Specific Crystal Prevention FCD/FCW

Struvite and calcium oxalate are the most common causes of urinary tract problems in cats. Specific FCD Crystal Prevention prevents the formation of both types of crystals. In addition, it treats any struvite crystals already present in the body. FCW is the wet food variant of FCD kibble.

Specific FCD can be used for:

  • Dissolving existing struvite crystals.
  • Preventing the formation of new struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
  • Reducing urinary tract disorders such as (idiopathic) cystitis.
  • Healthy cats up to 8 years of age, to prevent urinary crystals from forming.
  • Animals with poor digestion/gastrointestinal problems.

Not suitable for:

  • Combination with other urinary acidifiers (such as Methigel)
  • Kittens under 6 months
  • Pregnant or lactating cats
  • Animals with other conditions, unless recommended by your veterinarian.

Key features of Crystal Prevention:

  • In diets with a low RSS value (RSS = the risk of developing new crystals when using a specific food) the components are dissolved, and the crystals do not form as a result. This food has a low RSS value, so there is a minimal risk of new crystals forming.
  • Reduced phosphorus and magnesium content, the building blocks for struvite stones, to prevent the formation of struvite crystals.
  • The effect of FCD is not based on a high sodium content.
  • The use of this food ensures that the pH of the urine is below 6.4. Thanks to this pH value, any existing struvite stones are dissolved and new stones are less likely to form.
  • High quality and easily digestible ingredients ensure optimal intake of nutrients, and the cat may produce fewer stools as a result.
  • For cats with recurrent idiopathic cystitis, the wet food (FCW) is recommended.
  • FCD also contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids to support the skin, coat and healthy joints.
