One of our cats has been diagnozed with crystals. She's on an antiinflamatory med and is doing better, but they also gave us a gel we need to give her daily and she hates it. The other option would be special cat food. I did some research and found that it might not be necessary to get the prescription cat food, but it would help to give her wet food at least in combination with the dry food and try to look for foods with more protein and less or no fillers like corn, rice etc.
I'm having a hard time picking a good and not too expensive brand.
What do you guys feed your cats?

If your cat has kidney issues you really need to ditch dry food all together. Cats are luckily not terribly expensive to feed so you could get a good quality cat food at a decent price and feed exclusively canned.

Some good brands:

Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul
Natural Balance
Taste of the Wild

Just some off the top of my head. You can check out Dog Food Analysis - Reviews of kibble and most of the high quality dog foods also make cat foods.
