lead to formation of urinary stones, or uroliths. When the diet contains more magnesium than is required to maintain body functions, the extra magnesium is passed on to the urine.

The cause of urinary tract infections can be bacterial, fungal, or viral infection, urethral obstruction, or uroliths aka bladder stones.

Homeopathic remedies for urinary tract infections in dogs and cats are accessible and affordable. They can be highly beneficial as preventive treatment also.

Does your cat or dog have some common symptoms?

Pain while urinating, frequent urination, small or no urine at all, are among the first signs to look for.

Excessive grooming of genitals,  possible blood in urine are almost certain symptom of urinary infection in cats and dogs.

If your cat has stopped using its litter box and urinates outside of it then keep a close eye on your cat.

Always make sure that your cat always has access to fresh, clean water.
