Title:Macskák húgykövességének epidemiológiai vizsgálata Magyarországon 2006 és 2014 között (480 eset)
SUMMARY The composition of a total of 480 feline uroliths was analysed in the Budapest Urolith Centre (BUC) during the study period. 77.3% of the total stones was composed of struvite. Calcium-oxalate, cystine and purine uroliths were detected in 17.8, 1.5 and 1 percentage, respectively. The average age of the affected cats was 71.2 (6 years) months and 90.1 (7,5 years) months with struvite and calcium-oxalate stones, respectively. The ratio of the number of calcium-oxalate-to-struvite uroliths increased consistently over the 9 years of the survey from 0.13 to 0.8. Male animals were represented more than 2 and 1.5 times greater among the struvite and calcium-oxalate producing cats, respectively. The prevalence of calciumoxalate urolithiasis was observed 2 and 5 times higher in Persian and British Shorthair cats, respectively, compared to the prevalence of struvite. The Siamese breed was overrepresented among the cystine producing cats. Current study is the first publication on the epidemiologic characteristics of feline urolithiasis in Hungary. The results provide a base for further comparative investigations on the urolithiasis and underlying factors in this population.
