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.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Food! I own two Dalmatians so anyone who knows the breed, know that they're prone to urate stones. Both my dogs had issues and one had emergency surgery. I work in a vet office so I had the availability to try all the low purine diets with purina, hills, etc. This brand is not only cheaper but both of my dogs have no issues and love the food. A couple others I tried smelt terrible and the kibble was white. I think the brown smell good kibble keeps my dogs happy and the ingredients keep me happy! December 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Life Saving product I do not know if my dog would be alive without this special dog food. He had 2 bladder surgeries for stones and blockage in 12 months before this product was recommended. One year on this dog food and the ultrasound of his bladder was clear. We are extremely pleased with this product. September 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quite Satisified Excellent selection of products...something for all. Great customer service and follow-through getting RX from vet office. Shipped product immediately after. Offered 20% savings for auto-ship...a clincher for me. Satisfied with product selection and price. I'm sold. August 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is very good for dogs with kidney problems Our English bulldog loves this food ! I am so glad since the vet said she needed it . She has bladder and kidney troubles and he said this is good for it . Our golden doodle puppy accidentally got in her taxi and gobbled it up ! He loved it also ! July 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by English Bulldog with Bladder stones My 3yo EB had to be out on this food after she had surgery to remove a large bladder stone. She's only been on it for about 3 weeks so far but seems to like the food. July 28, 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 This product is wonderful for dogs who get urinary stones Our dog eats this product very well after having urinary stones. Low purines and smells good. May 27, 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
