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.

    When getting back in stock

    By NF1931 on Oct 8, 2021

    Does Royal Canin know when they will get this dry food back in stock again? My cats are a rescue and they are part Domestic or American Shorthairs and one is also part Himalayan. I also have a purebred 17 yr old Tonkinese who needs tiny bits.

    Look at the top ingredients... corn and byproducts. This food should not be sold. Terrible. Buyer beware, don’t trust the brand... read the ingredients.

    Corn? Chicken by products?

    By Evangeline on Nov 26, 2020

    There you go, the first 2 ingredients that are absolute NO NO’s in a cats diet. What is going on Royal Canin? Why would you use these cheap fillers for top ingredients? I’m fact, the first 8 ingredients are not quality at all. Thankfully CAT people, I read!

    There is Something About This Food

    By Sophie on Oct 8, 2020

    Our 8 cats are not eating it. Royal Canin is hit or miss amongst our fur babies and this particular formula is not popular at all. They do like RC wet food though. It's not fun trying to find something that almost all my cats like but I won't give up as there are plenty of options here on Chewy!

    Fussy Cat Loves American Shorthair

    By PetRescueMike on May 16, 2020

    I have a rescue cat that was abandoned, so it appears that cats that have gone months without domestic cat food are very fussy. Anyway, my cat is not a lover of dry cat food, but she has changed her ways with this formula. I have gone through various brands as they started to get stale it went to my dogs. Well, certainly not the case with this food, so it is highly recommended.
