Your Cat’s Urinary Health
Urinary difficulties for cats are surprisingly common. Feeding wet food or adding water to dry food may help to maintain good urinary tract health. At Lily’s Kitchen, we recommend feeding wet food with a topping of dry, or having a bowl of dry food available for your cat to graze on throughout the day.
While some people may worry that a purely wet food diet could be too rich, our recipes are grain free, meat meal free and have no added sugars. They’re made with high quality ingredients and are nutritionally complete and balanced so ideal for every day feeding.
How Can You Tell if Your Cat has Urinary Tract Problems?
If your cat uses a litter tray, it’s much easier to notice changes in their behavior that could signal an unhealthy urinary tract. Either way, keep an eye out for things like:
- Your cat suddenly won’t use the litter box
- Your cat goes to the toilet much more frequently
- There may be blood in the urine
- Your cat starts urinating in odd places and not in the litter box
- Your cat is straining to go
If your cat has any of the above symptoms, you should take them to the vet straight away.
Supporting Your Cat’s Urinary Health
In the wild, cats get most of their moisture from their diet. Domestic cats aren't very good at drinking enough - they need lots of encouragement, so feeding a wet diet can really help.
If your cat suffers from cystitis, they need to get lots more moisture than usual so should only be fed good quality wet food. Lily's Kitchen wet cat food is high in moisture, free from grains, has high quality proteins and is low in magnesium compared to most dry diets.
Whatever problem you cat has, it’s important to see your vet if they show any symptoms of bladder or urinary tract problems so it can be properly diagnosed and treated.
