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 the food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being, Hill's nutritionists and veterinarians have developed clinical nutrition especially 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 is Hills U D?

What Dog Food is Best for Urinary Tract Health?

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?

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?

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?

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.
