This week Kate and Don talk with Dr. Mike McCaw from the Veazie Veterinary Clinic about urinary health in cats; one of the top two health issues for our feline friends. We start off with a discussion about Idiopathic Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (IFLUTD) a disease which can be fatal to cats in just a few hours. Dr. McCaw guides us through the symptoms, causes, the diagnosis, how it is treated and how you can prevent the disease. We also discuss other urinary issues and end talking about the role of the litterbox.
