Description

Uri-Balance (formally Methigel) supports good urinary tract health when dietary changes are impractical, as with multiple cat households or refusal by finicky eaters. It's specially formulated to appeal to cats in an easy-to-administer gel. The gel formulation assures more accurate amounts than conventional tablets, and the convenient tube size allows economic dispensing.­

Many types of bacteria require a stable and relatively neutral pH level in order to survive. Thus, when you lower the pH in your pet's urine, many bacteria are killed as they can no longer thrive as the urine flows normally through your cat's urinary tract. This normal cleansing naturally eliminates the bacteria and the infection without having to resort to specific antibacterial drugs, Uri-Balance provides a natural solution to the acidic imbalances returning normal bladder and urinary tract function.

Ingredients

Corn syrup, malt syrup, white petrolatum, dl-methionine, soybean oil, cane molasses, mineral oil, cod liver oil, water, methylcellulose and sodium benzoate (preservative).

55 Works great for my Barney
Verified Purchase

By on 14 December 2021

It’s easy to squeeze a bit in Barneys mouth, although He gets a treat for having it. I could smell how strong his wee was before I bought this, so was fingers crossed it would help him. I’m happy to say it works a treat. I cannot smell anything anymore. I’m over the moon because Barney is 13, so it’s keeping him ticking along nicely. I definitely recommend this for a first step.

55 This product works!
Verified Purchase

We have tried all sorts of medicines for our cat Barney, none of which unfortunately, had any real effect. That was, until we tried Uri-Balance. You only need to put a wee lump of the cat's nose which she licked off easily. Within a couple of days, she was her normal self, no more blood in her urine and content. We now won't use anything else other than this product - give it a try on your cat, I don't think you will be disappointed...

Dog with leidhmans

Linda Nandlall

Would this break up bladder crystals

  • VioVet Staff

This entirely depends on what the crystals are in your dog's urine. Some crystals are more likely to form in alkaline urine and some acidic urine. I recommend discussing with your vet whether this supplement is appropriate as it will depend on the type of crystal they have found.

Night wee.

Pippa

8mth puppy wakes 3/4 am every morning for a wee. And free will only sleep until 5-30. Help.1924

  • VioVet Staff

This is more likely to be a habit than a medical situation. Ideally you should get your vet to check if there is any medical reason for your puppy to need to urinate so frequently, but it would be more usual to be a caring, attentive owner and a puppy which likes attention. I would be tempted to change how you handle the night-time routine, but you need more advice than I can offer by email.Again your vet might be able to help with this, or advise you who locally you can ask. Good luck, I think you deserve some sleep!

Kidney function tests?

mel

Please can you tell me, is it necessary for my dog to have regular 4 monthly blood tests for kidney function becsause she is using this product? She has no history of kidney disease.

  • VioVet Staff

This product should not cause any trouble with the kidneys. However it is not recommended to be given to animals which have poor kidneys anyway. Possibly your vet wants to ensure that if there is any sign of reduced kidney function developing, you will know about and can act accordingly. I would say that most people do not have any such blood tests done when using this product and it does not seem to be associated with any particular problems. If in doubt, talk to your vet about this.
