My 13yr old female spayed cat has, for the past 12 months, been having problems with spraying and peeing around the house. She has always been a bit of a sensitive flower but despite being given all the attention, care, food and shelter she has always had and wanted, she seemed to go through a phase of being especially upset, and the weeing seemed to be stress-induced, possibly triggered by a bout of cystitis.
I took her to the vet who looked for problems including tumours but she was found to be in top condition. The only explanation I could see was perhaps a food issue(allergy, sensitivity), stress(too many foxes or other cats in her neighbourhood all of a sudden or some kind of mental issue (old age, dementia or something).
I've tried other products designed to relieve stress in cats, including some incredibly expensive vet prescribed food(£28 for 2KG!!!!) and none of these things have worked.
Of course until I try a long process of elimination I won't know for sure that these pills are solely responsible. But she has been on one a day sprinkled into her Felix(we keep her on one brand now with a little added water to make a gravy to ward off cystitis problems from dehydration) for a month now and she has shown a drastic improvement. We also keep her in, now she stays in for most of the day and has a 3-4hr session out in the garden, rather than the 10-12hrs she used to have.

Before she would seem distressed and unhappy, yeowling to go out every five minutes. When outside she wouldn't use her dirt box but she would go to every available bare patch of soil and squat there, or she would walk around and scratch a circuit of bare patches into the grass. In the house she would wee on everything if she was in a particularly agitated mood, on shopping bags, chairs, door frames, sofa cushions. We couldn't trust her anywhere, and she used to be perfectly consistent, she would ask if she needed to go out and use the dirt box I have set up in a flowerbed for her.

For nearly a month now she has shown a steady improvement and although we now keep a litter box indoors for her she is trustworthy in all areas. I tried Cystaid and Cystaid Plus but neither seemed to have the same effect. They do have slightly different ingredients as far as I could tell from the labels.

So, all I can say is that since starting my cat on Cystophan capsules she has shown a marked improvement. But I cannot guarantee it is from the pills alone. However if you and your cat are suffering the same problems as we were then it might be worth a try. Just be aware that my cat doesn't actually have cystitis, but some kind of irritation that presents like cystitis without some of the symptoms. If your cat DOES have the usual cystitis symptoms you should seek veterinary advice.

Hope this helps.

My cat gets stress related cystitis and last time she got it she was actually passing a small amount of blood. we recently took on a rescue dog from my workplace and knew this would really upset the cat initially (she has lived with a dog before and settled). i started her on the two tablets daily for 2weeks before bringing the dog home then dropped down to one per day once the dog arrived. after a few days of the dog being home my cat started showing cystitis signs, i immediately upped the dose to two capsules daily again and the cystitis resolved. it was that quick i really couldn't believe it! we are obviously doing everything else to keep the cat happy e.g. making sure she has hiding places and keeping the dog away when she's eating etc but shes quite stressy at times so i really think it was the cystophan that did it. still early days as only took the dog home two weeks ago but happy so far as they seem to be getting used to each other and there have been no further signs of cystitis fingers crossed!

Our 10 year old cat had cystitis again and again, the antibiotics and anti-inflammatorys from the vets were costing the earth. This product was recommended to us and 6 months down the line she hasn't had a single episode! Much cheaper to buy here than direct from the vet too. I would recommend trying this to anyone who's cat suffers from cystitis, the alternatives like prescription food are so expensive and this really works!!!

By giving my cat 2 tablets a week, the cystitis that kept reoccurring has stayed away. I was getting these tablets from the vet but after finally finding out they were available without a prescription I found them on Amazon at a fraction of the price the vet was charging. If your cat is suffering from regular bouts of cystitis then these tablets combined with wet food is the answer, well it worked for my cat.

My cats suffers from cystitis and nothing really helped - she didn't like pills the vet prescribed and would rather starve than have them in her food. Since using this she has no problems at all. She likes the taste and tucks into her food. She is much calmer and the cystitis has cleard up - something the vet couldn't manage to do ! Highly recommended

My cat has been very poorly and has cost us a fortune in vet bills, lesson don't keep your male cat on dry food alone they need more wet food to keep the bladder functioning. However these tablets really helped after a dose of pain killers, by giving one a day so far the urine infection has not returned and after a urine samples less crystal formation. I will continue to give my cat these now and I can't recommend them enough if your cats suffers with what humans would call cystitis .Good quality product great value it is exactly the same product the vet prescribed and cheaper and they never tell you that you can buy this on line.

Haven't purchased these from Amazon because I can get it slightly cheaper elsewhere, but were given the first 30 capsules from our vet (extortionate price) after our cat's 2nd bout of cystitis. 2 x daily for first 2 weeks, then drop down to 1 x day.

1st bout of FIC was 2 months ago and I only just caught the problem in time by taking cat to the vet 24 hours before due appointment (for something seemingly unrelated). But now I wonder if scratching his forehead until it bled was because he was in trouble passing urine. Vet told us cat could have died within 24/48 hours if we hadn't brought him in early. I was utterly shocked and upset. 2nd bout I saw the 'signs' - a crying miaow after coming in from the garden and a paw mark in his litter tray with nothing left behind. But I'd give anything not to put our 11 year old cat through the stress of being anaesthetised to have his bladder emptied. Vet recommended this product and our cat will now have it for the rest of his life, along with his special Hills urinary stress diet which, after 2 months, I'm now having to mix with a spoonful of his favourite Felix food to induce him to eat it - along with a tablespoon of water with each feed. Cats with this problem should NOT be given dry food if at all possible - WET only with added water to make sure they flush their bladder through especially if, like ours, the cat will simply not drink from any source.

I'm a novice at looking after a cat because he has been adopted by us from my mother who had to go into a care home. Big changes for him ... from a completely different environment - a house where it was very quiet, (he slept all the time in Mum's garden room), from an area where there was no traffic, no noise, to one where there is always noise (people working in gardens. light aircraft going over), occasional road traffic, and a house where there is always something going on - TV, us talking (or shouting!). I feel we bear some responsibility for his condition but the alternative was for him to probably spend the rest of his life in a cats home - where he would have been left and unloved. At least with us, he is very loved and cared for and we will do whatever it takes to keep him healthy. So far so good with Cystophan which is now administered once a day. But I have to disguise it well in his food ... if he sees any white flecks in it, he will not eat it!
