Lack of Bladder Control in Cats



If the condition can be treated with medication, there are several options available. For example, incontinence caused by obesity will require a weight management and diet plan; antibiotics may be used if the incontinence is due to inflammation of the urinary tract or bladder.


For serious medical cases, surgery may be performed to remove a bladder or tract obstruction, or for reparation of the bladder or urinary tract.


Living and Management


Most cats suffering from incontinence will respond well to medications and will have a full recovery. Inflammation is one of the most common issues associated with this medical condition, but it, too, can be treated with topical ointments and antibiotics.




There are currently no known preventative measures for this medical condition.
