My cat has CFS (Chronic Renal Failure) for the past 15 months and she gets chronic bacterial infections. I just recently started giving her a Vita-Mineral Mix from Halo pets and it seems like she is already healthier. It has only been about 9 days and I don't even give her the full dose only a 1/2 tsp one or two times a day I wanted to start slow as I am always very careful. She is more lively and energetic and her latest infection seems to be gone. I realized that the Vita Mix contains Montmorillonite Clay I had never heard of it before so I did some reading on it. I suppose it could be cleansing her body, it seems to be doing something good. I am even thinking of looking into taking some for myself. I will keep you posted on her progress.

Here's an update on my cat with CRF who I have been giving the Vita-Mix to for almost two months now. I do not give her the full dose I actually cut back to a couple of times a week instead of daily. The results are: She has gained weight, hasn't had a bad urinary infection, seems more social, has bouts of energy, I have been able to cut back on her antibiotics and I have also been able to cut back on her Sub Q injections, overall I would say she is doing great.

I read about the vita-mix for cats that has CRF and I would like to try it on my cat too. Is vita-mix a brand? If not, which brands of supplements manufacturers make that? Thanks!

EC: Sorry, we had mistitled it "Vita-Mix" when it's actually called "Halo Vita-Mineral Mix". If you search for it on Google, you will see the various pet stores that carry it.

I know this thread is several years old, but wanted to add my recent experience. I have two 19 yr old cats. One has kidney disease, while the other is in kidney failure. I ordered the Halo Vita-Mix and it arrived today. I noticed one of the ingredients is phosphorus. The cat in kidney failure is already on meds to remove extra phosphorus. I mixed a little and gave it to the other cat. Within 2 hours, he was huddled over the water dish with his head hanging almost in the water. This was a first, so I removed the rest of the food, gave him some tuna juice with ACV and a couple drops of Colloidal Silver. He seemed to improve and has not hovered over the water dish since. Be very careful if you give this product to your cat with kidney issues. I will try to return the product, and if I can't, then I will throw it out.
