    Hello,
    Wondering if anyone has any experience with NutraCys+. Does it take a while to work or should it work more or less straight away?
    Thank you

    As it is a supplement it is likely to take time to be effective. Was this recommended by your vet? What is your cat's diagnosis/problem?

    I hate the way the website says things like 'recent studies have shown...' without linking to the study. You could try asking the maker. But I agree the above questions, did your vet recommend it and what's the problem?

    Yes, my vet prescribed it for my cat who has recurrent uti’s/inflammation, he’s a 1 year old neutered boy. Water sample didn’t show any bacteria or crystals, but it did have blood she said. I have given him filtered water only now just in case. She believes it’s stress/anxiety related

    Thank you, and yeah it is annoying. Prescribed by vet for recurrent uti/bladder inflammation believed to be caused by stress/anxiety.

    I haven't used that one, but Cystaid+ used to work quite quickly and was very effective for my cat as she suffered terribly with stress induced cystitis.

    I use d-mannose for these issues. Though she is on cosequin for cats as well and has been all her life, for bladder health.

    And of course, feed your cat a wet only diet, low in carbs, and high in meat. Meat is naturally acidifying, and carbs are just the opposite, raising the pH and inflammatory. Wet for obvious reasons, to keep him well hydrated and his bladder flushed out.

    I can't, I'm not in the UK but I believe there are threads on the subject. Check the stickies in the various cat sections. I feed a raw diet to my cats. :)

    Look for foods that don't contain a lot of junk. Avoid any sugar, grains, stuff like that. Fillers that can raise the carb content. Look for identified meat.
