In December 2008, my 5 year old domestic shorthair cat Lucas had a urinary blockage and spent several days at the vet recovering. Fortunately he survived and my vet recommended that I start feeding him the Royal Canin Urinary SO to help prevent the issue from happening again. The food was well liked. Lucas continued on the RC Urinary SO for several years with great results. In April 2014, Lucas began vomiting -- typically in the early morning hours and mostly broken down food from his meal the evening prior. At first it was typically every other day to every 2nd day. Within 3 - 4 weeks it progressed to every morning without fail.

My cat, Miracle, almost died two years ago due to lower urinary tract struvites. He made it to hospital, literally, just in time. Since Miracle has been on this canned Rx food, there has not been any problems. He's received great check-up reviews. Miracle will be celebrating his 15th birthday March 22nd. Out of all the Rx foods he eats for his condition, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Urinary SO Morsels in Gravy is his absolute favorite. He's usually a nibbler when he eats, but this food seems to be an exception. I have to use it as a special treat since the portions are small. Miracle had been on hard food all his life; even prescription hard food which did not help his condition. I am very grateful for Royal Canin canned food. He's a very happy and playful cat.

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Urinary So Moderate Calorie Dry Cat Food
Due to blood in urine, I have been feeding my cats Royal Canin Urinary S/O for about 5 or 6 years. They each get 1/3 cup of dry in the morning and evening, and 1/4 can wet in the afternoon. All was well until about March 2017 when one cat was vomiting regularly. Vet did Xrays, bloodwork, etc. and no issues determined. Switched to a Royal Canin "bland" food which the wet worked fine but too much of the dry gave her diarrhea. Slowly mixed bland and S/O to get her back on track and it was fine. Then switched to all S/O and in 1 day she was vomiting again. Other cat seems to have no issues. I'm guessing Royal Canin had a formula change and it is detrimental to some animals. Used to be good, now cat vomits regularly.My female miniature poodle had bladder stones removed surgically and was put on a diet of Hill's multipurpose C/D. I started feeding it to my Yorkie and he was eating it but the kernels were large and I thought I would try the Royal Canin. They did not have the small dog so I fed him the large regular SO. He started vomiting and getting loose stool. I took it back to the vet and they ordered the small bite. While I was waving for the small bite to come in I switched to Hill's again with no problem. I picked up the small bite when it came in and the Yorkie got loose stool then diarrhea and vomiting. Last night I took him to emergency because of black stool. He was diagnosed with blood in his urinary tract. There was no signs of parasites and they did blood work which looked normal. The vet put him on special medication for a week. I suspect that the food has caused the problem and after spending $240 I am taking the food back to the vet.
