    Keeping Cats Healthy
    June 3, 2024
    Three of my cats have urinary tract health problems. Since giving them this product, along with urinary health cat food, they have not had any further UTIs. And they love this gel; they think it's a treat!

    Recommended by my vet to help in uti treatment. Easy to use. Other than my kitty flipping it off his paw, it seems to be agreeable with his system.

    Helps keep kitties' urinary tract healthy and free from struvite crystals. Crystal-prone kitties can be fed very high quality canned with just a little dry cat food with a little of this Methigel on the dry. We also give dry vit. E and nutritional yeast to keep cats healthy.

    Review for Methigel (4.25 oz)

    My cat loves the flavor of this so it's very easy to get her to take it and it really solved her digestive problems. I can tell she is much more comfortable now.

    Works very well
    March 31, 2015
    Our vet recommended this for our Siamese when his Crystal issue came back. After using it, my boy did not have to have another procedure done. The situation cleared up and is remaining that way.
    I highly recommend this product to any male cat owner who has the okay from their vet.
    This site is also the cheapest place to get it - most times! Every so often that 'big' place will have a major sale so do check around.
    I had to mix it in the wet food until one time my boy just started to eat it before I mixed it. So, sometimes they like it, sometimes they don't. I will not taste it myself! The smell alone does not appeal to me!!

    Great product
    February 6, 2015
    My old Newfie girl kept getting UTI's and crystals in her urine. This product has illuminated these problems. A teaspoon of this gel on her food in the morning is all it takes. The price here is exactly half the price I was paying at my Vets office. Thank you, Entirely Pets, for selling products we can afford....

    It works and my cat begs for it!

    My cat has had serious UT problems and surgery. Methigel (1/2 tsp. after each meal) and D-Mannose (1/4 tsp. mixed with each meal) has helped to stabilize his condition resulting in fewer flare-ups.

    Methigel easier than a special diet
    June 28, 2014
    After my Dachshund had to have surgery for bladder stones, the vet wanted us to give her a special diet. When she absolutely refused the special (very costly) foods, the vet said to give my pup a teaspoon of this each day to make sure her urine was adequately acidic. It has seemed to work well. My girl has had no further problems with stones. Although this medicine was rather expensive at the vet' s office, it is much more reasonable in cost at Entirely Pets.

    Methigel has worked great!
    June 14, 2014
    I started using Methigel about 5 years ago. My female Chow has a history of developing struvite bladder stones. I give her Methigel each morning to keep her bladder well balanced and to help reduce her production of bladder stones. It is my belief that the active ingredient DL- Methionine keeps my chow's acid bladder level normal so she doesn't bladder stones anymore.

    My male cat has had this for a couple of years, vet recommended for urinary tract difficulties. I know it has definitely helped keep such problems in check and would recommend it for all male cats.

    This product is quite effective in stopping the formation of deposits in the kidneys of our cat.
    We use this product in conjunction with a diet of canned food and occasional dry treats.
    I recommend this product in consultation with your vet for dosage to help eliminate kidney stones in cats.

    Use of Metigel
    March 30, 2014
    Of my 6 cats, 3 have urinary problems when they eat foods that are not specificly made for cats with sensitive urinary tracts. The vet recommended Methigel to help maintain the PH balance, and it works great. I put just a tiny amount (a small pea-size dab) in the cats' soft food at each serving and have had no more urinaty problems since using the Methigel. The dry food that I use is specifically made for cats with urinary tract problems, but all the cats enjoy a treat of soft food, too. The Metigel makes that possible.

    Dog loves it!
    March 29, 2014
    I give Methigel to my dog with every feeding. My veterinarian recommended it because this breed is prone to developing bladder stones and so far she hasn't had any. She is 3 1/2 years old and I hope she achieves a ripe old age without needing surgery for stones. And thank you for the prompt service, and for having this product in stock. I like the auto ship option also.

    I have recommended Methigel to several others that own Miniature Schnauzers.

    it works, and my cat likes it!
    February 16, 2014
    My UTI prone male cat will literally sit in the kitchen each morning and ask for his medicine. He licks this straight from the tube. Without it, he has chronic UTI issues, and would be prone to peeing (in inappropriate places, I might add) ALOT. If you've got a similar problem, give it a try (with a diagnosed UTI issue). The other nice thing is that I am on autoship, and I just order several tubes at once, and then they automatically ship me another batch every 4 months. Love that!

    excellent urine acidifier
    January 23, 2014
    we use this on our 28 pound cat currently and have used it for years on another cat. this is a urine acidifier for cats who tend to create stones that block urine. as cat owners know that kidney stone blockage can be fatal within 24 hours in particular in a male cat whose urinary tract is thinner than a females. our vet recommended giving a thumbnail size amount twice a day to Bret and so far in the last year his urine test show he is not making kidney stones. Bret also takes other medication that relaxes his bladder and lessens his tendency to make kidney stones.
    I order three tubes per time I order since at twice a day I usually need one tube per month. Always check with your vet but for us, this is inexpensive effective method for acidifying the urine and reducing the chances of your cat making stones.

    excellent product
    December 29, 2012
    I have given this to my cat daily for several years. He had developed a serious urinary tract infection that required hospitalization and the vet recommended this product to prevent a reoccurance. The cat has never had another episode of the infection. the cat likes the taste (and the dogs try to get to it before the cat does!)

    My dog's all better
    May 30, 2012
    My dog is finally free from recurrent bladder infections. I tried other products to help acidify her urine, but she kept getting bladder infections, nonetheless. Methigel however worked. For the first time in 2 years she is free of recurrent bladder infections!

    This is a great product
    May 5, 2012
    My vet recommends Methigel for cats prone to crystals who don't respond to prescription diets. He also recommends giving the cats distilled water to drink. The methigel acidfies the cats' urine, and in many cases allows the cats to eat a regular food and yet not have problems with cystitis or crystals. It has worked great and I have recommended it to friends!

    I first learned of Methigel when my cat had serious urinary issues. It did wonders for him. I learned that I could buy it over the internet for much less cost so I began doing it. I've been giving it to him every day for several months now along with Wysong Uretic and distilled water and no more issues.

    Our cat had to have treatment including several nites at the vet. for kidney stones. Vet suggested Methigel plus special food and the cat has been several years now with no further problems.
