The Best UTI or urinary tract infection treatment for cats starts with urinary tract health. How do you help your cat achieve a healthy bladder and kidneys? If your cat doesn't have kidney or bladder stones (struvite and oxalate) or an obstruction in the urethra, parasites or a metabolic illness, then it may be safe to assume the cause of urinary tract problems could be from diet.

Symptoms of a UTI appear rapidly with certain behaviors such as peeing often, not using the litter box (behavioral problems sometimes cause this), meowing as if in pain or not knowing what to do because of the discomfort, licking their urethral opening after trying to pee because it is irritated, drinking more water than usual, and sleeping more. Cats that don't feel well tend to hide or sleep continuously.

The best diet for cats and hence the best UTI treatment for your cat is to always make sure he or she has plenty of fresh water available at all times. The urinary system does the hard work of filtering out waste products and water flushes the "system" free of bacteria that virtually cling to the bladder walls and also helps your cat avoid dehydration, which further irritates the bladder. Cats should get most of their moisture from the food they eat; this is their natural diet from years of being in the wild.

Cats are meat eaters and should not be feed dry cat food. It contains many products that are not only unhealthy for your cat but can cause many other health problems in the future including diabetes. Meat should be the number one ingredient on the can. There are many fine products available and they don't have to be bought at the vet's office. Fancy Feast is available at any store and has high meat content; the first three ingredients (not just the first one) listed on the can are fish or meat.

Cats, as you know, are very fastidious and do not like an unclean litter box. My cats actually wait around in the morning for me to empty their litter box so they can use it after breakfast. Also they love to have plenty of privacy to go potty and prefer unscented litter, it's also a good idea to have an extra litter box located somewhere else in the home. If the box is not cleaned often, bacteria can accumulate to the point that contact with the litter will contaminate their urethra opening causing infections.

Some of the best UTI treatments for cats are the homeopathic remedies which can improve not only bladder health, but urinary tract health as a whole. These remedies combined with a healthy diet can quiet bladder distress to stop frequent urination, plus boost the immune system for overall health. Homeopathic remedies for our animals are safe and effective and do not have any side effects.
