You need to move away from these less familiar foods for managing a problem like this...
It's not only about the urine pH. A urinalysis tells a great deal of info:Urinalysis
We need to know if there are white blood cells present, crystals, etc...
I am actually suspicious that diet may not help at all if your cat is having the idiopathic cystitis condition.
That can be caused by stress!
The fact that the last urine test showed no fection does support cystitis!
So, your cat would most benefit from pain medication like buprenex (given orally), supplementation for stress:Feliway Spray
orPheromone Collar NurtureCalm
Potential treatment options for Idiopathic Cystitis or Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease include:
*Helps to relax the urethra to make urinating easier
2. Cosequin for Cats
*May help to protect the inside of the bladder wall
3. Buprenorphine (Buprenex)
*Incredible injectable pain medication that can be given orally to cats in very small amounts.
4. Royal Canin Urinary SO diet or other prescription diet designed to reduce certain
Minerals, change the urine pH, etc…
5. Increased water intake can be beneficial either by using a canned diet or
stimulating the interest in drinking by purchasing a running water kitty fountain.
6. Whenever a urinary tract infection is suspected, the veterinarian should also
Perform a “culture and sensitivity” on the urine at the laboratory to confirm an infection, identify it, and know which antibiotics are best to kill it.
That's about the most I can help.
