How To Treat A Cat Uti


“Feline lower urinary tract disease, also called FLUTD, is a common disorder that affects the bladder and urethra of cats. One of the most common conditions associated with FLUTD is a urinary tract infection (UTI), which can be detected when bacteria is found in your cat’s urine. Symptoms include blood in urine, straining to urinate, urinating outside the litter box or incomplete emptying of the bladder. Because these symptoms are similar to other problems like bladder stones and tumors, it’s important to have your cat examined by a veterinarian for diagnosis and treatment.”

Give your cat lots of water.

  • Give your cat lots of water.
  • If your cat is not drinking enough water, you can try a flavored electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte or Gatorade. These are available at most pharmacies and grocery stores, in both liquid and powder form. You can also make your own by adding a teaspoon of sugar or honey to half an 8-ounce glass of warm water; this might appeal more to the cat than straight up bottled water!
  • Increase their intake gradually over several days until they reach the recommended amount (which varies by age).

Increase the amount of fresh food you feed your cat.

The first thing you can do is to increase the amount of fresh food you feed your cat. Ideally, aim for raw food that has a high water content and fiber content.

For example, a good cat food brand to try is Pet Botanics dry or canned wet food (available at Petsmart). The brand focuses on natural ingredients and using plant-based proteins instead of animal-derived ones like most other companies do. If you cannot find this brand in your local store, then just make sure that the type of kibble you choose has oats as one of its ingredients (oatmeal is very good for cats).

Monitor your cat’s urination.

  • Monitor your cat’s urination. If the cat is urinating more frequently and in unusual places, it could be a sign of a UTI. If the cat has been urinating more frequently lately, but its urine is clear or only slightly discolored and there aren’t any other symptoms, it may just be that he or she is drinking more water and you can rule out UTI as the cause.

Bring your cat to a veterinarian if the problem is severe.

If the UTI is severe, you should bring your cat to a veterinarian. The vet will examine your cat and determine the best course of action for treatment. They may recommend antibiotics and dietary changes, depending on what they find during their examination.

Cat UTIs are usually not serious and can be treated by increasing water intake, improving nutrition and monitoring the cat’s health.

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is an infection of the urinary tract. UTIs are common in cats and not serious, but they can be painful and uncomfortable for your cat.

If you notice your cat urinating more often than usual, straining to urinate or making frequent visits to the litter box with little or no output, he could have a UTI. These signs may also be present if his litter box habits suddenly change from normal behavior or you see blood in his urine. If he seems lethargic, has a fever or appears to be in pain when trying to pass urine, take him immediately to the veterinarian for medical attention.


If you think your cat has a UTI, schedule an appointment with a veterinarian to get the proper diagnosis. In the meantime, try to limit your cat’s stress and anxiety. The vet will be able to help get your cat the treatment it needs.

And that’s it! You now know how to treat a cat uti.
