Blocked bladder

Worried your pet might have a blocked bladder?

  • Blocked bladders in male cats strain and become painful, which often requires surgery. Contact the practice as soon as possible if you think your cat has a blocked bladder, as they will require emergency care. 
  • Blocked bladders can also be a symptom of a urinary tract infection (UTI), which is most common in cats. If this is the case, a urine sample will need to be taken.
  • If you think your cat may have a UTI, offer fresh water at all times. Cats often prefer water fountains to bowls.
