Treating FLUTD: One Size Does Not Fit All
Lower urinary tract disorders are common in cats. In previous decades, the focus of study has been on causes and management of crystalluria. More recently it has become clear that the majority of cases of LUTD are idiopathic and the bladder may be the victim, rather than the initiator of the clinical signs. This presentation looks at the Pandora Syndrome, the roles of metabolism and of stress.
