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 is a complete and balanced diet for adult dogs formulated to aid in the nutritional management of calcium oxalate and struvite urolithiasis.
  • Reduced magnesium level supports urinary health
  • Royal Canin Urinary SO Index® promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate 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
  • Increasing the urine volume simultaneously reduces the saturation of urine with calcium oxalate and struvite crystals

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.

  • Food change for my miniature schnauzer

    By on

    Recently, my 9-year-old mini schnauzer had to have bladder stone surgery to remove bladder stones. Always before, we have had trouble changing Shadow's diet. This time, there have been absolutely no issues, and he loves this food. He used to turn up his nose at his old dog food and would only eat it when he was very hungry. His old dog food was prescribed for the excessive tartar on his teeth. His new food is supposed to be great at preventing more bladder stones from forming. The only downside is that I now have to brush Shadow's teeth every day, but he is very patient and enjoys the doggie toothpaste!

  • My Saint Bernard has been eating this for 5 years

    By on

    Hans had two different surgeries for bladder stones in a short span of time so his vet recommended Urinary SO for the rest of his life. We had some problems with our last supplier, so we decided to try out Chewy.com. (Especially since they now have a Saint in one of their commercials!) I ordered late on Friday and didn't expect to get the food until Tuesday. To my surprise, it came first thing the next morning...a Saturday! We really needed the food because we had just run out and the other company had really messed up our order, so this was wonderful for Hans! He has really done well on this food.

  • Bladder Stones

    By on

    Bailey, my 4yr old J.R. mix, had a bladder infection; after 2wks of antibiotics/pain meds the infection was gone, but an X-ray revealed 4 stones. I immediately scheduled her for surgery and afterward my vet recommended Royal Canin SO or the other brand to alleviate the recurrence of bladder stones and infections. I didn't like the ingredients in the other brand, so I chose Royal Canin. Bailey wasn't too sure about it at first, only eating half of her daily feeding. The food is designed to create more urine; therefore lowering the Ph and washing the bladder, which lowers her risk for stones and infection. I put a level tablespoon of cooked, plain, organic ground turkey in Bai's bowl and she Bailey, my 4yr old J.R. mix, had a bladder infection; after 2wks of antibiotics/pain meds the infection was gone, but an X-ray revealed 4 stones.

  • Best Price

    By on

    My dog needs to be on this medicated food. We'd been getting it from our local Petsmart for ages and decided to look to see if it was available online for cheaper. I was so happy to find out Chewy carried it and was cheaper. Getting it delivered to the house also meant I wasn't lugging a giant bag of dog food to my car and into my home.

  • Proactive Way to Care For My Dog

    By on

    My dog was prescribed this diet after she had a yearly check-up and the vet saw crystals forming in her urine. I didn't want to have to put her through a surgery if I didn't have to, and after dealing with bladderstones in other dogs, I know they can be painful and messy for a dog to have to deal with. My dog has been on this food for 5 years now and every year she gets a great check-up. No crystals, no worries with bladderstones. It isn't a cheap food, but for the peace of mind I get, I don't mind paying the price for it. My dog loves it and I have never had any problems with her eating it up!. I got a great price on it on Chewy.com!

  • Great delivery

    By on

    This is the first time trying this food, not the brand. We are seeing if this will help in preventing UTI's for my Boxer. She loves the food, so we will see how it goes. Delivery is great from this website. Once I figure out how long this bag will last I will probably to to auto delivery.

  • excellent product

    By on

    Our pug had crystals in his urine, but Royal Canin Urinary SO dog food evidently has kept him from having actual stones. He loves the food, and he's been on it for several years now, with no more urinary problems. Also, Chewy.com has the best price I could find, with free shipping (great for the big bags!).

  • Our dog is liking her new prescription food

    By on

    This food is only available by prescription and our dog is now on it because she had emergency surgery for numerous bladder stones, one of which blocked her bladder. She now has to be on this prescription food. I can say we had no problem switching her to it, she seems to like it. We were told once she started on this she could have no other snacks or table food as it could negate the effects of this food's ability to balance certain conditions in the bladder that cause stones. We thought she wouldn't like or but she eats it for meals and as a treat.

  • Molly's food

    By on

    Molly's body produces bladder stones, which resulted once in surgery to remove them and another time on a special diet to dissolve them. Since giving her only urinary SO dry dog food....no snacks, no people food, nothing else.... she has been stone-free for more than three years.

  • Happy dog!

    By on

    My dog had developed struvite crystals in his urine, which had caused some small stones to be formed at the head of his bladder and he would urinate blood. The vet recommended he go on a urinary care dog food. Royal Canin was one of two types I had found and it was the less expensive of the two, but still seemed to have quality ingredients. My dog has been super happy with the food and he is healthy again and has had no urinary issues since the switch.
