Idiopathic Feline Urinary Tract Disease (IFLUTD)

Idiopathic Feline Urinary Tract Disease (IFLUTD), also knowns as Interstitial Cystitis, Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (FIC), or Feline Urologic Syndrome (FUS),is a general term that is used to refer to any condition affecting the lower part of the urinary tract of cats. Thus, affected cats can display a variety of symptoms that generally indicates the presence of a problem within the cat’s urinary bladder and urethra. Both male and female cats of any age can be affected, however, cases are higher among cats that are between 1-4 years of age.

The treatment regimen will depend on the diagnosis and will primarily involve correcting the symptoms that are present. If the cause is the presence of urine crystals, your veterinarian may prescribe a special diet that will prevent or stop crystal formation in the urine. If it is an obstruction in the urinary passage, the treatment regimen involves taking steps to flush out the blockage by increasing urine volume.
