    Hi I am new to this forum and would like to ask if there is a mfg. food that would be good for him. The vet currently has him on Hill’s C/D, the initial test showed him to have 11-20 crystals in the test urine.

    Would something like one of the Orijen foods be good to help modify his urine pH (8.0) and eliminate the crystals? We have 3 other dogs and my husband is not willing to go the homemade food route.

    I also feed Dr. Jone’s Ultimate Canine health formula powder to all the dogs, they also get some raw whole milk to go with the powder.

    Your points of view would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you!

    You can give a supplement with dl-methionine like Wysong Biotic ph (-) or Swanson Pet High Alkaline Lawn Aid or similar product, and cranberry/d-mannose to help with the urine pH and urinary tract health.
