Royal Canin Urinary U/C Low Purine Dry Dog Food (UUC 18)
Urinary Low Purine is for the nutritional management of:
Reduction of recurrence of metabolic uroliths (urate, xanthine or cystine)
Maintenance diet (particularly indicated in breeds with a high risk of metabolic uroliths, e.g. Dalmatians)
Nutritional support for dogs with leishmaniasis undergoing treatment with xanthine oxidase inhibitors (e.g. allopurinol)
Not recommended in cases of:
Pregnancy, lactation, growth
Use of urine-acidifying drugs
Low purine proteins (e.g. wheat flour and egg) combined with production of alkaline urine lead to a reduced risk of urate stones.
A combination of moderate quantities of high quality proteins and restricted sodium levels reduces the risk of formation of cystine stones.
High levels of biotin, niacin and pantothenic acid, combined with the zinc-linoleic acid complex, reduce transepidermal water loss and support the skins barrier function.
The synergistic antioxidant complex (vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine, lutein) neutralises free radicalsand helps maintain health of DNA, cells and the immune system.
Veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of dogs with specific clinical conditions and are recommended to be used under veterinary advice. For more information on feeding Urinary Low Purine to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Royal Canin Canine Urinary Low PurineMy Vet recommended the Royal Canin Canine Urinary Low Purine biscuits after my Bulldog developed Cystine Stones. He loves the taste and has so far not had any more Cystine Stones.
Royal canin U/CI buy this food regularly for my gorgeous Dalmatian. My vet suggested it as it specifically helps control uric acid stones. It has all the goodness & nutrients needed.
Great for urate stone disorder!Buy this all of the time on vets advice for one of my dogs with a urate stone disorder. We discovered her problems before they had chance to affect her thankfully and have fed her on this since and so far have had no issues. She's not that keen but she is not food oriented, so I have to add extras of foods she is allowed, broccoli, grated carrot, grated cheese, ghee ( not all at the same time) will continue to buy especially as it's keeping her well!
Our Vets choiceNot tried it myself, but Cooper wolfs it down.(he`s the dog)
