pet health


Question by  sue (17)

Should I be concerned about foamy pee from one of my cats?


Answer by  Lauren (56)

Yes, seeing foamy urine coming from a cat should cause concern. This can be a sign of a serious digestive issue. The cat should be seen by a vet.

Probably not. If the cat seems to be acting normal and the urine doesn't have a different odor from normal its probably just a matter of its diet.

Yes, as this can be a sign of an infection or other serious medical problem. If the condition has persisted for more than a few days, contact your vet as soon as possible as they will be able to run the proper tests to find out what is wrong with the animal.

Yes, you should be concerned. Foamy urine can be an indication of protein in the urine, which can come from many different causes, like urinary tract infections, bladder stones, urinary tract blockage, kidney disease. I would recommend that you have a urinalysis performed to assess for protein in the urine as well as any indicators of an infection.

Changes in a cat's health such as foamy urine is a cause for concern; it may indicate serious health issues. A check-up by a vet is in order.

If the pee looks different than it normally does then this could be cause for concern. Whenever the appearance of a cat's pee changes a vet visit is in order to make sure nothing is wrong.

Yes - you should be concerned. This may be a urinary tract infection, which can be fatal in a very short period of time. Take your cat to the vet!

It can be a sign of a urinary tract infection, bladder issues or kidney disease. Another thing if the cat's urine does not smell I would not be that concerned. But it is always good to be safe than sorry. Take your cat to a vet!


Answer by  katharine (3981)

If the pee is different than how the cat normally pees, then yes, you should be worried. Take your cat to the vet to get checked.

Yes, absolutely! Unless you know of a previous condition or food that causes this, you need to see a vet ASAP and find out what the problem might be.
