Hi! I'm new today and have been reading the thread on urine crystals. I have 2 cats (out of 4), all fixed females, who have been diagnosed with crystals after bladder infections, but I don't know what kind (Oh, the cats' ages are 12 and 9 yrs.). My vet I have now who diagnosed the 2nd cat (9 yrs) put her on Hill's x/d. Since I have 4 free feeding cats, and the x/d only comes in a small bag, I have been feeding them 1 bag of x/d, then 1- 20 lb bag of SD adult, etc. They seem to be doing alright, we have only had one more infection over the last 3? years, but since we got our Boxer, I have been learning about this whole new world of pet food (and forums) , and was considering changing their food. I'm afraid I am more confused than ever though, and can't even remember which stones they had (or if they had the same kind! ). I wrote down some info from the previous post, but I guess I will start with-where do you find these foods? Especially the alternate prescription foods? Is there a list somewhere? And does anyone know what the x/d is for? Thanks in advance for your help!
