For the study, two groups of cats were formed at the age of 1 to 4 years in the amount of 6 animals each. According to research it was found that cats are more likely to suffer from urolithiasis than cats. At the same time, in the percentage ratio of the difference between castrated and non-castrated cats with urolithiasis, it was not expressed explicitly (29.01% and 31.49%, respectively, of the total number of sick animals). The highest percentage of incidence of urolithiasis was recorded in sterilized cats (23.98%). It was found that after feeding animals with commercial feed in the studied time there is a decrease in the number of struvites in the urine. The greatest decrease in struvite count was determined after feeding cats with Hills prescription diet urinary care c/d multicare. There is also a change in the acid-base state of urine when feeding Hills prescription diet urinary care c/d multicare by 10.9% and 13.1% and Hills prescription diet urinary care c/d multicare by 12.3% and 9.5% to 3 and 6 months, respectively. Significant differences in urine density after feeding with commercial feed and homemade food have not been established.
