u/d hills food (urinary tract)

Hi there, I’m pretty new to this and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on the food my dog is on.
He had stones in his bladder and I was told by the vet that he has to have the hills prescription urinary tract u/d wet food, and he isn’t allowed ANYTHING else other than cucumber as a treat ( which is hard), the food also quite costly, Has anyone used this before? or know of an alternative that I can buy, and also is this food any good as I’ve read reviews that its not and causes dogs to put weight on which mine has. - the PH levels in his last urine test were fine but im still told that he has to have this food and I cant even change to the dry version which he prefers
Thanks guys , really appreciate any help/advice

Nutriment do a low purine raw complete. Not aware of any kidney supportive foods of wet complete &/or other types…sorry.

Welcome to the forum lauren1984!
Hopefully we may be able to help you as there are already suggestions of foods that other forum members have mentioned in a thread here: https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/feeding-dogs-with-health-problems/14/-cocker-spaniel-with-struvite-stones-and-other-health-issues/1306/msg5235#msg5235

Elsewhere in the forum a member helpfully makes us aware that using supplements to prevent lawn burn may “leave your pet more prone to urinary stones and infections”. This thread is here: https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/general-dog-chat/10/lawn-burn/906/msg2449#msg2449

… quick mention of another thread on the forum which may be useful to you - and is perhaps more relevant - with forum members discussing Calcium Oxalate Crystals:

David has written another of his excellent and informative articles here which hopefully will help you further :
