Product adjustment Urinary Struvite | ASD dry food for cats

10-10-2016

The formulation of the Urinary Struvite | ASD dry food for cats has been slightly adjusted.

Due to an increasing demand for a struvite dissolving product, the amount of the urinary acidifying substance has been increased. This results in the product getting the nutritional purpose ‘dissolution of struvite stones’, in addition to ‘reduction of struvite stone recurrence’.

The adjustment has a slightly stronger acidifying effect on the patient’s urine, resulting in the average urine pH to change from 6.2 to 6.0. For patients with large struvite stones it is still advised that, next to feeding the adjusted Urinary Struvite, an additional urinary acidifier is used.

Cats that are currently being fed Urinary Struvite | ASD do not have to switch diets.

The start of the distribution of the adjusted product (in 500 gram, 3 kg and 10 packaging: BBD date 14-3-2018 and later) is expected from week 41 onward.

Solely for preventive use, Urinary Calm | UCD and Hypoallergenic (Lamb) | LRD dry food for cats can also be used.
