What is FLUTD?
Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) is a general term for various infections, inflammatory diseases and other conditions affecting your pet's urinary tract.
FLUTD does include urinary tract infections but only seldom. If you see blood in your cat's urine, it is most probably a sign of FIC, bladder stones or a urethral plug — not an infection. In dogs, blood in the urine often is a sign of an infection, but this is rarely the case in young till middle aged cats.
Sometimes FLUTD is caused by bladder stones. Struvite and calcium oxalate stones are common stone types.
Struvite crystals in your cat's urine can combine with mucous and form a urethral plug. The urethra is a tube that carries urine from the bladder and out of the body.
If your cat is not peeing freely, a urinary blockage may be the cause. Contact your vet immediately as this condition is urgent and could be fatal if not treated.

Common FLUTD risk factors
Stress may play a major role in FIC, the most common type of FLUTD. Learn how to relieve your cat’s stress.
Some cat foods may be high in certain minerals, which may cause bladder stones to form.
Overweight cats are also more likely to suffer from FLUTD.
Low water intake
Low water intake
When pets drink less, their urine is more concentrated, which increases the likelihood of stone formation.
