Wysong Uretic is a food formulated for cats prone to urolithiasis, but also an excellent maintenance diet. Contains no excess minerals and helps maintain an acidic urine.
Urolithiasis refers to the formation of stones (calculi or uroliths) in the urinary tract. Calculi can be found anywhere in the urinary tract, in the kidneys, the ureter or the bladder, but are most common in the bladder.
Wysong diets are formulated with the understanding that an optimal diet should match genetic makeup. Over two decades of research and results prove that the Wysong nutritional innovations, using nature as a principle, are simply a great approach if health is the goal.

Any sudden change in diet may result in digestive disturbances. Wysong Diets are unique formulations, and should be gradually introduced. Over a period of 15 days, mix Uretic with the present diet beginning at about 10% and then gradually increase proportions. If difficulties arise, return to a smaller percentage and try again.
The amount fed should be adjusted to maintain an ideal body weight. Do not overfeed, regardless of the pet’s eagerness. Over consumption leading to digestive upset is the most common difficulty pets have adjusting to this highly concentrated, unique nutritional formulation.
Wysong advises against feeding any one pet food exclusively. Feeding one food fosters the development of ingredient intolerances (allergies) and other health ailments. You would never eat one food exclusively, and neither should your pet.
Always keep fresh, pure water available and offer plenty of fresh air, sunshine, exercise, and big doses of your tender loving care.
The following amounts suggested should be decreased in proportion to the amount of supplementation with fresh whole foods or canned diets. Additionally, factors such as stress, amount of activity and breed of pet may make it necessary to adjust the amount of feeding.
If fed singularly on any given day, the following general instructions apply.
|Weight of Cat ||5 lbs ||10 lbs ||15 lbs ||20 lbs|
|Daily Feeding ||1/4 - 1/2 cup ||1/2 - 3/4 cup ||1/2 - 3/4 cup ||3/4 - 1 cup|
