Product details

Royal Canin Canine Urinary U/C UUC 18 Low Purine helps to reduce the formation of urate and cystine bladder stones.

How it works

Crystals can form in your dog's urine while it's in the bladder. These crystals are known as metabolic uroliths and can damage your dog's urinary tract, or block it and stop urine from passing. They're usually named after whichever mineral they're made from: around 8% are urate stones, and 1% cent are cystine stones. 

This recipe is designed to prevent the formation and recurrence of cystine and urate stones in dogs. It uses proteins with a low purine content, which helps to stop urate stones from forming, while the limited protein levels and reduction of amino acids prevents cystine stones from forming. The recipe also includes essential vitamins and minerals which help to maintain your pet's skin barrier reducing the chances of infection. Finally, it features Royal Canin's patented antioxidant complex to help combat free radicals, which are molecules that can damage the immune system and kidneys, among other things.

Key benefits

  • low purine content can prevent urate stones from forming
  • limited protein, salts and amino acids can prevent cystine stones
  • supports the skin barrier
  • includes antioxidants can be used as a maintenance diet in breeds prone to metabolic uroliths 
  • can support dogs undergoing treatment with xanthine oxidase inhibitors
  • nutritionally complete: can be dog's only food source.

When to use it

If your pet has recently developed urate stones or cystine stones they may be prescribed this food to stop it from happening again. You should feed your dog this food for at least six months if they've had urate stones and one year for cystine stones. Lifelong feeding is recommended for dogs suffering from irreversible uric acid metabolic disorders.

Some breeds are predisposed to certain types of crystals. Urate stones are most common in Dalmatians (particularly males) and Bulldogs due to differences in their digestive system. Cystine stones are more common in male Bulldogs, Dachshunds, Basset Hounds, Chihuahuas, Yorkshire Terriers and Irish Terriers. Both male and female Newfoundlands are also prone to this type of stone. For these breeds your vet may recommend keeping them on this food for the duration of their life to prevent the recurrence of stones.

Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Canine Urinary U/C UUC 18 Low Purine to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

  • Royal Canin Canine Urinary Low Purine
    My Vet recommended the Royal Canin Canine Urinary Low Purine biscuits after my Bulldog developed Cystine Stones. He loves the taste and has so far not had any more Cystine Stones.

    I buy this food regularly for my gorgeous Dalmatian. My vet suggested it as it specifically helps control uric acid stones. It has all the goodness & nutrients needed.

  • Great for urate stone disorder!
    Buy this all of the time on vets advice for one of my dogs with a urate stone disorder. We discovered her problems before they had chance to affect her thankfully and have fed her on this since and so far have had no issues. She's not that keen but she is not food oriented, so I have to add extras of foods she is allowed, broccoli, grated carrot, grated cheese, ghee ( not all at the same time) will continue to buy especially as it's keeping her well!
