Aptus Attapectin Review. (Pectin)

attapectin aptusOne of the many things I tried during our Diarrhea Drama was Aptus Attapectin. It consists of pectin and helps, according to the manufacturer, with minor gastrointestinal problems. 

Turned out that bacteria were causing their diarrhea, so pectin wasn’t really helping – which is fine, but I was annoyed about something else: it was a bloody (literally speaking) battle to get my cats to swallow any pill. I decided to give Attapectin a try when I read that you can dissolve it in water. Perfect, because it’s much easier to give Kajsa and Tessa liquids with syringes. It was, however, impossible to give Attapectin as a liquid: Dissolved in water, its texture was “porridge” and therefore too thick for a syringe.

Orion Pharma’s customer service was excellent and compensated me with a great parcel. They also recommended to use a bigger syringe next time. Great idea, but you can’t get any bigger from Finnish pharmacies.

Have you ever tried pectin with your cats? I’d love to hear your experiences, because Tessa and Kajsa are sometimes struggling with stomach problems.
