Urinary tract infections are a common cause of urinating outside the litterbox or spending more time than normal in the litterbox. Changes in water intake and urination habits are our pet’s way of communicating to us there is a problem. Any time you see a change in behavior, call us immediately at 810 678 3938. Urinary tract infections can cause pain and inflammation and can lead to other health problems and should be diagnosed as early in the problem as possible. Crystal formation is also a side effect of urinary tract infections and may need diet changes to correct.
