Hills Prescription Diet Cd Multicare Stress Urinary Care Dry Cat Food

Hills Prescription Diet Cd Multicare Stress Urinary Care Dry Cat Food

Hills Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Stress Feline is formulated to support your cats urinary health reducing the risk of disorders such as feline idiopathic cystitis and urinary crystal or stone formation.

Although the exact mechanisms of feline idiopathic cystitis (FIC) are not understood, it is well recognised that stress can be a predisposing factor. In many cases, the development of a bladder problem can be the first sign that a cat is feeling stressed or anxious. Signs of bladder problems in cats include:

  • Straining to urinate
  • Blood tinged urine
  • Frequently urinating small amounts
  • Urinating in unusual places
  • Reduced appetite, lethargy and restlessness
  • Excessive licking of the urinary opening

Another common cause of bladder problems in cats is the devlopment of urinary stones, which 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.

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 cat’s 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.

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.

Hills Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Stress contains hydrolysed casein, a bioactive peptide that has been shown to decrease anxiety related behaviours in dogs and cats, as well as L-tryptophan, an essential amino acid precursor for serotonin which may help to decrease signs of anxiety and stress in cats. It is formulated with controlled levels of magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and oxalate, to limit the building blocks of crystals and bladder stones and also contains potassium citrate to adjust urine pH and interrupt the formation of bladder stones. C/d Multicare Stress is enriched with antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system, as well as omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil to reduce urinary tract inflammation. C/d Multicare Stress is a complete and balanced diet and is recommended as a lifelong food for adult cats prone to development of FIC or bladder stones.

Feeding Guidelines

These are broad guidelines only, designed to assist with feeding your pet based on their weight, age and activity level. Always check the feeding charts on your pet's food packaging in conjunction with these feeding guidelines. Required amounts may differ between individual pets, and adjustments may be required to maintain optimal body weight.
