I started feeding my 13+ (strictly indoor all his life) cat Purina Pro Plan Urinary tract formula (morning) and metabolism formula (afternoon) canned food about a month ago. The first week he was fine. The second week he started having a little diarrhea and then he started projectile vomiting a greenish-yellow bile for 3 days in a row until I finally took him to the vet. $180 later my vet told me that my cat had unusually high amount of Spirochetes in his gut. Prior to feeding him Purina I had always feed him Iams indoor hard cat food but he lost his front teeth and couldn't digest the food as well anymore. After reading all the other reviews I am totally confident that the Purina is the culprit. All cans aren't due to expire until 2018.

But the foods, none of them , "dissolve" crystals. They help create a healthy environment while the moisture keeps the bladder well flushed, so eventually, the urine stays free of debris, because the crystals are peed out, and not too many are forming, not because they are being "dissolved". I agree I misspoke when I said "dissolve" as "flush" is a better term. I know about the genetics as I have read pretty extensively on it and which is why it comes up out of nowhere as the cat gets older...mine didn't show signs until the age of 5. I disagree regarding the solution is simply "hydration" as some cats have chemical imbalances that lead to variances in urinary pH. It's physiologically impossible for all cats (just like humans) to have the same molecular makeup, so treating a symptom or condition uniformly is of course a ridiculous proposition...and where I have huge issues with the one-size-fits-all remedy being pushed on this forum by Pierson's posse. I do agree that feeding a cat a corn-laden diet long term is not the right alternative, but it clearly is over the short term if one wants to correct the urinary tract acidity imbalances....although some cats may be unable to achieve the proper acidity without being on one of the prescription diets. It's certainly feasible if there is an issue biologically and without any other viable alternatives would not hesitate to use it to keep my cat alive and somewhat healthy. As an FYI, some cats do tolerate some brands better than others. Purina ProPlan does not contain corn (some corn starch and wheat gluten to create/thicken the gravy) like Royal Canin or Hills' Prescription Diet and while it does contain some salt, it's the 11th ingredient listed...just before Caramel Color which is used sparingly in food products to color up from gray. I can already hear the tin-foil hats shrieking but would urge rational cat owners to read (a lot of varying sources) and be open to all sides of the argument...ultimately utilizing what's best overall for your particular cat's health.
