Description

Spaying or neutering changes a cat's life, and fortunately, so does Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered Appetite Control 7+ 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 Appetite Control 7+, a specific formula that helps fight the first signs of aging while maintaining your cat’s ideal body weight.

Key Benefits
  • Recommended for cats from 7 to 12 years old to fight the first signs of aging while maintaining an ideal weight.
  • Formulated with an adapted balance of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, EPA and DHA.
  • L.I.P. digestive science innovation uses protein selected for its high digestibility, which helps reduce stool odor.
  • Adapted phosphorous levels help to support renal function, as kidney decline is common in senior cats.
  • Ring-shaped kibble helps to slow ingestion speed and provide necessary nutrients at the right levels.

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.

    Helping an Older Cat Lose Some LBs

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    While the ingredients aren't the best, the science behind Royal Canin doesn't lie. My family member's cat is quite obese at 17lbs and very inactive with some early signs of arthritis. Without adding any exercise to her day she has lost 1lb on this diet, I'm hoping with added exercise she will continue to lose more and help her live a healthier life. Weight loss in cats, especially obese ones, should always be taken slow to help about avoid hepatic lipadosis.

    He likes it!

    My 11 year old cat Dorian is overweight. I have been trying to fine a low calorie dry food for 3 years he would eat. He really likes this one. It is too soon to tell if he has lost any weight but I am very hopeful.

    Great dry cat food

    By on

    I chose this dry cat food, since both my cats could use a filling food. Both of my cats like this food (but they prefer the wet kind of cat food).

    quality brand

    By on

    The only food I've ever bought has been hill's science diet (weight control, senior, most recently prescription kidney diet). However, since my cat has kidney problems, she is not liking any food and has gained alot of weight (I know, odd for a kidney cat). So now I mix this with the hill's prescription kidney dry food and she always eats this first. Hopefully this will at least keep her from gaining more weight. To me this seems like a high quality brand of cat food.

    great for piggy kitty

    By on

    I currently feed my kitty , Daisy the RC weight but she’s always in her food bowl .. like literally every 15 min . I added this in as a mix and it has helped tremendously . I do about a 50/50 mix . She recently had all her teeth extracted due to stomatitis and the weight is very small kibble so I thought that would be easiest for her to eat but she seems to have no problem with this either . My two other boy cats like this too and they munch on it as well . I’ve tried other brands but end up in the vets office . Since making the switch to RC everyone seems to love it and no more tummy issues due to its high digestibility . I have even noticed them being more playful . Win win !!

    Cat Loves It, Vet Loves It

    By on

    My cat has loved this stuff since day one. I'm currently mixing it with half of the spayed/neutered 7+ and half of her old food. Some how she roots around and eats all of this first. Also, about a week after purchasing the new food, my cat was in the vet with a uti. At first I was worried it had something to do with the food, so I told my vet about the switch. To my surprise, they said this food is great for her and to keep her on it. :-D

    Both cats love these

    By on

    While these were recommended by my vet for my "big boy" (22 pounds!), my little guy loves them too! Since they are both "fixed", it is a good treat to give them!

    Healthier Cat, Great Quality Food

    By on

    I had been feeding my cat Iams indoor for years. With every vet visit she was gaining weight. My vet recommended a higher fiber food, and lower portions. I looked around, and this was the highest fiber food I could find. I bought from Chewy because my local store didn't have it in the 7+. I am now on the 2nd bag of this food. My 7 year old female has more energy, and is so much more active since switching her food. She used to barely play, now she really runs after her toys like a kitten! The appetice control is nice. She is a major begger. It took about a week for her to get used to the smaller portions, but the high fiber is helping her feel full. For about a week she started begging again I had been feeding my cat Iams indoor for years. With every vet visit she was gaining weight. My vet recommended a higher fiber food, and lower portions.

For about a week she started begging again (it's been about 2 months on this food), but now she seems to have calmed down again. Overall she seems happier, healthier, and she LOVES the taste! To switch her over gradually the vet said to mix half portion of the old food with half the new for about a week, and when I did she picked around the old food and ate this first. She seems to like the taste more than any food I've tried with her before. I would definately recommend! I know it's higher priced than many other foods, but it seems to be much better quality, and well worth the money I spent for a healthier cat! I'm not sure if she's losing weight yet, the vet will weigh her again in a few months. But I'm hopeful it will help get her into shape! … more
