My 2 year old neutered male cat (monkey)has just been diagnosed with FLUTD after 2 distressing blockages. Despite giving 2 urine samples to the vet they have not yet tested/confirmed which kind of crystals are forming but the nurse did confirm that that's what it'd be.
Prior to his sudden and unexpected blockage I had been feeding him a high quality dry food diet often with canned meat on top as a treat as I naively believed that dry food was the way forward - after reading up on FLUTD i was alarmed to discover that it is probably his diet that has caused these problems
I brought him home 2 days ago, he is being given a 7 day course of antibiotics and twice daily cystease. I am mixing his old wet food with Royal Canin S/O Urinary and so far he seem to be doing well - his wee's are still small and often but getting bigger and he's back to his boisterous self! the vet said that he should be kept on S/O forever - will a good quality wet diet not do for the long term?! help!
