La cystite idiopathique féline est à l’origine de +/- 70% des symptômes du bas appareil urinaire chez le chat. Son origine est complexe et ne se résume pas à une inflammation vésicale, mais semble être l’expression d’une « hypersensibilité » au stress. Son diagnostic se fait par exclusion des autres causes de symptômes du bas appareil urinaire et son traitement se base sur la gestion du stress, une nourriture de prévention des cristaux et l’augmentation de la prise de boisson.
