Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

The drop in the cell count, if normal before - is likely from bleeding during surgery.

This is something that will rebound from normal bone marrow production and should not be a long term concern.

There is also not a specific food for this.

For this reason we should focus on the long term problem you will face, the struvite stones.

For this - Hill's C/D is a diet that most choose due to its research and formulation to alter the urine pH, decreasing struvite crystal and stone formation.

That is something I would place the focus on. Eating and nutrition alone will help with the red blood cells, not a specific diet. - so this is why we should focus on the stone diet as above.
