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.

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Urinary SO Moderate Calorie Dry Cat Food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 324.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from been buying this for many years My male cat who was 4yrs at the time had crystals ONCE and that was one too many times. he was in such pain, couldnt pee, blood coming out and it happened on a Friday night when our vet office wasn't open so I had to take him to the VET ER. $1200 dollars later for a Friday-Sunday weekend admit on IVs and meds!! my Giovanni was brought to our vet on the Monday after the weekend and he put Gio on this urinary food for life. I go back and forth from canned and dry and he has never had any more problems with crystal. I know that there is a lot of comments on other sites that say no dry food at all and regular canned food works also but when Gio never had anymore crystals since on this food that I tend to take those comments lightly. (Giovanni is now almost 11 years!) This is the first order that I purchased the moderate calorie and he seems to like this more, not sure if its because it really does taste better or he just wanted a change. when there is a $1200 weekend vet bill I say paying more for special food is so worth not having to go through that again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product saved my cat's life!! I have never had a problem with either one of my cats until the end of this December. My little Sammy is 6 years old and developed stones/crystals in his bladder to the point where he was just urinating blood. My vet recommended Royal Canin to me and after reading wonderful reviews about it, I had to get it. Today was Sammy's 2 week follow up and there is no blood and no signs of stones/crystals in his urine. Knowing that this food has worked wonders and surgery is not an option, I feel every cat owner should know about it. Although it is a little pricey I have no problem keeping both of my cats on this food for the rest of their lives. I would not have been able to afford surgery and I am just so grateful for this company and the products they produce!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Happy to finally have a healthy bladder/crystal preventative diet with lower calories! I was really happy when I found out that Royal Canin made a Moderate (Calorie Control) diet version of their Urinary SO diet. My Vet's office and some other popular websites don't carry this food or Royal Canin at all and I had a coupon for this site so I took a look. It said I could receive the food in 1-2 days but it took about a week to get it. Since my Vet's office doesn't carry the diet I had to feed other foods and of course the only one they would eat in the meantime was a regular over the counter food. They used to love the regular Urinary SO but they are not as excited to eat this Moderate Calorie food although I know this is not this website's fault. The other problem I had was that you can reseal the top of the bag which is nice because it keeps the 17.6 lb. bag fresher longer. After just a few days, the closure seal at the top broke and unfortunately my cats are very picky and like fresh scoops of food so when it broke I was'nt very happy. I am going to keep feeding my two boys this food since they need to be on a diet that prevents crystals and they are also chunky boys and they need to lose weight so they will just have to learn to love the new variation on the taste of the food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product will keep my cat healthy. This product is designed to keep male cats from forming crystals and stones in their urinary tract. The cats didn't like it at first but now have accepted it and are doing fine. The vet saved my cat and this food will keep him healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good food My cat loves this food and when I just bought him the moderate calorie, because he had gained weight in the last 2 years of being on the regular SO, he went nuts as soon as I opened the bag!! Hopefully I won't have to restrict his food as much now. As far as what it's supposed to do, I hope it's working. Haven't had any more kidney stones that I know of, just one bad UTI this past Christmas. Great price on here too since the moderate calorie is a few bucks more than the regular food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my cat from pain My cat started urinating blood and I immediately took her to the vet. She was on a higher end food already, but still showed crystals in her urine. Her vet prescribed this. It was an easy switch and my extremely picky cat loves it. No more problems and we are happy!
