Abstract:  Feline urologic syndrome is a relatively common occurrence in cats. This discussion focuses on symptoms, treatment, feline nutrition, the feline urologic syndrome diet and discussion of the diet. The diet described is low in magnesium, which greatly reduces the risk of stone formation in cats that have previously suffered from urolithiasis and/or have been diagnosed with feline urologic syndrome. It provides the necessary nutrients that ensure feline health and may be prepared relatively inexpensively.
