Cat and Kitten Health Updates, Advice and Tips from Devoted Vets

New!  Scientific Professional Cat Litter - The Convinient Way To Monitor Your Cat's Urinary Health:

FLUTD is one of the most common recurring health problems among domestic cats.

What is FLUTD?

FLUTD stands for feline lower urinary tract disease, this includes infections, bladder stones, and importantly crystals which bind together to form urinary plugs. THe formation of crystals, stones and plugs is one of the most common causes of urinary issues in cats.  The crystals or plugs are made of magnesium & ammonium phosphate, and are called "struvite". They form in the cat's bladder and can accumulate, causing urinary blockages and inflammation. Because the urinary passage in male cats is very fine, this can be a potentially life threatening condition, with the bladder massively filled, and the poor cat unable to urinate or rid itself of urinary wastes. Shock and death can follow. Those cats which have already been treated for FLUTD are very susceptible to it occuring again.

How can I monitor my cat to ensure it's not at risk?

Scientific Professional Cat Litter with Early Warning for FLUTD is a special cat litter designed to change colour when there is cause for concern in your cat's urine. This allows easy detection of urinary tract imbalances that can cause these severe conditions.

How does Scientific Cat Litter work?

The less acidic a cat's urine, (or the more alkaline), the more susceptible it is to forming struvite crystals in the urinary tract. Struvite crystals which are the most common type found in urine, and form most frequently when the pH measures 6.6 or above. The litter changes from light pink to magenta. The darker the litter, the more serious the problem.

What other signs will I notice if my cat has a urinary tract problem?

* Urinating frequently, or has problems urinating, or continues to strain after urinating or trying to urinate.

*Adopts the urinating position but can't urinate.

* Changes from usual litter box habits.

* Leaves blood or blood-tinged urine in the litter box, or in other places.

* Becomes unwell, has reduced appetite, and looks distressed or depressed.
