Lack of Bladder Control in Cats

Lack of bladder control is referred to as urinary incontinence and is a term used to describe a portion of the lower urinary system failing to operate adequately.

The urinary system is controlled by nerve receptors, smooth muscles, and pressure from inside the bladder.

When the urinary system is compromised by an infection, bladder stone, mass, or hormones, the feline will strain to control urinary leakage.

The feline will often urinate at inappropriate times and the skin around the elimination organs will develop a rash from the highly acidic urine soaking his/her fur.

Lack of bladder control in cats can be frustrating for cat owners, but more importantly, will cause your cat a great deal of distress and must be addressed by a veterinary professional.

If your cat is having a difficult time making it to the litter box, dribbles urine, or leaves puddles around the home, she could be suffering from a lack of bladder control.

Lack of bladder control in cats is a medical condition resulting from underlying issues that are causing the feline to lose control of her bladder muscles.

The bladder is a hollow organ that stores filtered waste until it has reached full capacity.

Once the bladder is full, the muscle contracts, sending messages to the brain, which gives the cat the “urge” to urinate.

In a cat with a healthy bladder, the feline can control the sphincter muscles until the appropriate time and location.

However, elderly cats, cats that have given birth, and those with underlying disease or infection, may no longer have full control of these muscles.
