Hill's™ Prescription Diet™ u/d™ Canine

For the Nutritional Management of Dogs with Non-Struvite Related Urolithiasis

Urolithiasis is marked by a variety of symptoms for your dog that often include straining to urinate, frequent urination, blood in the urine and a painful abdomen. This condition, which consists of mineral stones forming in the urinary tract, is often initially treated with surgery and then followed with proper nutrition to help prevent recurrence of the stones.

Prescription Diet® u/d® Canine dog food was developed to aid in the management of dogs with the problems associated with urolithiasis, specifically calcium oxalate, urate and cystine urolithiasis. Low protein and calcium reduce urinary concentrations of urolith-forming constituents (Target urine pH: 7.1 -- 7.7).

Prescription Diet® u/d® Canine can also be used in dogs with advanced stages of kidney disease because of its low mineral levels and formulation.

    Not Recommended For:

    • Growing puppies, pregnant or nursing dogs.
    • Patients with struvite urolithiasis, hyperlipidemia, hypoalbuminemia, pancreatitis, history of pancreatitis or at risk of pancreatitis.

     

    Additional Info:

    • Decreases purine intake and uric acid excretion, which lowers risk of forming urate crystals and uroliths.
    • Protein level are sufficient for the maintenance of adult dogs, yet low enough to dilute urine by decreasing urea production.
    • Urine pH of individual dogs may vary due to complicating factors such as time of feeding before urine collection, type of urine collection, individual animal variation, or test methodology. Note: Dogs on low protein foods such as Prescription Diet® u/d® Canine commonly exhibit unusual laboratory values. Specifically urine specific gravity (USG) is usually less than 1.020 and blood (serum) urea nitrogen (BUN) is less than (10 mg/dl). Monitoring USG, urinary pH and BUN are methods to monitor the food’s effectiveness and owner compliance
    • Long-term use:'Dogs fed Prescription Diet® u/d® Canine long term should be monitored for the development of protein depletion. Because dogs with urate or cystine urolithiasis may have underlying metabolic abnormalities, we recommend performing a fasting serum chemistry profile and echocardiogram every 6 months in these patients.
