Vaccinating your cat can seem vague. What exactly are they being protected against? What is the risk to them if they aren't vaccinated?
We don't want any experience with your vet to seem unclear, so here are the main diseases that we can vaccinate against.
What is FLUTD?
Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) is an inflammatory condition of the bladder and/or urethra in cats.
This inflammation may be caused by urinary crystal formation, bacterial infection or (very rarely) cancer, but often a cause is never found. Inflammation in the urinary tract causes a variety of symptoms including increased frequency of urination, difficulty urinating, inappropriate urination (going outside the litterbox), blood in the urine, and vocalizing (crying or howling) when trying to urinate.
Feline lower urinary tract disease usually develops early in a cat’s life, and tends to cause episodes of urinary issues throughout their lifetime. Understanding some of the risk factors of FLUTD can help in managing this condition to prevent recurrence of urinary signs.
We've put together some of our knowledge into short articles to help keep your pet healthy.
