Hello community today I want to talk to you about urinary problems in cats and how I heard about them.

Mr. Cat

In 2016 disappeared the Cat food from the shelves in Venezuela, for me who at that time had no idea how to prepare food at home was a real problem and I made a huge mistake I fed Dog Food to Mr. Cat believing it was the same, there began the Calvary of Mr. Cat.

In less than two months, Mr. Cat was obstructed and unable to urinate and like every emergency, he was from Saturday to Sunday and without a penny in his pocket.

Thank God I was able to take him to the vet and there they managed to drain him, they told me that the next day I had to go for an echo. This was only the beginning, for two years Mr. Cat was obstructed three or four times and in 2017 I thought I would lose him, he was very, very bad and I did not have the resources to pay for veterinary visits, nor everything that comes with them.

Hematology of Mr. Cat

Mr.Cat was never probed between not having the resources to pay for a catheter and when I had the economic help to do it, I asked that they only drain it because in my opinion that catheter hurts them more, this is my very personal opinion.

Mr. Cat's blood chemistry

Now, what produces or causes these urinary problems, I had to read the diagnosis and I found the following in the specific case of Mr. Cat his problem is urinary, only non renal urinary, (there are cats that can suffer from both) and specifically the crystals he produces are Struvite crystals that can be caused or produced by excessively alkaline urine, PH of seven (7) onwards, these urinary problems are the result of an inadequate feeding, with many carbohydrates, grains and synthetic supplements, some of them rich in starch that do not help at all to improve the PH of the urine, another factor extremely important and that usually is the cause of these conditions is the stress, the castration of the male cats, age, weight, among others.

It is very, very important that all the tests are made to determine if the problem is only urinary, or if it is urinary and renal, if it is a cystitis, what type of crystals or stones is forming the cat all that with the purpose of prescribing the medicines adapted to each case and to avoid resistance to the antibiotics.

Now let's talk about symptoms that may indicate that something is not right with your cat

鉃★笍 Presence of Blood in the urine.

鉃★笍 Increased frequency of urination.

鉃★笍 Painful urination.

鉃★笍 Difficulty urinating.

鉃★笍 Urinating outside the sandbox.

If you notice any of these symptoms take your cat to the vet, some cats do well out of these situations, but some simply don't tell, cats decompensate extremely quickly.

There are several types of urinary problems

1锔忊儯 Cystitis: is inflammation of the bladder.

2锔忊儯 Crystals or stones of struvite and oxalate: formation of crystals and stones that appear in different parts of the unitary tract.

3锔忊儯 Struvite plugs: is the urinary obstruction that does not allow the cat to urinate. In view of this it is very impotent to take your cat immediately to the vet.

Now you may wonder what solutions or help there are to a urinary tract infection? In the case of Mr. Cat changed his diet to food prepared at home that helps him to consume liquids, in addition the veterinarian indicated that to eat catarina it must be specifically for urinary problems, several exist in the market, they prescribed him vitamin C for life to help in the process of acidifying the PH of the urine, As his obstructions were so recurrent, he was operated on, and was given a surgery called Feline Urethrestomy, to avoid obstructions, in addition to homeopathic drops for cystitis, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory, if a cystitis crisis occurs. The operation solved the obstructions but the condition is still there and must be treated to avoid infection.

In these cases it is very important to decrease the cat's stress levels, either by placing boxes for it to shelter, allowing it to take its time to adapt to new situations such as a new cat in the house, a move or meeting someone.

Los problemas Urinarios de Se帽or Gato 馃檧

Hola comunidad hoy les quiero hablar sobre los problemas urinarios en gatos y la manera como supe de ellos.

En 2016 la gatarina desaparec铆o de los anaqueles en Venezuela, para mi que en aquel momento no ten铆a ni idea de como preparar alimento en casa fue un verdadero problema y comet铆 un error garrafal le di de comer perrarina a Se帽or Gato creyendo que era lo mismo, all铆 comenz贸 el Calvario de Se帽or Gato.

En menos de dos meses Se帽or Gato se obstruyo y no lograba orinar y como toda emergencia se present贸 de un s谩bado para domingo y sin un centavo en el bolsillo.

Gracias a Dios lo pude llevar al veterinario y all铆 lograron drenarlo, me indicaron que al d铆a siguiente deb铆a asistir para un eco. Esto solo fue el comienzo, durante dos a帽os Se帽or Gato se obstruyo tres o cuatro veces y en 2017 cre铆 que lo perderia, estaba muy, muy mal y no contaba con los recursos para costear consultas m茅dicas veterinarias, ni todo lo que viene con ellas .

Se帽or Gato nunca fue sondeado entre que no ten铆a los recursos para pagar una sonda y cuando conte con la ayuda econ贸mica para hacerlo, ped铆 que s贸lo lo drenaran ya que en mi opini贸n esa sonda los lastima mas, esta es mi opini贸n muy personal.

Ahora bien, que producen o causan estos problemas urinarios, tuve que leer al conocer el diagn贸stico y encontr茅 lo siguiente en el caso espec铆fico de Se帽or Gato su problema es urinario, solo urinario no renal, (hay gatos que pueden sufrir de ambas) y especificamente los cristales que produce son Cristales de estruvita que puede ser causados o producidos por la orina excesivamente alcalina, PH de siete (7) en adelante, estos problemas urinarios son el resultado de una alimentaci贸n no adecuada, con muchos carbohidratos, granos y suplementos sint茅ticos, algunos de ellos ricos en almidon que no ayudan para nada a mejorar el PH de la orina , otro factor s煤mate importante y que suele ser causante de estas afecciones es el estres, la castraci贸n de los gatos machos, edad, peso, entre otros .

Es muy, pero muy importante que se realicen todos los ex谩menes para determinar si el problema es solo urinario, o si es urinario y renal, si es una cistitis, que tipo de Cristales o c谩lculos esta formando el gato todo eso con el prop贸sito de recetar los medicamentos adecuados a cada caso y evitar resistencia a los antibi贸ticos.

Ahora hablemos de s铆ntomas que te pueden indicar que algo no anda bien con tu gato
鉃★笍 Presencia de Sangre en la orina.
鉃★笍 Aumento de la frecuencia de orinar.
鉃★笍 Dolor al orinar.
鉃★笍 Dificultad al orinar.
鉃★笍 Orinar fuera del arenero.

Si observas alguno de estos s铆ntomas lleva a tu gato al veterinario, algunos gatos salen con bien de estas situaciones, pero algunos simplemente no la cuentan, los gatos se descompensan sumamente r谩pido.

Existen varios tipos de problemas urinarios
1锔忊儯 Cistitis.: es la inflamaci贸n de la vejiga.
2锔忊儯 Cristales o C谩lculos de estruvita y oxalato.: formaci贸n de cristales y c谩lculos que aparecen en diferentes partes del tracto unitario.
3锔忊儯 Tapones de Estruvita: es la obstrucci贸n urinaria que no permite al gato orinar. Ante esto es muy impotente que lleves a tu gato inmediatamente al veterinario.

Ahora te preguntaras 驴que soluciones o ayudas hay ante una infecci贸n urinaria? En el caso de Se帽or Gato se cambio su dieta a comida preparada en casa que lo ayude a consumir l铆quidos, ademas de ello el veterinario indic贸 que de comer gatarina debe ser espec铆ficamente para problemas urinarios, existen varias en el mercado, le recetaron vitamina C de por vida para ayudar en el proceso de acidificar el PH de la orina, al ser tan recurrentes sus obstrucciones fue operado, se le realiz贸 una intervenci贸n se nombre Uretrestomia Felina, para evitar obstrucciones, adem谩s de gotas homeopaticas para la cistitis, de antibi贸ticos y antiflamatorio, si se presenta una crisis de Cistitis. Ojo la operaci贸n soluciono las obstrucciones pero la condici贸n de sigue all铆 hay que tratarla para evitar infecciones.

Ante estos casos es muy importante disminuir los niveles de estr茅s del gato, ya sea colocando cajas para que se resguarde, permitiendo que tome su tiempo para adaptarse a nuevas situaci贸nes como un gato nuevo en casa, una mudanza o conocer a alguien.

Espero que esta informaci贸n les haya servido para orientarse y tomar previsiones para evitar que sus gatitos lleguen a padecer de problemas urinarios.
