The dog in question has been eating Hills c/d for some months since he was diagnosed with struvite crystals, but his latest tests show he's just about fine. We're trying to get the owners (our friends) to switch foods. Does anyone have recommendations for an alternative food? No raw sorry, owners have specified they don't want raw at this point.

Thanks!

Hi - I've been told to add a liquid calcium tablet to food for prevention.  It's a little gloppy when you cut into it but doable.  Anyway, I had sweeties on I/D and have now started cooking for them.  Right now it's chicken with pasta-or-rice-or-boiled potato(skin on), along with dermcap oil, mutivit, cannola oil, sardines, bonemeal.  My sweeties are thriving on it in general.  This recipe came from my wonderful vet via a professional chef.  I also have a beef recipe but one of the princesses doesn't seem to like beef (except filet mignon).  Would love to hear comments on this.

Thanks for the recipe and rfor sharing! I'm unsure about the quantities on supplements so I might get them to consult the vet, but am trying to help them by doing some research first. I've heard that cranberry juice is good too, but am reading up a bit more on that as well. Does anyone else have any advice? Much appreciated thanks!

Just wondering  why you want to change the food????  Usually when a cat or dog have to be on c/d its not a good idea to change foods, even though they are doing good, because it usually just causes crystals again. Just curious if there was a reason why you want to change foods????

I would not feed your dog any dogfood containing Corn of any kind.

Try wellness dog food or california brand.

Maybe a fish based food with low protein as well.
