“Smart” litter additive can help detect urinary tract problems

cat litter additiveWe are starting to see a number of new “smart” products for pets that offer the benefit of early detection of various health problems. We cannot stress enough that these products do NOT replace the need for annual – and preferably twice annual – exams by your pet’s veterinarian. Keep in mind that each cat or dog year equals five to seven human years – so that is a long time to go without seeing the doctor.

One such “smart” product is Ultra Monthly Monitor. This product detects a LOW or HIGH PH balance in your cat’s urine which could be an indication of a urinary tract infection, bladder stones or bladder infection.

Ultra Monthly Monitor comes in crystal form and is poured on top of newly-replaced litter in the litter box. After your cat uses the litter box, the product’s color will signal if your cat’s urine has a low, normal or high PH balance using a color-coded scale. If the crystals are an abnormal color, it is recommended that you contact your veterinarian.
