Product Description

Cystine stones (uroliths) occur when an inherited defect of the kidneys causes a build up of cystine in the dog’s urine. Cystine is an amino acid that is filtered and reabsorbed by the kidneys. The build up of this amino acid in the urine leads to the formation of cystine stones. Certain breeds are more affected than others by cystine urolithiasis. These include English Bulldogs, Newfoundlands, Dachshunds, Chihuahuas, and Mastiffs. Mixed breed dogs with the ancestry of these genetically susceptible breeds can also be affected.

Key Benefits

  • Low purine proteins combined with the production of alkaline urine help reduce the risk of urate stones
  • Moderate quantities of high quality proteins and controlled methionine and cystine levels
  • Enhanced levels of linoleic acid, zinc, and biotin help to promote a healthy skin and shiny coat
  • Naturally preserved to ensure freshness and quality

NOTE: Royal Canin veterinary diets require a veterinary prescription. This product will not be shipped until a copy of a valid prescription authorization is faxed to 1-800-619-7973 or e-mailed to

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog loves it, no digestive problems when I changed her diet. Love the service to the door and savings through the easy automatic delivery. Texture and smell of food was very inviting to my dog. April 26, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great idea but hard to use I was delighted that a great company like Royal Canin was producing a product specifically addressing cystinuria. Unfortunately this food does not get our canine stamp of approval-they just hate it and will carefully pick any food (ie Royal Canin adult medium kibble) nuggets out, leaving the Urinary UC. They will lose weight rather than eat it. I am still trying to find ways to disguise it but so far to no avail. I am also unable to find the % protein listed on the bag. I would love RC to address both of these issues. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The food we needed, expedited! Our dog had unexpected bladder stone surgery. And this food was recommended by our vet, only they didn't carry this formula and it would have taken a week to get in. We were able to get the food in 2 days from and at a discount. The dog seems to like it, it does have a strong smell and we 'wet' the food- he gobbles it right up! April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by FAST SHIPPING! My dalmatian has to be on this food for maintenance from having Urinary stones. this is an amazing dog food! not only is it maintaining but he does not throw up or have any issues digesting like he used to have. And its so nice not to have to stop by the veterinary office all the time to pick up this food. I would recommend this to anyone that has a veterinarian say their dog needs it……. My dalmatian is healthier then he has ever been and he has been on this food for about 9 months. it is pricy but way less expensive then a surgery. January 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very needed product Ordering from was so easy and everyone was so helpful. Ordering from chewy wasn't just about the food. Of course my dog needs a certain food product for health reasons and the price was great at chewy(kudos!). When I looked at the website it became apparent to me that this company cares. My dogs are my everything - like so many other owners of fur babies - so I need to see know and feel like we are being taken care of and that the employees really do care about animals. We weren't just another sale or ticket. Thanks Chewy! July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome I'm a very satisfied and happy first time customer!!! Awesome product! Awesome prices! Awesome service! Very happy with!! July 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent food My dog has required two surgeries for bladder stones because he does not process purine well. He loves this food and eats every piece of it and often begs for more. It is easy for him to digest and he has had more frequent bowel movements with much less straining and discomfort than with his previous prescription food. He hasn't been on it long enough to know if it helping prevent stone formation, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. December 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly impressed The customer service department is simply outstanding!! They were helpful, kind, and caring during a very stressful time. We are scrambling to get this product quickly and they went above and beyond to see that we successfully received this food ASAP. Our dalmatian loves this food and the autoship feature is fantastic. Thank you You are the best! May 31, 2013
