High level support for feline urinary health.

A healthy urinary tract is important for a healthy cat. Interactions between several body systems including the bladder and nervous systems can affect your cat's urinary health. External influences in today's busy environment can also affect your cat's state of mind.

Normal healthy bladders have a layer of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) coating them. This layer protects the bladder from direct exposure to urine. Urine activates sensory nerve fibres which the brain perceives as uncomfortable.

Cystophan helps to support and preserve the protective glycosaminoglycan (GAG) layer of the bladder.  It also contains L-tryptophan which is used in the brain to make serotonin, the happy hormone.

Cystophan contains:
N-acetyl D-glucosamine - acts as a building block for GAGs.
Hyaluronic acid - one of the main components of the protective GAG layer that lines the bladder.
L-tryptophan - converted to serotonin, the happy hormone.
Artificial chicken flavouring - to improve palatability and compliance.
Cystophan is the first nutritional supplement to provide this combination of ingredients. Reducing the number of products your cat needs to take.

Directions for use:
The capsules can be given whole or opened, and the palatable contents sprinkled onto food.

Initially administer according to the guidelines below for at least two weeks:
Cats =3kg      1 capsule daily
Cats >3kg      2 capsules daily

For long-term maintenance, administer according to the guidelines below:
Cats =3kg      1 capsule every other day
Cats >3kg      1 capsule daily

Give for as long as considered necessary or as advised by your veterinary surgeon.
Cystophan is available in tubs of 30 and 240 capsules.

N-acetyl D-glucosamine  (125mg)

Can this be used on pregnant cats? It is not recommended to use Cystophan during pregnancy or lactation. While the use of L-tryptophan in pregnant animals has not been documented, pregnant and lactating women are advised to avoid L-tryptophan supplementation. -- Can this be added to food or water? We advise, if possible, giving the capsule whole or opened and mixed with food; although Cystophan could be mixed with a small amount of water to make a ‘paste’ if needed.
