Royal Canin Urinary Wet is for the nutritional support of cats in cases of:
Feline idiopathic cystitis
Dissolution of struvite uroliths
Reduction of recurrent struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis using a single diet
Not recommended in cases of:
Pregnancy, lactation, growth
Chronic renal failure, metabolic acidosis
Use of urine-acidifying drugs
Thanks to its high moisture content Urinary S/O Feline wet increases urine dilution. Almost 64% of cases of FLUTD* are idiopathic cystitis and the wet diet should be preffered in cases of recurrent cystitis.
Undersaturated urine is an environment where crystals cannot proliferate and so is unfavourable to the development of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) are naturally present on the healthy bladder mucosa but decrease in idiopathic cystitis. This causes increased permeability of the bladder to bacteria, toxins and ions, resulting in bladder inflamation and stimulation of pain sensitive receptors.
