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.
Canine UR Urinary is a highly palatable complete veterinary diet to help nutritionally dissolve and/ or help prevent struvite urinary stones in dogs.
• Formulated to promote an acidic urine which helps to both dissolve and manage reoccurrence of struvite stones.
• Contains moderate protein levels to minimise substrate availability for the urease-producing bacteria which are commonly associated with urinary stones.
• Contains nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants which help support the health of the urinary tract.
• Highly palatable which is very beneficial for dogs who need to eat this food long term.
