Urolithiasis was diagnosed by clinical and radiographic examination in a 2.5 year old male cat. Under general anesthesia routine laparotomy procedure was applied. Urine was taken out from the filled bladder and vesicotomy was performed. Crystalloid structures (uroliths) found in the bladder and urethra was removed. Urinary system antiseptic and antibiotics were administered during the postoperative period. Owner of the patient was informed about a proper feeding in order to avoid relapse. As a result, the diet of the castrated male cats requires special attention in order to avoid calculi formation. Low-protein foods which prevent crystallization in urinary tract must be preferred. Urine pH should occasionally be checked and water consumption should be encouraged by providing a source of fresh water.
