Here are some answers to some to frequently asked questions about Dr. Elsey and Dr. Elsey’s Products. If you don’t find an answer here feel free to ask Dr. Elsey directly!
Yes, they works fine in Littermaid boxes.
All clumping litters are made from sodium bentonite, a form of clay. Premium scoopables, like ours use 100% sodium bentonite to maximize clumping ability. Some clumping litters blend cheaper clays with bentonite and will break apart in the litter box.
Our litter is extremely absorbent, immediately absorbing urine and dehydrating feces upon contact. Dr. Elsey’s Litters absorb the moisture quickly, effectively killing the odor.
Yes. Concerns that bentonite clays will “set-up” in a cat’s stomach are un-founded. Over half of the litters sold today include bentonite clay and have proven safe for cats since their introduction over fifteen years ago. In fact, the convenience of clumping clays have contributed greatly to the growth of cats as pets. In Dr. Elsey’s 25 plus years as a feline only veterinarian, he has never had a case where clumping litters have caused a problem with a cat.
While other litters use bentonite clays, Dr Elsey’s particle size and texture make the difference. Fine grain litters form thin clumps which easily break down in the litter box, and very large particles are difficult for cats to dig in. Our scoopables have the right texture and particle size to create an ideal paw feel for your cat. We call it “dig-a-bility.”
Cat Attract™ is the answer for problem cats that will not use their litter boxes. It contains a unique herb mixed in with a premium scoopable litter to attract cats to the litter box. Once they are there, the litter’s ideal texture and particle size encourages digging and use. Every bag of Cat Attract™ contains a Dr. Elsey Litterbox Solutions booklet to help your cat come back to its litterbox.
No! DO NOT FLUSH our litters. These litters are designed to form hard clumps. A “flushable” clumping litter is a contradiction. If it dissolves or breaks apart in a toilet, it will break apart in a litter box. A true clumping litter is more convenient for you and better for your cat.
