My newly adopted rottweiler that I got from the shelter has many crystals in her urine. The vet has her on Hills SD can food for several weeks to dissolve the crystals. Then she is suppose to go on Hill prescription diet for the rest of her life. The first ingredient is corn! So I'm paying top dollar for corn. I'm thinking if I have to pay top dollar for corn, why can't I get a good high quality food. Does anyone know of any that is low in protein, sodium, phosphorus and magnesium? Also has anyone tried Solid Gold Berry balance?

Protein is not the problem. Your dog needs a prey model raw diet. It has the correct amount o fprotein, low sodium and the correct amount of phosphorus and magnesium. It is the amounts that nature intended. If you want to know more about the prey model raw diet, visit my web page listed in my sig. After you read it, if you have questions, come back and ask.

Unfortunately the crystals are there from cheap, corn based food.

What kind of canned SD did your vet put you on? Need to know this to give you further info...

Also, what KIND of crystals where found in her urine...this is also important to know to give you the right advice.

Unfortunately you don't want those crystals turning into stones...those are nasty things and expensive to get rid of...
