Hills Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Salmon Pouches
Hills Prescription c/d Multicare is formulated to support your cats urinary health and reduce the risk of urinary crystal and stone formation.
Bladder stones are formed when mineral crystals in the urine combine to form stone like structures that sit in the bladder. Crystals and stones can come in many different mineral compositions, the most common two are struvite (magnesium, ammonium and phosphate) and calcium oxalate.
Signs of bladder problems in cats include:
If a plug of crystals becomes lodged in a male cats urethra it can cause him to become blocked (unable to pass urine) which is a life threatening emergency. If you suspect that your cat is unable to urinate, you must contact your veterinarian immediately for emergency care.
Once bladder stones form they often require surgery to remove them, although some may be dissolved over time with the correct urinary support diet. If the underlying cause is not addressed after the stones are removed, crystals will persist in the urine causing them to build up again. Usually your veterinarian will recommend feeding a prescription urinary support diet as part of your cats treatment plan. Urinary support diets have controlled levels of protein and minerals to limit the building blocks of urinary crystals and stones. They also contain ingredients that optimise urine pH to interrupt stone formation. There are different types of urinary support diets for cats that are targeted at different types of crystals and stones, your veterinarian will recommend the right one.
C/d Multicare has controlled levels of magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and oxalate, to limit the building blocks of crystals and bladder stones. C/d contains potassium citrate to adjust and acidify urine pH and interrupt the formation of bladder stones, as well as increased levels of vitamin B6 to decrease oxalate formation. It is also enriched with antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system, as well as omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil for skin and coat health. C/d Multicare is a complete and balanced diet and is recommended as a lifelong diet for adult cats prone to the development of bladder stones.
