Sometimes, urinary tract conditions can be associated with other diseases, including chronic kidney disease and hyperthyroidism.
However, in many cases, there doesn’t seem to be an underlying cause at all in this case, the technical diagnosis would be “feline idiopathic cystitis” (FIC).
Feline lower urinary tract disease, or FLUTD, is the umbrella term for urinary tract conditions in cats.
A feline urinary tract infection (UTI) is typically characterized by painful and difficult urination.
Urinary tract infections in cats can range from severe to fatal, so it is important that you consult a vet right away if you suspect your cat is suffering from a UTI.
