Royal Canin Urinary S/O is a complete food for adult cats. It has been specifically developed for cats with struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis and to help to dissolve struvite uroliths. It is also suitable for cats with lower urinary tract diseases. The food acidifies the urine which will dissolve struvite stones and will help to prevent them from reoccurring. It also has a low level of magnesium which is a component of struvite crystals. This will help to prevent their formation.
The food will also dilute the urine which will ensure regular flushing of the bladder and will decrease the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. It also contains low RSS to create undersaturated urine which is an unfavourable environment for struvite and calcium oxalate crystal formation. Your cat's bladder health will be helped with glycosaminoglycans which are essential to preventing bacteria or toxins from causing inflammation or stimulation of pain receptors. In idiopathic cystitis the Glycosaminoglycans are decreased.
