I adopted two kittens in June 2022, I noticed one was developing problems with urination at around 6 months of age. Edgar was urinating everywhere, and frequently. He didn't seem like he was in pain, but I noticed drops of blood in his urine. So Edgar went to the Veterinarian and had a clean urinalysis. So no UTI, but the Vet stated he has a metabolic disorder that causes him to be prone to bladder stones and a diet change was in order. We started him on the Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Adult Urinary SO kibble and Edgar loves it. In fact it is so yummy, that the other three cats try to steal a bite every chance they get! So Edgar now has a private dining area. He is now 18 months old and thriving. Bright beautiful green eyes, silky coat, healthy skin and growing in leaps and bounds. He is very active and is generally a happy and healthy guy now. This Cat Mom recommends Royal Canin food without hesitation.
My cat was diagnosed with FIC (feline idiopathic cystitis) early this year. It was so frustrating that multiple vets could not give us an answer to what was wrong. One of the vets suggested a special diet catered to cats with urinary problems. We tried one with no luck, then switched to this brand. She went from 2 outbreaks a month (consistently peeing blood, cringing in pain, peeing all over our apartment) to all of her symptoms completely halting in 2 weeks. This combined with a daily scoop of D Mannose has been what works for her. If your kitty is struggling with FIC, I’m sorry. I hope that this works for you like it did for my baby!
My boy Smaug has been suffering from bladder crystals for a little over a year now. He's been in and out of the vets office and has been cath'd multiple times. Poor guy has been through it! I had him on the science diet brand and he got so fat and he still had crystal problems. One of the vet techs told me about this brand so I figured I would give it a shot. Not only has he been crystal free for a few months now but he has lost weight! Yay! Yes, this stuff is so expensive but it is cheap compared to the vet bills! Never taking him off this stuff! Oh and I saw a question about whether this can be given to a cat that has not been diagnosed with crystals and the answer is Yes. I have another cat named Yoda and it was so tricky to try and feed them two different diets. I asked my vet and my vet said it is totally fine to give this to Yoda and definitely would not hurt. He has been on it and he is doing great! Loves it just as much as Smaug and has lost a little weight himself! Win win!!
My cat was diagnosed with crystals at 3 years old. I did research and immediately put him on Royal Canin Urinary SO. He is now 12 years old. He’s never had a crystal or blockage or discomfort (from what I can tell, and he would tell me) since being on this food. Yes, it’s super expensive, but you really do get what you pay for with this. My cat loves the taste and texture of his food. He’s basically obsessed with it. In 9 years of eating this food, he’s never grown tired of it. Maven-recommended.
I waited, curious to see if my finicky cat would accept this new food & much to my delight, he liked it! Being an indoor cat, he needed to watch his calories. This way he can have the bulk without porking up & still prevent the bladder crystals. A win, win for both of us.
My cat had been experiencing urinary issues or FIC (Feline Idiopathic Cystitis). She kept peeing in areas of our home that were not normal and did it in front of me too! My veterinarian finally said she needed to go on a special prescribed formula food and recommended Royal Canin Urinary SO. It has helped tremendously with urinary inflammations and her random peeing episodes. Highly recommend this formula food for cats experiencing the same issues and has a great flavor that most cats enjoy.
Red Man has been fed the Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Adult Urinary SO Moderate Calorie Dry Cat Food for most of his young 10 years. Red Man and Bailey Boy are brothers, and all my inside cats get Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Adult Urinary SO Moderate Calorie Dry Cat Food. My inside cats are Willie, Half Pint, Ido, Happy, and Springer. I have 22 outside cats in a heavenly Cat Sanctuary. They are all from the same feral colony.
First off, he likes it and crunches happily away. He’s lost a couple of needed pounds while eating both this and the canned food. Cons: Simon is a long-haired half Maine Coon cat. This food does not address spring shedding and he’s thrown up hairballs and gastric juice everywhere! It took an occasional commercial can of primavera cat food and a tray of cat grass before it stopped. The *very biggest* con to this(aside from price, that is) is Chewy’s supply issues. Only a 17pound bag of this to see right now? Really? A credit card # that’s not working? Really? I used and saved the new one at the first auto ship 6 weeks ago! An email(yes, there’s one attached to my account)would have been nice telling me my order had been cancelled. Nope. Now I’m scrambling to get my cat his p/d before I run out. CHEWY, YOU’VE LOST A GOOD CUSTOMER. I’ll get my cats p/d locally, thank you.
The price increase over the last 2 years on this product is ridiculous! My cats don’t mind the food but I’m tired of this price gauging. I will be incorporating another food to blend in.
