Dog Treats for Struvite cyrstals

by Sheila
(Rochester, NY)

My 1 year old corgi has had struvite crystals since 11 weeks. I now have her on RC Urinary SO for about 3 weeks. She loved her snacks/treats. What snacks can she have? She likes milk bones, fresh bananas, green beans, apples, and just about any other treats.

I was told not to give her any treats while she was on S/O. Do they make special treats for urinary problems such as struvite crystals?

Dog with struvites
by: K9DogTreats

Hi Sheila.

Our dog was diagnosed with struvites 5-6 years ago.
We were told to feed him CD diet. He has not had a recurrence.

In the meantime, we researched the condition and you can find info in the articles connected to this link:

Dog bladder stones

You will find a list of foods that promote acidic urine in one of the posts. We supplement his food with dark meat chicken. Wheat is acidic promoting so we bake wheat based dog treats for him.

Struvites dissolve in urine that is in the acidic range (pH < 6.0).

We are not veterinarians and strongly advise you check with your vet before making any changes to recommendations.
