Natural stain and urine odor cleaner

Fizzion Pet Stain and Odor Cleaner, with spray bottle: Cat behaviorist Jackson Galaxy says this works best for removing urine smell.

Nature’s Miracle is the enzyme cleaner I use for stains and odors, however the fragrance seems to have changed for the worse over the years. With the exception of their hardwood floor solution — that one doesn’t smell like a fake perfume.

Beneficial supplements for cats

  • Probiotics: Pet Flora (High success rate in resolving pet digestion problems – vomiting, irritable bowel, etc. See Vitality Science website.) Doesn’t require refrigeration.
  • Probiotics + Enzymes: Wholistic Feline Digest Plus (powdered form). Overall great probiotic-enzyme product for cat digestion and wellbeing that happens to include two probiotics known to support kidney health.  (I recommended keeping it in the refrigerator as often as possible to keep the microbes alive.)
  • Probiotics for Kidney Disease: Azodyl Renal Function Support. Veterinary probiotic supplement for cats and dogs with kidney disease. This is a premium-priced product, often prescribed by vets. The positive reviews are encouraging if you have a CKD cat.
  • Enzymes to Add to Cat Food: NUSENTIA Enzyme Miracle. Great to use if you can’t feed raw food! Most of the power of raw food is in the enzymes that would otherwise be destroyed by cooking.
  • Iceland Pure Unscented Sardine-Anchovy Oil (designed for pets)
  • Nordic Natural Omega-3 Pet fish oil (designed for pets)
  • Carlson fish oil (also for humans)
  • BioSuperfood or BioPreparation (microalgae with anti-inflammatory properties and a reputation for helping with all kinds of cat illness)
