sandellie4 Posted February 1, 2012 Share Posted February 1, 2012 We have a small dog, a coton du tulear, who has just had surgery for calcium oxalate stones in his bladder. To prevent them, he has been prescribed Royal Canin Urinary SO. But I don't feel 100% comfortable with the ingredients list (corn is used as a filler, etc.). We've always fed him high-quality food and now suddenly it seems there isn't much choice but to switch to this food (or a similar one that looks about the same). It's important to avoid the stones, because they require surgery. But is there any other way to do this and keep him healthy? Is Royal Canin okay for most dogs and maybe I'm just nervous because I already researched his food and made a choice that had better, more natural ingredients overall? I don't know what to do. If Royal Canin means that all of his numbers, PH, etc. are good, that doesn't necessarily mean that the food isn't bad for him in other ways. Any thoughts? I adore the vet, but he's not really a nutrition expert so he can't give me guidance beyond the prescription. Sandy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
