Although urolithiasis and the formation of urethral plugs are important causes of feline LUTD, in many cases no specific cause of disease is evident. Clinical studies in cats with apparently ''idiopathic'' feline LUTD have suggested that some cases may respond to dietary modifications which acidify urine, provide a good urine volume and restrict magnesium intake. Nutritional research has mainly focused on the formation of struvite uroliths and has resulted in specific recommendations for management and prevention of these uroliths. Urethral plugs have been less well studied, although recent results show reduced recurrence of plugs by dietary modification.
