Our expert says:
Cats that are prone to crystals in the bladder, are likely to develop crystals again if the correct diet and preventive measures are not followed. There are different types of crystals though, needing different types of treatment approaches. Generally, diet changes are permanent, but added powders not necessarily. Your vet should know which type of crystal he is treating, and therefore whether the treatment will be long-term or permanent. As I say, it depends on the type of crystal and whether complicating or causative factors like infection was present or not.
Since I do not know which type of food was prescribed neither what type of crystal is involved, I cannot tell you wheteher the other cat is allowed to eat this food. Once again, your vet should be able to provide the answers. Give him a call.
