    Product Details

    The bladder health of my dog Sparky is something I really pay attention to. He has had a few bouts with bladder stones, and it wasnt pretty. Hill's Prescription Diet u/d Canine Non-Struvite Urinary Care dry dog food has been created for the nutritional management of bladder health in dogs. Urinary tract distress can include straining to urinate, frequent urination, blood in the urine and a painful abdomen.
    Dogs need the right balance of minerals to maintain good bladder health. Excess minerals can encourage the formation of crystals in the urine, which can lead to the creation of bladder stones, causing discomfort and leading to more serious problems that may require the care of a veterinarian. The food your dog eats plays an important role in his or her overall health and well-being.
    Prescription Diet u/d Canine contains reduced levels of protein and calcium to help limit the formation of bladder stones; added taurine and high levels of L-carnitine to help maintain healthy heart muscle function; and added antioxidants to control cell oxidation and promote a healthy immune system. Sparky is now happy with his healthy bladder.
    • For dogs with crystals in the urine, bladder stone, frequent urination, difficulty urinating, and/or blood in urine
    • Reduced protein and calcium levels
    • Taurine and L-carnitine to maintain heart muscle function
    • Antioxidants

    My dog just had surgery to have bladder stones removed. Vet estimated he had around 100 stones all together in varying sizes. In order to possibly avoid a reoccurrence he suggested this food. I just hope it makes a difference. It is very expensive considering he will need this the remainder of his life and it doesn't offer any guarantees that bladder stones will not happen again. It was a rough surgery for him and it took him about 10 days before he was even acting like he felt better. He has transitioned to the food without issue. So far he seems to like it. He has always been a little picky with food but still eats what we give him. I hope he continues to eat it considering there isn't another option out there (which accounts for the higher cost also). I called this excellent but really don't know at this point.

    If you want your Dachshund to have a shiny coat ( must be good) The UD DIET 9 pellets and Tin ) is great. But to get rid of stones or prevent them it just doesn't work. I have 2 dachshunds ( twins) and the one has had stone removal surgery and the other has had 4 operations the last one being the dreaded Bowel bypass surgery from which he is still recovering. ( a last resort op) Both these dogs have been on the UD diet ( pellets and tins for over a year and in that time the second one had one op and the first one ( which was the reason to go on the diet) had 3 ops) the vet says its genetic which I think means "we don't know" but even so the validity of the prevention is non existent. We continue feeding them this because...... well what else do we do! We stuck to the diet religiously for nearly 2 years it must be noted.

    Great product but too highly priced.

    By Grady

    from Lincoln, michigan

    Comments about Hill's Prescription Diet u/d Canine Dry Food:

    The UD product has resolved my issue with my dogs bladder stones. The only problem is that is priced too high and there are no discount coupons available to help with the cost of keeping my pet healthy.
