Default [Kidney] Problem with stone...

This cat has a problem with stone in kidney...



To avoid the stone from recurring I feed him with Veterinary Diets, Urinary S/O and filtered water only.
Do not feed with any other food.
And he's being really healthy since and active until the day he is missing.

This is some info about the WALTHAM-Urinary SO....
Still feeding all my cats with this.
Price at RM66.00 for 3.5 Kgs


THE PACKAGING



Detailed Description

SUMMARY:

ROYAL CANIN Veterinary DietTM/MC feline URINARY SO 30TM/MC (dry) and URINARY SOTM/MC IN GEL (canned) are complete and balanced diets for adult cats that have been formulated to aid in the management of feline lower urinary tract disease (LUTD).



INDICATIONS:

For cats with or at risk of developing feline lower urinary tract disease

Dry format:

Dissolve pure struvite urolith

Helps prevent the formation of struvite uroliths
Helps minimize the risk of formation of calcium oxalate
Helps minimize the risk of formation of brushite uroliths

Canned format:

Dissolve pure struvite uroliths

Helps prevent the formation of struvite uroliths

Helps minimize the risk of formation of calcium oxalate uroliths

Helps minimize the risk of formation of brushite uroliths

Aids in the management of idiopathic cystitis, which may present with the following signs:

Hematuria, dysuria, stranguria, pollakiuria

Inappropriate urination

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Growing kittens

Pregnant or lactating queens

Concurrent use of urinary acidifiers


RATIONALE:

Ten years ago, the majority of uroliths removed from cats were struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate). Since struvite formation is highly dependent on urine pH, diets designed for managing struvite uroliths encouraged the production of severely acidic urine and were highly restricted in magnesium.

In the past ten years, there has been an increase in the incidence of calcium oxalate urolithiasis. The dietary management tools for struvite (acidification and severe magnesium restriction) have been suggested to be risk factors for calcium oxalate urolith formation.

The management of calcium oxalate urolithiasis is far more challenging than struvite urolithiasis. In humans, calcium oxalate uroliths can form in urine across the full range of normal pH values (4.8-7.4). Urine pH manipulation cannot be used to reliably manage calcium oxalate urolithiasis, nor is the restriction of dietary calcium and oxalate effective in preventing oxalate urolith formation.

Diets specifically designed to prevent one type of urolith may greatly increase the risk of the other type of urolith forming. Waltham Science has taken a safer approach and invested years of research in developing a single diet which effectively reduces the risks for both types of uroliths simultaneously.

URINARY SO 30TM/MC (dry) and URINARY SO IN GELTM/MC (canned) are the first and only diets which have been clinically proven to reduce the risk of both struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis.

Urine Evaluation Using RSS:
The desire to develop diets which effectively manage both struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis in pets led Waltham to explore complex research methods for predicting urolithiasis risk in dogs and cats.

The predominant urolith in humans is calcium oxalate and more than 30 years ago, human urologists began looking at ways of predicting the risk of calcium oxalate formation in human patients.

The result was the development of a research methodology known as RSS or Relative SuperSaturation. This methodology involves the analysis of 12 constituents of a collected urine sample, as well as the determination of its pH. These data are then analyzed using a computer program that calculates the concentrations of the large number of possible interactive complexes between all ions present in this urine.

Finally, the program calculates the activity product of the urine sample for a given urolith and divides this number by the known constant thermodynamic solubility product for that urolith to determine RSS. If the sample�s activity product is less than the constant, then RSS < 1.0 and the urine is said to be "undersaturated" for that urolith.


URINARY SOTM/MC IN GEL (canned) and URINARY SO 30TM/MC (dry) are the first and only diets which have been clinically proven to aid in the management of both struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis in cats.

Idiopathic Cystitis:
A clinical study examined the recurrence of signs of lower urinary tract disease in 54 client-owned cats with idiopathic (or interstitial) cystitis. Recurrence rate for the year prior to the beginning of the study was 96%, with 52 cats having had at least one episode of LUTD signs in the previous year.

Signs did not recur in 89% of cats fed URINARY SOTM/MC IN GEL in canned format, while 61% of cats fed the URINARY SO 30TM/MC in dry format did not have a recurrence of signs over the 12 month trial period.

The proportion of cats in which clinical signs recurred was significantly lower in the canned diet group than in the dry group. Canned URINARY SOTM/MC IN GEL is the only diet proven to be beneficial in the management of feline idiopathic cystitis.



Special Tips:

1. URINARY SOTM/MC IN GEL (canned) and URINARY SO 30TM/MC (dry) are designed to increase urine volume and dilution by increasing body water turnover. This diet is designed to increase water intake in the cat and increase the volume and frequency of urination.

2 It is important to counsel owners to expect changes in drinking and urination behavior and to make sure they understand that these changes are desirable and beneficial for their cat.

3 Fresh water should be readily available at all times.

4 Owners may need to clean their cats litter box more frequently.

Tu lah...kesian ngan KIMI....aku asyik ingat macam mana dia kalau sakit balik, sebab memang dia tak boleh makan kibbles yang lain.Aku pernah try tak boleh...
dia akan dapat sakit tu balik...Urinary SO nie untuk banyak kan kencing dia...dan clean the bladder...
Dia akan kencing berdarah semula dan duduk saja kat dalam litter box tu...
