Abnormal Urine Outflow Due to Urinary Bladder Dysfunction in Cats

Treatment

 

The course of treatment will ultimately depend on the underlying cause of vesicourachal diverticula. Cats that do not respond to conventional treatment may require surgery to correct the defect.

 

Living and Management

 

You will need to visit the veterinarian for regular follow-up exams, where he or she will take urine samples to evaluate the status of infection. Some animals will require long-term antibiotic therapy to combat urinary tract infections. However, overall prognosis in cats with vesicourachal diverticula is good after treatment.
