Your veterinarian may recommend a Royal Canin Urinary cat food formula for your cat. These special formulations can:
This helps your cat urinate more often, which can help minimize time for stones to form.
RSS methodology predicts urine crystallization and is used to develop diets that reduce the risk of stone formation.
A precise mineral balance can also help prevent stones from forming.
Last-minute dietary changes can sometimes upset your pet's stomach. Set your Royal Canin pet food order to Autoship to keep feeding on track and avoid unwanted disruptions.
What sets Royal Canin apart is their close collaboration with veterinarians.

One of our cats was blocked and after a few days with the vet, came home with a new diet plan. Purchasing this prescribed food seemed a bit daunting ($$$) but he doesn’t eat a ton of it. I think because it is a higher quality food than what we were giving before that he doesn’t need as much. Purchasing online was easy (chewy reached out the the vet for script). I like the delivery vs carting a giant bag from store to car, car to house. Last thing, I like the “ziplock” at the top of the bag to help keep it as fresh as possible & I didn’t need to buy a secondary container.
We adopted Mr. Moo when he was 10 y.o. he always had crystals in his urine, so vet prescribed Urinary SO. He loved it! We had him on half wet food and half dry (through an auto feeder) because he loved the dry food so much, but we didnt want to onky feed him dry food. He would run from across the house whenever his auto feeder started rumbling. We had Moo for 7 years. Unfortunately after this last order, we lost 17 y.o. Moobear to large stones in his urinary tract, but the vet said this food was why he was so healthy for 7 years after we adopted him, and why he did well for so long, despite already showing signs of urinary issues at age 10. We're grateful for 7 great years with our handsome boy. And Chewy's customer service has been outstanding.
As a former vet tech, I was only familiar with Hills urinary diet. My cat had PU surgery after they couldnt unblock him and we were suggested to use Royal. Royal is intended for long-term diets and mostly works by increasing salt intake to promote drinking. While not completely ideal (as our cat has a heart murmur), we decided to use his regular wet and change his dry to this. He hated the Royal wet, but seems to really enjoy the dry! He’s drinking more than he used to which is helping him urinate 2-3 times a day rather than 1-2 (his previous normal). I wish these diets came in other protein variants, but we’re very happy so far
My cat was prescribed this food by our vet, after having multiple bouts of painful and bloody urination. She is also on the canned version. She loves both types of food! Since starting this diet she has only had one instance of blood in her urine in the past several years, whereas before it was very frequent. This food is a bit expensive, but not nearly as expensive as it was to take her to the vet every few weeks! It's worth every penny as it has improved her health tremendously.
my cat loves it and it has helped him a lot and eating dry food gets him drinking more water which is good so happy with this product been using it for going on 2 years now
One of my cats eats this with no problem. The other will eat it as a last resort but throws it up before it is digested. Not sure what the problem is. He will barely eat the canned version and seems to keep it down.
My vet recommended this food for our cat that has urinary crystals. Within a week, our cat was feeling better and no crying after using the litter box. She needs the moderate calorie food as well because she tends to gain weight very easily. The taste is apparently very good also, since my other kitty tries to sneak in and gobble it up. So happy that it is now back in stock at Chewy. We tried another brand of prescription diet food when this was out of stock, and it did not work as well as the Royal Canin. Thank you Chewy!!
Royal Canin’s food has saved Simon’s life! He developed bladder crystals that almost took his life but because of the Veterinary diet Urinary SO food he is living his best life. My only complaint is that I can’t get the SO treats anymore.
I appreciate the speediness Chewy & my vet processed this ordered. And, it was so easy. And, my cat still likes this food.
Urinary SO recent shipment is "flaking" leaving dust at the bottom of the bowls. I have purchased the Royal Canin Urinary SO multiple times and this is the first time there has been an issue.
