PremieR Nutrição Clínica (PremieR Clinical Nutrition) Urinário Estruvita (Urinary Struvite)

PremieR Clinical Nutrition (PremieR Clinical Nutrition)- Urinary Struvite for Cats is an auxiliary food in the Super Premium category, which helps in the treatment of struvite urinary calculi.

Some alterations in food can be beneficial to patients with urinary calculi.

The objective of the diet is to control the urinary pH, reduce ingestion and urinary excretion of substances which form calculi, and helps in the dissolution of existing calculi.

This food must be used on its own, in general, for the period of 4 to 5 weeks, depending on the animal, always under a professional’s supervision.

Complete Nutrition Feeding Guide Recommendations Content The Ideal Quantity
  • Vitality

    Excess of reduced bases: This nutritional strategy is used to dissolve the struvite urinary calculi.

    Controlled urinary pH: Promotes a moderated acidification of urine (pH 6.2) to help dissolve existing struvite urinary calculi, without promoting the formation of calcium oxalate urinary calculi.

    Lower levels of magnesium: -
    To lower the availability and consequential ingestion of this mineral, reducing the formation of struvite calculi.

    Balanced Protein: -
    Discourages the formation of struvite urinary calculi because it reduces the amount of urinary ammonia , which is the main structural component of this calculus.

The first industrialized foods that showed up in Brazil in the 1970s were the products that are currently referred to as “combat line”. Although they’ve been around for a long tim, they conserve the same characteristics: minimal nutritional levels, low cost, low quality ingredients, variable formula (which means that in the absence of one of the ingredients, or the rise in its price, the manufacturers replace it with another of similar quality, which can cause diarrhea, in addition to the bad digestion of the food) and vegetable sources of protein and fat.

The combat line is commercialized mainly in non-specialized channels (supermarkets for example) at extremely accessible prices. However, they are foods of a low nutritional density, making the animal ingest larger quantities to feel satisfied and get the minimal needed ingredients out of the product, which presents a disadvantageous cost-benefit ratio.

In the 1980s, more elaborate products appeared, known as the Premium type, with higher nutritional levels than the combat variety, more palatable (tastier) and with a bit more rigor in quality control and raw materials. Nevertheless, it followed the same nutritional philosophy of the variable formula and was made up mostly of ingredients of vegetable origin. In addition, differentials such as colorants and artificial "culinary" flavorings were introduced besides formats that aimed to be pleasing only to the eyes of the owners of cats and dogs, without adding any nutritional value to the food.

The Super Premium foods date from the 1990s, and PremieRpet® was a pioneer in launching this line in Brazil. It presents the most recent nutritional advances and modern production technology adding high quality ingredients, in addition t nutritional supplements which offer more quality of life to the animal in the long term, and consequently more longevity. They are mainly sold through the specialized channels (veterinary clinics, pet shops and pet food stores), present high nutritional value and focus on the quality of ingredients and performance of animals in the diverse stages of life. The Super Premium foods present a better cost-benefit ratio because they provide high digestibility and energetic density allowing for high nutritional quality, besides a smaller ingestion of food. In addition to this, they reduce the risk of nutritional disease throughout the lives of dogs and cats.

Did you know?

Super Premium foods present the highest levels of nutrition, covering not only the minimum nutritional requirements set forth by the Conselho de Nutrição Animal do NRC (National Research Council) and the AAFCO, but also the most demanding physiological conditions, such as reproduction, training and the recovery of pathological conditions of dogs and cats. The optimal nutritional levels must be balanced between the minimum and maximum nutritional levels as presented by the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials); These levels are determined by live research, that seek optimal coat conditions, muscle development and above all, optimal performance in reproduction and the immune system.
