Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Hill's Prescription Diet s/d Urinary Care Original Canned Dog Food, including answers from our team.
After commencing Hills S/D food my dog is passing solid black stools.Is this normal?
Diet can certainly affect the stools and firm, almost black stools are perfectly normal. They are probably the ideal type of stool to be produced in fact. (If the stools are soft and a greenish-black colour then that is not good, but a very dark chocolate/black is ideal.
My dog is constantly weeing as she is on hills a/d but she is olso going when asleep
The weeing will not be due to the food. It sounds like she is incontinent. Why is she on this food anyway? There is more to this and you need to talk to your vet about it.
My poodle has stilvite crystals she has had the c/d but now has to have the s/d how much difference will this make and how long can she stay in this one
S/D is regarded as more effective at dissolving crystals and can be used for 2-3 months. It is not ideal to continue for longer than this as it is not a long-term diet. C/D is fine to give long-term and is intended to prevent new crystals from forming. It can dissolve any which might be present already but not as effectively sometimes as S/D.
