Description

Spaying or neutering changes a cat's life, and fortunately, so does Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered 12+ Dry Cat Food. Spaying and neutering is a simple operation that has a big effect on hormone levels in cats. And while these changes have many positive outcomes, like a friendlier demeanor and longer life expectancy, there is one challenge. As soon as 48 hours after surgery, changing hormones can cause a cat’s energy needs to decrease by 30% while also causing a 20% rise in appetite. This can lead to significant weight gain. As experts in health nutrition, Royal Canin designed Spayed/Neutered 12+, a specific formula that supplies a range of nutrients to promote healthy aging.

Key Benefits
  • Precisely formulated for spayed or neutered senior cats over the age of 12 years with easy-to-chew kibble.
  • An exclusive complex of antioxidants, including lycopene and omega-3 fatty acids support body systems through the aging process.
  • A moderate level of fat content helps your loved one maintain an ideal body weight.
  • Enriched with L-carnitine plus L.I.P. digestive science innovation that uses protein selected for its high digestibility.
  • Adapted phosphorous levels help to support renal function, as kidney decline is common in senior cats.

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7-day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

    good choice

    By on

    I have 2 cats over 12 years old and have tried different foods for them. I was concerned about their weight so I tried the Royal Canin. I was amazed at the difference it made. I have noticed a slight weight loss but what really got me was the increase in their energy. They have begun playing again and not sleeping as much (all day) that they had been.

    Dry cat food

    By on

    Hank prefers the veterinary gastrointestinal food over the aging spayed/neutered 12+ dry food. Hank preferred the G.I. food in taste and size. The kibble was easy for him to eat and he really liked it. Unfortunately, I had to switch to the aging spayed neutered dry food because he was getting very runny stools from the GI food. Is there an in between food for cats with digestive issues with good taste and small in size?

    Mia Loves It.

    By on

    My cat, Mia, is 15 years old and I've been feeding her 12+ dry & 12+ wet for about 8 months. She was very overweight from her previous food and she has definitely lost some weight. She is no longer throwing up and she likes both the dry and wet food. Mia has always been a pretty finicky eater so I was very pleased when she immediately took to this food. I will definitely keep her on this food.

    I am doing a slow conversion to this food but so far they are eating it and not leaving any in the bowl. I hope to see results on my chubby girl soon.

    My old kitty won’t eat

    By on

    My 19 & 1/2 yr old kitty won’t eat this food. It does have a weird smell to it. I’ve tried to mask it, with toppers and broth over it, to no avail. What’s weird is she likes the wet “aging” canned cat food, so I thought this would work. Maybe it’s just bc she’s a picky eater?

    Helpful for senior cats with early to moderate chronic kidney disease!

    By on

    This is an excellent, palatable dry food for senior cats, particularly those who suffer from early to moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD). As kidney function in senior cats begins to decline, the kidneys are increasingly unable to adequately filter toxins from the body. Phosphorous, which is a by-product of meat protein, then builds up in the blood and begins to make the cat very sick. Gastrointestinal upset and frequent vomiting often ensue. This food contains just 0.52% phosphorous on a dry matter basis (as of March 2020), which is approaching the low phosphorous content of prescription CKD formulas. I see some reviewers here complaining about “fillers” and decreased protein amounts in this This is an excellent, palatable dry food for senior cats, particularly those who suffer from early to moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD).

I see some reviewers here complaining about “fillers” and decreased protein amounts in this formula. They need to understand that in order to lower the phosphorous content of a food so that an older cat with chronic renal disease can benefit from it, the amount of protein has to be reduced somewhat. This is because the majority of phosphorous in a cat food comes from the meat included. Along with adequate hydration, a food like Royal Canin Aging 12+ can help to make a profoundly positive difference in the quality and quantity of life of an old cat with failing kidneys! … more
