Iams Veterinary Formula Urinary-S Low pH/S Canned Cat Food
good food for cats with struvite crystals
I have a young male cat that went through idiopathic cystitis and a couple of partial blockages. The vet finally recommended PU surgery, which we did. Nevertheless, he still had cystitis flare ups after the surgery. We tried all the prescription urinary foods and this is the only one he really likes. Since he has been on this food, he has had no problems.
I also think this food has the best-quality ingredients of all the prescription foods.

The only prescription canned he'll eat
When our cat blocked for the third time and had to have perineal urothstomy surgery, he was ordered to stay on canned, not dry, prescription diet for the rest of his life. The only problem - he wouldn't touch any of the prescription canned diets that we could find at either retail stores or any vet offices in town. Ordering Iams was a last attempt, because we noticed that unlike the others, it had actual meats as the first ingredients. And . . . Hey, Mikey! He likes it!! Only witholding five stars at the moment because will need at last 15 months to see if he stays blockage free (his average length of time between blockages in the past). Otherwise, for now, a definite paws up and sigh of relief.

My cat is a fussy eater and does not eat much to begin with. She will eat whatever I give her sufficient for her needs whenever she is hungry enough to eat, so I have switched to this brand since it lists whole meats as first ingredients instead of meat by products as with the previous brand I have been using for her condition. I don't know if she likes it or if she thinks it tastes good. It's what the doctor ordered and I prefer she eat whole meat products versus meat by products.

Just what I needed at the right price.
Cats eat it, no complaints. Even the one that really needs it and she is very finicky.
