  • Loved by Cats with Sensitive Stomachs

    By on

    My five cats have been on Royal Canin Veterinary Formula Gastrointestinal Fiber Response, which worked to bring IBS under control for about four years. One sensitive cat was vomiting bile awaiting her breakfast and dinner. Switching to this GI moderate calorie has been gentler on her. The rest of them like it as well. I had intended to switch over eight days. But, they left the Fiber Response and ate only this dry food after five days. They also get canned food, which will be in another review. My vet has visited a Royal Canin facility, where the veterinary formulas are made separate from the over the counter brands, and was impressed.

  • Loved this product over others

    By on

    Our cats are older and need the gastrointestinal diet prescribed by our Vet. However, they were getting tired of the "fiber" version, so the vet prescribed this moderate calorie food even though neither is overweight. They love the taste and prefer it over their prior food. I understand that it is prepared a special way to give it more flavor because it has less calories. We have 2 happy cats so we are happy too! Chewy helped us get the updated Rx from our vet and so saved me lots of time. Many cudoos to them.

  • The Empress loves it!

    By on

    I bought this cat food as a gift to a cat who's a close personal friend, although we don't live together. This fine elderly brown tabby was prescribed this food for a chronic gastrointestinal problem, and since she has been inhaling the stuff, she hasn't had a recurrence! This food doesn't give her any distress whatsoever. Admittedly, the Empress will eat anything, but she didn't have any problems settling into this new diet. According to her mum, she is eating it, gaining a bit of needed weight, and purring like she means it. A total success!

  • He loves it!

    By on

    Had to find something for my one cat that has chronic constipation problems and has had 2 very expensive overnight stays at the clinic because of it,so my vet recommended this food. He loves it and seems to be doing great so far. He does take 2 medications 3 times a day,but this food has helped a lot. My other cats like it also!

  • Great Cat Food

    By on

    I bought the Royal Canin cat food after my daughter recommended it. My cats love it and I plan to continue to feed it to them. We had been feeding them Science Diet, but they seem to like this better.

    I LOVE this diet! MY kitty has a VERY sensitive gut AND also forms struvite crystals in her urine :( This diet is formulated to help break down AND prevent them from forming. All while being gentle enough on her stomach to keep her from vomiting and having terrible diarrhea! Thank you Chewy for carrying Royal Canin's Prescription diets!

  • My seniors love it!

    By on

    I was worried after the prescription food my cat was on was no longer being produced. No need to worry as Spencer loves this food. His brother loves it also even if he is not required to eat prescription food.

    I have a 17 year old cat who absolutely loves this food. The vet recommended it for our old boy and his stomach can completely tolerate it well. He rarely gets sick anymore

  • Weight loss, cat loves this product!

    By on

    My cat needed the original formula for gastrointestinal health. He gained a lot of weight, and ate a lot more than he was prior to that. I figured switching to the moderate calorie would help him lose weight and feel that he was eating about the same in volume. The moderate calorie version has been a godsend! He loves it, eats less (I think due to higher protein than the regular formula), and has lost weight already since starting it less than a month ago! Also, his stool is now very normal, and it hasn't been since I got him from the shelter about a year ago. This product really is the best choice for my little guy at this point.
