But Hill’s Prescription Diet Feline c/d Multicare makes some stones disappear Diamonds are forever, but a recent study shows that by using Hill’s Prescription Diet Feline c/d Multicare, sterile struvite uroliths can be dissolved in as little as 14 days.1 Veterinary surgeons who have had to remove a urolith surgically, because it’s obstructive or not medically dissolvable, understand that there is a wide variety of stones out there. Send a canine or feline urolith to the Minnesota Urolith Center, by June to enter into a prize draw to win a sparkling diamond worth £2000 or €2000. Download a form at www.hillspet.co.uk/urolith or www.hillspet.ie/urolith to send along with the uroliths. Almost 80 percent of veterinarians polled on-line recently, used dietary means, either all or some of the time to treat FLUTD.2 It has been suggested that stones account for just 10 percent of non-obstructive and 15 percent of cases of obstructive FLUTD.3 Along with its ability to dissolve sterile struvite stones in as little as 14 days, Hill’s Prescription Diet Feline c/d Multicare dry pet food also has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids that help to break the cycle of inflammation and reduce discomfort in cats with FIC, making it an appropriate choice in most cases of FLUTD.
