Clinically proven to dissolve struvite uroliths in cats.
KEY FEATURES KEY BENEFITS Energy Increased Reduces food intake and thereby mineral intake. Magnesium; Phosphorus Reduced Decreases urinary concentration of struvite constituents, magnesium and phosphate. Target urinary pH Acid: pH 5.9 - 6.1 Increases the solubility of struvite. Vitamin E; Beta-carotene High Helps neutralise free radicals to help combat urolithiasis. Vitamin C Not added Vitamin C is a precursor of oxalate and may increase the risk of calcium oxalate formation during struvite dissolution
- Dissolution of struvite uroliths
Not Recommended For:
- Pregnant or lactating queens
- Feeding long term without monitoring acid-base status (because of urine acidifying properties)
- Cats with non-struvite uroliths
- Cats with kidney disease or metabolic acidosis
- Do not give urinary acidifiers when feeding s/d™ Feline
- Monitor the urine throughout dissolution and control urinary tract infection, if present. Urinary pH will increase if infection with urease-producing bacteria is not eliminated. Urinary pH must be acidic for successful dissolution.
- After initially feeding s/d™ Feline for 2-3 months, the recurrence of struvite-associated FLUTD can be reduced by feeding Prescription Diet™ c/d™Multicare Feline, or c/d™ Urinary Stress™ Feline or Metabolic+Urinary Stress™ Feline or w/d™ Feline.
- If FLUTD should recur when only Prescription Diet™ c/d™Multicare Feline, or c/d™ Urinary Stress™ Feline or Metabolic+Urinary Stress™ Feline or w/d™ Feline. is being fed, monitor urine pH, check for urinary tract infection or re-evaluate the type of uroliths and crystals.
