Q. My cat has been dx with struvite crystals and was given an antibiotic injection. She seemed fine for about a month and now she is urinating more often

Answered By

A. Frequent urination is often related to cystitis. I would suggest you to try and catch a urine sample (you can use special litter that doesn't absorb urine) and take it with your cat to your vets. Your vet may put her on special diet if she still has a lot of crystals in her urine.
