Description

Lower urinary tract disease (LUTD) refers to a group of disorders that commonly leads to irritation of the urinary tract and corresponding undesirable clinical signs. What causes Lower Urinary Tract Disease? In cats, bacterial infections are far less common. Urinary crystals and stones are often linked to this disease. The most common cause of Lower Urinary Tract Disease in cats is idiopathic cystitis. This diet promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Key Benefits

  • Feline Urinary SO is a complete and balanced diet for adult cats to aid in the nutritional management of calcium oxalate and struvite urolithiasis, recommended for cats at risk of developing lower urinary tract disease
  • Provides nutrition that aids in the management of pure struvite uroliths.
  • Royal Canin Urinary SO Index® promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals
  • Increasing the urine volume simultaneously reduces the saturation of urine with calcium oxalate and struvite crystals
  • Relative Super Saturation (RSS) methodology predicts the crystallization potential of urine; RSS is used to develop diets that lower the concentration of ions contributing to struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis

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 rx@chewy.com.

  • A life-saver!

    By on

    My little guy had to see the emergency vet for a urethral obstruction. They thought he'd be ok if he could get through 24h without re-obstructing. Well, he didn't. They continued closely monitoring him and he was able to come home on the third day. I was a nervous wreck over the next week... month, hoping it wouldn't happen again. We started feeding him Urinary SO dry and wet food immediately after seeing the vet. He's just had his annual checkup and there were NO crystals in his urine. Very thankful Royal Canin came up with such an effective formula!!

    After 2 of my cats with kidney stones and urinary issues had to have surgery at 900.00 a piece, I switched to this Royal Canin Urinary. I also use the canned which I get from my vet. I have multiple cats, so they are all now on this food. They absolutely love it. I'm hoping that it does indeed prevent any future urinary issues. The service was fantastic. My vet faxed the prescription, and I had my shipment the next day! Thank you!

    ...and so am I! After some serious bladder issues, one of our male cats was prescribed Hills metabolic diet, which neither he nor his brother would touch. A switch to the Royal Canin Urinary SO did the trick! They both love it, and I have peace of mind knowing that future urinary issues are being avoided. AND, the large bag is $10.00 less at Chewy than at my vet's office! You've got to love that!

    I have two cats that have bladder issues. One female has a bladder stone, and her urine would have blood in it. Since she has been eating this, no blood in her urine. All my cats like it. They really don't like the Science Diet. But this they will eat with no complaints.(it's also $10.00 cheaper here then at the Veterinarian's )

    I was very impressed with the fast delivery time for my cat's food. I haven't used it yet, as I still have one opened and about half full, but both cats have been on this product for a while, so I'm sure there won't be a problem. Thanks for such great service and great pricing!

  • Life Saver for My Cat!

    SO food is prescription food. Do not mix with other cat food if your vets says your pet needs special food. I learned the hard way, thinking I could skimp and mix food so as not to spend a lot of $. Well, this past January, my boy had to have an expensive operation. He could not pass his urine which was full of build up from his bladder. This SO food helps to make your pet thirsty so they drink more water. Which in return, keeps the bladder from forming crystals. Chewy.com has a super price! Should have done this long ago.

  • My cat loves it!

    Since my cat was diagnosed with crystals, he had to go on a special diet. I give him special wet food. Now I can also give him some dry food made for his condition. My cat always loved his "crunchy " food. Now that it's available for him as part of his special food to eat, he is walking on clouds! I just have to be careful of how much I give him since it's got more carbs. He looks forward to his "crunchy " food every evening.

  • My cat loves this food and I love Chewy!

    By on

    My cat was blocked. He did not eat his first prescribed food; he lost too much weight. He eats this food with enthusiasm! So far there have been none of the symptoms of urinary tract blockage that led to my needing to buy prescription foods. Chewy is great! They send food on time, with notice. Food arrives in great condition. The autoship program allows for changes in shipping dates. I couldn't be happier with this food or Chewy, and neither could my cat!

    After trying another brand which he would refuse to eat I ordered this and now he tries to knock it out of our hands and nudges our hand while we try to put it in his bowl. Good thing he likes it enough to eat it off the floor. Considering most cats need to be on a food like this forever it is important they love the food!
