Health Questions & Answers



Good afternoon Dr. Wilson. I have a fixed, male cat who continues to have urinary issues. He has had to use a catheter twice in the past 3 years when he became blocked by the oxalate crystals. I have tried all the special diets, both the urinary formulas (like Science Diet cd and Royal Canine) and top of the line cat foods, but the problem continues to reoccur. Even when he is not blocked by crystals, he has swelling and often strains to pee, sometimes staying in the litter box for minutes while he slowly relieves himself. Even cranberry supplements, made especially for urinary health in animals, do not seem to have a lasting impact. I am a firm believer in your products, especially since beginning my dog on Promaxol two years ago and seeing the vitality and wellness restored in her. Can you please, please find something to help with this issue? My last resort is the surgery recommended by the vet to basically give my cat female parts so he doesn't have the swelling and blockage problem. This is expensive and comes with risks. I would much rather find something for him that can naturally help relax his overstressed urinary system and help prevent and dissolve those crystals. Please help!!!

Dear Heather,

Derma-IonX contains some remedies that are often used in Feline Urologic Syndrome. Derma-IonX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces inflammation, promotes healing, and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include probiotics and Omega 3,6,9. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your cat only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

Please let us know how you do.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
