Urethral Obstruction in Cats


During and immediately after the dissolution process, you may be asked to monitor your cat’s urine pH at home or to bring in a urine specimen to be checked for struvite crystals under the microscope.

For those plugs or stones that consist of nonstruvite compounds, such as calcium oxalate, there are also diets that will be of some assistance to prevent recurrence. These include Eukanuba Moderate pH O, Purina UR St/Ox, and Royal Canin SO 30.

No matter what type of urolith is present, surgery may be the best option for your cat, especially if the obstruction cannot be resolved. Your veterinarian will discuss the options with you.
