What is Methigel Urinary Acidifier?
Methigel is a supplemental source of DL-Methionine and aids in maintaining a low urine pH. When combined with a proper diet, Methigel helps maintain a healthy, natural urinary tract.
Cats and Dogs (over one year of age)
- Helps eliminate urinary tract infections
- Treats bladder infections
- Aids in controlling urine odors
- Easy to administer
How it Works:
Methigel's active ingredient is DL-Methionine, an amino acid that acidifies your pet's urine. Since bacteria don't thrive in an acid environment, this helps fight infections.
Methigel should not be given to animals with severe liver, kidney or pancreatic disease. It should not be used with other urinary acidifying products. This product is not intended for use in pregnant or nursing pets. Give Methigel with food, since it may cause gastrointestinal upset when fed on an empty stomach.
Active ingredients per teaspoon (6 grams)
What is this product used for:
Methigel helps maintain normal urine pH, which may reduce the occurrence of crystal formation. It also helps control the odor from canine and feline urine residues.
Methigel is a non-prescription (OTC) product containing 480mg DL-Methionine per teaspoon (6 grams).
How this product should be used:
Administer orally. The usual dose in cats at least 1 year in age is teaspoonful daily. The usual dose in dogs at least 1 year in age is 1 teaspoonful daily. To stimulate taste interest, place a small amount of Methigel on your pet's nose or directly into the mouth.
What are the side effects:
Large doses of Methigel may cause gastrointestinal upset when fed on an empty stomach.
What special precautions are there:
Safe use in pregnant pets or pets intended for breeding has not been proven. If your pet's condition worsens or does not improve, stop product administration and consult your veterinarian. Administer during feeding or after your pet has eaten to reduce the incidence of gastrointestinal upset. This medication should not be given to pets with severe liver, kidney or pancreatic disease.
In the event of overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.
How should I store this product:
Store this medication in a cool, dry place. Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer needed. Keep this medication out of the reach of children and pets.
- Methigel is an extremely palatable supplemental substance. It can be given directly by mouth (see dosage below) or placed on your pet's nose to stimulate interest.
Large doses may cause gastrointestinal upset when fed on an empty stomach, so give this to your pet during or after feeding.

Helps my dog
I have had my dog on Methigel about a month. We aren't having as many crystals forming and she is feeling much better. She has had struvite and calcium stones. This seems to make it much easier for her to go to the bathroom. She loves the taste, I took an old 1 tsp. measuring spoon and fill it for her every other day. She takes it without any problem and she doesn't have the bad odor caused by bladder infections. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Reduced My Cat's PH Level W/OExpensive Rx Food
One of cats had severe crystals and, after spending $1,300 for two emergency visits, the vet insisted on a very expensive prescription food...which the cat would NOT eat. After doing some research, I found this product, which contains the same ingredient in found the food. I smear it on his leg each night and he licks it off. (Other cats will eat it off plate!)
Out new vet also had never heard of these kind of supplements, but when testing our cat found his PH to be 100% normal after going through about six tubes with no side effects.
Many people love their cats, but cannot afford $4 per can for prescription cat food that they must feed their cat for the rest of it's life! Or they have other cats and separate feeding is impossible. Again, this is the SAME acidifying ingredient found in Rx food. It is odd more vets do not know about it.

This is a great product that I highly recommend. My dog has had urine blockages since, a puppy. Used another product, but upset his stomach. I used this and in two days my dog was much better, with pain relief. I only keep my dog on it until his blockage is gone. He loves, loves, loves, the taste. Gently, licks off my finger. If your dog squats and finds it hard to urinate do try this product!

My cat loves this product
It seems to work well and my cat comes running for it. My only question is judging just how much to give and not over doing a good thing.
