Specific Feline FCD & FCW Crystal Prevention
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 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.
The precipitation of struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) in the lower urinary tract is promoted by high concentrations of magnesium, ammonium and phosphorus in the urine and an alkaline urinary pH. Specific Struvite Management is specially developed for the prevention of this form of urolithiasis. The reduced phosphorus and magnesium content in Specific Struvite Management leads to lowered urinary concentrations.
In addition to this, Specific Struvite Management induces a low urinary pH (6.0 to 6.3) which reduces the likelihood of struvite precipitation.
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
High energy density
High energy digestibility
The diet has a reduced content of magnesium and phosphorus (components of struvite crystals) for prevention of recurrence of struvite crystals and stones.
A urine pH below 6.4 dissolves existing struvite crystals and prevents precipitation of new struvite crystals. EPA and DHA are both omega-3 fatty acids with a beneficial effect on the development of healthy skin and coat.

Helped save my cats life!My 6 year old male BSH cat had to be rushed to the vet as an emergency with a blocked urethra. I had lucky got him there before an kidney damage but he still needed catheterization, 36 hours on a drip and regular flushing of his bladder during that period. The plug the vet removed was 4mm by 200 mm which was a build up of crystals and protein. Considering his urethra is only a couple of mm wide I'm not surprised he couldn't wee. The vet undoubtedly saved his life but this product will stop him having to go through such a painful and potentially life threatening episode.
good productGreat product has helped older cat greatly
Specific Feline FCDThis cat food is excellent. My cat suffered a lot from crystals forming in his bladder and was always having to be treated for it which left him very distressed. Since he has been using this food he's never had any problems.
A good value urinary food. My cat enjoys it and he hasn`t had any problems with it.
