Abstract

Many forms of therapy currently used for empiric treatment of feline lower urinary tract diseases represent significant predisposing factors for fungal infection (i.e., prolonged antibiotic and/or glucocorticoid therapy, aciduria, and indwelling transurethral catheters). Therapy of fungal urinary tract infection should be based on the cat's clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory findings. Amelioration of risk factors has been associated with spontaneous resolution of funguria. For other patients, alkalinization and administration of antifungal chemotherapy are needed to control disease.
