Last October, I was working on a project at home when my kitty Francis started making a really sad meow sound that was very out of character. I called the vet and they said that I should bring him in. When we got there I found out that his urethra was blocked and urine was backing up in his body. We had to put him on dialysis and have surgery to remove the struvite crystals that were blocking him up. The reason he was getting them was because of his dry food diet. After switching him to a protein rich wet food diet he’s been doing just fine and he and I couldn’t be happier. He’s my best friend and life partner and I’m so happy that a diet change was able to help keep him in my life.
