How to prevent urinary tract infection?

Prevention of upper urinary tract infections
Prevention of upper urinary tract infections should be started as soon as possible.
The most common form of upper urinary tract infection is cystitis, where you will see a cat with a normal urine stream, but which will dribble urine from time to time.
If cystitis is not treated, it can lead to pyelonephritis, which is an infection of the kidney, and the presence of which can lead to renal failure.
These cats will have a normal urine stream for weeks and then suddenly start to dribble urine.
Prevention of lower urinary tract infections
Prevention of lower urinary tract infections should be started as soon as possible.
If you do not want to use antibiotics to treat a urinary tract infection in a cat, you should pay attention to your cat's diet and the cleaning of the litter box.
