Rated 5 out of 5 by Siamese Cured Chronic Diarrhea
My 17-year-old Siamese is not overweight - in fact, he's underweight. However, he was suffering from chronic diarrhea. When nothing else worked, my vet suggested feeding him the Royal Canin Satiety food with the hope that its high fiber content would absorb fluids and slow down the movement of food through the digestive tract. Within a couple of days of starting the new food, the diarrhea stopped and he was passing solid stools, and has been in the month since he started eating it. Because he actually needs to gain weight, on my vet's advice, I add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a small bowl of the kibble for extra calories, and mix it up to coat the kibble. And my cat really seems to enjoy the food.
So to anyone whose cat has chronic diarrhea which hasn't responded to the usual treatments, this seems to be a great off label use for this food. Of course, you'll want to discuss this with your cat's vet since the food does require a prescription anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Randy Pleasantly surprised how our cats LOVE this product.
This is our first experience with a prescription
type cat food. Using this product has showed us that there is a vast difference in quality among dry cat food. Just looking at the product (visually and ingredient list) you can see that it is top quality product.
Our prescription was for only one of our two cats.(Prescribed due to an overweight issue). Our challenge was that the other cat just loves the Royal Canin too!
At first we just tried to keep the second cat away from the other cats food.bowl. Finally after talking with our vet, both cats now eat the Royal Canin product. Neither cat has any interest in eating the other prior cat food.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product from Royal Canin.
We also want to mention how pleased we were with CHEWY.COM.
OUR ORDER WAS DELIVERED THE NEXT DAY!
Customer service was excellent and very knowledgeable. We hope to have a longtime relationship with Royal Canin and CHEWY !
THANKS FOR THE.EXCELLENT SERVICE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kycrazy88 Low Fat Goodness
My Vet put my cats on a low fat diet and I was worried it wouldn't be an easy transition. I gave them a sample bowl of Royal Canin Satiety Formula alongside their regular food and they ate all of the low fat food and begged for more. Now, a month later it turns out they love the low fat diet and the pancreatic problems have subsided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ksmiles Great Diet Cat Food
I love this food & so does my cat! Mack is very active, but now that he us getting older, he easily puts on weight. Using Royal Canin Satiety helped him safely reduce from 19+ pounds to 16pounds (his ideal weight) in about 3 months. He loves this food and it fills him up so there is no begging or stealing the other cat's food. Now that he is at 16 pounds, I use the Satiety for a portion of his daily meals to maintain his good weight. A very happy cat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Leah27 Bummed. Not for mature cats.
I have a 13yo female cat who is in great health except for her weight. I saw all the great reviews for this food and was so hopeful I had found something to help her loose weight. But she wasn't able to chew the food, it was really hard, we could just barely cut it ourselves. And we checked the expiration date, it was still good. So after about a week of being fine and loving the food she was throwing it up all the time. We had to switch her to some wet food especially for sensitive tummies temporarily. She is back on her old dry food and back to normal.
I'm sure this works better for younger cats but I wouldn't recommend it for mature cats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueAnnSC Excellent quality
My vet recommended this product for my overweight cat. His coat is gorgeous and much shinier from this food. He has shed a tiny bit of belly fat after six months, but he still begs for an extra feeding each day, just as he did on his regular diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melanie Very happy with this product
My vet suggested trying this food for my cat since he is a bit overweight - he was 15 pounds at his last checkup 6 months ago but currently 13.75 lbs so already down 1.25 lbs! I had tried scheduled feedings before to keep him from eating so much but it just doesn't seem to work for him, he would scarf down the food so fast and then end up throwing it up, or would wake me up in the middle of the night because he didn't want to wait for his food. I can leave this food out all the time and he has lost weight - this product has been a lifesaver for me! Very very happy and would recommend anyone that struggles keeping their indoor cats at a healthy weight. Also I ordered the food and received it the very next day!
