Specific Canine CCD Struvite
The Specific diets from Dechra are developed in close collaboration with veterinarians, vet nurses and experts in animal nutrition. They are divided into two main categories - Lifestage Diets for healthy cats and dogs, and Therapeutic Diets for the management of Clinical Conditions.
Specific Struvite Management is highly palatable and especially composed to dissolve struvite stones and crystals. Specific Struvite Management will also help with the prevention of struvite stones and crystals in adult pets. They induce low urinary concentration of magnesium and phosphorous and a low pH, which will prevent the formation of struvite.
Deposition of struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) uroliths in the lower urinary tract is promoted by high urinary concentrations of magnesium, ammonium and phosphorus and an alkaline urinary pH. Specific Struvite Management was specially developed for the prevention of this form of urolithiasis. The reduced phosphorus and magnesium content in Specific Struvite Management lead to low urinary concentrations of magnesium and phosphorus.
In addition to this, Specific Struvite Management induces a low urinary pH (6.0-6.3) which prevents struvite precipitation. By dividing the daily ration of Specific Struvite Management into 3 or 4 meals, any postprandial increase of urinary pH is minimised. Struvite urolithiasis in the dog is often associated with urinary tract infections. Specific Struvite Management will only be efficacious if concurrent urinary tract infections are treated appropriately.
Struvite urolithiasis is only one type of urolithiasis which may occur in dogs
Reduced phosphorus and magnesium content which reduces the content of these minerals in the urine
Induces a low urinary pH which will help dissolve the struvite
Increased sodium content, which makes the pet drink and urinate more
High energy density
The diet has a reduced content of magnesium and phosphorus (components of struvite crystals) for prevention and dissolution of struvite crystals and stones. High quality and highly digestible ingredients ensure a maximum uptake of nutrients from the diet, whilst reducing faecal output.
EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids with a beneficial effect in maintaining healthy joints, skin and coat.
