FLUTD is a condition often associated with the formation of crystals in the urinary tract that can cause numerous painful symptoms for your cat. The two most common types of crystals that form in the cat`s urinary tract: struvite and oxalate. Prescription Diet Feline C/D is formulated to provide nutritional management of cats with struvite-related FLUTD. Struvite crystals are usually formed in response to urine that is saturated with magnesium, ammonium and phosphorus combined with an alkaline urinary pH.
