TROVET Urinary Calm | UCD for cats
TROVET introduces the canned food variant of Urinary Calm | UCD. The product is specially formulated for adult cats to prevent (reoccurring) struvite and calcium oxalate formation and to reduce stress.
In order to prevent struvite formation, urine acidifying agents are added to Urinary Calm, to lower the urine pH to a pH-value between 6.0 and 6.4. The phosphorous level in the product is low, as it is one of the components that make up the structure of struvite. In order to reduce the risk of calcium oxalate formation, ingredients are selected to minimise the oxalate production and excretion.
A larger urine volume, reduces the chance of precipitation of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals. To encourage fluid intake, the sodium level is (responsibly) increased in Urinary Calm.
To help reduce stress and the risk of Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (FIC), three ingredients are added to Urinary Calm: green tea extract, milk protein hydrolysate and tryptophan.
Urinary Calm is a complete and balanced dietary food, which after prescription by a veterinarian, can be fed for life.
