Chemical Imbalance of Urine in Cats

Treatment

 

Treatment for the hyposthenuria will depend on the underlying disorder. Even if your cat is urinating excessively, or is having trouble making it to the litter box in time, do not restrict your cat's water intake unless it is appropriate to the definitive diagnosis and has been recommended by your veterinarian.

 

Living and Management

 

Your veterinarian will schedule follow-up visits to monitor your cat's urine specific gravity, hydration status, kidney function, and electrolyte balance. Dehydration is a possible complication with hyposthenuria, and can quickly become a life threatening condition, so care must be taken to ensure that your cat is properly hydrated at all times.
