Hills prescription diet C/D has been developed for the nutritional management of dogs with urinary-tract disease associated with crystal struvite. Urinary-tract disease is associated with the build-up of crystals and stones in the urinary-tract that can cause painful and often bloody urination. Hills canine C/D, available from VioVet, is formulated specifically to provide effective management for dogs with struvite-related urinary-tract disease and associated complaints. The diet contains reduced levels of phosphorous and magnesium. It is important to acknowledge the additional information provided beneath the prices to ensure your dog receives the best care.

My dog will NOT eat C/D diet food 13th Jul 2014
Hi, This diet has been recommended by our vet, I got some dry & wet food from you recently but my dog REFUSES to eat it although he does on occasion NIBBLE at the dry food but will not eat the canned(wet) food we have run out of ideas, We have tried everything IE. pussy cats are after it (typical dog he hates cats) etc.etc. Is there ANYTHING at all that we could add to it to make it more palatable for him as we are having to throw away a vast amount of what we give him and it is too expensive to keep throwing away.
Thanking you in anticipation.

This is a difficult problem, but lots of what dogs (and people) eat is an acquired taste. The only way he will start to eat it and actually quite like it, is if he comes to eating it regularly. This will not happen if he can eat a decent amount of any other food. Unless he is already a skinny dog (very unlikely with a fussy dog) then you should continue to offer him some of his preferred food, but at most it should be less than a quarter of what he is able to eat in a day. I would put down a measured amount twice a day of his old food, plus a realistically small amount of c/d. He will of course eat his preferred food first, but hunger will get him to eat the c/d. If he is very fussy he might go hungry for a few days, but he will soon start to reluctantly eat the c/d. In time you can stop his preferred food and just give him c/d. You will find he eats less food in total when this happens, but this might well be a good thing. Most dogs eat more than is good for them anyway. It might seem a shame, but he would probably be healthier eating less anyway.
Hunger will always work if you persist and are stronger willed than your dog. It is up to you.
If your dog is already skinny then you have to be more gradual with this procedure, but it will still work in time.
