My cat keeps getting a urinary track infection.?
My cat is six years old and three years ago he got a urinary track infection and then he got one last month now it looks like he is getting another. I can not afford to take him back to the vet. Also he is a indoor cat. Is there anything I can give him so he will get well without taking him to the vet? Thank you
He must go to the vet to get rid of the infection.
However there are things you can do to try and reduce his risk in future. What food do you give him? He may need to stay on a veterinary prescribed food for quite a long time to help sort him out.
If you are feeding him dry food, do give him some wet food as well as his water consumption may be poor.
You can buy cat water fountains which improve the cats water consumption greatly and make them less susceptible to urinary infections.
You could also look for a food that has d-mannose extract in it as this can help to reduce the risk of infections.
Hope your kitty gets over this problem and one other tip, look into insurance if you find the vets bills extreme.
