  • How I Tackled My Silver Tabby’s Urine Problem

    My cat Misty is getting on a bit and has started to pick up digestive and urinary problems that many cats tend to have when they get older. She is 15 years old now and might only three or four years left in her. She has had a good life though and I expect she’s had many adventures with other cats in our area as we live in quite a cat friendly neighbourhood. When I started noticing that Misty was finding it harder to digest her food the first thing I did was to change her usual cat food.

    I’m not a cat expert when it comes to the science-side of things and I kind of took what my vet told me and researched it a little bit more on the Internet. From what I can gather the main problem is that Misty has difficulty with bladder stones, which basically unbalances her urine and pH level causing digestion problems and pain. Following what information can be found on the Internet and advice from my vet I decided to go for Royal Canin Urinary SO that I could buy from the online pet shop Nutrecare. The reason why I chose this and you’ll have to bear with me because as I said I’m not too great on the science-side of things, but a lot of treatments out there tend to focus on only one type of urinary problem, which can actually increase the risk of contracting another type of infection!

    According to the information I have read from the Royal Canin Urinary SO packaging, this product actually tackles the two types of bladder infections that cats usually tend to get. Since I started treating Misty with this solution I have noticed a huge difference in her and she seems to be passing urine a lot easier than before. I have also noticed that she is a bit livelier so that seems to be a definite positive result. I will still be keeping an eye on the situation and ensure that she gets a regular dosage of this urine treatment.
