This highly palatable complete diet is specially designed to ensure the production of a large volume of moderately acidic urine with low struvite and calcium oxalate Relative Supersaturation (RSS) levels. Royal Canin urinary diet will dissolve and prevent occurrence of struvite and prevent spontaneous homogeneous crystallisation of oxalate.
Urinary S/O Canine effectively dissolves Struvite uroliths. An acidic urinary pH is unfavourable to the development of bacteria, which are frequently associated with Struvite uroliths.
Diluting urine decreases the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. The larger urinary volume also ensures regular bladder wash-out.
Under saturated urine is an environment where crystals cannot proliferate. Thus the urine is unfavourable to the development of both Struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
Magnesium is a component of Struvite (magnesium ammonium phosphate) uroliths.
The synergistic antioxidant complex (vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine, lutein) neutralises free radicals and help maintain the health of cells, DNA and the immune system.
