For decades, management of feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD) focused on adjusting pH, reducing select minerals, and more recently increasing urine dilution and addressing stress through environmental enrichment and drug therapy. Yet, recent and on-going research demonstrates there’s more to the story than macro and micronutrients. In this presentation, Terri will discuss a range of nutritional challenges the cat faces that can trigger lower urinary tract diseases – from factors that can induce uroliths to deficiencies that can affect neurological resilience. With a nod to the emerging and evolving technology of metabolomics find out how the whole-food matrix may well offer ways to mitigate or prevent FLUTD. You’ll learn about commercial pet food pitfalls; discover clues from a whole prey diet; and take away some integrative tips to boost feline well-being.
