Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie is a complete food for adult cats. It has been specifically formulated for cats with Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) who are prone to being or are overweight. It has been developed to help to dissolve struvite uroliths and to prevent them from reoccurring. This is due to a low level of magnesium and acidification of the urine. It will also dilute the urine to encourage regular flushing out of the bladder.
Diluting the urine will also decrease the concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates in the bladder. It will also support the bladder with glycosaminoglycans (GAG), which naturally helps to prevent toxins or bacteria from causing inflammation or pain. During diopathic cystitis glycosaminoglycans are reduced. The moderate calorie content will help your cat with weight management whilst still taking in high quality protein and the nutrients she needs.
RECOMMENDED FOR CATS WITH TENDENCY TO BE OVERWEIGHT IN CASES OF: Struvite uroliths: dissolution and management of recurrence, Calcium oxalate uroliths: management of recurrence.
NOT RECOMMENDED IN CASE OF; Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Heart disease (when sodium restriction is sought), Concurrent use of urine-acidifying medication, Growth, gestation/lactation.
