This is from the RC website - should Charlie eat both the dry and canned or would you just stick to the dry based on the ingredients.

I'm not sharky, but I can state the obvious!

The canned ain't so great, by-products in it.

The dry has corn, but corn is good for maintaing urine pH. You see corn in a lot of urinary tract health foods.

I honestly would go for the dry & find a non Rx wet, sharky can offer good suggestions.

for the first few months till you REALLy find out ( ask White cat lover)if he needs a RX for life do both the wet and dry ... no the wet ingrediants dont turn me on but wet is going to help more than dry prevent futher bladder issues... Does your vet carry any other diets?? I beleive SD c/d is chn by products over the abiguious meat by products

Personally I like RC over SD. But I could add some boiled chicken to his diet with no problems - think that would be ok?

He does drink water on a regular basis, so I'm not too worried if he just eats the dry - I didn't like the ingredients in the canned either!

Chicken has a wrong Calcium and phos and mag level to be served alone... What was the ph ??? If high like say 7 ... Use lightly cooked tofu

Well it would not be alone - it would just be added as shredded pieces in with the dry food for him. I'll have to look at the vet records or call them tomorrow.
