Demonstrated effectiveness

Validated in a multiphase study that measure sensitivity. For a positive result of 1+ higher, sensitivity was 91.5%, specifically was 90.9%, and the positive and negative predictive values (PPV and NPV) were 93.5% and 88.2%, respectively1:

  • Detects microhematuria with high sensitivity and specificity, despite significant effects of pH and proteinuria
  • Lowest reactivity threshold of 100 red blood cells(RBC)/mL, corresponding to approximately 12 RBC/hpf2
  • Offers wide applicability of use across multiple clinical situations and scenarios such as iatrogenic hematuria secondary to cystocentesis
  • Help to differentiate medical vs. behavioral causes of inappropriate elimination when used to monitor FLUTD patients
  • Easy to usein both the clinic and home settings

Be sure to talk to cat owners about the benefits of proactive monitoring their cat with FLUTD.

Manage urinary disease while supporting feline response to stress

Multifunction Urinary SO® + Calm offers complete and balanced nutrition in a formula that is palatable and highly digestible for adult cats. Recommended to help support patients with FLUTD, Urinary SO® + CALM promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals while providing calming nutrients.

Urinary tract health

Formulated to increase the urine volume and help in the management of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals through the use of Relative Supersaturations (RSS) methodology.

Claiming support

Contains hydrolyzed milk protein and L-tryptophan to help manage cats exhibiting fearful behaviors in stressful environments and social situations.


Stress and urinary disease

Stress is known to impact health, and cats with Feline Idiopathic Cystitis (FIC) appear to have an over-active stress response. As a result, lower urinary tract signs may arise from stressful home environments of behavioral circumstances.

Cat owners may not recognize the signs of stress and its impact on urinary health. Talking to them about their cat’s response and reactions could be a good proactive step.

Curious about recurrence and the long-term course of cats presenting with FLUTD?

FLUTD is associated with inappropriate elimination and clinical signs such as stranguria, pollakiuria, hematuria and periuria. No matter the underlying cause, recurrent episodes of FLUTD occur in >50.0% of cats1 and many of these cats may suffer from multiple relapses. Recurrent episodes with inappropriate elimination can lead owners to give their cats up to animal shelters or to decide on euthanasia. 2,3

What is RSS Technology?

Relative Supersaturation (RSS) technology uses a complex calculation that measures the concentration of key substances including those that form struvite or calcium oxalate crystals in urine. In the late 1990s, the researchers who developed the RSS methodology for humans collaborated with scientists at the Waltham Petcare Science Institute to validate Relative Supersaturation technology for use in cats and dogs.
