K9 Food Balancer - Low Purine Formula
you have a
Dalmatian, especially a male, you should learn everything
you can about purines, allantoin conversion, and uric acid stone
formation. Dalmatians represent an estimated 80% of the dogs that have
this genetic, potentially life threatening condition. Bulldogs and
Russian Terriers also seem to be genetically predisposed.
Purines are a nutrient found in many common pet food ingredients, but
are especially concentrated in organ meats and sea foods. Breeds that have this genetic disorder have a
defective enzyme that is responsible for breaking down purines. This eventually leads to uric acid bladder stones if steps aren't taken to
prevent this. Over time, these stones become large enough to interfere
with urination. This is a life threatening situation and can only be
resolved by surgically removing the stones.
It's important to restrict the protein intake for these
dogs and to use highly digestible, quality meats. Organ meats and
sardines are especially high in purines and should always be avoided.
Vegetables containing purines should be fed in moderation such as
asparagus, spinach, green peas, lentils, and oatmeal.
