Diamond Care Urinary Support Cat 6#
Feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) occurs frequently in pet cats, especially those indoor-only, overweight cats who don’t get enough exercise. In fact, bladder or urinary tract disease was the most common medical condition that prompted veterinary care among insured cats in 2017 and 2018, according to Nationwide.
Large amounts of certain minerals, such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium, can contribute to crystal formation in the urine. The two most common types of urinary crystals, struvite and calcium oxalate, can also lead to stone (or urolith) formation. Urinary crystals and stones can irritate the bladder lining, causing pain, and when combined with other materials, can lead to urethral blockages.
Diamond CARE Urinary Support Formula for Adult Cats is a new option that can help address your feline friend’s urinary health issues. The new food helps support a healthy urinary tract by reducing urine pH. In addition, controlled amounts of minerals help reduce their presence in urine and decrease the risk of crystal and stone formation.
The formula also contains guaranteed levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in an optimal ratio to maintain healthy skin and coat. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory effects throughout the body, including the bladder wall. Omega-6 fatty acids, on the other hand, are essential for skin and coat condition, proper cell wall structure and absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. To ensure cats receive all the nutrients they need, this new formula is made with chicken meal as the first ingredient and guaranteed levels of antioxidants to support a strong, healthy immune system.
Your veterinarian will be able to determine if your cat’s urinary tract issues are related to FLUTD or another cause. Be sure to talk with your veterinarian about your cat’s symptoms, the food you’re currently feeding and whether your cat would benefit from a change in diet.
