In this post we will offer some tips for Cats and Dogs with Urinary Tract Dysfunction that the Chemical Drug Industry Does Not Want You to Know.
FLUTD - FelineLowerUrinaryTractDisease is an umbrella term describing various urinary tract illnesses in cats, which are very common. Ourprevious blog post went into detail to explain the symptoms and prevention techniques.
In this post we'll provide health tips for cats and dogs that already have urinary health issues. This post suggests several natural remedies that can be easily found in grocery/natural food stores, and which are not expensive drugs developed by the chemical drug industry. These natural health tips help adding healthy years onto both cats (especially male cats) and dogs that live with urinary tract dysfunction at any age with no chemical drug side effects.
Purines are a biochemical that forms from the breakdown of proteins in the kidneys. High concentration of purines leads to creation of crystals and urinary tract stones, which injure the lining of the bladder and provide a viable host to parasitic disease causing bacteria in the lining to of the bladder and the walls of the Urethra (tube that provides the path for urine to exit from the body).
Purines/uric acid can be neutralized with simple remedies readily available in grocery stores. The remedies also help restore the pH balance.
Lemon Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar
Option 1. Add both lemon juice and apple cider vinegar
- Add 5 – 10 CC / 10 Lbs. body Wt. / Day of Lemon Juice
- also, as a side benefit - lemon juice added to pet food is a great natural flea and tick repellent
- Add 5 – 10 CC Per 10 Lbs Body Wt. Per Day of Bragg’s apple cider vinegar per meal to all cat and dog food
Option 2. Add either lemon juice OR apple cider vinegar
- Add 12 CC Day / 10 Lbs. of body Wt. / Day if you just using one of these supplements in your pet’s food
For either option, you may want to add stevia to the food to neutralize the sour taste of the Bragg’s apple cider Vinegar or lemon juice.
Devil's Claw Herb
Another way to help improve urinary health is to add 250 Mg / 10 Lbs Body Wt. of Devil’s Claw herb to each feeding for cats and dogs.
Adding 1 part water to 1 part dry kibble food and letting the food ferment in the refrigerator also helps avoiding urinary tract issues.
The most effective way is to combine lemon juice and / or the Bragg’s apple cider vinegar with hydrated dry kibble for best results.
All of the above are excellent ways to neutralize purines and reduce/prevent urinary blockages.
