unfortunatley it is in the multivitamin "Cardiostrength". I really like it
because it has all the supplements that are good for the heart until I found
out they are putting in magnesium :(

I used Cardiostrength in 3 cats for three years with no problems. A stone
would be a build up of crystals, more like struvite which is form from the
acidity of the urine. It can be worse with dried food as it is more
My 'blocked' cat needed special food for 3 months to correct this inbalance
and had to go on wet food for life. You can have a urine sample tested for
struvite and other crystals at your vets.
