What are other signs that my cat may have a urinary tract infection?

Posted by: admin  :  Category: urinary tract infection

I've posted a few questions about her inappropriate unination and a lot of the answers involved the fact that she may have a urinary tract infection. I'm scheduling an appointment for her to see the vet next week but I was curious if there were other signs I could look for.

The biggest sign is usually constant attempts to urinate but not much is coming out at a time.

Blood in the urine is a huge indicator and must be seen immediately…Could be a sign of UTI, bladder infection, crystals or stones…

Those are the big ones that I usually see…However, I would lean more towards a bladder infection or stones, rather than a UTI. UTI's are far more common in males than females. One of my guys had Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) which can easily be treated with a round of antibiotics and a change of diet. I've had no problems since then.

If you see any lethargy, lack of appetite or a refusal to move from a position, get your cat seen immediately. It is indicating that something really serious is happening such as a urinary blockage.

    Using her tray but not actually doing anything (my cat had and I noticed excess litter outside his tray and then realised something up)
    Possibly off food
    May be in pain from this
    When you say next week is that a week from now as they usually recommend a cat is seen quite prompt with a UTI as they can become quite poorly if they have to wait for treatment
    I had an appt within two days for my cat. I would check with your vet and try and get her seen asap.

    Mine was peeing on the couch and on clothes in the floor..She would go into the box very frequently and pee a small drop..I took her to the vet a week and a half ago and she gave me some liquid medicine..we finished that last Thursday and I took her back..The vet said she needed more medicine and that she saw some crystals 🙁 so now, she's on some tablets and the vet told me to change her food to Purina ..the one for Urinary Tract Care..so, I have to take her back to the vet next Monday..hopefully it'll be all cleared up.

    My cat had this a few years ago, so i know a little bit of what to look for.

    Most cats with the infection drink copious amounts of water. My cat hardly ate anything, but would go through two bowls of water before noon every day.

    Another sign is if her box is always dirty. If she doesn't eat, she will have to urinate several times a day, which results in the box becoming dirtied much quicker. And when the box is too dirty, your cat will find other places to go.

    I hope this helped!

    Your cat might only show one sign of a UTI:

    1. Making noises when urinating. (Which makes you think it hurts when it urinates.)
    2. Urinating outside the litterbox.
    3. Frequent trips to the litterbox with little urine coming out.
