What does it mean if my pet has begun licking around their urinary area?

It really depends. This could be normal grooming, or it could be the start of a medical problem.

Check that your pet is urinating okay for a start. Make sure it's not urinating more than normal, that it's not painful when they're urinating, and certainly that there's no signs of blood in the urine because that would indicate a medical problem.

If urination is abnormal, you need to give your vet a call and get your animal checked out. If you have a male cat who is trying to go to the toilet and can't, this could indicate a blocked bladder. Now, this is a serious condition, so you need to seek veterinary advice straightaway.
