Painful and Frequent Urination in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Cats with less serious, nonobstructive lower urinary tract diseases are typically seen on an outpatient basis, while others require hospitalization.

 

Treatment mainly depends on the fundamental cause of the condition(s). If an illness has led to dysuria and/or pollakiuria, it will include supportive therapies, along with any medication needed to help with the symptoms. Nevertheless, these conditions often clear up rapidly after proper treatment has been prescribed and given.
