Q. I have a Bristish Blue female and her urine smells like body odor! Why?

Answered By

A. Urine that has a strange odor to it, or is cloudy or bloody in appearance may indicate a possible infection or metabolic issue. Dehydrated cats may also have concentrated urine that is very strongly odored. It is best to bring in a sample of your cat's urine to your local vet to have it examined for the most common causes of urinary issues. If none are found, your vet may also recommend a checkup or bloodwork to check organ and metabolic function and look for underlying causes.
