Title: What should I feed my cat with urinary problems?
If you have not already done so, read our article to find out how to spot a possible urinary problem in your cat - Does my cat have a urinary problem?
It is important to find a cat food that contains low levels of minerals as they contribute to the formation of urinary crystals and stones, such as magnesium, phosphorus and calcium. This cat food should also make your cat's urine slightly acidic to prevent crystals from forming. One such cat food for urinary tract and liver health is Sanabelle Urinary.
Sanabelle Urinary has an adapted protein and mineral content with an optimal amount of fresh, tasty and high-quality poultry and liver, which gives the food a great taste. Due to the reduced protein and mineral content, Sanabelle Urinary is particularly suitable for adult cats with feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) and urethral obstruction. It also helps prevent the formation of urinary crystals by acidifying the urine (6-6.5pH).
In addition, Sanabelle urinary contains a special water transit agent which helps to encourage thirst and promotes urine formation. This helps to flush out crystals from the urinary tract. As Sanabelle Urinary helps to break down the crystals in the urinary tract, it is normal to find a little blood in the urine as the crystals can irritate the urethra during elimination. However, if the bleeding persists for a prolonged period of time, you should see a doctor immediately as it may be a life-threatening condition.
Some pawrents are hesitant to feed their cats dry food because dry food or kibble hydrates itself by using the body's water balance. Pawrents who have concerns can rehydrate the kibbles with water (optional). To do this, pawrents can soak the kibbles in water at a temperature of 40 Degrees Celsius. This will help soften the kibbles, prevent unnecessary water loss, and preserve the nutritional content.
