Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie is a complete food for adult cats. It has been specifically formulated for cats with Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) who are prone to being or are overweight. It has been developed to help to dissolve struvite uroliths and to prevent them from reoccurring. This is due to a low level of magnesium and acidification of the urine. It will also dilute the urine to encourage regular flushing out of the bladder.

Diluting the urine will also decrease the concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates in the bladder. It will also support the bladder with glycosaminoglycans (GAG), which naturally helps to prevent toxins or bacteria from causing inflammation or pain. During diopathic cystitis glycosaminoglycans are reduced. The moderate calorie content will help your cat with weight management whilst still taking in high quality protein and the nutrients she needs.

 Royal Canin veterinary dients should only be given in conjunction with your vets recommendation!

It is also formulated for the nutritional management of cats with lower urinary tract disease. Its moderate calorie content makes it particularly suitable for cats in which ideal weight is hard to maintain (neutering / overweight / low activity).

  • VioVet Customer Since: October 2009
  • From: Durham, United Kingdom

I have 4 cats one of whom has bladder 'sludge' (vets description!) Until earlier this year she was fine but unfortunately due to flare-up of a chronic illness I was unable to keep up with ordering Hill's prescription c/d diet food until last month.
I have to feed the diet food as due again to illness I haven't kept on top of my cat's weight. In fact I am guilty of overfeeding (she says shamefacedly) and now have 3 overweight cats and 1 cat with bladder sludge but isn't overweight!
(I also have 1 missing cat, the youngest, Jet, he's been missing for a year despite all our efforts to find him)
The problem is since my vet prescribed Hill's Prescription diet c/d food there have been greater variety of foods to help cats with bladder and/or urinary problems. There is also a greater choice of diet foods to decide on.
My two ginger and white males also have allergy related asthma (which is a Hugh worry) as well as being overweight. Which leaves my son's cat, the youngest female, (Jess - because she's black and white!) who is seriously overweight. So to put these into order I have:
2 large (1 has Maine Coon in him) males with asthma and weight issues,
1 small to medium sized female who is obese and:
1 small female who has bladder sludge.
My actual questions are:
What is the best food to feed them all? and
How can I help them lose weight as quick as possible, especially my son's poor 'little' cat as she seems to have back pain so urgently needs to shed the fat?
I'm sorry if I've rambled on but I would really appreciate your advice.
Thank you so much for your patience in reading my lengthy post/questions.
I remain a loyal customer!

Weight loss in cats is an involved topic. essentially you simply need to be less generous and not allow them to eat so much. Fat does not appear from mid air, it is merely an energy store built up from eating excess food. The correct amount of food to eat is always and very simply, the amount of food which results in the correct body weight. Eat more and you get fat, eat less and you get thin. There is no mystery to it. The complication is that cats do not like being kept short of food and most people let them "graze" to their hearts content. If the food is nice, they over-eat. It is more comlicated than that because some foods encourage over-eating whereas others produce a feeling of "fullness" (satiety) sooner. But then habits and learned behaviour and many other things affect it. The principle remains the same though - if you feed less your cats will lose weight. I would be tempted to put all your cats on a high protein, low carbohydrate, wet diet with extra water added to it. This would be a different tack from what your vet has suggested, so it would be best to check with your vet before changing. I would say however that dried diets are very much associated with bladder problems and obesity in cats. Wet diets (especially if you add extra water to them to make the fluid intake high) are better.. This results in producing more dilute urine which often cures bladder problems if you can achieve it.

High moisture, low carbohydrate, high protein diets tend to produce thinner cats without bladder problems. (Prior to the 1970s when dried diets came in, cats were much thinner and did not get the same bladder problems. They were fed on tinned and fresh foods which were less convenient but did have some advantages. I would stay with your current Royal Canin diet but would only use only the pouches or canned varieties. I would also add extra water to make them a bit sloppy. You might find this puts them off their food a bit and they eat less. That could be a perfect result and make them lose a bit of weight. However you need to monitor and adjust things as you go on, which I cannot help with like this. My only other initial comment would be that it is bad for an obese cat to rapidly lose weight. It needs to be gradual and continued. Less food results in weight loss and ideally you measure out the daily allowance to control this, but with a group of cats it is difficult unless you feed them all separately.
