Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi there I am Dr. Kane and will try to assist you with Asia tonight. I am sorry to hear she is having this issue with inappropriate urination. Urinating outside the box can be due to any number of things. Surprisingly, what we have found is that MOST of the time it is NOT due to an infection. Most of the time, it is something called idiopathic cystitis, which in layman's terms means inflammation of the bladder of unknown cause. Some measures that can be taken are to offer multiple litterboxes throughout the home (at least 1 per cat, PLUS 1), keeping the box clean daily, and using a product called Feliway to help decrease stress you cat may be experiencing.
It is possible that Asia may have an infection- but I would recommend having her examined and urine specimen tested before starting the antibiotic. Other possibilities for going out of the box are urine stones, kidney disease, diabetes. Her veterinarian will help determine a diagnostic and appropriate treatment plan. Has this helped?
Do you have any other concerns to address tonight? If not, please provide me with a rating. I hope Asia's problem is resolved soon!
