What Do Crystals in Cat Urine Mean?

What do crystals in cat urine mean, and what can I do about it?

A buildup of crystals may lead to a urinary tract problem.

The good news is that the problem may be caused by your cat’s diet, which is easy to control. And since dehydration can contribute to kitty’s crystal calamity, always make sure clean, fresh water is available. Also, keep in mind that canned food is generally moister than dry cat food.

As always, these basic nutritional options are not an alternative to seeking your veterinarian’s advice—crystals are a clear sign to have your cat checked out.
