Abstract


Feline idiopathic cystitis is similar to human interstitial cystitis as the occurrence of both diseases is characterised by the involvement of stress, severe abdominal pain and a reduction in the protective glycosaminoglycan layer of the bladder. The present case report involves the occurrence of feline idiopathic cystitis in a tomcat. The animal was presented with the signs ofanorexia, vomiting, haematuria, dysuria, pollakiuria, periuria and urethral obstruction. Based on the results of haematology, serum biochemistry, imaging techniques, urinalysis and culture results, the case was diagnosed. Urethral patency was re-established by urethral catheterisation and the casewas managed with a combination of medical, dietary and multi-model environmental enrichment therapy.
