Dr. Elsey’s Featured as Best Litter for Reducing FCoV
Beyond the obvious, cat litter serves many purposes. Since day one, our goal at Dr. Elsey’s has been to keep cats in their homes and using the litter box. Dr. Elsey’s was recently featured in a study by Dr. Diane Addie, that focuses on the transmission of the virus which causes feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). Not familiar with FIP? Read more about it at Dr. Addie’s website.
So, where does litter come into the equation? The virus can be spread through sharing litter trays with an infected cat. Thus, having a litter that has been proven to slow the rate of transmission is extremely important especially for multiple cat households. Having separate litter trays for each cat is an important factor in FCoV control in multi-cat households, as is the ability of a litter not to track—like Cat Attract™ litter.
We invite you to read the full report, but here is a quick synopsis:
- There is no need to invent an anti-viral cat litter: cat litters which inhibit FCoV already exist.
- Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract® cat litter was the best cat litter for reducing FCoV transmission, although even the best litter cannot wholly prevent FCoV infection.
So rest assured, Dr. Elsey’s Cat Attract® is the best litter for potential prevention of this unfortunate issue, in addition to its proven ability to drive litter box usage and keep our friends in loving homes.
