My Toni girl had crystals and blood in her urine a couple months back. My vet put her on the Royal Canin Urinary SO diet (dry food). She is now back to doing great with the exception of a UTI that she is being treated for. Oddly enough the crystals are gone, but now the Oxy bacterial something, UTI is here.
I have basically been told she needs to be on the Royal Canin diet for life. I would like to switch her to wet food, Friskies, but have been urged not to. Royal Canin sells a wet version, but it is 21 for 12 cans? I asked my bet about alternatives and they made me feel like Royal Canin was the only answer. I didn't know if there were less costly alternative food that will prevent teh crystals returning?
(Note: I had been giving her some wet food before her diagnosed with the crystals. Half wet, half dry. I ahev three cats.,)
I am not about being CHEAP, but she is also overweight and now even more so on the ROYAL CANIN
