Cat with struvite crystals

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Help!! - last week I took my 2yr old neutered kitty to the emergency room because he was having trouble peeing and was dribbling urine through the house. After X-rays, Bloodwork, and Urinalysis they determined he had struvite crystals and put him on an IV with a Catheter- poor baby. They released him to me last Friday and prescribed a diet of S/D. Sounded great I was all ready to see my boy get better, however he won't eat the S/D. I then changed to the IVD Dissolution formula which he only likes to drink the gravy out of and won't eat the meaty parts. I am on my last effort now and have bought the IVD Control diet this is the maintenance diet but since I have a second cat with no problems I think this might be the only one I can leave out so that my sick baby can graze throughout the day and the other can eat it too without causing him problems. Tonight I am going to put the Dissolution formula in the Blender and see if I can get him to eat it that way.

Anyone have this problem before? I want my boy to get better but I feel that is dependent on him eating. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I am a worried mommy. Also he has 2 drinkwell fountains and 6 other waterbowls located in the house. Unfortunatly i only see about 2 tablespoons of pee twice a day in the box.

Talk to your vet there are other Rx makers that can be ordered

Also, ask your vet if you can mix another canned food in that your cat does like, with the S/D or IVD or whichever you choose. My cat Mew had struvites and she hated the S/D canned, but I mixed a small amount of Eagle Pack canned in and a bit of warm water and she ate it. (I admit she wasn't thrilled though) I also gave her the dry S/D -- that she liked.
