Accurately decoding causes of lower urinary tract disease (LUTS) is important to animal welfare. Inappropriate urination is a leading cause of pet surrender and euthanasia. We can leverage diagnostics and therapeutics to avoid misdiagnosing the underlying clinical conditions resulting in LUTS and promote antibiotic stewardship. Our understanding of urinary healthy continues to evolve rapidly; however, therapeutic urinary diets are an essential tool in the treatment of the complex and multifactorial clinical conditions associated with LUTS.
