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 dogs, bacterial infections of the urinary tract and the presence of stones (uroliths) in the urinary tract are the most common causes. This diet promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Key Benefits

  • Canine Urinary SO Moderate Calorie is a complete and balanced diet for adult dogs predisposed to weight gain. It is formulated to aid in the nutritional management of calcium oxalate and struvite urolithiasis.
  • Moderate calorie content, compared to canine Urinary SO, to help maintain ideal weight.
  • 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.

Feeding Instructions

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Royal Canin diets preserved?

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.

Where do the ingredients in Royal Canin diets come from?

We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.

Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain by-products?

Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain grains?

Grains can be a healthy part of any cat or dog’s diet. As always, we focus on the nutrients each ingredient provides and grains can provide many important nutrients.

How do you ensure Royal Canin diets are safe for my pet?

Our Quality and Food Safety systems are state-of-the-art and we continue to invest heavily in new technology to make sure they remain that way.

  • We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase.
  • We monitor every load delivered to our plants to verify the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make pet food.
  • We perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to our customers.
  • We manufacture every pet food we sell, in plants that we own; our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 22000 certified for Food Safety.

How do I know which Royal Canin diet is right for my pet?

Based on size, age, lifestyle, and breed, each cat or dog has unique nutritional needs. For healthy pets, use our Product Selector to find the right diet for your cat or dog.

If your pet is experiencing health issues, please refer to your veterinarian for more information. Your veterinarian will consider multiple factors when recommending an appropriate diet.

  • My Dr put me on this and I love it

    By on

    I'm a 12 year old Schnauzer mix that grew up in an orphanage. After 11 years of pampered living with my adoptive parents I wasn't feeling well and the chick that takes care of me took me to the doctor. They cut me open, made me wear a spaceship on my head and then started feeding me this food. I love this food. The guy who sleeps in the bed with me even stopped fat shaming me since changing to the moderate calorie variety. The chick has told me that I will continue to be fed this food, Dr's orders.

  • RX Foods to Reduce Urinary Stones

    By on

    Had difficulty obtaining at the local chain store, the stock was often low. I would drive to the chain store, lug these bags onto the cart, have to show the RX, if I forgot to bring it I was told no sale. Got online and found Chewy, site easy to use, lots of products, easily found what I needed, the food was available, delivered free, and sent a pic of the RX using my phone to prove the need for this product. So easy, no hassle, and signed up for automatic delivery saving me time and money. Product arrived when promised, and at my door. Thank you for the hassle free shopping

    Zoey was on Urinary SO from our Vet but he stopped caring it. So I went to Chewy.com and found it for less money and get it delivered to my door. How is that for convenience and savings ? I will add chews and other things on the next order. Very pleased with Chewy.com for their fast service and inventory. Wade Christian

  • She likes it

    By on

    I have a pit bull, she's a bit heavy and she enjoys this urinary food. Hopefully it will help her slim down with her added exercise. She loves this food too which is good because she's a picky girl. I use this mixed with the SO moderate can food and the SO treats.

  • So far so good

    By on

    After my Papillon had a bladder stone the vet recommended this food. They seem to love the taste, no tummy upset. Just an increase in urination. The vet warned of possible weight gain so I searched for a lower calorie version. Found it here on Chewy at a better price.

  • Good product

    By on

    My Lhasa has had problems with bladder stones and gaining weight. Our vet recommended this to us. It is still early days, but she loves it and so far has no problems. The food arrived in 2 days after they received the Rx from our vet. It's rather expensive though.
