Canine Urinary UC Low Purine Dry Dog Food

Royal Canin Urinary UC Low Purine is a veterinary-exclusive dry dog food for breeds with urinary health issues

The benefits

  • Promotes bladder care with controlled methionine and cysteine levels
  • Supports urinary health with low purine proteins, which may help prevent urate stones
  • Formulated with antioxidants to support a healthy immune system

Product description

Some dog breeds are genetically prone to urate or cystine bladder stones because of difficulties breaking down purines found in dog foods or an accumulation of an amino acid called cysteine in the urine. This veterinary-exclusive dry dog food was developed to nutritionally support your adult dog’s urinary tract and bladder health. Moderate levels of high-quality proteins, methionine, and cysteine help reduce the risk of cystine stones from forming. Low-purine proteins may help prevent urate stones. And enhanced levels of EPA and DHA linoleic acid, zinc, and biotin promote a healthy skin and shiny coat. Lower urinary tract issues may be a recurring concern for some dogs. Talk to your veterinarian about keeping your dog on this urinary dog food for long-term urinary support.

Great Product

Unfortunately my Chihuahua was diagnosed through surgery to have cystine stones. We immediately started him on your product which he absolutely loves however you only offer it for large breed dogs sure would be nice if you produced it in small breed. It would also be beneficial if canned was available in the same formula.

Completely controlled our dogs urinary tract issue

Started buying this at the recommendation of our vet. We tried some other brands first and none of them work completely to avoid issues in our dogger. After using this for the last 2 years, there have been no recurrences of infection and Stella Dog is as happy as ever. Thanks Royal Canin!!

My Dog Has Never Been Happier!

I’ve been feeding my Dalmatian this low purine diet for about two years ago after learning he had bladder stones and was constantly licking his groin are due to discomfort and suffering from recurring secondary UTIs. I now recheck his urinalysis twice a year and he hasn’t had a single infection, his stones are well managed, and he’s no longer uncomfortable. His coat looks great (we constantly get compliments on how soft he is!) and he’s a perfect, healthy weight! We couldn’t be happier!

Dogs love it

No one is excited to be on RX dog food. But knowing it is helping their urinary status and the fact that they love it, keeps me coming back for more.

Great Food for Health Concerns

I switched my beloved pet over to this product and I've been happy with the improvement in her urinary health since the change was made. She also likes the small kibbles.
