Royal Canin VHN Canine Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie
Royal Canin Canine Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie is a complete feed that helps dissolve bladder stones and stop their recurrence. The moderate calorie formula also helps your dog to maintain a healthy weight.
How it works
Royal Canin Canine Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie helps to dissolve struvite and calcium oxalate stones by acidifying the urine and controlling magnesium levels. A high urinary PH will assist in dissolving existing bladder crystals. Magnesium is a component of struvite, so by controlling your dog’s intake you can make it less likely for the stones to form.
If your dog's urine becomes saturated with certain minerals, it will be more prone to bladder stones. This formula helps to dilute the urine, making crystal formation less likely. Diluting the urine also flushes out the urinary tract helping to get rid of bacteria that can cause infection.
This reduced calorie formula is perfect for dogs who are prone to gaining weight. High protein levels encourage your pet to use fat as energy and promote more active lifestyle.
- acidifies the urine to help dissolve struvite and calcium oxalate stones

When to use it
Struvite and calcium oxalate stones are dangerous to your dog’s health. They can block the urinary tract and cause bacteria build up and infection. It’s not always easy to recognise the symptoms of bladder stones, however there are a few things you can look out for. Difficulty urinating, bloody or cloudy urine and lethargy are all signs that your dog may have a urinary infection.
If you think your dog is suffering from urinary crystals, you should consult your vet for a full examination and diagnosis. Royal Canin Canine Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie can replace your dog’s regular food for the duration of their illness. Check the feeding guide to make sure you’re giving them the ideal amount for their size and weight and monitor their reaction closely. If you notice weight gain, adjust their daily feed.
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 S/O Moderate Calorie to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Royal Canin urinary S/O ModerateLexi was diagnosed with Bladder Crystals 2months ago, and the vet suggested this food. There is now no blood in her urine and the crystals have reduced, she is being monitored by monthly urine samples and whilst it stays this way surgery won't be needed. She will have to stay on this food for life so thank heaven I've found it at a more reasonable price than other retailers.
