Frequent urination cats

Common Questions and Answers about Frequent urination cats


Just curious, if the ultrasound for an ovarian cyst comes back positive do you know if there is anything that they can do to stop the bladder pressure/frequent urination? Have you talked with your GYN or urologist about what (if any) treatments exist for the cysts? Thanks.
Hill's Rx SD, raw food, etc--he churns out crystals. Consequently, he has frequent bladder inflammation and extremely painful urination. He is experiencing that now--for the past three days he has been urinating in tiny, bloody drops, always accompanied by a LONG and uncomfortable-appearing squat. The poor little guy! How can I relieve his inflammation? I believe in alternative medicine and periodically I dose him with homeopathic Cantharis.
FUS is just a catch all term for any type of urinary track issue and includes anything from urinary track infection (very common in adult male cats) to bladder or kidney stones. Increased thirst (a good thing) and decreased and painful urination are typical symptoms. The change in diet is to lower ash and magnesium which affects pH and exacerbate urinary track infections. The chemical smell may be from a build up of these chemicals that he is now excreting.
She drinks plenty of water and eats Flint River Ranch light dry food for older cats. However, after she urinates (what looks like a decent stream), she gets back into the litter box several times within minutes acting like she still wants to urinate, but she's already emptied. We thought she had a blockage when it first appeared a few weeks ago and took her to the vet who prescribed antibiotics.
The signs of blood, straining and frequent urination together or alone are considered lower urinary tract (LUT) signs and in cats they are spoken of as "FLUTD", feline lower urinary tract disease. In a female urinary obstruction by debris or crystals is rare so the real issue is discomfort. See your doctor for a diagnosis. They will want to obtain a urinary sample. Cage your cat overnight without a litter pan and before a morning visit and the bladder will be full for sampling.
I do urinate more often than usually and experience pain during sexual intercourse, but I am not sure if I have IC. I know there are many other medical problems that exhibit symptoms that i am experiencing. I do have allergies and is currently taking allergy shots. I am allergic to cheese, cats, nuts, dust mites and a variety of grass. I have been on birth control for three years. Can these cause the symptoms that I am experiencing?
// frequent urination is normal, but not blood tinged. nor are the unequal pupils. I would definitely take him back to his Vet or at least call them with an update to what is happening.
The signs of it are frequent urination, urination in unusual places, and sometimes urine with blood in it. Don't worry if Greta is obnoxious at the vets!!! =D Trust me, vets are used to evil kitties!! Just warn them ahead of time, and they will get some vet techs to help handle your kitty. Good luck!
I heard that some hidden symptoms of allergies can be depression, diarehha, frequent urination and other symptoms I have been experiencing. I don't know whether I should treat those things separately or try to figure out if it's allergies first. How do I go about doing that? What sort of drugs are there out there for me? I have found Reactin to be useless, as well as a lot of other store brand allergy "relief" drugs. Can my allergies get worse if I don't treat them?
Blood tests were normal range except for deydration. He spent 2 days at vet on IV and antibiotics. Urination not frequent, received enema. Pain seems to be near tail area. He will eat some dry food and is drinking water, but had to sit him in warm water to urge him to go to litter box. Looks alert but then sleeps. He was given a dose of Ponazuril (he is 16 lbs) when exposed to coccidia and stopped eating a couple of days later.
I agree thyroid issues could be a problem, as well as kidney problems. With diabetes, you'd be seeing symptoms like frequent urination, drinking and eating more than usual. Bottom line, don't freak yourself out, yet. It's much better to know what's going on early so you can treat it. You're doing the right thing by getting him checked over. Hang in there!!
This helps the joints and bladder. 2. Cranberry for cats.(there are many chewable brands available over the counter that cats find palatable) 3. All canned, grain free diet. Never give dry food except as a snack! 4. Try to get the cat to increase drinking by getting a cat water fountain (the porcelain kind is best), or by supplying bowls of clam juice and/or broths in addition to fresh water. 5. Have frequent urinalyses performed. 8.
If it's normal for elderly cats that are sick, then we will accommodate him. Thank you for any direction.

Beau's been diagnosed with idiopathic cystitis, an irritation of the bladder lining which causes frequent urination and voiding of small amounts of urine. Causes unknown, but risk factors include stress of any kind and indoor only lifestyle. Young male cats and overweight male cats are most at risk. There's no cure for the irritation which generally resolves within 3-7 days. He's on Meloxicam , a nonsteroidal antinflammatory liquid medication that's all ready in little daily syringes.
It is a tricyclic antidepressant and therefore takes a couple of weeks to become completely effective for inappropriate urination. Amitriptyline does not usually cause a fever or other symptoms you have described. Expressing the bladder is applying pressure to the bladder with the hand until the urine is squeezed out.
I am also a diabetic of 11 years and can tell you from personal experience high sugars can cause you to crave food weight loss/weight gain and frequent urination along with the sudden need to go.
Look for other symptoms as well such as changes in eating and drinking patterns, less frequent urination, excessive licking in the genital area, etc. Worrying about how to break behavioral issues until the physical and environmental factors that could be causing this have been eliminated is probably not productive.
Her symtoms include, increased thirst and urination, frequent bouts with urinary tract infections and some skin infections. Abnormal lab values have included increased Alk Phos, increased cholesterol, increased blood sugar and mildly elevated WBCs Her current course of treatment has been trilostane, starting out at a very low dose of 5mg/BID and closely checking her ACTH levels every 7 days (ACTH STIM TEST).
minor ear pain when swimming - allergies to cats, dander, pollen - mild asthma associated with allergies - often dehydrated - frequent urination I've been tested for a number of things (can share the results of bloodwork) and appear to be very healthy other than the things shown above. Any thoughts? Thanks!!
It got worse at the end, where I did pee on myself a bit, right before I would get to the toilet, which never had happened to me in my entire life. As soon as my Tx ended, the frequent urination did also. The meds are excreted when we go to the bathroom, so they may also be a slight irritant, to the bladder, which would cause more trips.
Seems like symptoms that were gone for a while (worsening of fat loss,fatigue, frequent urination anxiety, depression, cold hands and feet) are getting worse again. When I started Bicillin LA (2.4mu) in November, I felt so much better. But for unknown reasons, the shots seem to have lost impact, and now I am down to 1.2 MU twice a week. Not sure if I should go back up to 2.4 or stop totally.
1) heartburn 2) nausea (have had for 32 weeks) 3) back pain 4) pelvic pressure 5) not being able to sleep 3 weeks 1 day left or 22 days left tell my csection at 36 weeks.
He does not seem to be getting any better, in fact, he seems worse with a recent bloody red rectal area (which I cleared up) but now the fur around his urethral area is always noticeably wet, he's drinking lots of water, frequent urination and constantly cleaning the area. I know this may be a long and arduous note to get through, but I am at my breaking point.
It increases thirst which leads to increased water intake which, in turn, leads to frequent urination. The problem with steroid therapy is that once you start it, you cannot just stop it, you have to wean them from the steroids. The reason for this is because, as I explained above, the steroids set up a false immune system for the patient, and if you stop giving them suddenly, his own immune system will basically be nonexistent since it will have been rendered dormant by the steroids.
I have Restless Leg Syndrome, so I know about chronic sleep issues; Fluffy is a small part. I also have chronic pain, frequent urination, and so on. Luckily Lyrica mostly takes care of the RLS. I'll have to think of a calm way to approach this with my roommate. I know she was trying to help, and hoping that I don't have MS or Sjogren's or anything that can't be easily taken away. It was just upsetting when I was tired and upset with my neuro.
Hello, my cat is not sick yet, it is a female of 19yo or more (found in September 1991), and she has 23,3mg/L of CREA (<24), so still not kidney, but my two other cats dyed of kidney with CREA that went up very fast. Veterinary prescribed Fortekor 2.5 one by day for prevention. Her Urea is normal, although she had drink and eat before blood test, it is 0,524g/L. But she drinks a lot: each time she awakes up she wants food and water.
things so I know that is one thing that will be done tomorrow along with the retesting of her elevated levels. She had some issues with frequent urination about 6 months ago and her UA was sent off for a culture and it came back with no bacterial growth, thyroid testing, normal, Blood glucose, normal, last UA showed no infection, blood panel, with the exception of her bun, creatine, WBC, Eosinophils and rbc, everything else was in normal range.
Renal failure usually is not caught till the cat starts showing symptoms like Excessive water intake, frequent urination, vomiting, constipation, Diarrhea, loss of appetite, etc. Sometimes if a cat is dehydrated or has an infection their bun and creatine levels can go up and then come down after treatment.. That's all I know, I also am not a vet but a pet owner who has also lost one of her cats due to a four year battle with CRF...
