Cystitis can be triggered by anxiety. I keep my cat supplied with cat nip to help reduce his anxiety levels and he remains on a special Renal diet of dry food from the vet and distilled water. I do not allow him to have any beef products and I give him fresh fish and chicken table scraps when available. He also loves tuna broth from canned tuna. All these precautions have helped to keep my F.U.S. cat UTI-free.
