In case of underlying urinary infections, your cat’s veterinarian will prescribe antibiotics to treat such infections. The cat will also require surgery to reposition the displaced bladder and urethra. On occasion, antidepressants are used to calm the animal.
You may need to visit your pet’s veterinarian for follow-up examinations to evaluate progress of treatment and identify possible complications. In case of urinary infections, regular antibiotic medication is often required until the infection subsides. Watch your cat for untoward symptoms and call your veterinarian immediately if anything unusual arises. Your veterinarian will also brief you about the side-effects of medications commonly used in these cases.
