Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve4114 Excellent, but pricey
This is an excellent product for protecting against crystals in the urine. My cat (8 years old) had this problem and nearly died from it. I started using Royal Canin Urinary SO after this episode (based on the recommendation of our Vet) and my cat seems to be doing well. It is 6 months after and he is doing fine. Of course, he has a check-up next week, so we'll see how he's really doing.
Unfortunately, this prescription food is much more expensive than regular cat food. If you have a male cat, you might want to try giving him canned food mixed with a little extra water (to make sure he gets a good amount of water in his diet). But, if he has urinary issues, just go to this Royal Canin canned food (which should be better than the dry, which we also give him - since there's a higher moisture content).
Our cat also seems to like the food.
This is a good product.
I also give this to our 3 year old female cat, in addition to regular canned and dry food, and she enjoys it and seems to also be doing well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katethurn No Recurrence & Great Price
My male cat has had 2 bladder stones thus far in his life. After the second one, we knew that something had to be done. The cost of surgery and the stress it involved for myself and my cat was simply not worth it anymore. Plus, since my cat simply does not want to drink water, we had to do wet food. Our vet originally recommended Science Hills but when we moved, our new vet only carried Royal Canin. Maybe it was a selling tactic, but our new vet also said some studies have shown Royal Canin has an even better prevention rate. So we went ahead and tried it. Of course the wet food versus dry has made a huge difference in his health overall and there has been no recurring bladder stones! While a case can be expensive, Chewy has it for even cheaper, on autoship, with quick shipping, and a discount. Also, our vet was completely fine with writing a prescription for it. Now there are no regrets about providing this for the long and healthy life of my cat. It really does work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MujerDee Less expensive option for an expensive feed
My cats have required canned Canin SO for a year since they getting a diagnosis from their vet. Chewy is a convenient, less expensive option than running down to the vet's a couple of times a month, waiting in line and finding someone to help me load and haul they heavy cases of food. So glad my sister recommended this service. I can adjust the shipping to suit how many cans we have left in the cupboard, and shipping to the door is heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy Exactly what I wanted
My local pet store only carries the smaller cans, so I was glad to see the larger cans of the Canin SO Urinary cat food that my vet recommends available on line. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vict Helps prevent urinary tract infections!
After two separate infections, VERY expensive to treat, the vet recommended special food. My cat loves it, and one full year has passed infection free!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AmericanBadger Definitely worth the Money!!
We have 2 four year old male cats with urinary issues. Pocco has stones/crystals, resulting in a $1,200 surgery bill. Cosmso has mucous plugs, resulting in a $1,600 emergency hospital 6 day stay. They were treated for obstructions, dehydration, fever, and infections.
We feed 1/4 can wet & 1/2 cup dry SO food twice daily. First, the cats love it! Second, they have remained healthy & happy since starting this food..
