Good evening, Erica.

Thanks for your question.

We commonly see that cats who urinate in places that they are not supposed to have a urinary tract infection. The best way to rule this out is to present your cat for a physical exam at your vets office, allow them to run a urinalysis and lab work if your vet feels it is indicated. They're likely to do a round of antibiotics to see if it helps. This is one of the many ways that cats try to bring our attention to the fact that something is wrong with them. Counter tops, sinks, floors, even in the owner's bed are all common locations for urinating. If this female is not already spayed, it would be advisable to have this done as this can also contribute to a willingness to deposit urine in places other than the litter box.

If my answer has helped you, please take the time to leave positive feedback. This is how experts are compensated by the website for their effort with each client. If questions remain, click reply and I will help you further.

Ok already had that in mind from serching on like so can I get antibiotics without taking to vet
Cat Vet: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 2 years ago

Antibiotics require a prescription and, unfortunately, cats are so small the ones marketed for people often are way too much and can make cats very sick. I would look at two different antibiotics in your spot, I would look at the injectable convenia (so you don't have to medicate, it's given once by a vet) or baytril (usually given 1-2 times a day).

Jack's MomTuscon, AZ

The vet said that the information and my following it will be what made the difference. Thanks again for being so very helpful.

TracyGrayson, LA

My oldest male cat had a seizure this evening. This site was the first place I could think of to go after the seizure had passed. Dr. Lucy was fantastic and she was spot on!

DebbieUSA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
