Clinically proven to help dissolve struvite uroliths in dogs.
KEY FEATURES KEY BENEFITS Magnesium, Phosphorus; Protein Reduced Decreases urinary concentration of struvite constituents, magnesium, ammonium and phosphate. Energy Increased Reduces food intake and thereby mineral intake. Sodium Increased Increases urine volume to decrease urinary concentration of struvite-forming constituents Target urinary pH Acid: pH 5.9 - 6.3 Increases the solubility of struvite Vitamin E, Beta-carotene High Neutralises free radicals to help combat urolithiasis. Vitamin C is not supplemented because it is a precursor of oxalate and may increase the risk of calcium oxalate formation with diets for struvite dissolution.

Dissolution of struvite uroliths
Not Recommended For:
- Pregnant or lactating bitches
- First 1-2 weeks after surgery
- Dogs concurrently receiving urinary acidifiers
- Feeding for longer than 6 months, without monitoring plasma protein and acid-base status (because of low protein content and urine acidifying properties).
- Dogs with non-struvite uroliths
- Dogs with heart failure, hypertension, kidney disease or liver disease
- Dogs with hyperlipidaemia or pancreatitis, or at risk of pancreatitis
- The transition to feeding s/d™ Canine should ideally take a period of 7 days.
- Monitor the urine and control urinary tract infection throughout dissolution. Urinary pH will increase if infection with urease-producing bacteria is not eliminated. Urinary pH must be continuously acidic for successful dissolution.
- Dogs fed foods with a restricted protein content commonly exhibit unusual laboratory values, e.g. it is not ncommon to find a urinary specific gravity below 1.020 and a plasma/serum urea value less than 1.7 mmol/l (10mg/dl).
Other Products to Consider
Other products to consider
- After successful dissolution (or surgical removal) of struvite uroliths: feed Prescription Diet™ c/d™ Canine (or Prescription Diet™ w/d™ Canine if prone to being overweight) long term to reduce the recurrence of struvite urolithiasis.
- To control non-struvite uroliths:
Prescription Diet™ u/d™ Canine.
How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.
These ranges are a starting point only because dogs' needs vary. Adjust the feeding amount to maintain the optimal body weight.Prescription DietTM s/dTM Canine is not recommended for long-term maintenance feeding.
