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

This hypoallergenic food really helped my cat's gastrointestinal issues since he's allergic to chicken-meal products. His stool is back to normal and he has a beautiful shiny coat too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AbbyB Worth the expense!
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!

My cat is picky and he loves this! We were buying the rabbit/pea, but it was out of stock, so we bought this. Excellent choice for my cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kris4 Great Product!!
I have two cats that have gastrointestinal issues and I have tried about every limited ingredient food you can find. This food has been great for them. I can even get it cheaper ordering here then I can from my vet. Getting the food here is carefree...I never have to worry about having it or going to get it. It is great. I even order my dogs food from here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScubaKathe This is exactly what my precious kitty needs
I have a "special needs kitty" who can only have this formula. Have been buying it for years, but never at Chewy.com. It is a little less espensive at Chewy, but I wish I could find some coupons to save a little more money for this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by debstagirl Great Service and Prices
We chose to get this pet food at Chewy.com because it cost less than at our vets. Our pet has allergys and this food needs a prescription. They needed that from our vet to order. I got upset thinking I won't be able to make this happen it will take a week or more and I am out of food. Chewy.com faxed our vet and we got the food in the mail the next day. I was so happy and impressed. They have the best customer service and prices. I am not used to such fast service. Thanks Chewy.com!
