    Urine acidifier

    By on

    This has helped my dog maintain the correct urine PH so that she does not get crystals, cystitis or infections. I am so grateful to my Vet for suggesting this product. It's too bad that it is so difficult to get. I've had to order another brand that is not laced with liver and so I must crush it in her food. I prefer this brand as it serves as a 'treat'. What do we owners/consumers have to do to get Lloyd to keep it in stock?????
