Urinary Health Cat Foods: How Can It Help?
by Chelsea Sher
If you’re a cat parent looking for a natural recipe to support your cat’s urinary tract health, you may want to consider EVX Restricted Diet by Evanger’s. This line of dietary support foods is formulated by a nutritionist to help support common health issues in cats, including urinary tract health. Here are some key features of the EVX Restricted Diet:
- Acid Balance: helps maintain a healthy urinary pH between 6.2 and 6.5. Urine with a pH lower than 6.2 becomes too acidic and may cause calcium oxalate stones to form. A pH that exceeds 6.5 becomes too alkaline, and may cause struvite stones to form. Acid Balance is an effective way to get to a healthy urinary pH and may help reduce urinary tract issues.
- Complete balanced dinners: EVx foods are complete balanced dinners. Textures range from chunks in gravy to pate in broth and contribute to the functionality and palatability of the diet. These products do not use Agar or Carrageenan Gums like the majority of cat foods in the market. They are grain free and gluten free, and like all Evanger’s products, there is an emphasis on the use of fresh meat for obligate carnivores, which has so many essential amino acids naturally like Taurine, Cysteine, and L Carnitine.
- Novelty effect: EVx provides a solution to another problem: food wear-out. As a balanced dinner, these diets can be fed as an every-day meal and rotated to help avoid food wear-out. The novelty effect may wear out when a pet is not enriched by new foods, so these formulas are designed to be interchangeable for cats without specific health issues.
EVX Restricted Diet is a great option for cats needing a higher moisture formula and controlled magnesium and phosphorus diet. It is formulated to offer a low phosphorus value for cats, which may support kidney function, reduce the concentration of oxalate crystals, and renal issues . It is also a complete balanced dinner that is grain-free and gluten-free, with an emphasis on the use of fresh meat for obligate carnivores.
