Veterinary diet 4vets Urinary Non-struvite is a complete dietetic food for dogs suffering from urinary tract disorders. It assists in the treatment of cystitis and struvite stones due to the reduced content of magnesium, proteins and the acidifying properties of urine. Diet can be an element of prophylaxis after the disappearance of symptoms. It contains a low content of sodium and potassium, which has a positive effect on the functioning of the kidneys and also accelerates the dissolution of residual stones.
High-quality protein: The feed is based on complete, low-fat animal protein sources. The addition of a chicken egg increases the limiting amino acid ratio to a level that ensures the correct proportions in the use of all amino acids. The limited supply of high quality proteins covers the body's demand for amino acids, but does not cause excessive catabolism and the formation of products that could disturb the functioning of the kidneys.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids - derived from both animal raw materials (salmon oil) and linseed oil, ensure maximum involvement of polyunsaturated fatty acids of the Omega-3 and Omega-6 families in biochemical control of pro-inflammatory cytokine formation and by specific inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX-2) activity show analgesic properties.
Low sodium and potassium content - in the Urinary Non-Struvite veterinary diet, the composition of the raw material has been selected so that the diet is low in sodium and potassium, thanks to which the osmotic pressure exerted by electrolytes is reduced. This has a beneficial effect on the functioning of the kidneys and accelerates the dissolution of residual struvite stones.
Cranberry - hippuric acid contained in it has a bacteriostatic effect, moreover the presence of proanthocyanidin, combining with the bacterial fimbria, inactivates the adhesins, thus preventing them from adhering to the cells of the epithelium of the urinary tract. Cranberry is effective in lowering the pH of the urine, which results in less bacterial growth in the bladder and urinary tract. Thanks to these properties, it supports the process of curing infections and chronic recurrent urinary tract infections in dogs.
Dried brewer's yeast (source of prebiotics: mannan-oligosaccharides and β-glucans) - has a beneficial effect on the intestinal flora. Yeast has a high biological value also due to the high content of B vitamins. The use of yeast in the nutrition of young dogs is particularly important as it stimulates a wide range of immune responses.
Yucca Mojave - the presence of this ingredient stimulates digestive functions, the absorption of nutrients from the digestive tract and stimulates its peristalsis. Added to the diet, it reduces intestinal gas production and the intensity of stool odor. Additionally, Mojave yucca saponins have antibacterial activity that suppresses intestinal protozoal infections and polyphenols are anti-inflammatory.
Psyllium seeds (Plantago psyllium L.) - combine the properties of highly soluble fiber with a low level of fermentability in the small intestine, have a positive effect on improving intestinal peristalsis. In addition, they have water binding and gelling properties, thus normalizing the passage of food.
