Lower urinary tract disease (LUTD) refers to a group of disorders that commonly leads to irritation of the urinary tract and corresponding undesirable clinical signs. What causes Lower Urinary Tract Disease? In cats, bacterial infections are far less common. Urinary crystals and stones are often linked to this disease. The most common cause of Lower Urinary Tract Disease in cats is idiopathic cystitis. This diet promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
- Complete and balanced diet recommended for cats at risk of developing lower urinary tract disease
- Relative Super Saturation (RSS) methodology predicts the crystallization potential of urine; RSS is used to develop diets that lower the concentration of ions contributing to struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis.
- Increasing the urine volume simultaneously reduces the saturation of urine with calcium oxalate and struvite crystals
- Formula provides nutrition that aids in the management of pure struvite uroliths.
- Reduced level of magnesium, a natural component of struvite stones
