Q. My 5 month old kitten dx with capillarlia parasites after bringing stool sample came home to pee on chair started paracur yesterday is this normal
DR. CHRISTIE LONG, D.V.M., C.V.A.
A. Capillaria has been known to cause urinary incontinence in dogs, but I can't find any references to suggest that there's a direct association between the two in cats. However, I wouldn't be surprised if the incontinence was related to the parasites. Definitely follow up with your vet on a second stool sample after treatment is completed to ensure that the parasites have resolved, and if the incontinence occurs after treatment is complete follow up on that as well.
