MONGE VET CAT-URINARY STRUVITE 400G
MONGE VET CAT- URINARY STRUVITE
A recipe dedicated to sensitive cats requiring a specialized diet, used to accelerate the dissolution of crystals and urinary stones. Monge VetSolution urinary struvite contains unique ingredients such as superoxide dismutase (SOD) - an enzyme that avoids oxidative stress, xylooligosaccharides (XOS) - natural prebiotics that support intestinal immunity and is enriched with a functional Fit-aroma coating for a tasty and healthy approach for disorders of the urinary tract.
Fit-aroma in MONGE VETSOLUTION FELINE URINARY STRUVIT contains cranberry extract. Although sterile struvite is the most common type of struvite found in adult cats, nearly one-third of cats diagnosed with urolithiasis have significant bacteriuria. Escherichia coli is the most common bacteria, accounting for one-second to two-thirds of all infections. Struolite stones can be dissolved by inducing an acidic urine pH, increasing urine volume, and a magnesium and phosphorus restricted diet. However, urinary acidifiers do not prevent UTI bacteria.
The fit-aroma in MONGE VETSOLUTION FELINE URINARY STRUVITE contains cranberry extract which is rich in proanthocyanidins (PAC). PAC, through its unique molecular structures, binds to adhesins (virulent factors related to the adherence of bacteria to epithelial cells). They work by inhibiting different types of adhesins on the hair-like fimbriae that protrude from the surface of the bacteria. One is fructose, which inhibits MS fimbrial adhesins, the other is a high molecular weight inhibitor that neutralizes MR adhesins, preventing bladder colonization. oligomeric proanthocyanidins can prevent struvite-mediated peroxidative damage by restoring the intracellular activity of antioxidant enzymes, increasing the action and efficiency of SOD. Average time to dissolve the stones is: 8 weeks for infection-induced struvite and 2 to 4 weeks for sterile struvite stones.
Protein: the protein ratio is optimized (protein / kcal 90) to avoid weight gain, which may be a factor that increases the risk of recurrence of struvite stones
Fat: MONGE VETSOLUTION FELINE URINARY STRUVITE is formulated with the correct content of proteins and fats to minimize the formation of MAP micronutrients (ammonium and magnesium orthophosphate hexahydrate (V))
Minerals: MONGE VETSOLUTION FELINE URINARY STRUVITE is low in magnesium to limit the formation of crystalline formations and the recurrence of urolithase
