Pictures On Royal Canin Urinary So Cat Exotic Pet Animal Stock
If negative stars were allowed this food would get a Negative 10! My male cat has crystals in his urine so the associate vet recommended I try a small bag of the dry cat food to balance him out and help prevent him from having this issue. I wasn't sure how he was going to take it so I mixed it with his other food and only gave it to him over two meals. His sister, who never really enjoys her food but eats, kept trying to steal his Royal Canin. I thought it was cute because she's never that interested in food so I let her try some.
Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that ROYAL CANIN Veterinary Diet feline URINARY SO provides complete and balanced nutrition for the maintenance of adult cats.

I'm trying to find really compelling info that someone does not need to keep feeding their cat this dry food due to a history of urinary blockage from crystals. I've been searching for some of Dr. H's comments, but not having a lot of luck on here. If someone could point me to a thread, I'd be grateful.
I have already found the journal articles posted a while back by Carol A, from Holly. I also have the Hill's article showing the wet food performed better, and the info on
Any other links/articles that would help the case? This woman is really spooked by the recalls, and expressed interest in feeding a homemade raw diet, but "I don't have much alternative though 'cause my guy has to eat the prescription diet!"

Message: Mel, Dr. H has a chapter in her book addressing this.
Urinary SO is the food that was prescribed for Rex about a year before his diabetes diagnosis... 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.Royal canin veterinary t urinary so moderate calorie morsels in gravy canned dog food save royal canin veterinary t urinary so moderate calorie canned cat food royal canin veterinary t feline urinary so canned cat foodWe 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.
