SPECIFIC™ Struvite Management CCD is designed to help dissolve struvite bladder stones and reduce the risk of new ones forming.
For adult dogs suffering from struvite bladder stones
Why choose Struvite Management?
It makes your dog’s urine more acidic helping dissolve struvite stones.
- It promotes drinking to reduce the mineral concentration in the urine and increase urination, flushing out the stones
- Reduced content of magnesium and phosphorus to help reduce the formation of new stones
- Fish oil promotes healthy skin, coat and joints
- This diet is not suitable for dogs with calcium oxalate, urate or cysteine stones – for these dogs SPECIFIC™ Heart and Kidney Support and SPECIFIC™ Food Sensitivity recipes are recommended.

The daily requirement may vary depending on factors such as breed, environment, season and activity level. We recommend that you monitor your pet and adjust the feeding amount to fit their individual needs.
The increased sodium content promotes that the dog will drink more. This is associated with reduced urinary mineral concentrations and an increased urinary frequency.
By dividing the daily ration of SPECIFIC™ CCD Struvite Management into 3 or 4 meals, any postprandial increase of urinary pH is minimised.
Struvite urolithiasis in the dog is often associated with urinary tract infections. When a urinary tract infection is present, SPECIFIC™ CCD Struvite Management will only be efficacious if this is treated.
Struvite urolithiasis is only one type of urolithiasis which may occur in dogs. Identification of the type of urolith present in an affected patient is essential because different types of uroliths may require different dietary strategies (see the Managing Urolithiasis chart under Technical information on SPECIFIC™).
