Managing Your Cat’s Excessive Urination
You may notice your cat is urinating more often or the volume of urine has increased. She may even be urinating outside the litter box. Suspect your cat is having a urinary issue if you are mopping up urine or scooping the litter box significantly more often. Excessive urination can be stress-induced. Your cat may be disturbed by changes in the household. Thus she will urinate outside the box or urinate a lot. Your cat’s urine may become concentrated. In this case, there will be less urine or she may strain to urinate. Most cats that experience an increase in urination frequency or the volume of urine need medical attention. Your cat may have a urinary tract infection, bladder stones or a blockage, which are highly treatable. Or she could have kidney disease, diabetes or hyperthyroidism, which may need lifelong treatment. Make an appointment with your Savannah, GA veterinary clinic for evaluation and treatment.
