Interesting product for urinary health in cats
So when I went to visit Amy, (so apparently it was Lisa.. I feel horrid that I mixed that up, but I do have a really good excuse) she gave me a product designed for urinary health. I had never heard of it before and found the idea kinda fascinating..
It is called "Solu" It is designed to be added to water to increase palatability for a cat to encourage water consumption.
The package says it is made in Missouri. It also says they have a website at solupet.com but the website is not working. There is a facebook page but it hasn't been updated since July. I thought that it might not even be being sold any more, but I did find it over at Entirely Pets
So anyway, I thought I would give it a shot. While not a fan of fish anything for cats with urinary issues, I also know that none of the reasoning why has been fully documented. I tend to avoid it out of habit more than anything else. I figured if I could get Jack drinking more water it would be worth it.
So they come in little gel strips, much like breath strips.. only slightly bigger.. you put them in 3/4c of water and let them dissolve.
Yeah, they weren't waiting for it to dissolve, so I picked it up and hid it for a while.. and it turned into this
This did not garner nearly as much interest, and they pretty much all walked away from it.. well except Muffin who gave it one more try..
Sadly it didn't garner the interest I was hoping.. but that is OK. Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince.. This one didn't work for us, but it might work for someone else.. that is if you can still get it.
I was very happy for the opportunity to try this.. thank you Amy..I mean LISA!!
