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.

    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.

    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...

    I'm still in the blending stage with this food, so my senior cats are getting both this new food and their old food, but it looks like they're cherry picking the new food, so I'd say I have a hit on my hands!

  • It's a Hit!

    By on

    Don't often write reviews, but I felt I should. As Zoe has gotten older, she has gotten more particular what she eats. Based on other reviews I though I'd try this. Zoe really likes the food. This was our first order to Chewy and I was surprised when it arrived on a Saturday. Great service! I will definitely be a return customer.

  • Great Food!

    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 :)

    My cats love this food. I was worried when I switched to the aging formula, but there were no problems. Also, love the super fast shipping from Chewy and the great customer service people. I no longer shop in pet stores - no reason to. Chewy has everything I need for dogs and cats and products are delivered to front door practically overnight. Great company! Thank you.

    She loves her new food, both dry and wet. She is a finicky one but this seems to be the key. She waits in the morning for me to give it to her............
