The term “lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD)” refers to a group of diseases that can affect the bladder and / or urethra of cats. Unfortunately, the clinical signs are rarely indicative of a particular disease. There are several diseases that share the same clinical signs of FLUTD, but in most cases turns out to be idiopathic FLUTD (ie you do not know the cause).
The FLUDT is seen most commonly in young cats that in older adults with a peak incidence around 4-7 years. In dogs instead bladder diseases tend to increase proportionally with age of the animal, as the dilution of the urine increases the risk of urinary tract infections.
In young cats 60% of cases are idiopathic cystitis (FIC) : the 20% is due to urolithiasis and the 20% to the formation of urethral plugs.
In older cats bacterial infections are frequent while it is difficult to find them in the urinary tract of a young cat. The reason is the different weight that present the urine of the two populations feline: the high concentration of the urine, which is typical of the young cats, does not allow bacterial growth, in older cats, instead of the urinary tract infections (UTI), become common because their urine very often are not very concentrated (1025-1020).
The most frequent symptoms of FLUDT are : dysuria (difficult issue of the urine), pollakiuria (increased frequency of urination), hematuria, stranguria, periuria (elimination in inappropriate places), vocalization and agitation in an attempt to urinate and urethral obstruction.
Vetcare urinary is a nutritional supplement specifically designed to strengthen the body’s natural defenses to protect the lower urinary tract of the dog and of the cat (FLUTD, idiopathic cystitis, urolithiasis, urinary infections – UTI). Thanks to a balanced intake of L-methionine and ammonium chloride also promotes the acidification of the urine.
Glucosamine sulfate and shark cartilage: bring in a balanced and comprehensive glycosaminoglycans, molecules critical to create an elastic layer of protection of the lining of the bladder that the most sensitive is often subject to inflammation and infection.
L-methionine and ammonium chloride are substances which if taken regularly help a progressive acidification of the urine pH reducing the incidence and severity of episodes of FUS
Complex herbal protective lower urinary tract
Vaccinum Macrocarpon extract (cranberry) disinfectant and anti-inflammatory, especially active as an adjuvant in the lower urinary tract infections (cystitis). In particular, this would be due to the type A proanthocyanidins (PACs), which is abundant in the fruit, which act by adhering tissue and forming a sort of “molecular protective layer” that opposes and rejects the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria.
Bearberry extract the urinary antiseptic: this plant is used as a disinfectant of the urinary tract, as hydroquinone, has strong antibacterial, undergoes some changes in the liver and is then eliminated by the kidneys, thereby focusing in urine.
Orthosifon S. extract is known for its diuretic action and purifying, and is much used in all those cases where it is desired activity of that kind, also accompanied by an action favoring the elimination of uric acid. It increases the volume of urine output so moderate.
