Royal Canin Veterinary Urinary SO Small Dog Dry Food
Imagine looking at your small dog and knowing their urinary health is being supported from the inside out. Unleash a world of nutrition tailored for small dogs with urinary problems with the veterinarian-recommended Royal Canin Veterinary Urinary S/O Small Dog.
Royal Canin Veterinary Urinary S/O Small Dog is dry food for small-breed adult dogs (<10 kg) to dissolve and minimize the recurrence of struvite stones. Urinary problems in dogs manifest in the appearance of urinary crystals and stones due to dietary mineral excess or a pH imbalance. These stones can be struvite stones, which are made of magnesium, ammonium, and phosphates and formed in neutral to alkaline urine. They can also present themselves as calcium oxalate stones that can appear regardless of the urine pH.
This diet efficiently helps dissolve all types of struvite stones and reduces their recurrence. Thanks to its ability to dilute your dog’s urine, this food makes the urine less susceptible to forming struvite and calcium oxalate stones. Additionally, due to low urinary Relative Supersaturation (RSS) that translates into lower ion concentration, Royal Canin Urinary S/O Small Dog helps reduce stone formation. What’s more, it contains low levels of magnesium, a natural component of struvite stones.
Lastly, Royal Canin Veterinary Urinary S/O Small Dog also cares for your small canine’s teeth. This food traps the calcium in saliva to reduce tartar accumulation.
