Why should your dog eat Hill's Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Dry Dog Food?
Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians developed the #1 veterinarian-recommended Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Dry Dog Food recipe specifically to support your dog's urinary health and for lifelong feeding of adult pets.
Urinary crystals and bladder stones form from a collection of excess minerals in the urinary tract, which causes discomfort and eventual serious problems that require the care of a veterinarian. A healthy bladder needs the right balance of essential nutrients to continue healthy digestion.
The recipe is enriched with antioxidants, potassium citrate, and omega-3 fatty acids that reduce 50 % of kidney bladder stones (i.e., struvite and calcium oxalate) in as little as five days and dissolve struvite stones in as little as seven days.
Ask your vet about which Prescription Diet is best for your dog to live their best life.
How does Hill's Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Dry Dog Food work?
Hill's Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Dry Dog Food's specialized blend makes a urinary environment that prevents and eradicates urinary crystals and kidney stones (e.g., struvite stones and calcium oxalate crystals). This recipe promotes a healthy urinary environment with Hill's exclusive S+OXSHIELD seal that:
Uses the Relative Super Saturation (RSS) methodology to lower the risk of crystal formation
- Balances urine's acidic pH levels by lowering ion concentration
- Controls the levels of magnesium, potassium citrates, and phosphorus that reduces the excess minerals which are the building blocks of kidney stones
- Evaluates stable urinary levels through Hill's calcium oxalate titration (C.O.T.)
- Controls fat levels and limits sodium intake to lower the risk for developing chronic kidney disease (C.K.D.) and to maintain fluid balance
Hill's Prescription Diet c/d Multicare Urinary Care Dry Dog Food contains nutritional values in crude protein, fat, and fiber:
Crude Protein (21.0 %) is the measure of all sources of nitrogen and includes nonprotein nitrogen, which may have no human value. Crude protein is a chemical analysis of the protein (e.g., chicken, milk, etc.) and non-protein (e.g., grains) amounts in the food. The recipe's low crude protein is important to avoid overtaxing the kidneys.
Crude Fat (17.3 %) is the term for fat-soluble materials such as lipid content in your dog's food when ingested. The diet is restricted in fat.
Crude Fiber (3.0 %) is a measure of indigestible cellulose, pentosans, lignin, and other components of this type of chemical fibers. A highly digestible fibrous food boosts the healthy absorption of essential vitamins and minerals. It provides major intestinal tract peristalsis, a wave-like muscle contraction to relax the stomach muscles.
