I have a cat that is 12 years old. He got urinary stones when he was 3 years old.

We were advised to give him Royal Canin urinary cat food.

We’ve given it to him ever since.

Has become more and more interested in giving our cats a more natural diet without vegetable additives such as corn and other treats that are abundant in certain foods.

I have read somewhere that it is magnesium that has been removed from the feed to reduce the risk of urinary stones. Is there any food with 100% animal ingredients that is adapted for cats that can get urinary stones?

Then I also read that Royal Canin’s urinary cat food should only be given for 1-2 months after the cat has received urinary stones, and then go back to regular food?

Did our vet forget to tell us?

So maybe a special food for our cat is not needed after all?

Sorry for the long text! Would be thankful for any answer you might have.
