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.

  • Awesome Healthy Food for Our Picky Eater!

    By on

    Our cat has just turned 14 and I knew it was time to research a new healthier cat food to help supplement his needs. So we did some research and came up with trying the Royal Canin brand and ill admit we have tried other health conscious foods in the past and he will just smell them and walk away. This stuff he chows down like he simply cannot get enough! I also notice that he seems more active and a better mood then before (unless it is just my mind being optimistic) But nonetheless we are going on 6 months with him on this food and I highly recommend it and so does Rocco! :)

  • Six out of six say no

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I was hopeful that my senior kitties would enjoy this. One of my cats in particular doesn't have many teeth, and I thought the smaller pieces might be easier for her to pick up. Not one of my six cats would try it. When I mixed it with their normal food, they wouldn't eat that either. They're normally fans of Royal Canin (Weight Care and Siamese), but not this one.

  • Great Food!

    By on

    My cat Rocco is a male cat just over 12 years old and he was starting to gain weight and seem sluggish on commercial brand cat food. That's when I had an idea to research a healthier food with a trusted brand. He is a picky eater so at first I was scared it would be hard to switch foods. But he absolutely loves this brand and goes crazy for it! I also noticed he slimmed down just a bit and more energy! We will be sticking to this brand from now on :)

  • Old toothless Wonder Gumbalina

    By on

    Got a 14+ indoor only girl....who has no teeth, hyperthyroidism and hides from the other 6 indoor boys. She lives in the master bedroom with her food...I am always on the lookout for something for her with small kibble. She likes and prefers dry food. I scour Chewy constantly to try different products that match or supplement her health needs. So far this is a BIG hit as dry food. In fact, I have to hide her food when she is resting so the other cats don't get it.

  • Royal Canin Aging 12+

    By on

    This is the first time I have tried this food and it's my new favorite for my almost 17 year old cat. The pieces are smaller than normal cat food which suits an older cat who normally is missing a few teeth. She likes it, she doesn't spit it up and nutritious -- I couldn't ask for more...

  • Not One Bite

    By on

    I purchased this RC food to see if it would be helpful for my 2 senior cats (11 yrs. and 17 yrs.); however, when I put a "test" portion in with their regular food, they ate everything around it. Tried this several go! So, I will be staying with RC's Sensitive Digestion for all my 4-footed people because they do like that food and no regurgitation!

  • still figuring it out

    By on

    I was a little disappointed to see the bag was ripped when it came, but it was a small hole. Taped it up, the cats are still trying to figure if they like. I guess I didn't know it was seafood flavored. My litter likes turkey or chicken, but we're working it out.

  • He liked it

    By on

    My senior kitty needed a food that was lower in phosphorus, and I found this one after purchasing Royal Canin kitten for my new addition. He does eat it and likes it, but he seems to have trouble with the size/shape and crunching the food sometimes. He doesn't have dental issues. I think it would be better if it were shaped like the kitten food (which he's gotten in to and has no issues eating) or smaller pieces for easier eating.
