Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Diet recommendations for ammonium urate stones please?
Hello! I recently had surgery to have ammonium urate stones removed. I am doing great, however I am very susceptible to recurrence. I am looking for suggestions for canned foods that will help me avoid this. Here is what my Dr. suggested:
canned foods designed for cats w/ liver or renal failure w/ the following characteristics:
Low in purine precursors (Purine precursors would turn into purines, causing the uric acid to be higher) promote less acidic urine (pH +7.0) and less concentrated urine.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
THANK YOU in advance for any help anyone can offer; feel free to pmail me as well.
Love and kisses
