Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.
Feeding guidelines are general recommendations only. The amount of food required by your cat may vary above or below that listed in this feeding guide. In consultation with your veterinarian it is recommended that you weight your cat 4 - 6 weeks after starting a new diet in order to adjust food intake to maintain or achieve an optimal body weight and body condition score. Consult your veterinarian for specific feeding guidelines for your cat. This diet is formulated to be complete and balanced. It is unnecessary to feed leftover foods, kitchen scraps or additional supplements. It is recommended that your cat be fed 2 - 4 equal portions of the diet per day. Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Store this product in a cool, dry place.
Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Cats will often refuse mixed diets, so we recommend adding the new food to a separate bowl from the old food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

About Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Health For Cats
Worried About Your Cat’s Digestion?
Your cat’s gastrointestinal (GI) system helps support the rest of the body by properly digesting food and making sure to extract the nutrients needed for overall health. Your veterinarian is the expert on your cat, so you should always consult with this trusted advisor to find the best gastrointestinal health solutions and management options for your pet.
Know Your Cat’s GI System
Mouth: where ingestion of hair and formation of hairballs can occur, due to frequent grooming.
Stomach: the first part of the GI tract, where inflamation may lead to vomitting.
Small Intestine and Pancreas: where the small intestine is responsible for absorption of nutrients within the diet and the pancreas aids in digestion.
Large Colon (Tranverse): which is responsible for forming stool.
Large Colon (Descending): which is responsible for forming stool; any alteration to this process may lead to constipation or diarrhea.
Rectum: where stool leaves the body
How Nutrition Can Help
Talk to your vet about your concerns for your pet's GI tract health. Your veterinarian may recommend a Royal Canin GI formula that is:
Rich in nutrients and easily digestible
Balanced for good digestion, with a blend of fibers and prebiotics to support digestive health
Highly palatable to encourage eating, even when appetite is decreased due to gastrointestinal upset
Find The Perfect Balance
With a dry and wet feeding routine, dry food supports positive oral health while wet food supports healthy hydration.
