Struvite stones are the most frequent urinary stones to occur in dogs and cats.

Struvite stones are formed in the bladder and may be precipitated into the urethra where they lead to pain and blockages of the urinary tract.

Male cats are mainly affected due to their long and thin urinary tract. Struvite stones are considered infectious stones as the urine pH is made more alkaline due to an infection with bacteria which produce urease.

The first signs of inflammation or a partial blockage in the tract include blood in the urine or frequent, uncomfortable urination. Should this occur, seek the advice of a vet.

The causes and risk factors for the formation of struvite stones are highly varied. They range from urinary tract infection and genetic predisposition to malnutrition over poor hydration.

To help dissolve struvite stones and prevent their reoccurrence, it is recommended that pets are provided with Struvisan in order to benefit from its urine-acidifying properties. Pets are happy to receive the paste.

Struvisan can be given for a period lasting up to six months. It is recommended that the advice of a veterinary professional is sought before using the product.

The pH of the urine is to be lowered or maintained at a level below 7 in order to prevent the formation of struvite stones. A value below 6.5 is already enough to begin dissolving the stones.
