Bladder stones are collections of mineral crystals that combine together in the urinary tract. They can cause discomfort and lead to more serious problems that require the care of a veterinarian. Because your dog's food plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being, Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition that is specially formulated to help support your dog's bladder health. Dogs need the right balance of minerals to maintain good bladder health. Excess minerals can encourage the formation of crystals in the urine, which can lead to the creation of bladder stones.

What Does U D Stand for in Dog Food?
Answer

UD stands for Urinary Care Diet for dogs and has a positive effect on maintaining the healthy bladder of your pet. The formula of Hills prescription diet gives a healthy bladder and prevents your dog from developing cystine stones. It is a balanced diet that has all the nutrients that fulfill your dog's health requirements. Hills u/d dog food effectively dissolves cystine stones and also minimizes the chances of its recurrence. It also helps in maintaining a strong immunity in dogs. The ingredients of the Hills u/d diet include antioxidants, L-carnitine, and taurine. It has low levels of calcium and sodium, which prevents the formation of bladder stones. It maintains the desired urine pH and controls the level of quality and highly digestible proteins.

What is Hills U D?
Answer

Hills U D is a balanced and complete dry dog food and has all the nutrition that your pet dog needs. Every dog requires an ideal quantity of minerals for maintaining a healthy bladder. Extra minerals can boost the development of urine crystals which could lead to the formation of bladder stones. Hills prescription UD diet minimizes the risk of bladder and kidney stones in dogs vulnerable to non-struvite kidney stones. The UD diet has low levels of calcium and protein that prevent bladder stone formation. It is also effective in maintaining your dog's urine pH level, which avoids the formation of stones. It is also supplemented with antioxidants to regulate oxidative injuries to cells and provides strong immunity in dogs.

What Dog Food is Best for Urinary Tract Health?
Answer

If your dog has urinary tract infections, you should consider giving your dog a prescription u/d diet. The u/d diet helps to dissolve kidney and bladder stones and also stops their re-occurrence. The formulated diet dilutes your dogโ€™s urine and has a positive effect on their urine pH level. But these diets usually require a prescription, and so you must get one prescribed by your Vet. Urinary tract infections can be painful and require continuous access to a place for your dog to urinate. An ideal and balanced diet ensures a healthy urinary tract and is also suited for your dogโ€™s good health and immunity. Apart from a healthy u/d diet, ensure that your dog drinks plenty of water daily.

What is the Difference Between Hill's Science Diet and Prescription Diet?
Answer

The pet foods that come under the Hills Prescription Diet caters to specific medical issues that develop in our pets. While the Science Diet takes care of the good health of your pet during their different life stages. A prescription diet requires a prescription from a vet and can be purchased through your veterinarian. On the other hand, Science diets are available at pet grooming centers, feed stores, and pet specialty stores. Hills is only inclined towards Prescription diets and does not make Science diets which are only a substitute to prescription diets.

Do you Need a Prescription to Buy Hill's Prescription Diet?
Answer

The formula of Hills Prescription Diet pet foods addresses specific health issues of our pets. Veterinarians specialize in treating our pets and other animals and also care for their patients. Hence, Hills diet supplements always recommend the involvement of a veterinarian to ensure your pet's nutrition and overall health. These diets address specific health conditions and have proper medicated and nutritional values attached to them. That is why a veterinarianโ€™s involvement is necessary. He checks the health condition of your pet over time and suggests diet plans and medication with time.

Can Dry Food Cause UTI in Dogs?
Answer

Not all dry pet foods cause UTI in dogs. However, low-quality dry foods are the main reason for enhancing alkaline levels in urine. Hence, the first thing that we should do is shift towards high-quality prescription diets for dogs. However, you can also give a raw diet and homemade diet, properly balanced with nutrients. Consult your Vet and feed only a prescription u/d diet for UTI issues in dogs. Over-the-counter pet foods are not bound to any vet prescriptions, and hence we cannot be sure if it provides complete nutrition to our pet. Hills prescription u/d diet provides balanced nutrients and boosts immunity in dogs.

I will NEVER use Prescription Dog food again

My 3.5 yr old pharaoh hound/Dobermann/Shephard mix forms calcium oxalate crystals/stones for probably genetic disorder reasons. This food is supposed to help prevent them. I can say, with evidence this food does not. It performs exactly like non-prescription dog food, in that my dog formed a large number of stones within 2 months, which was comparable to the Gentle Giants brand I moved to post a homemade diet. My homemade diet at least kept the stones at bay for 6-8 months. And, not to mention, last urine sample taken when his urethra was blocked (4 days ago) showed struvite crystals present in his urine. DO not use this food. Natural raw or cooked diets work best. Eating this food is like a human eating highly processed foods on a daily basis. It does nothing but harm. Thanks Hill's for adding to my stress.

My dog feels better!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My jack russell is almost twelve. After some health issues she was put on this food! She has really recovered AND she has always enjoyed the taste with no resistance! Before my vet recommended it a neighbor told me her 13 year old standard poodle has been on it and was doing really really well. I never used a prescription diet before with my pets and I am thrilled with the outcome. Thanks!

100% RECOMMENDED FOR DALMATIANS
VERIFIED PURCHASER

I can't stress this enough... this product is amazing for the health of your dog. We have an 11 year old Dalmatian (I bet you couldn't even tell he's 11 from the picture below). He's not our first Dalmatian... our first one was fed with No Name brand basic dog food that we bought from grocery stores. We didn't know much about the impact cheap dog food would have on him; he had kidney stones about 2 to 3 times in his life. At the end of his life, when he was only 8 years old, he was frail, he couldn't control his bladder, and he could barely move. He passed away shortly and it was heartbreaking. With our current dalmatian, Billy, we became more educated on the breed and what food works. Dalmatians are prone to kidney stones and this food has been a blessing. He's 11 and as energetic as he was when he was 5. This is the perfect food for anyone with about dalmatian.

My Review

I had purchased this item for a couple of months and found it very soft and smelled different. Was not sure if it was just a batch or if it had been changed and found out that it had been changed and the two vet clinic where I had bought it from didn't know. The dog liked it and so I continued to give it to her. Was happy to hear it was changed.

Good Food, but...
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My Briard boy had to have emergency Surgery for bladder stones. He is on this food ever since, but I have to mix Fiber and pumpkin with it or he gets really constipated! To the point that he is in pain. He has water available at all times. Any others having that problem? He had no stones and his checkups are looking good, so yes I would recommend this food. Just pumpkin in his beard all the time is not so nice!

Need smaller kibble for smaller dogs!
VERIFIED PURCHASER

My 7 year old Chihuahua has been on this food for about 3 months now. He struggles to eat it due to the rather large kibble size. It would be nice if they offered this in a smaller kibble for smaller dogs. I'm surprised there's not already that option. Please consider making this in a smaller kibble for smaller dogs so they can not struggle while trying to eat this food.

Works great so far, although a little expensive.

Our 13 year old Peek-Poo had bladder surgery about a year ago, and the vet told us to feed him U/D. So far he is doing great. The only thing is he has put weight on since he has been on UD (don't know if it is his age or the UD). We give him a little under a half cup twice a day, and he loves it.

Dog LOVES this stuff- and prevented $4k surgery
VERIFIED PURCHASER

Back In Nov 2015 we had to run our Dog in the middle of a stormy rainy night to emergency and learned we need to pay almost $4k after all said and done to remove Bladder stones and some were in his urethra. This was not an option. So the vet drained his bladder, prescribed some pain killers and prescribed Hills u/d prescription food. She said he must only eat this food. I was concerned "Swiper" would not eat this he is picky. But he loves it. Happy to report he passed whatever stones and is loving life now March 2016. Life is Good! Thanks Hills for making such a fine product good enough for my dog to like to eat. Little costly but I still saved $4k in vet bills, so worth it!

The vet recommended this food, my 13 yr old shihtzu developed blatter stones. No issues since switching to this food and he loves it! It's expensive but I want nothing but the best for my dog! Our other 3 yr old shihtzu loves the food as well and always tries to get into it so we decided to get him on a hills science diet since he needs no specialty foods currently, but he loves the taste and I assume is better for him than his current food.

Just what my dog's special diet requires.

I'm glad that this food is available but I wish there were a couple of flavor options. We learned that this food would be my dalmatian's only diet for the rest of his life before he was a year old. He's bored with the flavor but we've been unable to find anything else that his system will tolerate.
