Has your pet been medically diagnosed with Struvite Stones & Crystals?
Symptoms include frequent urination, straining to urinate, abnormal urinary stream (a few drops at a time), urinating in inappropriate places, and cloudy or bloody urine.
Struvite stones and crystals first occur from a UTI (urinary tract infection), usually from a staph infection. The bacteria builds up as an inflammatory response, and acts as glue that allows the crystals to form. The crystals then bind together to create uroliths, commonly known as bladder stones. Because of the bacteria present in the bladder, antibiotics are prescribed.
Crystals thrive in an alkaline environment from diets that are high in cereal, cooked vegetables, and cooked meat.
I have an 8-week raw food diet specifically designed to naturally create an acidic urine, preventing the crystals from forming. Once the PH levels have reduced, a permanent raw diet can be implemented.
Please note, it is important that you have a diagnosis from your vet to ensure the stones are struvite. Other stones which make up about 6-8% of cases are purines, which can be present in certain breeds such as Dalmatians & English Bulldogs. The stones develop because of a genetic abnormality. Purines do not respond to a raw food diet that is highly acidic (raw meats) which is what my meal plans are based on. You will need to seek an holistic vet if you are wanting to proceed with a raw food diet.
About the Package…
Your pet is free from illness, such as heart, liver and kidney disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, IBD (irritable bowel disease), allergies (both environmental and food). Your pet may have other health issues that I offer in my additional meal packages.
Your pet must be an adult, 12+ months for dogs and cats or 18-24 + months for large and giant breed dogs.
You may already be a raw feeder and want to ensure your pet is receiving a balanced diet, or you may be new to raw feeding.
My meal packages offer the traditional BARF style of feeding for cats and small dogs and a BARF diet with a twist suitable for medium to large breed dogs, or dogs of all sizes with a healthy appetite. A BARF diet consists of whole or minced raw meaty bones, muscle meat, fruit & vegetables, offal and a range of natural food supplements to enhance the diet. The diet is simple, convenient and easy to follow without compromising on your pet’s health.
You make the food yourself, so you know exactly what your pet is consuming. I always recommend human grade ingredients because if you can’t eat the food, then your pet shouldn’t either!
Once your pet has reached their health goal, you maintain it with the raw diet provided for the rest of their life.
