Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Canine Dissolution Canned Food may be prescribed to dissolve struvite crystals in the urine.
Urinary tract disease in dogs is often caused by the formation of mineral-based crystals and stones in the urinary tract that can cause discomfort, bloody urine and even life-threatening obstruction. For dogs, struvite crystals generally cause urinary tract disease. Prescription Diet© s/d© dog food is formulated by veterinarians to help dissolve struvite crystals and stones in your dog. Prescription Diet© s/d© has highly reduced levels of magnesium, phosphorus and protein, and also produces an acid urine pH, to aid in the management of struvite crystals and stones. The nutritional formulation of Prescription Diet© s/d© may also be useful for pets with a variety of conditions.
- Protein, Phosphorus, and Magnesium - Low - Help aid in the dissolution of struvite uroliths and crystals, and promote an acid urine. Lower protein level results in increased urine volume and more dilute urine, which further dilutes the concentration of struvite-forming constituents in the urine.
Added Antioxidants - Help reduce free radical damage to counteract oxidative stress
Target Urine pH-Acid (5.9-6.1)* - Increases the solubility of struvite crystals, aiding in dissolution.
*Urine pH of individual dogs may vary due to complicating factors such as: time of feeding before urine collection, type of urine collection, individual animal variation, and test methodology
Use only as directed by your veterinarian. Cover and refrigerate unused portion.
