Your Comprehensive Guide To Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Urinary Care Canned Dog Food

What Is Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Urinary Care Canned Dog Food?

Is your dog having trouble passing urine? Does his vet say he has bladder stones? Are you plagued by struvite crystals in your dog? Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Urinary Care Canned Dog Food is for you! This is a specially formulated diet that can start working to dissolve those pesky stones less than a fortnight!

What Are Bladder Stones?

Bladder stones are made up of mineral deposits in your dog's urine. They build up in a dog's bladder and are also known as struvite stones. Bacterial infections in the bladder most commonly cause struvite stones. These bacteria give off an enzyme called urease that breaks down urea in the urine and causes an excess of ammonia.

Ammonia makes your dog's urine alkaline, and it also causes inflammation in the bladder. These conditions cause the formation of struvite crystals, which in turn form struvite or bladder stones. The incidences of struvite stones are much higher in female dogs than male dogs.

Can Only Infections Cause Bladder Stones?

No, many other things can cause bladder stones. If your dog has been on antidiuretic drugs for a long time, this can cause bladder stones. Long-term use of antacids can also cause struvite crystals and stones. Certain kidney diseases make your dog's urine alkaline, which precipitates these stones.

Suppose your dog is ingesting anything or has any medical condition that makes their urine alkaline, raises its pH, or causes elevated levels of phosphorus or ammonia in the urine. In that case, it will make your dog more likely to develop crystals in their urine, which will turn into bladder stones.
