Urinary Tract Disorders in Cats

Cranberry

I am fortunate to have a vet who respects my dislike of anti-bio-tics. She ran tests on my 18 year old cat's urine to find which specific bacteria/crystals caused his distress. She suggested I buy Trader Joe's Cranberry extract, and give my cat a half a tablet crushed up food mornings and a half in evenings. One week later, his urinary pH was back to normal, without bacteria, and no crystals. I'm assuming this would work only for certain kinds of distress, and DEFINATELY not if there's already a blockage....I also would not continue the cranberry full time, as it affects acid-alkaline balance.

I used apple cider vinegar to cure my cat's urinary blockage after a 1500 dollar visit to the vet the first time this occured. A neighbor suggested trying a home remedy. I found this web site and learned about apple cider vinegar to cure cat's of urinary blockage.I had a syringe from the vet for giving my cat water to help him swallow his medicine I used this 6 militer syringe to give my cat ACV BY MIXING IT WITH ONE CUP OF WATER AND GIVING HIM 1FULL syringe in the morning and 1 at night the 1st 3 days then 1/2 a teespoon of ACV to his water dish which holds 2 cups.

I am pleased to report that MAX my male cat is doing fine and is urinating normally now will keep him on this for the rest of his life. my thanks to Earth clinic

Outstanding information on this site.

Why isn't Apple Cider Vinegar a staple in every household? Truly a life changing remedy the doctors sure don't tell you about. Thanks a million to everyone who took the time to provide VALUABLE information on this site. I'm using it now for my cat who almost died from crystals...a urinary blockage. The vet wanted to perform a painful $1,500 surgery, but the ACV is doing the trick to regulate his PH levels. Unbelievable...

I cured one of my tomcats with apple cider vinegar earlier this year. Just spent $100 dollars to treat a second cat who developed a sudden complete blockage. Someone mentioned on a different thread here (bladder problems in cats) to PUT THE AVC ON THEIR PAWS and let them lick it off. This is a much more efficient way to treat than trying to administer with a syringe. I am going to start doing this regularly to prevent future problems. Earth Clinic is WONDERFUL!

I haven't seen anybody mention putting some ACV in the drinking water of your feline friend. Thats what we have done for all of our pets and it works great for cats that have urinary problems.

As far as the amount, you will have to experiment with how much they will tolerate.... start with a teaspoon in a bowl of water and increase from there.

Avoid feeding kitty with urinary track issues foods with any ash content in it. especially if you have a Simase kitty who seem to be more prone to urinary problems than other breeds.

Wile Ash is not the only cause of urinary problems it is a major contributing factor of flare ups and infections since the ash blocks the urinary track and makes it harder and very painful to pee.

You may be suprised how many dry and [wet] canned foods have a very high content of ash in them. The list of ingredients begin's with the highest amount contained in the food to the least amount on the bottom of the list.

hope this helps some. Marcella

FLUTD and apple cider vinegar - I was actually wondering what the measurements were for the cats and how it was given I have a cat 4 yrs old that has struvite crytalls and keeps getting them which means vet which means unhappy kitty. His last bout #4, he was peeing all over our new house. I had a vet that was all over the place about taking care of him, so I would like to try this remedy. They want to keep him on amitryiptaline to see if that would help. Any thoughts would be greatly apprecited! Thanks for the time.

Hi My name is Joy, i have a 2 and a half year old female doberman that was spayed about a month and a half ago. Two weeks later i have realised that she seems to have a weak bladder. I wake up in the mornings drenched in what seems to be water. It also almost has a weird smell.. cant put my finger on it but almost a weak blood smell but its clear water. I am not sure if it is urine.. sure doesnt smell like it. I am terrified. I phoned my vet who just told me very relaxed that it is a lifelong problem and she would need to take pills every day. I almost fainted when i heard that.. i came across your article on ACV and bought some last night. I fed it to her with some yogurt... she seemed to like it. I am still very worried about her.. but over here we have vet's that only want your money and your dogs best interest comes last. Can anyone please tell me what you think of the ACV and if it really works? Thanks

Himalayan salt. My female cat has had severe bladder problems for over 2 years. Antibiotics helped a little bit but it always came back. She has dry food for PH-balance but that did not help either. I tried vitC, cranberry and ACV but she does not want that, even hidden in food she really loves. 'About a year ago I put a little bit of Himalayan salt in the water, initially for my dog who has arthritis. Well she still has (the dog) but my cat drinks from that water too (she loves it) and has not had any bladder problems since. I still also give her the food for PH balance.

Urinary Blockage
Posted by Camille (Pleasant Valley, New YorK) on 02/01/2008

I'm seeking a cure, as well as preventative measures for urinary blockage in male cats. My cat was eating a wet food that has been discontinued along with his dry food. He refuses to eat any other brand of wet food. He developed urinary blockage from lack of wet food. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In response to Camille from Pleasant Valley, New York It's very important to know WHAT kind of crystals are causing the blockage. My cat had Struvite crystals from being to alkaline. I stoped all free choice dry food - this causes the body to become alkaline. I now feed him a quality GRAIN FREE cat food. I hide one 250mg vitC and add a spoonfull of turkey and sweet potatoe babyfood (for extra moisture) to the top of all of it. 3 days a week I add an 1/8 of a teaspoon of a cranberry supplement.Any time I notice a lack of pee in his litter box I drain a can of tuna or chicken into a cup and mix with filtered or bottled water (He LOVES this!!) to up his water intake. Knock on wood he has been crystal free now for 2 years!! But you have to know what his Ph is and what kind of crystals he has before you try this! Good Luck!!

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful ACV is. My cat started showing symptoms of a UTI. I stumbled upon your web site and thought I'd try this remedy on him hopeing It could decrease his infection until I could get him to the vet. It not only decreased it but he is acting like his old self again. He is having bowel movements and urinating normal again. He is energetic and running around the house with the energy of a kitten. His coat is shiny and soft. I will still take him to the vet and get his urine tested but I am confident that it will show no sign of his illness. Thank you for helping folks who are searching for natural remedies to treat illness.
