Particles in the Urine in Cats




If your cat has become dehydrated as a result of this condition, it will be hospitalized and rehydrated intravenously; otherwise, your veterinarian will most likely recommend a normal diet and exercise.


Living and Management


Unless your cat is dehydrated and must stay in hospital, you will feed and treat it as you normally do. However, you will need to follow a check-up regimen as directed by your doctor. There are many things that can lead to cylindruria, most of them serious, so it is important to follow your doctor’s directions for providing the care your cat needs to recover.
