Royal Canin Veterinary Dog - Urinary U/C Low Purine is designed to help dogs older than 1 year suffering from urinary crystals. These may have a number of causes, and this food is specifically made for the treatment of an irreversible metabolic disorder in the excretion of uric acid. If this is affecting your dog, you will need to implement long-term changes, including a specialist diet.
This complete dry dog food contains proteins with a low purine content which may prevent the build-up of cysteine stones. It combats the loss of fluid through the skin by fortifying the skin barrier through its high biotine content, boasting niacin, pantothenic acid, zinc, and linoleic acid. It also includes a protective antioxidant complex that improves cellular defence against malevolent metabolites.
Recommended for (indications):
Not recommended for (contraindications):
- To work with leishmaniasis therapy with the use of xanthine oxidase inhibitors (e.g. allopurinol)
- Food to preserve good health in adult dogs of certain breeds predisposed to the formation of metabolic-related urinary stones (e.g. dalmatian)
- Prevention of relapse of metabolism-related urinary stones (urate, xanthine, cystine)
- Parallel treatment with drugs that increase urine acidity
- Lactating bitches, pregnant bitches or puppies
- Urate prevention: Selected proteins with low purine content (for example, wheat flour, egg) in conjunction with an alkaline urine pH can help reduce the risk of Uratharnsteinen.
- Cystine prevention: The composition of URINARY U/C helps prevent the formation of urinary stones.
- Skin barrier: Very high levels of biotin, niacin and pantothenic acid in combination with zinc and linoleic acid help to reduce fluid loss through the skin and strengthen the barrier effect.
- Antioxidant protection: A synergistic antioxidant combination (vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine, lutein) can protect cells from attacks from aggressive metabolic products.
Owners should feed Urinary U/C exclusively, to ensure maximum effectiveness. Duration of treatment:
Urate stones: min. 6 months. For permanent metabolic disorders, this food can be fed for the dog’s lifespan.
Cystine urinary stones: feed for up to one year. Ensure your dog receives regular therapy reviews to revise feeding guidelines.
