The average age of onset of cat’s lower urinary tract disease is only 4 years old! And it is common between indoor cats that are “young or middle-aged, drink less water, and become fat”. Cats in Hong Kong seem to be at high risk!
And the symptoms of cat’s lower urinary tract disease often appear suddenly. If a cat has a lower urinary tract disease, it will not be able to successfully discharge urine out of the body, which will cause uremia in the cat, vomiting, and hunger strike and even death!
Lower urinary tract diseases have the following symptoms:
Often walk near the sandbox
Painful urination or crying
Frequent licking of the lower body
