Royal Canin VHN Urinary Moderate Calorie
The wet version of Urinary S/O Feline is recommended for recurrent idiopathic cystitis.
In older cats, renal function should be checked before Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie is fed.
5 to 12 weeks of dietary support are required to dissolve struvite uroliths. To avoid recurrence, the diet should be fed for a further 6 months minimum, followed by urinalysis. Once the cat has been successfully managed, it can be maintained on Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie or one of the following diets can be recommended:
Obesity Management or Satiety for an overweight cat, or a diet from the Neutered Feline range for a normal weight cat.
Urinary Moderate Calorie is for the nutritional support of cats in cases of:
- Dissolution of struvite uroliths
- Reduction of recurrent struvite and calcium oxalate urolithiasis using a single diet.
Note: In cases of recurrent idiopathic cystitis, Urinary Wet is recommended. In older cats, renal function should be checked before Urinary S/O Moderate Calorie is fed.
Not recommended in cases of:
- Pregnancy, lactation, growth
- Chronic renal failure, metabolic acidosis
- Heart failure
- Use of urine-acidifying drugs
Urinary S/O Feline effectively dissolves struvite stones.
Diluting urine decreases the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. The larger urinary volume also ensures regular bladder wash-out.
The reduced calorie content of the diet makes it possible to limit weight gain in cats with a tendency to obesity.
Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) that are naturally found on the healthy bladder mucosa but decrease in diopathic cystitis. This causes increased permeability of the bladder to bacteria, toxins and ions, resulting in bladder inflammation and stimulation of pain-sensitive receptors.

royal caninMy cat loves this food especially the gravy
Great productAsked to review this again after I reviewed it March 2014 can still say this product is excellent and both cats still love it and it has kept them alive for nearly 10 years thoug I do change from moderate calorie to ordinary occasionally and they love both equally
Excellent productMy 6 year old male cat has been on this diet for nearly 3 years now following a life threatening bout of a urinary infection and blocked urethra. Knowing how fussy cats can be, I'm very relieved and happy to say he still loves it after all this time! Price is very reasonable and service excellent each time by the Petmeds team.
