What are the signs of urinary stones?
When stones form in the bladder, they cause irritation to the bladder wall. This can be painful and cause bleeding, leading to blood in the urine and pain or difficulty passing urine. Urinary stones will need to be removed. Depending on their type they can either be dissolved using a specially formulated diet (such as PURINA® PRO PLAN® VETERINARY DIETS Canine UR Urinary) or they may have to be surgically removed. A bacterial infection is involved in most cases of struvite bladder stones and so antibiotic treatment is usually also needed.
This complete veterinary diet helps dogs with struvite urinary stones. It is formulated to produce urine that is acidic and which helps to both dissolve and minimise recurrence 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. Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants help support the health of the urinary tract.
Available in 3kg and 12kg bags.
