Abstract

Feline lower urinary tract disease is a common and significant harmful disease in cats. In this paper, to investigate the etiology, clinical signs, and treatment of feline lower urinary tract syndrome, a case of feline lower urinary tract syndrome encountered in clinical practice was collected and recorded. The case was examined by clinical questioning, ultrasonic, routine blood tests, and biochemical blood tests, including Serum amyloid A and blood gases analyses. The cat was finally diagnosed with lower urinary tract syndrome and was treated conservatively with bladder irrigation and catheterization, followed by daily catheterization and infusion therapy. After 3-5 days of treatment, the cat was discharged with fair results and a good prognosis. It provides some references for the clinical management of the feline lower urinary tract disease.
