My 5 yr. old Persian male cat gets cystits often but I was told by my vet that it is a emotional rather than physical problem. The vet said no dry food and keep the cat calm. Any other suggestions, such as vitamin supplements, etc.?
Many times cats develope chronic cystitis from stress. Make sure your pet is on a low ash diet if his urinary Ph is too basic and/or there are struvite crystals in the urine. There are also different kinds of medication available to help you cat be less stressed. I know it sounds funny but it is true. Good luck, vetcare
