Our cat with kidney disease stopped eating his kidney food so then we changed to fancy feast. The vet said more important that he eats. He is losing weight so she suggested Royal GI HE. It is dry like the kidney food which results in smaller outputs. We are just glad he is willing to eat it. It's only been a few weeks so we'll get him weighed next month to see if it is helping with the weight loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Glory2002 Great for cat with IBD
After 2 disastrous tries with other foods specifically for IBD that caused horrific flares, diarrhea, and extreme weight loss, plus a 2-day stay with the vet to get things calmed down, my cat is now on this diet alternating with homemade cat food designed for cats with IBD and is finally recovering. Thanks, Royal Canin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by troublesniffer Excellent Rx product: "Very tasty" according to our Cats
When a cat needs an Rx diet for a medical condition, there are times when some cats will refuse to eat it. The Gastrointestinal High Energy food was rated extremely high by our two kitties who need it at this time.
We are very happy with this product and most of all that our cats are too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by linda490 I highly recommend Royal Canin Vet Diet High Energy canned cat food.
I highly recommend this Royal Canin Vet Diet High Energy canned cat food. My cat was quite thin, and feeding this product (on demand) brought her back to health. She is now a happy, playful kitty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jennyj No gravy review - just add water
Someone mentioned it needs gravy. My cat also loves gravy and I mix in water and my cat devours it. If no water is mixed in, he'll lick the moisture off and walk away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Meowtwo Needs gravy!
My 14 year old cat has serious inflammatory bowel disease. My vet recommended this as our last food option (we have pretty much tried every specialty product on the market over the years). He will eat the dry version but not the canned. I have tried every trick that has ever worked before with him including adding water, vegetable broth, and juice from canned tuna, but no luck. I wish the company offered a version of this with gravy as this is his strong preference. The good news is that his diarrhea resolved rapidly on the dry food, but I worry about his kidneys without a canned food component to his diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raeleigh This will save your elderly cat with diarrhea!
My 19-year-old cat has had consistent diarhhea for the past 6 months and lost a lot of weight. Nothing was working, including medications. We couldn't figure out what was wrong, as his bloodwork and fecal exam were completely normal. This was a last-ditch effort to save his life. Once he started this food, his diarrhea quit within a day or two and has not returned in the two weeks that he has been on it. He has not yet gained his weight back, but we are certain that will come with time. We are so grateful, as we believed that it was time to euthanize him.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GypsyJane Life saver for my 12 year old cat
Due to constant reflux, I was considering putting my cat down. But, I went to a cat adoption weekend and spoke to several experienced cat owners who said it sounded at least like he couldn't tolerate the SO he was on, but they knew of an SO that was kind to the tummy.
It was pure bliss to see my kitty sleeping on his back with four paws in the air like a peaceful senior that he deserves to be. I'm thankful I found this food for him.
