Hello, and welcome!

My name is ***** ***** I will be glad to help with your question about the cat food Dottie and her companion are now eating.

I'm sorry they don't like the food. Hills Science Diet makes a similar kind of prescription food called s/d, which they may like the taste of, better. This is only available through your veterinarian's office. Buy a can or two and see how it goes. Personally, I don't like the ingredients in Science Diet foods, and feel Royal Canin is superior, but, it's important that they eat a food that will prevent future crystals and also dissolve any crystals that are present at this time.

Here is more information about the food:

If they don't like the taste of the food, perhaps you can add some tuna water, drained from a can of regular tuna or mix in some plain, boiled skinless chicken breast containing NO onion or garlic (no seasoning at all) to help enhance the flavor for them.

I hope all will be well and Dottie will not have anymore problems with struvite crystals!
