Cystaid Plus for Cats 30 capsules


Lower urinary tract disorders affect approximately one percent of the cat population. A survey shows that the most common causes of FLUTD: Feline Idiopatic Cystitis (FIC) (63%), Cystic calculi/uroliths (14%), Anatomical defects (11%), Behavioural (9%), Neoplasia (2%), Urinary Tract Infection (1%)

Diagnosis and Management of lower urinary tract disorder.

The most important element of diagnosis is taking a good history, followed by a detailed physical examination of the cat. Then urinalysis and culture, radiography and contrast studies can be performed to look for infectious agents and uroliths. Some cats can be treated with dietary changes and a small percentage will require antibiotics. Unfortunately a percentage of cats with crystaluria, especially oxalate uroliths, will require surgical removal. By far the majority of cats will prove not to have any obvious clinical cause of lower urinary tract disorder, these cats are assumed to have FIC by a process of exclusion.

Dietary management of FIC through supplementation

Cystaid contains molecules that supplement the bladder’s muco-polysaccharid GAG chains. These chains form a protective mucin layer for the umbrella mucosal cells, preventing epithelial contact with the irritant urinary toxins and pathogens.

Supplementation with Cystaid helps:

1) Replace and maintain a healthy GAG bladder mucosal mucin layer

2) Stimulates increased GAG production by mucosal cells

3) Decreases bladder wall permeability thus reducing bladder wall inflammation.

Dietary change: In addition to using Cystaid, benefits may be seen with increasing the water consumption by changing to moist diet, improving the number and site of litter trays and reducing the stress levels.

Composition: Each capsule contains 125 mg N-Acetyl D-Glucosamine (99% purity)

Administration: Cystaid can be given whole or sprinkled and mixed with the food. 2 capsules a day during the first two weeks 1 capsule a day for maintenance
