Feline idiopathic cystitis is an inflammatory process of the urinary bladder with behavioral origins, in which chronic stress assumes an important role in the disease's physiopathology. It affects mainly felines in the adult age, males, with historical of low hydric ingestion and it could be a recurrent disease. Neural therapy consists in a self-regulation therapy that acts directly in the autonomical nervous system and is very diffused in Germany, Austria, Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Switzerland, Uruguay and the Soviet Union. The objective is the discovery of the interference fields that are blocking the body operation, and the application of local anesthetics in low concentrations in specific points is the mechanism used to unblock the various systems. The objective of this work is to report a well succeeded feline idiopathic cystitis case, treated with neural therapy in acupuncture points.
