Out-of-place Urethral Lining in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

If there is inflammation or risk for infection, antibiotics are often prescribed prophylactically (preventively). In cases of extensive bleeding or pain, surgery will generally be recommended, but in many instances there is no need for treatment. Slowing your cat's physical activity to allow time for rest and healing is generally all that is required for the condition to pass.

 

Living and Management

 

The risk of recurrence is fairly high, so it is important that you observe any physical changes to the cat's genital area.

 

Prevention

 

Unfortunately, there are no preventive measures for urethral prolapse. If a cat shows a high likelihood of recurrence, neutering the animal may be your best option.
