Description

Cystine stones (uroliths) occur when an inherited defect of the kidneys causes a build up of cystine in the dog’s urine. Cystine is an amino acid that is filtered and reabsorbed by the kidneys. The build up of this amino acid in the urine leads to the formation of cystine stones. Certain breeds are more affected than others by cystine urolithiasis. These include English Bulldogs, Newfoundlands, Dachshunds, Chihuahuas, and Mastiffs. Mixed breed dogs with the ancestry of these genetically susceptible breeds can also be affected.

Key Benefits
  • Canine Urinary UC Low Purine is a highly digestible, palatable, complete and balanced adult dog food formulated to meet the nutritional needs of adult dogs prone to urate, cysteine and xanthine urolithiasis.
  • Low purine proteins combined with the production of alkaline urine help reduce the risk of urate stones
  • Contains moderate quantities of high quality proteins and controlled methionine and cysteine levels
  • Formula increases the urine volume to simultaneously reduce the saturation of urine with struvite and calcium oxalate precursors.
  • Enhanced levels of linoleic acid, zinc, and biotin help to promote a healthy skin and shiny coat

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
