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

  • Royal Canin Urinary SO Index® promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals
  • Moderate calorie content supports healthy weight

  • Thanks for delivery

    By on

    One of our male cats developed urinary problems and the Vet recommended Royal Canin Urinary SO food. We got Moderate Calorie because the cats like it too much! We appreciate Chewy.com taking the hassle out of getting the food. Having it delivered on a regular schedule eliminates the 1/2 drive to the Vets when we need food. And, the price is better than at the Vet's. Chewy.com contacted the Vet to get the needed prescription, and the first delivery was here within days.

  • My Cat Loves This Food!

    By on

    My cat was recently put on a strict urinary diet and he was not very happy with the product the vet sold to us. He tolerated the dry but refused the wet food. He was raised on Royal Canin and I feel their pet food is exceptional so I did a little research and discovered that they make a Urinary cat food. I order both the dry and wet feline food from Chewy and he LOVES both. He is happy and I am so relieved. Ordering was quick and easy - and I saved lots of money! Love Chewy.com!

  • quick shipment and communication with our vet

    By on

    When I ordered this, I had uploaded an outdated prescription we had initially gotten from an emergency vet (which is why our cat had gotten on this food). A Chewy rep got back to me within an hour to let me know. I wrote back and explained my wife would be taking our cat to the vet soon and would get a new prescription at that time. I provided them with our vet name/#. The next day I received an email saying the food was shipped! They had apparently contacted the vet and found out we had a current prescription with them.

  • Highly Recommend

    By on

    This product was recommended to me for my cat who suffers from frequent UTIs by my vet. Keeping him on a very strict diet has been succesful in bringing him from almost monthly UTIs to now 3 months infection free!! I will definetly continue to order from Chewy. The Customer Service and response time are excellent. Their prices are superior. I had this product in 48hrs. I have ordered other items as well and the quality is great!

  • Great stuff!

    By on

    My cat was bleeding when she urinated and had a lot of stones in her bladder according to the vet's x-ray, so they recommended this food. A. My cat loved the food and B. we went back to the vet in 4 weeks and the stones were completely gone! The vet was amazed. (FYI, we also gave her an antibiotics injection.) But the food deserves a lot of credit so we're staying on it.

  • Worth the price!

    By on

    If you have a cat with any urinary tract issues, Royal Canin SO is the only food they should be eating. My female cat needed surgery for crystals in the bladder when she was quite young ~ very rare. This food has kept her healthy and crystal free for five years since. AND every morsel (wet and dry) is eaten. I never throw out uneaten food. Very much worth the extra price!

  • Great product!

    By on

    I never thought my cat would be able to make the transition from friskies to royal canin. He really loves the royal canin. Definitely recommend it! So far he has not had any UTI problems. The service at chewy is the best. I definitely plan on ordering more of the cat food through chewy.com. Customer service is fast and very efficient. Thank you!

  • Great food

    By on

    I was concerned when our vet said our cat had to go on this food as he had urinary issues. It seemed expensive but the price on CHEWY.com was quite reasonable in comparison to the vet's office price. Also was worried whether cat would eat it as he is a very finicky eater. In short, he loves it and will no longer eat his previous food.

  • My Cat could not wait for this to arrive

    By on

    Normally I would get this directly from my vet, but they did not re-order for me the last time I picked it up from them. It would be over a week before they got any in. Tried buying some other brand with urinary track benefits. My cat would not touch the other food. I had seen the ads on TV and decided to give Chewy a try. It came in 3 business days. My cat literally was jumping for joy as I walked in the door with the bag in hand. I have now set up auto delivery with Chewy.

  • Amazing Fast Delivery

    By on

    Placed an order recently for a bag of the special RX diet for my cat prescribed by my vet. Up until now I had just ordered through the vet and picked it up there. I placed my order with Chewy.com, they confirmed the RX with my vet and I had the delivery in under 48 hours. I was amazed and very pleased. So very easy!!
