I've heard that giving male cat's any seafood flavored products can cause urinary issues. Is this true?

To some extent...yes.
It mainly aggravates existing urinary problems...but consistently feeding foods high in magnesium (like fish, seafood) could be asking for trouble in a cat that doesn't have urinary problems. I do feed fish, but very rarely is it a completely "fishy" flavor...we do a lot of poultry/fish blends. Oh, and I don't let my bladder-problem boy have it except for maybe a rare treat.
That goes for any cat, male or female. The only difference is that the same problems are more complicated in a male.
