If your cat has been diagnosed with feline bladder thickening, then your pet has probably had urinary tract infections in the past. What is this condition and how can you treat and reverse it?

The first thing you need to understand is that feline or cat bladder thickening is not a disease, but a symptom. Although it can lead to other urinary issues, it will not shorten your cat's life. Still, it is a problem that needs to be addressed.

When a cat has a urinary tract infection and is unable to empty the bladder completely, then it is under pressure and the cat feels a constant need to urinate. If the infection is treated but never completely heals (or left untreated), then this pressure builds up and over time the muscles of the bladder wall grow thicker and shorter from all the pressure. This makes it increasingly difficult for your cat to control urination. When this happens, the symptom of feline bladder thickening has just become a serious problem because the toxins in the bladder need to be emptied completely and regularly.

One way to alleviate feline or cat bladder thickening is with drug therapy, using steroids plus antibiotics to get rid of any infections. For cats who have serious issues, this may be the best course of action. The problem is that cats are sensitive creatures and may not tolerate the side effects from such harsh drugs.

Another option is to address the issue from a natural perspective using holistic remedies formulated specifically to treat this problem and stop infection in its tracks. Natural remedies formulated with herbs like Cantharis and Staphysagris are clinically proven to eliminate infection, soothe inflamed tissues and heal the bladder so that feline bladder thickening is a thing of the past. Best of all, since these remedies are completely natural, they are gentle and have no side effects or worries about drug interactions.

In addition to giving your cat a holistic remedy, make sure to supply plenty of fresh, clean water. Rather than giving your cat tap water, use filtered water because the chemicals in tap water can alter the pH of the bladder which can lead to more infections. The more water your cat drinks, the more it will dilute the urine, making it much more likely that your cat will flush out toxins. To make urinating a pleasant experience, make sure the litter box is cleaned regularly.

Finally, if your cat seems to be prone to urinary issues, the natural remedy recommended above is gentle enough to use daily. Make sure to keep up the regimen of a good diet and provide lots of fresh, filtered water. And that's it: a safe, natural method of treating feline bladder thickening and making it go away for good.
