Forgive me as I have missed the beginning of this email thread. With respect to urinary crystals diet is huge. Every cat that has ever been brought to me with crystals has responded to diet with complete eradication of crystals (make sure you know what type of crystals you're dealing though). Raw diet is the key. If you can't do raw, the high quality canned foods like Fromm, Go, Wellness work quite well. You can still do some dry but it has to be the good stuff - Orijen or Fromm would be my recommendation. I always add some cranberry to it if they'll take it just to avoid UTIs. It takes about four weeks if the crystals are bad and in the meantime you have to make sure they do not become obstructed (that often takes vet strength food or catheter or suprapubic taps.
Hope this helps. Jenny On 12/8/11, dlg...@windstream.net <dlg...@windstream.net> wrote: > In the course of conversation with Karen today, I mentoned that Hojey had > crystas.
