FLUTD, short for Feline Urinary Tract Disease, is a generalized term pertaining to a number of illnesses affecting a cat’s lower urinary system. No matter what the basic causes are, cats that have been afflicted with FLUTD exhibit the same symptomatic behaviors like frequently attempting to urinate but none or very little pee comes out, licking the butt excessively, behavioral changes, and obvious pain or discomfort when peeing. If your cat seems to be afflicted with FLUTD, immediately take your pet to the veterinarian so that the cat’s pee can be taken out immediately because pee is a metabolism process waste product. If a cat’s urinary system gets blocked by something like a plug or a crystal, then the inability of the cat to pass urine can lead to complications. Renal failure is a possible effect, as well as death.
Bring your cat immediately to the vet clinic Ellicott City, MD if you suspect FLUTD because of the symptoms your pet is displaying.The vet has to perform an examination to determine the root cause for proper corrective treatment.
