What do Apple Cider Vinegar and Litter Getter have in common? They are both miraculous and natural solutions for one of the cat world's most notorious villains - Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). Urinary Tract infections, Feline Urologic Syndrome (FUS), Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD), Feline Idiopathic Cystitis or Feline Interstitial Cystitis are all terms for a central condition. Most notably, bad bugs accumulate in a cat's urinary system, causing some serious discomfort. You can read more about causes and signs of a kitty UTI here.
The number one reason families surrender cats to a shelter is improper urination. Accordingly, pet shelters are packed and a resulting 1.4 million cats are euthanized every year. Wow! As cat lovers, we have a responsibility to decrease this number. We can do so by educating ourselves on cat behavior and health.
Here at Litter Getter, we're passionate about promoting cat health through natural solutions. Don't let a UTI get the best of your patience and your feline. While no advice can supersede a vet visit, here are two miraculous tips for helping your cat heal naturally:
As an immediate solution, try adding 1/4 teaspoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to your cat's water two times a day. (We like this brand.) The high acidic level of Apple Cider Vinegar hinders the presence of bad bugs in your cat's urinary system. You can also prevent future UTIs by regularly adding 1/2 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to his water or canned food once a day.
The benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar don't stop there! Just a small amount gives your cat the nutrients he needs to grow a beautiful and shiny coat. When applied topically, it can even ward away pesky insects like fleas and mites. (Be sure to dilute the Apple Cider Vinegar with water. It's acidity can be too harsh for your cat's skin.)
Cats with UTIs will typically feel moderate to severe pain from the infection. When cats try to use the litter box and strain to eliminate, they begin associating pain with the box. This may cause them eliminate elsewhere, leaving both cats and cat owners frustrated. Litter Getter is an all natural herbal solution that serves as an attractant for your cat. The outdoor scent of Litter Getter's formula easily draws your cat back to the box, even as he's healing from a UTI.
You can use Litter Getter as a consistent solution to your cat's litter box issue, whether it stems from a medical or behavioral cause.
Again, we encourage a vet consultation if your cat is showing signs of a UTI condition. Adding Apple Cider Vinegar and Litter Getter to his wellness plan will be a preventative and miraculous formula. These two small changes can stop UTI issues before they start.
