Hi, I have a 2 year old neutered male cat who was recently diagnosed with chronic UTI. The vet told me to put him on a low-ash diet. The problem is, my cat won't eat the prescription food (Science Diet) the vet gave me, which has 2% ash. He will eat Friskies brand special diet, which has 2.8% ash. Is this .8% enough to make an appreciable difference? What is the recommended maximum amount of ash a UTI cat should have in his food? Thanks.
It is not only the ash, it is the urinary pH. The science diet food halps acidify the urinary pH. Ask your vet about other prescription diets made by purina or eukanuba. Good luck, vetcare
