Hematuria reflect bleeding in any part of the urinary tract or reproductive tract. As one of the clinical signs of any lower urinary tract disorder, it can reflect stress and distress in a patient. However, it can also be caused by urine collection. This presentation will look at identifying whether hematuria is significant or not, the source of blood, and how to use hematuria to follow the progress in health and illness.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to understand how to use hematuria:
• To improve client compliance in monitoring stressed cats
• As a marker in managing cats with crystalluria and urolithiasis
• To monitor effect of environmental changes in cats with idiopathic cystitis
