Foods for Cats with Urinary Tract Problems

As you recall, two weeks ago Felix had a urinary tract blockage that sent us straight to the veterinarian. It was an emergency situation and one that kept him hospitalized for three days, two of them catheterized and on an IV.

During Felix’s stay, we talked with our veterinarian daily as we went up to get Felix to eat. Felix had been on prescription dry food for the past eight years but, since this problem arose again, we knew it was time for a change.

We talked with our vet about changing Felix’s diet to an all-canned cat food diet. Since cats typically won’t drink enough water on their own (and we even have a Drinkwell fountain to encourage all the cats to drink more), they can get a great deal more water by eating canned food compared to dry food.

When we picked up Felix, we told our vet that we wanted to switch Felix to an all-canned diet and she printed out a list of canned cat foods that are low carbohydrate and lower calorie than many other foods.

We’re not recommending any of these foods in particular–you need to talk with your own vet for recommendations–but we wanted to share this list with our readers. Many also recommend reducing fish in your cat’s diet (although you’ll see several fish varieties below) so talk with your vet for recommendations regarding your specific cat.

Several of the foods on the list below are easy to locate brands (and ones you’ll find coupons for if you look around). Most importantly: talk with your vet about the options for feeding your cat to prevent these problems!
