Hill's Canine Prescription Diet s/d Urinary Care Tin 12 x 370g
|Brand||Hill's Prescription Diet|
Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Canine has been formulated by veterinarians to help resolve struvite crystals and stones in your dog. Struvite forms as a result of urine that's saturated with protein, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium combined with an improper urine pH.
- Reduced magnesium, phosphorus and protein - decreases urinary concentration of struvite constituents, magnesium, ammonium and phosphate.
- Increased energy - reduces food intake and thereby mineral intake.
- Increased sodium - increases urine volume to decrease urinary concentration of struvite-forming constituents.
- Acid pH 5.9-6.3 - increase the solubility of struvite crystals.
- High vitamin E and Beta-carotene - neutralises free radicals to help combat urolithiasis.
