What is urinary bladder disease?
Signs of urinary bladder disease are due to inflammation in the bladder wall. The bladder of dogs and cats can become infected, produce stones/crystals, and develop growths as well as tumors. Cats can also suffer from an inflammatory condition called idiopathic cystitis. Proper treatment requires diagnosis of its cause.
