Rated 5 out of 5 by legolex Saved my cat
My youngest cat developed struvite crystals and was hospitalized for three nights, luckily he survived but the vet recommended putting him on Science Diet for life. His urine had very high pH levels which is how he developed the crystals so he had to be on a low pH food. I am someone who feeds my cats holistic, natural foods so I panicked at the thought of switching him. At the time I was feeding him mostly hard food with wet food a few times a week, the hard food is what dried him out and raised his pH.
Against the Vet's recommendations I did some intense research and found this product. I put my cat on an all-wet (holistic brand) diet and added this as a supplement. This is a great product for making sure your cat's urine pH levels are in check. You have to stay away from fish when you have a cat that is susceptible to high pH levels because fish will raise it significantly but this allows him to have a chicken/fish mixture a couple times a week.
Lastly, I highly recommend purchasing pet pH testing strips so you can test the cat's urine pH. Struvite Crystals develop when the cat's pH levels are too high but Oxylate Crystals can develop when the cat's pH is too low so you need to be diligent and monitor to make sure the cat is not on either end of the spectrum.

Use this powder mixed with wet food so my cat doesn't develop bladder crystals. Works exceptionally well, MUCH cheaper then vet visits!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Asilef Great product!
My kitty has been suffering from crystals and uti's. She was hiding from life or living in the litter box and leaving drops of blood in her urine for me to see. Numerous trips to the vet, 5 rounds of antibiotics (3 of which were consecutive), goop to dissolve crystals that she ran from or slung everywhere, $80.00 worth of cosequin caps sprinkled on her food - all to no avail. Tons of wasted "new" expensive foods - super finicky. After all that, she was still having major issues. Did a little research online and found this product as well as Solid Gold Berry Balance and sprinkled both over Purina One dry for urinary issues and I now have a totally different cat. She's happy again, playful and has 100% normal urinary habits. PHEW! Both of my cats scarf it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by foodzings Cured my cat of struvite crystals!
One of my cats was diagnosed with struvite crystals after she went outside of the litter box for the first time in her life and became suddenly aggressive. While the vet wanted to put her on expensive and nutritionally questionable prescription food, I decided to do some research and came upon Biotic pH-. I'm so happy to say that this worked! And after 2 months of using this, along with Berry Balance in the second month, she is now 100% crystal free. It has the same active ingredient that the prescription food has so I wanted to try this and keep her on good and healthy wet food instead. It really worked!

Both of my cats have had struvite crystals often. This product, along with Tinkle Tonic, has eliminated the problem. I was purchasing this from another company until I found that Chewy.com has it for a lot less! Thanks Chewy!

Bought this for cat with bladder stones having much trouble. First couple days were tough on cat. Seemed that the added acidic urine irritated her. Kept area clean and used ointment recommended by vet. After two days seemed to turn the corner and started improving. After two weeks she is back to normal with no more signs of stones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeepSearch Works for my cat who gets struvite crystals
My long hair cat Edward has a history of struvite crystals in his urine and getting partial blockages that cause strained urination. We put him on a natural diet of no-grain meat cat food to acidify his urine and also for weight management. For awhile he seemed to be fine on this diet, but when he started having trouble urinating once again we had to take him to the vet to have his urine tested. We discovered he still had a rather high load of crystals in his urine. I gave him this supplement daily after that mixing it with his canned food at every meal. When we took Edward back to the vet a few days later to see how his urine looked the number of crystals had lessened and the vet stated that the supplement was working.
DL-Methionine is the ingredient that deters the crystal formation by acidifying the urine. It is the same ingredient that is put in the prescription vet foods that are recommended for cats who get struvite crystals.
Note that it is important to measure the supplement for your pet to be sure they get the proper amount. At first I used the shaker and I don't believe my cat got enough of the supplement. When I measured the amount he should get daily is when he did a lot better. He has not had a blockage since I began doing this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJKLH2 My cats LOVE this product
Our female cat acquired a UTI that came on fast and required emergency animal vet care. She was provided with fluids and antibiotics and got well. We wanted a strategy to maintain our pets health so we did not have to face this again. My research lead me to this product. Our female cat will ONLY eat dry food so I wondered how were going to sprinkle this product on and have her eat it. Wow. I put a dusting of this on her dry food and she really loves this stuff. Our large Mancoon Tabby mix who doesn’t care for dry foods began to eat it this. We now sprinkle his wet food with PH Biotic and he loves this stuff too! Now if we feed the cats without a sprinkle of the PH Biotic they look up at you and will wait until it is sprinkled on before they will eat. I am not exaggerating my cats want this product. By the way we feed quality foods – Wellness Core dry and Tiki Cat wet. Regardless our cats want this supplement and look beautiful. They have been on this supplement for about 3 weeks and they look great and we have had no further UTI symptoms. I will continue to buy this product.
