Some cats are extra sensitive to the
magnesium content in their diet, as well as to how acid or alkaline
their urine is as a result of their diet. These cats are prone to
feline lower urinary tract disease (formerly FUS). Struvite
uroliths and urethral plugs can be life threatening and quick
action must be taken. Along with a vet’s intervention to remove the
obstruction and empty the bladder, it is necessary to use a food
that maintains an acidic urine, and to avoid excess dietary
magnesium. Vegecat pH™ has been very successful in preventing
recurrences. It maintains urine at about pH 6.5. Recipes meet
nutrient levels established by the Association of American Feed
Control Official’s (AAFCO) Cat Food Nutrient Profile for adult
cats, without using any animal products. Vegecat pH, used exactly
as Vegecat, is designed for cats with a history of urinary tract
difficulties. Because these problems are so common in cats, and
because a vegan diet provides an extra challenge for cats prone to
this kind of problem, we highly recommend Vegecat pH for all vegan
cats, especially males. For detailed feeding information, download
the Vegecat pH™ instructions here. Available in 4 sizes – Small (6 oz. / 190g)

Works like a charm!
From Megan of Austin, Texas on .
My previous cat, Tigger, was prone to UTIs. When I found VegeCat pHi, I started adding it directly to her food (Evolution). That was the end of Tigger's UTIs.
My current cat, Katie, gets it stirred into her food (Ami and Evolution) just to be on the safe side. Katie's not prone to UTIs, but since she's on a vegan diet, I don't want to take any chances.
Vegan cat for 8 years
From Anonymous of Seattle, Washington on .
Our cat has done pretty well on this with the lentil-tofu recipe for the past 3 years. Never had a problem with it getting moldy.
I've never made the kibble
From Beth Sopko of New York, New York on .
I add this stuff to my cats' food (Evolution or Ami) in order to bring the pH down; I also use pH-sensing litter just to be sure. If I didn't use this, I'd be using vitamin C crystals, but they seem to prefer the taste of this because the vitamin C is tart and tangy.
Both cats are healthy, lean, and energetic, and believe me: if they showed any kind of health problems, I'd re-evaluate their diet.
Fantastic and Healthy!
From Edel Sanders of Oyster Bay Cove, New York on .
Our 3 cats love the recipes included with the VegeCat mix (especially the lentil one with some spirulina added) and are super healthy! They have been vegan for many years since kittenhood and enjoy both kibbles you sell as well. These are the healthiest, liveliest cats we have ever had. Thank you Hoana and VeganEssentials for making this cruelty-free possibility for our entire family!

I've had semi-success
From Matthew of St John's, Newfoundland and Labrador on .
First I'd like to say please dont listen to the first silly reviewer (sally). If you actually take the time to read what you are buying (like everyone should) before clicking then you'll know that this is not a food but a supplement. She also obviously didn't bother reading the instructions carefully either- her's grew mold because she didn't dry it out after baking. The recipe requires about 3 hours of drying time in the oven, so you can store it for a few weeks and have it stay fresh. How on earth did she miss all of this information!?
I have fun making this stuff! I don't mind the extra time it takes. However, I have mixed reviews from each of my (three) cats. They are still eating their regular meat-based food mixed with the VegeCatpH dry kibble (about half and half). One of my cats prefers the vegan food over the other food. One of them seems to be on the fence and the other will hardly touch the vegan stuff! Sadly, the vegan kibble is always the last to go at the bottom of the dish. :(
I've tried two of the wet food recipes (chickpea and lentil) and none of my cats will touch the stuff unless I mix it with regular canned food. And even then they don't go crazy for it! I seriously don't understand how anyone gets their cats to eat these recipes!
For now I am going to continue to make the vegan dry kibble until I've finished the rest of the supplement and if, by then, I am still getting the same mediocre results, then I'll try switching to AmiCat or something.
