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 cats, bacterial infections are far less common. Urinary crystals and stones are often linked to this disease. The most common cause of Lower Urinary Tract Disease in cats is idiopathic cystitis. This diet promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Key Benefits

  • Feline Urinary SO Moderate Calorie is a highly digestible, palatable, complete and balanced adult cat food recommended for cats at risk of developing lower urinary tract disease and who are predisposed to weight gain
  • Royal Canin Urinary SO Index® promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals
  • Moderate calorie content supports healthy weight
  • Relative super saturation (RSS) methodology predicts the crystallization potential of urine. RSS is used to develop diets for cats prone to both struvite and oxalate urolithiasis.
  • Provides nutrition that aids in the management of pure struvite uroliths

  • He is a happy, healthy boy now!

    By on

    I almost lost Duncan to a serious urinary problem. Our vet recommended Royal CaninSO Moderate Calorie for him. He wasn't overweight but Lily, our "little" girl tends to be a bit "fluffy". She also prefers to steal Duncan's food, so we went with the moderate calorie formula. Both are happy and doing well. They like the food and Duncan hasn't demonstrated any symptoms since he began the Royal Canin.

  • TWO paws up

    Cat was put on urinary diet. We had tried Hills Science Diet (he hated it) and Purina ProPlan (meh) so I decided to order Royal Canin (both dry and wet RX formulas). WOW - he loves it; almost too much. Happy it is moderate calorie along with RX urinary formula but going to remove the kibble dish at night because he loves this so much. My other (no urinary issues) cat loves the Science Diet as well - so definitely will need to monitor feeding time. Chewy.com quickly got my RX and shipment in just 2 days.

  • Thanks for delivery

    By on

    One of our male cats developed urinary problems and the Vet recommended Royal Canin Urinary SO food. We got Moderate Calorie because the cats like it too much! We appreciate Chewy.com taking the hassle out of getting the food. Having it delivered on a regular schedule eliminates the 1/2 drive to the Vets when we need food. And, the price is better than at the Vet's. Chewy.com contacted the Vet to get the needed prescription, and the first delivery was here within days.

    Top of the line customer service, fast shipping and processing prescriptions. I mistyped my address. So I emailed customer service and got it fixed in less than an hour. Also if you need prescription food they will email you so you can just send a picture of the prescription label and they will approve, much quicker, got my order the next day.

  • Good cat food

    By on

    We are having a difficult time of getting our cat's weight down. She weighs 18 pounds, then went up to 19, now she is back to 18.2. We are hoping she will lose weight on this new food, recommended by our vet. We love Lily so very much, and want her to live a long healthy life, so hopefully we can get her weight down to 15 pounds.

  • Great product!

    By on

    I never thought my cat would be able to make the transition from friskies to royal canin. He really loves the royal canin. Definitely recommend it! So far he has not had any UTI problems. The service at chewy is the best. I definitely plan on ordering more of the cat food through chewy.com. Customer service is fast and very efficient. Thank you!

  • Great food

    By on

    I was concerned when our vet said our cat had to go on this food as he had urinary issues. It seemed expensive but the price on CHEWY.com was quite reasonable in comparison to the vet's office price. Also was worried whether cat would eat it as he is a very finicky eater. In short, he loves it and will no longer eat his previous food.

  • Great stuff!

    By on

    My cat was bleeding when she urinated and had a lot of stones in her bladder according to the vet's x-ray, so they recommended this food. A. My cat loved the food and B. we went back to the vet in 4 weeks and the stones were completely gone! The vet was amazed. (FYI, we also gave her an antibiotics injection.) But the food deserves a lot of credit so we're staying on it.

  • Highly Recommend

    By on

    This product was recommended to me for my cat who suffers from frequent UTIs by my vet. Keeping him on a very strict diet has been succesful in bringing him from almost monthly UTIs to now 3 months infection free!! I will definetly continue to order from Chewy. The Customer Service and response time are excellent. Their prices are superior. I had this product in 48hrs. I have ordered other items as well and the quality is great!

  • Great food for cats with Urinary Issues

    By on

    My cat had emergency surgery and was then placed on this food. There is no guarantee with the type of stones his body produces that this diet will eliminate future stones, but hopefully will help reduce his risk. He likes the food and has no problem switching to the new diet.
