Adult cats with difficulty maintaining ideal weight (sterilized / overweight / little activity):
Dissolution of struvite stones.
Management of recurrences of struvite and calcium oxalate stones. (In older cats it is recommended that a check of renal function be performed prior to administration of Urinary S/O High Moderate Calorie).
Important: in case of recurrent idiopathic cystitis, Urinary S/O Feline wet food is preferable.
Gestation, lactation, growth.
chronic renal failure, metabolic acidosis.
Use of urine acidifying drugs.
For the dissolution of struvite uroliths, a dietary treatment of 5 to 12 weeks duration is required. To prevent recurrences of urolithiasis, treatment should be continued for at least 6 months, and a veterinary examination should be carried out. Once the treatment is finished, the use of Obesity Management or Satiety is recommended if the cat is overweight, or some of the foods from the Neutered range for sterilized cats, if the animal has already reached its ideal weight.
Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie effectively dissolves struvite stones.
Urinary dilution decreases the concentration of struvite and oxalate stones. An increased urine volume also contributes to bladder maintenance.
The reduced caloric content of the food makes it possible to limit weight gain in cats with a tendency to be overweight.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), naturally present in healthy bladder mucosa, are decreased in idiopathic cystitis. This decrease, responsible for greater permeability, facilitates access to germs, toxins and ions, causes inflammation and the stimulation of pain sensitive receptors.
Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie has been specially formulated for the treatment of diseases of the lower urinary tract in cats with a tendency to be overweight. The formula allows a reduction in calorie intake thanks to its moderate fat content, while providing high quality protein. Daily rationing is based on an energy restriction and is calculated to facilitate exhaustive control over weight gain.
