Description

Hills S/D available from VioVet

Hills prescription s/d feline diet is carefully formulated to provide the correct nutrients and in the appropriate promotions to help support the treatment of cats with Urinary Tract Disease. Urinary tract disease in cats is often caused by the formation of mineral-based crystals and stones in the bladder and urethra that can cause discomfort, bloody urine and even life-threatening obstruction. In cats, crystals made up of struvite are the most commonly identified cause of urinary tract disease.
