Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa84 Good for my cat with IBS
My poor kitty cat has IBS and is allergic to many foods (chicken, fish, etc.). The vet wanted him to be on a novel protein diet and this fits the bill. I do wish it had less carbs, but I am happy since he is doing well on it. He still has to get monthly B12 shots (which helps with nausea/vomiting). I am so happy Chewy has our food now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by etmerritt33 Running changes unacceptable and no satisfaction from RC
We have a 13 year old Abby cat that had a serious colon resection surgery. His doctor put him on this food. Everything was great through the first 2 cases. The consistency of the food was moist with an ample abound of gravy. Our cat loved it. Then, the next 3 cases had contents that appeared very different. Yellow orange looking liquid and the food is more like gelatin. I called RC and got no satisfaction. Only that the rabbit meat varies in color at times. The explanation made no sense to me. My cat is not eating this food well any longer. I am aggravated at RC because these products MUST BE CONSISTENT in taste and appearance. RC appears to not care and I got no satisfaction from talking with them. After this experience I would not recommend RC products to anyone. This is especially ridiculous given what they charge for this food!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CatMom Great for my IBS cat
After my 10-year-old cat was diagnosed with moderate IBS, we started several months of trialing different foods to see what her body could handle. The Royal Canin Pea & Rabbit line is the only kind she is able to eat that doesn't cause an intestinal reaction. Even novel proteins such as buffalo cause terrible IBS flareups. We tried numerous proteins and brands of food during the trial.
My cat eats the canned version of the Royal Canin Pea & Rabbit 99% of the time. Royal Canin also makes a dry version of the Pea & Rabbit, which she gets from an automatic dispenser if no one is here to feed her.
The water content in the canned version will vary from case lot to case lot. I occasionally add water to my cat's meal if the food looks a little dry. (This also gets more water into her system.)
Pros about this food:
1. It contains a single source of protein and no grains.
2. It conveniently comes in a dry version as well.
3. After eating the pea and rabbit formula for a few weeks, my cat had fewer IBS flareups. (After I supplemented her diet with a great probiotic, my cat's IBS symptoms disappeared entirely.)
4. The cat gobbles it up, so it must taste great.
Cons about this food:
1. It contains carrageenan. (Not a fan of this ingredient, but I ultimately decided that the IBS put my cat's life at risk more than the carrageenan would.)
I would recommend that anyone with a cat with IBS give this line of food a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cats4 Royal Canin PR wet food is the best
My cat Benny-boy had severe skin problems consisting of chewing himself bald and his chest area was nothing but red blotches where he licked all the hair off. I tried him on different regements, I tried him on different foods containg no grain nothing worked. Someone told me there cat was allergic to protein. I did some vresearch and tried him on different foods such as Duck,Vension,& Rabbit. The first time I tried him on Royal Canin PR he loved it. I have been feeding him this now 2 months and no skin problems at all. His coat has a beautiful shine. He is so satisfied and happy and that makes me a very happy mom/owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by juliet1 this food has solved my cat's issues!
My vet recommended my cat switch to this food. My male ragdoll was having some allergies and stomach issues to a chicken-based blend. The rabbit blend has solved everything, and his coat has even been softer. He is a lot happier and he loves the taste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HTowncats A favorite
Both of my cats love this food - one will eat most anything and the other is quite picky. I tried the Duck formula but they were not a fan of that flavor.
We are treating a skin condition as an allergy. The jury is still out as to whether this food will resolve it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reggie2 excellent quality
I have a new kitten that is allergic to certain food and grains so the doctor put him on this and he is doing better. He will probably always have to stay on it, but that is okay--just so long as he feels good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CatsRule101 Cat eats it!
He has refused other prescription foods but does eat this, although without his Prednisone, he backs off on all eating.
The quality of the food is good & the consistency from can to can is good.
This stuff is pricey but worth it as it is helping to keep my cat going.
