These recipes are oxalate free. No need to worry about urine pH again or your dog turning up its nose to commercial specialty foods. These formulas also have the appropriate amount of calcium for general health, yet low enough to aid in the management of oxalate crystals and stones.
They exceed the nutritional standards required by AAFCO and the NRC for your dog's daily nutrition yet meet the NRC recommendations for daily minimum requirements for protein and amino acids and should be used under the guidance of your veterinarian.
Although these meal plans are virtually oxalate-free, they are not a substitute for medical monitoring or intervention. Your dog's urine should be checked every 3 months during the first year on the program and then routinely based on the schedule recommended by your veterinarian. Often, dogs on these diets will have struvite crystals in their urine. Your veterinarian needs to advise you on the importance and/or make recommendations if that occurs.
We offer advice on meal plan preparation, storage and feeding directions. All medical concerns about your dog's diet need to be discussed between you and your veterinarian.
