Today we had a male cat brought in with a serve case of a blocked urinary track. A common  cause of this is crystal formation. Two of the most common crystals in cats is Struvite and Calcium oxalate.

Certain risk factors predispose your cat to the formation of these crystals including obesity, low water intake, high salt diets and indoor lifestyle. One of the first signs you will observe is a very uncomfortable, unsettled, unhappy cat who tried to urinate but cant. This can be a life threatening situation and needs veterinary attention immediately.
