My 11year old cat gets UTI’s. I feed her Hills Science Diet UTI food, but sometimes she still gets an infection... she has one now.. suggestions please..
Thank you for your question! You're looking in the right place. Kidney treats can help, along with PET | TAO's Soothe Bladder supplement. It is labeled for dogs due to the hard tablets it comes in, but it's safe for cats - you can crush the tablets into powder. Learn more about how Soothe Bladder works here.

What is the dehydrate to fully hydrated ratio? I home cook for my pups I would like to use this product in place of fresh raw kidney. If the pup requires 1.5 ounces per day of fresh raw; how much dehydrated product would you recommend?
Thank you for your question, and for your interest in Food Therapy and homecooking! If your dog requires 1.5 oz per day of raw kidney, we recommend using 0.5oz daily of PET | TAO's Freeze Dried Kidney Treats. If you're interested in homecooking, you can check out PET | TAO's blog and recipes here: https://pettao.com/pet-food-recipes/
Will it help dissolve stones??
Thank you for your question! Feeding Kidney may support the kidney and bladder, but is not known to dissolve stones on its own. That being said, freeze dried kidney is part of a well-rounded regimen of alternative treatments for pets suffering from kidney and bladder issues. This regimen includes Eastern Food Therapy (food, treats, and supplements) and Eastern Herbals. A complement to the food therapy program is an herbal formula called Crystal Stone Formula, which supports the dissolution of stones by clearing Heat and Damp, resolving crystals, and supporting the bladder's normal healing process. Crystal Stone Formula requires a veterinary authorization, which you can request here: https://tcvmpet.com/pages/get-an-authorization. The food therapy products do not require authorization, just the Eastern Herbals.
