Mass Protrusion from the Vaginal Area in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment is typically done on an outpatient basis. If there is a protruding mass, it is important to keep the area clean and watch for problems urinating, as they are common. The recurrence rate of vaginal hyperplasia following treatment is high (66-100%).

 

Living and Management

 

If your cat is unable to urinate, this is a sign of a serious medical condition and should be treated immediately, as there may be complications with the cat's urethra.

 

Prevention

 

There are currently no prevention methods for this medical condition.
