When dealing with your cats spraying urine, there comes a point where you feel as though you have tried everything, and nothing is working or putting an end to your cat's smelly ordeal. If this sounds familiar it may be time to see your veterinarian. Vets can be your best adviser when it comes to spaying behavior in cats. There are numerous options that your vet can make available to you which may solve your issues once and for all.

The most beneficial part in taking your cat to the vet is the ability to resolve any underlying health issues. No one wants to think about their pet being ill or uncomfortable but the hard truth is some spraying habits are a result of sickness or anxiety. Diabetes is one common disease that can result in cats spraying urine. Cats who are suffering with diabetes may also seem to have an unquenchable thirst and rapid weight loss. Treatments are available for cat diabetes and for the most part the cat can be treated and continue to live a long and healthy life.

If your cats spraying urine regularly and seems to be in pain while doing so they may have a urinary tract infection. These infections, when not treated in good time can be life threatening.

Kidney disease is also very common in cats and can cause cats to spray urine. Since the job of the kidneys is to rid the body of liquid waste the cat may show symptoms such as rapid weight loss, loss of appetite and as mentioned above the inability to make it to their litter box in time. This disease is usually treated with special fluids and prescription medications.

If you visit your vet and a complete examination does not bring any health issues to light, then your cats spraying urine may be due to stress or anxiety. For this your vet will probably recommend you use a product called Feliway. Feliway is a synthetic F3 facial pheromone found in cats. Feliway is a plug-in diffuser similar to an air freshener that you plug into a regular household outlet. The diffuser will dispense small amounts of the odorless (to humans) pheromone into the air. The premise is that the smell of the pheromone will calm your cat and make their surroundings seem more familiar.

If you feel that your cats spraying urine due to an unresolved health issue see your vet as soon as possible. Cats, though they seem to communicate with us regularly, can not tell us if they are unwell. A regular visit to your vet is the only way to insure your cat will live a long and happy life.
