I was ready to make a Biotic PH - purchase on your website until I saw your shipping charges. That was the end of that. I never buy anything from a company that makes money via their shipping charges. Fortunately, Vitamin C accomplishes the same thing. You have lost a new Customer.
Thank you for your email.
The cost of shipping is high but entirely beyond our control.
Our doctors say vitamin C will not affect urinary pH, if that is your objective.
Thank you for your reply. I can only say I am very glad my Bichons are not under the care of your staff veterinarians. Vitamin C most definitely DOES acidify the urine if given in divided doses. This is a well known fact and is recommended as treatment by veterinarians not interested in $$$$. After reading the product label, I realized that the Biotic pH- has too many miniscule junk additives which are bizarre to say the least. I will purchase Vitamin C Tabs at my local pharmacy.
We must reply to two errors in your letter:
1. Vitamin C, an antioxidant, has been shown to repair free-radical damaged cells in the epithelium thereby reducing the favorable environment for formation of oxalate crystals. Vitamin C has not been shown to have an effect on urinary pH. A search through Google or Google Scholar will find many peer reviewed research articles to support this fact. If you can provide contrary research data we would be most interested.
