Does she eat dry food?

How long is she doing this?

Iams urinary tract food & I try to only give her chicken or Turkey wet food

Thank you,  please give me 15.minites to type detailed answer

When I first got her like 2yrs ago she did it for a week or 2 that's when a friend suggested those foods, we thought she was stressed with new place

I am sorry you have trouble with Kitkat.

Cats are obligate carnivores who digest protein much better than carbs.  Hence dry food turns urine too.alkaline causing a burning sensation when she pees.

She may associate her box with pain and choose a soft surface hoping it will hurt less to pee there.

Dry food can cause UTI,  crystals and even stones.

Please reas article written by a feline vet

Give her one tablespoon of cranberry juice with a dropper every 8 hours till she uses her box consistently.

It will acidify her urine and stop the burning sensation,  frequency and urgency.

Discontinue dry food  to prevent a recurrence.

Up her fluid intake to flush her bladder by draining the water from a can of tuna into a dish for her to lap.

It will hydrate her and replace her electrolytes plus flush her bladder.

If she is lethargic rub a drop.of honey or syrup into her gums every ten minutes until she perks up.

Please keep me updated on her condition

Thank you so much , I will do all these things
Is dinovites powder food for her?

You are more than welcome

It was my pleasure to help.such a wonderful person.

Actually canned food is best for cats.

Its 60% water so it keeps them well.hydrated.

Please be so kind as to rate my answer so I am credited by the site

I did a 5, maybe I didnt do it right?
I meant is the dinovites Good for her

Is Dinovites wet or dry food?

It is a powder that I can add to food or water

As long as you can add water, its ok.

Ok thank you

Is it a probiotic like forrt flora?

Ot a supplement?

Like a vitamin supplement I heard it was good for their fur because she had bad mats! But some reviews said it caused renal failure?

I just looked it up.  Its a digestive supplement.

You will control matts better by feeding canned food for the oil content

And adding a tablespoon of salmon oil daily for omega 3 fatty acids

Oh thank you

My pleasure

Hi can I still ask questions here?
could i ask another question about kitkat?
I am not sure if this is where i ask new ? but my cat is still spraying everywhere even though she has had cranberry juice and only wet food?
i still need help with my cat, she is still spraying everywhere, help

Are you still giving her dynovite?

No I was afraid that could be problems

If shes still spraying she may have stones or crystals in her bladder or a UTI

She needs to be seen in person by a vet to diagnose or rule out those conditions

Ok thanks

Let me know what happens
