Very effective for urinary blockages
on February 28, 2010
Two of my cats developed urinary crystals and/or blockages at different times, and had repeat episodes, until one of my vets recommended this food. Since I started feeding it there have been ZERO relapses. I use both canned and dry; the company's research shows the canned to be more effective, but the dry is very palatable and all my cats really like it. My understanding is that it works by prompting the cat to drink more water. One side effect you will notice is that the cats will have a significantly larger output of urine, but this is a small downside compared to the cat suffering chronic urinary troubles, not to mention the vet bills. Now that my cats have been symptom-free for several years, I alternate this food with over-the-counter varieties, but I always keep it on hand and feed at least one meal per day. Royal Canin seems to be an excellent company; their website supplies copious information about the products.
