Royal Canin Urinary Moderate Calorie is for the nutritional management of adult cats who:
Have difficulty in maintaining their ideal body weight (neutering, overweight, low activity levels)
Feline idiopathic cystitis
Management of recurrent struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis
Urinary S/O Feline effectively dissolves struvite stones.
Diluting urine decreases the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. The larger urinary volume also ensures regular bladder wash-out.
The reduced calorie content of the diet makes it possible to limit weight gain in cats with a tendency to obesity.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) that are naturally found on the healthy bladder mucosa but decrease in diopathic cystitis. This causes increased permeability of the bladder to bacteria, toxins and ions, resulting in bladder inflammation and stimulation of pain-sensitive receptors.
