High level support for feline urinary health

A recenthypothesis suggests that Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (FIC) may be due to analteration in the bladder's neuronal supply, the protective glycosaminoglycan(GAG) layer and components within the urine. Cats with FIC are known to havequalitative or quantitative abnormalities in their protective GAG layer, andthey have been shown to have decreased urine concentrations of GAGs and increasedbladder wall permeability. GAG supplements aim to restore this defective GAGlayer.

Cystophan contains:

  • N-acetyl D-glucosamine
    A GAG precursor which acts as the building block for GAGs such as chondroitin sulphate.
  • Hyaluronic acid
    One of the main components of the protective GAG layer, acting as a scaffold for the whole structure.
  • L-tryptophan
    An amino acid which is converted into serotonin. Serotonin is an inhibitory neurotransmitter which regulates mood and anxiety. L-tryptophan has been shown to reduce stress-related behaviour and anxiety levels in cats.
  • Artificial chicken flavouring
    To improve palatability and compliance.

  • Seems to be working.
    I started giving my elderly little cat Cystophan after she'd recovered from a bad urinary infection, and my Vet recommended it as maintenance to keep her waterworks healthy. She takes one capsule every other day and swallows it quite easily, this could also be broken in half and sprinkled over food. So far thankfully there have been no further health problems.
