help provide a greater understanding of how to treat the cat with special diets.

the complaint of straining for a week during urination. Ultrasonographs indicated the existence of two
calculi in the bladder that were also detected by radiographic examination (7 mm in diameter each). Bladder
stones were getting smaller by dissolution diets therapy. In this case, the cat was treated by melox 1.5 mg/
ml (dosage 0.1 mg/kgBW) for 14 days, tramadol for 28 days (2mg/kg BW) and also special diets (struvite).
Conclusion: After a month treatment,the stones were almost cannot be seen radiographically. This report
