Hello-

I do not know for sure of a veterinarian who acknowledges "clumping cat liter" associated disease (so feel free to not accept if you don't think this will help), but it seems like most treatment for this problem occurs at holistic veterinary facilities. The closest one I was able to locate near your zip code is:

NANCY MODGLIN , DVM
HOLISTIC OPTIONS VETERINARY CARE
25837 BUSINESS CENTER DR, STE. C
REDLANDS , CA 92374
Phone: (NNN) NNN-NNNN

I would suggest you call her and ask about her views on cat litter issues.

Hope that helps!
