u/d hills food (urinary tract)
« on: May 08, 2017, 10:53 »
Hi there, I'm pretty new to this and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on the food my dog is on.
He had stones in his bladder and I was told by the vet that he has to have the hills prescription urinary tract u/d wet food, and he isn't allowed ANYTHING else other than cucumber as a treat ( which is hard), the food also quite costly, Has anyone used this before? or know of an alternative that I can buy, and also is this food any good as I've read reviews that its not and causes dogs to put weight on which mine has. - the PH levels in his last urine test were fine but im still told that he has to have this food and I cant even change to the dry version which he prefers
Thanks guys , really appreciate any help/advice

Welcome to the forum lauren1984!
Hopefully we may be able to help you as there are already suggestions of foods that other forum members have mentioned in a thread here:  https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/feeding-dogs-with-health-problems/14/-cocker-spaniel-with-struvite-stones-and-other-health-issues/1306/msg5235#msg5235

Elsewhere in the forum a member helpfully makes us aware that using supplements to prevent lawn burn may "leave your pet more prone to urinary stones and infections". This thread is here: https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/general-dog-chat/10/lawn-burn/906/msg2449#msg2449

There is another thread here with which may also be helpful to you :  https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/feeding-dogs-with-health-problems/14/staffordshire-bull-terrier-with-renal-problem/821/msg1963#msg1963

..... quick mention of another thread on the forum which may be useful to you - and is perhaps more relevant -  with forum members discussing Calcium Oxalate Crystals:

David has written another of his excellent and informative articles here which hopefully will help you further :
