I recognize this isn't entirely heart-related, so I apologize.
I am by no means a proponent of Science Diet or Hill's Prescription Diet foods. But... I need clarification on something. The Hill's c/d has a target urine ph of 6.2-6.4 (normal). I recognize that it has some acidifying qualities to it, but it's not nearly as bad as Hill's s/d, which has a target urine acidification of 5.9-6.1.
My understanding from several sources isthat Hill's s/d is a short-term treatment to bust up the crystals, and Hill's c/d is a maintenance diet to prevent their reoccurrence.
In any event, neither food is probably particularly suited for a kitty with a heart condition. The sodium levels are pretty high, with the exception of the Hill's c/d with seafood.
Felidae has very low sodium.
I also wanted to inform those using Wellness, that there was apparently some scandal where the company introduced grains into the product without announcing it. Don't know if it's true.
