Why do cats seem to suffer urinary obstruction more often in the cooler months?

While there are many reasons urinary obstructions occur, one may be because cats typically drink water regularly during the hot summer months. As the seasons shift to cooler temperatures they are more likely to consume less fluids due to the drop in temperature or perhaps because of decreased activity and/or forced confinement.

Add water to each serving of canned food in order to increase the daily intake.
