Just hoping for some advice - my 2.5 year old tom cat has just had surgery for a blocked urinary tract. He's recovering at the vets now but he's going to have to switch to a specialised food - the vet said those are the two main brands but I was wondering which one was better?
Ultima is obviously cheaper and if it's just as good as Royal Canin we'll buy that but I'll happily spend more to give him a better quality food. I'm a bit clueless about these things so any advice (or other brand recommendations) are much appreciated - tia!
Vets like Royal Canin. I use it (not the urinary version) and the boys get on well with it, better than other foods. I would go for the wet version though as cats prone to cystitis need water and they don't get as much with dry food (even taking drinking into account). Hills is good too I hear.
I have to say for a long while I thought all urinary foods were much of a muchness. That is until I put my own cat on hills c/d urinary stress it contains l-tryptophan and it is now my go to first choice urinary diet food for cars.
