Prescription Diet C/D was formulated specifically to provide nutritional management of dogs with struvite-related urinary tract disease.
When your dog has a urinary condition, its even more important to feed the right food. Bladder stones also known as uroliths, are collections of mineral crystals that occur in a dog's urinary bladder. The most common type is composed of the mineral struvite, which has magnesium, ammonium and phosphate components.
The formation of bladder stones is related in part to changes in the acidity (pH value) of the urine. Stones grow in size over time and if untreated, they may cause irritation and/or partially or completely block the passage of urine.
There are several factors that influencing the likelihood of a dog developing bladder stones including Urinary Tract Infection, diet high levels of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium promote the formation of certain types of crystals. Certain breeds like the Miniture Schnauzer, Dalmation, Yorkshire Terrier and Bulldogs are more prone to develop particular types of bladder stones.
Hills Prescription Diet C/D controls mineral levels and is formulated to produce a urinary acidity that helps stop struvite stones reforming. Because Hills Prescription C/D provides complete and balanced nutrition, it can also be fed long term to maintain the health of adult dogs.

Cured my pug/cross and she loves itAfter spending a fortune on vets bills trying different products and having many urine samples tested, my vet suggested this and it worked. My dog has been using this for around 2 years and so far she's never had crystals again. I used to buy this from my vet but found this store online and I buy it here now. Great prices and service.
