Hi! My kitty, Faith, was diagnosed with struvite crystals recently and she\'s currently eating Purina UR to help with the problem. I\'m finding a lot of information on the internet about struvite crystals and it\'s all a bit confusing. Does anyone have any suggestions about other foods or supplements that might help Faith? Thanks so much!

Any canned food will work, not just prescription food. Here's a web site that tells why any canned food is best for us to eat and to help prevent certain health issues:
