PURINA® PROPLAN® VETERINARY DIETS Canine UR Urinary is a highly palatable complete veterinary diet for the dissolution of struvite stones. PPVD UR is specially formulated to produce a urine that is acidic and which helps to both dissolve and minimise reoccurrence of struvite stones. It also contains moderate protein levels to minimise the availability of food for the bacteria which are commonly associated with urinary stones. PPVD UR contains nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants which help support the health of the urinary tract.
Note that PPVD UR is not suitable for dogs that are receiving urinary acidifiers. If in doubt, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Increased water consumption can help dilute the urine and further decrease the risk of crystal formation. For dissolution of struvite stones, an initial feeding period of 5-12 weeks is recommended. For long-term use, an initial feeding period of up to 6 months is recommended, but the dog should be re-evaluated regularly as indicated by the underlying condition.
