Royal Canin Veterinary - Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie has been especially developed for dogs that have a tendency to put on weight or who are already overweight. Its adapted energy content can help your dog to maintain a healthy weight.
Urinary tract infections are unfortunately common in dogs, and they can cause urinary stones, such as struvite and calcium oxalate stones, to form. This dietetic food has been carefully designed to help dissolve urinary stones and prevent their re-occurrence and it can also support the treatment of bacterial bladder infections.
This dry dog food helps to prevent bladder stones in two ways. Firstly, increasing the volume of urine makes it more dilute, while the food also helps to lower the RSS (relative supersaturation) value of the urine. This in turn reduces the level of ions linked to the production of urine crystals.
Recommended for (indications):
Not recommended for (contraindications):

- Dissolving struvite stones: The recipe has been designed to help to effectively dissolve struvite stones.
- Moderate Energy: Adapted energy content to help dogs to maintain a healthy weight – especially for dogs that are already overweight or in danger of excess weight gain.
- Diluting urine: Increased urine volume to prevent formation of struvite and calcium oxalate stones.
- Low RSS value: Helps to reduce the level of ions that form struvite and oxalate crystals in the urine.
You should make sure to feed Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie exclusively whilst your dog is affected by urinary illness, to ensure the best efficacy. Duration of treatment:
5 to 12 weeks or until the urinary crystals have dissolved. In cases of bladder infection you should continue using this food for at least 1 month after first diagnosis. To avoid danger of re-infection, you should feed your dog a food with the S/O index even after recovery.
