Supreme Vetcare Plus Urinary Tract Health Formula (1kg)
Rabbits have a very unusual calcium metabolism. In cats and dogs, calcium absorption is regulated at gut level, and is adjusted according to the body’s requirements. Any excess dietary calcium passes through and is excreted in the faeces. However, in rabbits, calcium absorption appears to be less well regulated, and indeed appears to be proportional to dietary calcium levels, irrespective of requirements. Excess absorbed calcium is therefore excreted through the urinary tract, often resulting in urine high in calcium precipitate. Sludge in the bladder can result in discomfort and disease in predisposed animals. VetCarePlus Urinary Tract Health Formula, provides a nutritionally complete and balanced, daily diet for rabbits of all breeds and life stages (from 20 weeks+). It is suitable for long-term feeding to rabbits that are susceptible to urinary tract disorders.
A generous blend of Cranberries and Bilberries provides antioxidants, which help to maintain urinary tract health.
Dandelion & Nettle combine to act as a gentle diuretic, and help stimulate routine renal function. Echinacea and added Vitamin C (500mg/kg), also help to support the immune system and fight infection.
