FRANK

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Frank is a big & strapping (but lazy) lad!

He was found as a stray in quite a state, he had clearly been beaten up but other cats and needed lot of rest and TLC. 

He now looks much better and is ready to find a new home.

Shortly after arriving in our care, Frank developed a condition known as cystitis. Cystitis is when cats struggle to pass urine as it is very painful. The nature of cystitis in cats is that it is very often triggered by stress, therefore it may recur at stressful times (such as moving house, going to a cattery etc). It can also be typical for un-neutered tom cats to hold a full bladder and only pass urine when needed and for scent marking which is likely to be the case for Frank. He only showed mild symptoms and didn’t require any pain relief/ anti-inflammatory medication.
He has been successfully treated by being fed a urinary prescription diet Hills Feline C/D Urinary Stress (dry food) as this maintains urinary tract health. 

Adopters should be aware that cats that have suffered from cystitis in the past are prone to recurrence in times of stress. We strongly advise that Frank remain on a urinary prescription diet for the foreseeable future, at least until he is fully settled into his new home. On advice from your vet you may be able to try a normal diet.


An average online cost of a 1.5kg bag of Hills Feline C/D Urinary Stress dry food is £14. (i.e. www.pet-supermarket.co.uk)
