Hills Urinary Care s/d Dry Cat Food
Veterinary Authorization Required
Bladder stones are collections of mineral crystals that combine together in the urinary tract. They can cause discomfort and lead to more serious problems that require the care of a veterinarian.
Hill's nutritionists & veterinarians developed Prescription Diet s/d clinical nutrition to support a cat's urinary health. In fact, s/d is clinically tested to dissolve struvite stones in as little as 6 days (average 13 days). This dry food has a chicken flavor and an irresistible taste that cats love.
How it helps:
- Dissolves struvite stones in as little as 6 days (average 13 days)
- Increases solubility of struvite crystals, aiding in dissolution
- Minimizes urinary concentration of struvite building blocks
How it works:
- Controlled minerals and optimal urine pH
- Optimal target urine pH of 5.9 to 6.1
- Controlled magnesium and phosphorus
Prescription Diet s/d Dry Cat Food may be a viable alternative to perineal urethrostomy in feline patients with struvite-associated urethral obstructions.
After an initial feeding period (2-3 months) of Prescription Diet s/d Dry pet food, feed Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Feline or Prescription Diet c/d Multicare + Metabolic Feline to help avoid recurrence of FLUTD. Note: Urine pH and urinalysis should be monitored periodically as indicated in the management of FLUTD. Urine pH values of individual cats may vary significantly throughout the day and be affected by several non-dietary factors.
