Hi All, I need a healthy maintenance diet for a dog that has had treatment for Struvite crystals. Just read the artical about the tinned prescription foods and I whole heartedly agree that these foods are hugely over priced. The Hill's S/D's three main constituents are cornstarch, chicken fat and egg products with a huge helping of salt thrown in to make you thirsty! £3 a tin is obscene! Would anyone with nutritional knowledge be able to point me in the direction of a low purine food that I can use now treatment is over? Many thanks.
