Approach to urethral obstruction in the cat: Part 3: addressing underlying concerns and preventing recurrence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Background: The management of cats with urethral obstruction does not end in the clinic. Unless the underlying cause of urethral obstruction is addressed, this problem is likely to recur and this requires a multimodal approach that includes a behavioural assessment and evaluation of the cat's home environment.

Aim of the article: This is the final article in a three-part series on urethral obstruction in cats. This article focuses on home management to prevent recurrent obstruction, and on addressing underlying feline idiopathic cystitis. The first article discussed presentation and stabilisation, while the second summarised urethral catheterisation and immediate postcatheterisation management.
