Comprehensive Overview of Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Urinary So Dry Dog Food

What Is Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Urinary So Dry Dog Food?

Royal Canin is a well-known brand of high-quality dog food. Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Urinary So Dry Dog Food is a specialized dry dog food targeted towards dogs who have issues with their urinary health and those who have problems with stone and crystal formation.

Its formulation is suited for those dogs who have excessive mineral buildup in their urinary systems and who have to undergo treatment to address these concerns. While most dog foods are available to buy off the shelf, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Urinary So Dry Dog Food needs a prescription to purchase.

What Medical Conditions Does Royal Canin Urinary So Dog Food Treat?

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Urinary SO Dog Food does not treat any medical conditions on its own. However, this food does play a part in the treatment and prevention of certain medical conditions. One of the main issues this diet is used for is treating and preventing bladder stones.

Struvite and calcium oxalate stones are a painful condition. Your dog can experience difficulty urinating, painful urination, and even bleeding from the genitals because of stones.

Another issue that the Royal Canin Urinary SO dog food diet overcomes is excess magnesium, which encourages stones and crystals in dog urine to form. Instead, this diet is formulated with low magnesium levels, which act like a preventative to discourage stone and crystal formation.

This diet also increases urine output. If your dog has excess minerals in your dog's urine, it might lead to stones and crystals forming. This dry dog food is designed to increase urine output and increase thirst so that these pesky minerals are washed away!

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet's digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
