Answer by  ashley31 (263)

Lower ph prescription cat foods are to prevent urinary tract infections in cats that are prone to them, especially intact male cats. Untreated this can lead to urinary crystals that can be painful and dangerous to your cat.

There is not one certain diet to lower ph in cats. One thing is for certain; always provide plenty of water in a separate dish. Serve canned food once daily.


Answer by  geogre (90)

Some good cat foods with a lower pH for cats are sold by Iams, Eukanuba and Purina. Also, have your vet prescribe one you can't get from the store is the problems persist. If you need this food because your cat has a severe urinary tract issue, they may need an additional supplement if it hasnt cleared up.

You should talk to your vet about specific foods that will help with that. Hill's Prescription Diet makes a food that helps with that.
