Boy they really make that easy to read/.// lol....

IMHO it looks good to me but of course I am not the vet or the cat who has to eat it

I know, widest/longest/tiniest chart ever ! Magnesium same with C/D's max, phosphorous too. Can't imagine our vet won't approve, since in his opinion the magnesium & urinary acidfyer were the only necessary ingredients to look at. Must taste good too, as www.onlynaturalpet.com has a few pages worth of Uretic testimonials. I will start off SLOW, as Wysong recommends... 10% Uretic mixed with 90% C/D... and increase from there .

I've looked into the Wysong, I do not like the numbers.

Every animal is different. Male cats block very easily and some do need the perineal urethrostomy surgery regardless of what they eat.

I'm glad raw worked for you but I am not, nor will ever be, a raw feeder, nor do I believe it is a cure all, in fact I know it is not.
Otto, sorry I did not mean to say that my solution would work for everyone, I know it certainly does not. I just wanted to point out that food is not always the answer; it could just be that the animal is prone to crystals regardless of food or water. And I know not everyone is a raw feeder. I was just describing my own experience. I looked into c/d, Royal Canin and Wysong. Wysong was the best choice. I refuse to feed my dog or cats a food that doesn't have any actual meat in it. But I got lucky and the problem was resolved (and may I say, I don't think the problem was resolved by me feeding raw - that was her normal diet before the crystals). I think my dog's crystals were caused by not drinking enough water and not enough exercise (my stupid fault). I think it was the Biotic ph- and me adding chicken broth to encourage her to drink more fluids that resolved her problem. I don't feed my cats who are male raw because they won't touch it but I do feed them a combo of wet and dry and I pray every day they don't have any issues.

Thought I'd follow up on this thread and let everyone know that, after transitioning VERY slowly from Prescription C/D to Wysong Uretic, eveything is going very well... no sign of UTI's or the slightest discomfort . Thanks again for the the advice and suggestions!!

I have a cat who has urinary history. He never would eat the C/D, so the vet has him eating W/D which I think is a weight maintainance formula. I guess the vet thought he would be better eating this than the stuff out of the grocery store. He also gets ony filtered water. I have read a lot on this board about the dangers of cats only getting dry food. Lately I have tried adding water to the bowl of food. He eats all the food and drinks the water too. Is this better than only eating dry by itself.

That's great news, thanks for the update! Be sure to have a urinalysis done after he's been on the Wysong for about 2 months.

Yes, this is good! I do this too. Make sure to pick up any uneaten kibble fed this way, dry food should not be left to sit after it gets wet, bacteria forms more quickly on it.
