Couldn't figure out what was wrong with my cat for the longest time. A new Veterinarian recommended this product before going through with allergy testing. Within week and a half his ears had cleared of gunk, his scabby skin was starting to heal, and the discharge from his nose/eyes has been greatly reduced. Bonus is his appetite is back with a vengeance. Always trying to get extra helpings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by catlover addition of soy to formula
My three cats, all very picky eaters, love this food. I was very disappointed to learn that RC is adding hydrolyzed soy protein to the formula due to a "supply shortage of venison ". Well, if it is due to a shortage of venison, why does the rabbit version also contain the soy as a main ingredient? More likely it's an issue of profit. We pay top dollar for this food and now the quality isn't there. Very disappointed. It's likely GMO soy as well and certainly very processed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ANiceLady Mr. Katz eats this.
He is the boss and a cute one too. Since last December he has been sick. So far it is IBD which isn't easy to deal with and then he is fussy. I was told to give him this dry food as well as the wet variety. A recent case of the wet food had a different consistency and he has refused to eat it. Thankfully he is still eating the dry food which I leave out for him to graze on. He eats small bites during the day and night. I am so happy that he is still liking it since it is great food for his condition. I hope he will continue to do so since we go through hoops on the wet food. Thankfully Chewy is there to advise me. I am grateful for that.

I recently found out from our vet that Royal Canin will be adding Soy Protein due to the shortage of Venison. They will be phasing out the PV formula eventually and adding soy to all of their products.
Here is their response : "Due to unforeseen market conditions we have been experiencing difficulties in securing enough venison to produce the quantities required. Unfortunately, we anticipate that the supply challenges will continue. With that said, , we have recently enhanced the Selected Protein PV dry formula to include hydrolyzed soy protein. The addition of soy protein will help to increase the availability of the PV and limit some of the on-going out of stock concerns with this formula. To discuss your pet and how to transition, please call our veterinary technicians at 800-592-6687. Thank you."
Our vet at VCA was not expecting this and has added extra work for everyone now. The recommendation is to try the new soy formula and see if there are any reactions. EITHER way they will eventually get rid of the PV formula and was recommended to start looking for other formulas without chicken.
The PV formula has absolutely helped our pet but now the struggle is to find decent food that works for the allergic cat and our older picky cat that only likes the junk food.
The alternative as of now has worked for both the cat with allergies and the older that has pancreitis

My cat lost nearly 4 lbs. in less than a year, which was super scary. She didn't act sick, and she wasn't vomiting or having diarrhea, so the vet did an ultrasound and a blood panel. The blood tests came back normal, but she found inflammation in my cat's intestine. She attributed the inflammation and weightloss to a food sensitivity. After trying a few other foods with no result my vet prescribed the Royal Canin PV. After just a short time, Suzie stopped losing weight and slowly started gaining it back again. She's now healthy and happy!
