Urinary incontinence in cats
Urinary incontinence is not the most pleasant of pet issues, and happens when a cat loses control of their bladder. You will usually notice the issue when they begin urinating in places that are unusual, or where it seems they are not seeming themselves. Urinary incontinence can happen due to a number of reasons, including injury, hormones or an infection. If you think it could be a serious issue for your cat, you should always take them to the vet, but if you would like to try a home option first there are a number of natural foods and techniques you can try.
The secret of the cranberry
Many associate cranberries with Christmas time, but they’re actually amazing all year round! Packed full of essential phytonutrients, the humble cranberry is considered a superfood ingredient with a host of benefits. The key use of cranberries for cats is for aiding urinary health and helping to protect from bacteria. A compound that is naturally occurring in the fruit called proanthocyanidins (PAC) is said to help with reducing the amount of bacteria that sticks to the walls of their bladder. If too much builds up here, it can cause urinary tract issues, meaning cranberries can be a great choice for helping with this problem. Additionally, a study has linked the fruit to being helpful in the prevention of these issues, showing how it is the perfect fruit to consume all year round, not just when an issue arises.
