Follow-up care for your pet is crucial and includes the following:

  • Physical examination and urinalysis should be repeated 5-7 days after discharge from the hospital.

  • Give all prescribed medications and contact your veterinarian if you have difficulty treating your cat or if you suspect there is a recurrence.

  • Provide your pet with a clean litter box at all times and frequent opportunities to urinate. For tips on maintaining the ideal litter box, please read The Fine Art of Litter Box Care.

  • Provide plenty of fresh clean drinking water. Some manufacturers offer products such as a pet waterfall to encourage water consumption by cats. For tips on how to stimulate drinking, please read Tips for Encouraging Your Cat to Drink.

  • Help your pet maintain a healthy body weight and prevent obesity by proper feeding and diet.

  • Feed a canned food product if at all possible.

  • Try to minimize stress for your pet by keeping the environment as stable as possible. If you have multiple cats, please read Reducing Multicat Household Stress. Provide scratching posts, climbing toys, toys to chase, and don't introduce new animals to his environment to minimize stress and enrich his environment. For tips on enriching his home, please read Selecting the Right Environmental Enrichment for Your Cat.
