Natural Animal's Ester-C for cats goes way beyond standard Vitamin-C. Natural Animal's Ester-C is a uniquely formulated vitamin C in a calcium ascorbate mineral blend for animals. It is non-acidic and pH balanced to avoid stress commonly associated with acidic vitamin C supplements. Ester C is a nutrient for your pet's proper growth and maintenance and is safe in megadosages. You will normally see results in as little as seven to ten days. For added mobility, especially in older animals, Ester-C gives your pet an edge.

I'm writing this because maybe it will help someone else's kitty....My cat is about 13 years old and has a compromised immune system. She gets sick a lot--mostly ear infections & herpesvirus outbreaks/upper respiratory infections, especially in winter, when the house is closed up. I'd been giving her lysine for around 5 years, which worked great, then added fish oil and probiotics last year when she started getting a little worse. They all helped tremendously, but when she started losing ground again this winter, I added the Ester-C powder offered here. (I take vitamin C myself but never thought to use it on her until I saw it here; and I knew that Ester-C is buffered.) It's working: she stays healthy as long as I dose her around 200-225 mg at least once, but sometimes twice, a day (she weighs about 8-9 pounds). When I've stopped giving it to her (to see whether it really makes a difference), she gets sick, so I'm sticking with it through winter. My only issue is palatability--I can't hide it in food and have to disguise it in different liquids (unsalted tuna juice, chicken broth & fat, etc) to dose her. She takes it begrudgingly (because I give her a treat afterwards). Any suggestions on how to further disguise it would be greatly appreciated. I'm buying roasted chicken flavoring next week from a local compounding pharmacy--we'll see what happens with that! :)
