Urinary is for the nutritional management of:Dissolution of struvite urolithsReduction of recurrence of struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis using a single diet.Note: In cases of recurrent idiopathic cystitis, Urinary Wet is recommended. Not recommended in cases of:Pregnancy, lactation, growthChronic renal failure, metabolic acidosisHeart failureHypertensionUse of urine-acidifying drugsUrinary S/O Feline effectively dissolves struvite stones.Diluting urine decreases the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. The larger urinary volume also ensures regular bladder wash out.Undersaturated urine is an environment where crystals cannot proliferate and so is unfavourable to the formation of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) are naturally present on the healthy bladder mucosa but decrease in idiopathic cystitis. This causes increased permeability of the bladder to bacteria, toxins and ions, resulting in bladder inflammation and stimulation of pain sensitive receptors.Veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of cats with specific clinical conditions and are recommended to be used under veterinary advice. For more information on feeding Urinary to your cat, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
