My male cat has been fed Royal Canin Urinary S/O for somewhere over ten years, to combat urinary crystals, on our vet's recommendation. As far as we had been made aware, he must eat this and nothing else for the rest of his life or risk serious complications. And because we trust our vet we believed that, and that it must be a good food for him if it is a prescription food. He has tolerated it with no problems for a long time, and has certainly had no more crystal formations since eating this.
My female miniature poodle had bladder stones removed surgically and was put on a diet of Hill's multipurpose C/D. I started feeding it to my Yorkie and he was eating it but the kernels were large and I thought I would try the Royal Canin. They did not have the small dog so I fed him the large regular SO. He started vomiting and getting loose stool. I took it back to the vet and they ordered the small bite. While I was waving for the small bite to come in I switched to Hill's again with no problem. I picked up the small bite when it came in and the Yorkie got loose stool then diarrhea and vomiting. Last night I took him to emergency because of black stool. He was diagnosed with blood in his urinary tract. There was no signs of parasites and they did blood work which looked normal. The vet put him on special medication for a week. I suspect that the food has caused the problem and after spending $240 I am taking the food back to the vet.We had one cat who had a urinary blockage and the vet suggested we start feeding him Royal Canin S/O wet and dry. We were told that it would be fine for both cats. The first case of wet food was fine but the second had a different consistency, almost as if they changed their processing. After being on the food for just over a month, our second cat became extremely ill, constipated and throwing up. We took him back to the vet and both attending vets inquired to any recent changes in diet, acknowledging that such a change could be the cause of his potentially deadly issue. He was so backed up that sedation was required to help clear him out. Needless to say the poor thing has never really recovered. Due to blood in urine, I have been feeding my cats Royal Canin Urinary S/O for about 5 or 6 years. They each get 1/3 cup of dry in the morning and evening, and 1/4 can wet in the afternoon. All was well until about March 2017 when one cat was vomiting regularly. Vet did Xrays, bloodwork, etc. and no issues determined. Switched to a Royal Canin "bland" food which the wet worked fine but too much of the dry gave her diarrhea. Slowly mixed bland and S/O to get her back on track and it was fine. Then switched to all S/O and in 1 day she was vomiting again. Other cat seems to have no issues. I'm guessing Royal Canin had a formula change and it is detrimental to some animals. Used to be good, now cat vomits regularly.My cat recently was found to have crystals in his bladder. I paid over $1,000 to have a vet insert a catheter and watch him for a couple days (levels associated with his kidneys were high so they kept him for a couple days), take blood tests etc. When picking him up, the vet recommended he be on Royal Canin SO Urinary food. I bought cans of it since that was also recommended. I just started him on it yesterday and last night he threw up and had diarrhea. I am concerned since from now reading reviews, it looks like the symptoms are the same across the board. As of today, it looks like he might be blocked again. I am wondering what action I can take. I am planning to talk with the vet. If my cat needs additional treatment, are there lawsuits I could pursue?
