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)
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.
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).
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.
Large doses of Methigel may cause gastrointestinal upset when fed on an empty stomach.
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.
