A. Prescription Diet c/d Urinary Stress contains a blend of nutrients that include omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants that help break the inflammatory cycle and counteract oxidative stress associated with FIC. It is formulated with controlled amounts of magnesium and phosphorus (building blocks of struvite) and optimal urine pH (6.2 to 6.4) that results in urine under-saturated for struvite.
