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.

For:

Cats and Dogs (over one year of age)

Benefits:
  • 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.

Cautions:

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.

Brand Name:

Methigel

Generic Name:

DL-Methionine

Active ingredients per teaspoon (6 grams)

DL-Methionine

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.

Availability:

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 Throw away any medication that is outdated or no longer needed.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.

Customer Reviews
Methigel Urinary Acidifier is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Sooo-Far--Sooo-Good" This has Done The Job for my female cat who had very severe UTI #urinary tract infection#. The Vet would put her on an Anti-biotic and as soon as the Prescription was empty, she would get the infection back, and just as Severe. "It has been over seven months, since she has seen a Vet, and she has Been taking the Methigel the whole time. (NO PROBLEMS). NOTE: I read the prescribed dosage and pre-cautions, and decided that i would only administer (2) twice a week. This has worked for her. I feared the Calcium precaution, so i cut dosage and upped the amount of Calcium in her diet (food). Yes Doc's * there is a "method to my madness" regarding this APPROACH. IF THEY FORM IT IN THE "LOWER" THEY NEED IT IN THE "UPPER", digestive tracts that is. NOTE: i did Change diet to 90% soft food, along with this medication, Reducing the hard food intake. THANKS !

Q&A

Uti

Can this be mixed with canned food for complete consumption?
Asked by: Sandi
Large doses may cause gastrointestinal upset when fed on an empty stomach, so give this to your pet during or after feeding so mixing with canned or dry food will be fine. If it is a (picky) cat after they are done eating you can put the jell on the back of their paw. Cats are very clensy so they will start to clean (lick) the back of the paw immediately.

how long should i give methigel urinary acidifier to my 5 year old dog for urinary infection?

Asked by: carolina10
Methigel is not used to treat a urinary infection. It is used to promote a healthy urinary tract. However, if an infection occurs, the pet will require an antibiotic. You will need to have your pet examined by your veterinarian and he/she will determine the antibiotic to use.

Is it OK to use this product long term?

Asked by: Kelly
Only under the supervision of a vetinarian. If the urine ph gets too low, it can create calcium oxilate stones so monitoring ph level while using this product is my advice and your vet can help you with that.
