If your cat suffers from lower urinary tract disease you can help by feeding it a diet which provides optimal nutritional support for its urinary system. Urinary tract disease can lead to urinary stones (including struvite and calcium oxalate). Royal Canin Urinary S/O products were developed as an adjunctive treatment for cystitis and urinary stones. Indications: Dissolution of struvite uroliths Prophylactic treatment/prevention of calcium oxalate stones Prophylactic treatment/ prevention of struvite stones Contraindications: Pregnancy, lactation, kittens Chronic renal failure, metabolic acidosis Heart failure Hypertension Parallel use of urine acidifying medication Key benefits: Struvite dissolution: URINARY S/O helps to dissolve all types of struvite stones. Urine dilution: Diluting the urine makes it less liable to form struvite and calcium oxalate stones. Low RSS: Helps to lower the concentration of ions contributing to crystal formation. Protecting bladder mucosa: Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) is a natural part of the bladder mucosa and protects against bacteria and toxins. Changing your pet’s diet and length of treatment: Your pet will need to stay on this diet for 5 to 12 weeks, or until the stones are dissolved. It is advisable to feed this diet for a further 6 months to prevent a recurrence. Further information: Please ensure that during its illness your pet is fed only with URINARY S/O, otherwise the effectiveness of this product may be reduced. Therapeutic veterinary diets are carefully formulated and recommended to be used in conjunction with veterinary advice and support. Royal Canin strongly recommend you seek advice from your Vet prior to and during feeding of any of these products to your pet.
