What’s the Best Cat UTI Natural Remedy?

image for: The Best Cat UTI Natural Remedies

A cat UTI natural remedy might be a surprising solution for your kitty’s litter box problems.

Does your cat suffer from frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and bladder problems?

Does your cat:

  • Have litter box trouble?
  • Have dark and cloudy urine or show blood?
  • Strain to urinate?
  • Drink more water than usual?
  • Lick his or her urinary openings?
  • Show lethargy, vomiting or lack of appetite?

These cat bladder symptoms could be caused by a UTI or something more serious such as:

  • Bladder or kidney stones
  • Non-infectious bladder inflammation (sterile cystitis)
  • A “foreign body”
  • Kidney failure
  • Diabetes
  • Bladder tumor.

Take your kitty to the vet immediately if these symptoms present.

Most veterinarians prescribe antibiotics, urinary acidifiers, or increased water intake for UTIs.

However, a veterinarian trained in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) may recommend the addition of a holistic supplement, such as PET | TAO Soothe Bladder Supplement.

What is in the Soothe Bladder Supplement?

A supplement including cranberry juice extract, juniper berry, marshmallow root, and uva ursi would most effectively help your pup.

Each ingredient’s benefits are best when combined with other compounds.

Uva Ursi

Uva ursi, also known as Arctostaphylos uva-ursi, is a plant with leaves used for medicine.

The main medicinal compound uva ursi is arbutin.

In a high-acid urinary tract, the natural chemical compound becomes hydroquinone, an antiseptic, and glucose.

The high tannin content makes the plant helpful in urinary tract problems.

In vitro studies using extracts of uva ursi leaf demonstrate antimicrobial activity against UTI-causing organisms such as C. albicans, E. coli, S. aureus, and Proteus vulgaris, and others.

In one study, prophylactic use of uva ursi extract over a period of a year proved effective in preventing recurrent cystitis.


In 1578, herbalist Henry Lyte documented using cranberries to treat a variety of diseases.

In the 1840s, German scientists discovered the benefits of cranberries on the urinary tract.

By the 1930s, scientists were studying cranberries in clinical trials.

In 1984, a study of people and mice showed consuming cranberry juice prevented E. coli bacteria from colonizing on cell walls.

Marshmallow Root

The Greek name for marshmallow root is Althea, which means “to heal.”

Not to be confused with the marshmallows we see in the grocery store, which no longer contain the plant, Greek physician Hippocrates used marshmallow root to heal wounds.

The plant helps minimize discomfort associated with kidney stones.

Marshmallow root is beneficial when combined with other diuretic herbs for kidney treatments or urinary problems.

Juniper Berry

Junipers are coniferous plants ranging in size from tall trees to low-spreading shrubs.

The juniper berry is actually the female seed cone, which looks similar to a blueberry but may be red or orange in color.

Juniper berries historically treat tapeworms, colic, urinary and gastrointestinal infections.

The berries’ antioxidant effect is proven in scientific studies.

The oil can boost antioxidants in the body such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase and glutathione peroxidase.
