Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a general term for illness related to urinary difficulties. It could be one of the causes of a class of illnesses named Feline Urinary Syndrome (FUS) or sometimes referred to as Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD). It is important to treat a urinary tract infection in cats before it turns into something more serious like urinary blockage.
Probable causes of a UTI in cats are:
Some recommendations for treatment:
We recommend our Natural Born Critters Kidney and Urinary Cleanse to treat urinary tract infections. It contains a blend of herbal extracts that will both flush out the urinary tract and treat and prevent infections. The blend of herbs include Usnea Lichen and Enchinacea for treating infection, Uva Ursi Leaf or Bearberry for relieving crystals and stones and Pipsissewa Herb for its diuretic properties.
If your cat is experiencing pain, your vet will probably prescribe NSAIDs to combat the pain. We recommend our natural alternative to NSAIDs, Pheny for Pain. Pheny for Pain uses a natural amino acid, l-phenylalanine, to alleviate pain naturally.
If your cat is incontinent, we have a special product to treat it. Incontinence Care contains a variety of herbs known to strengthen the urinary tract to stop unwanted leakage.
If you suspect your cat’s urinary issue are due to stress, use our Emotion Soothing Kit. It’s two supplements, Relaxation Drops and Herbal Calming supplement, are made with herbs that will relax your cat and provide more restful sleep.
Giving your cat the proper nutrients every day is probably the most important way to keep your cat healthy. We recommend our Natural Born Critters Daily Health Kit. It contains two supplements, Daily Multi-Vitamin and Daily Health Boost, which will ensure that your cat gets all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants they need every day.
