What can be given to a cat for a urinary tract infection?
Six year old male cat that has been fixed. All of a sudden he is growling at me and not using his litter box both which is very out of character for him.
There are various types of urinary tract problems in cats, including stones, crystals, and cystitis. Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics prescribed by your vet. The only way to confirm a diagnosis of a urinary tract infection is to see your vet.Urinary blockage in male cats is life threatening and must be treated by a veterinarian immediately.
If he's growling and gone off his litter box I would suspect he's in pain and needs treatment, even if he's not blocked. I would only trust a hands on examination by a professional to know whether or not he's blocked and what his prognosis is. Please let us know what happens and how he gets on.
