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.

    Gobbles it up!

    By on

    He loves this cat food in both chunks with gravy and paté. It also helps with his unending hunger from having to take steroids for his asthma. I can give him more when he asks for it and still keep the calories low enough so he doesn't gain weight.

    My cats love it!

    By on

    My two Siamese cats, Darla and Quinn, were ordered by our vet onto a diet since they are overweight(Quinn being the heaviest of the two). We tried the Royal Canin Satiety Support initially. Quinn didn't mind that, but Darla frequently turned her nose up and refused to eat it. So, I tried the Royal Canin Calorie Control, and they both love it. They can't wait for their twice a day feeding and they devour it. I am now waiting to see how it impacts their weight, but that may take a couple of months.

    Cant wait till its in the dish

    By on

    Paca was given this after she had her teeth cleaned. She could not eat it fast enough. She was practically climbing into my lap so she could see was going into her dish. I also have to order another RC because she was just diagnosed as diabetic. Paca ate that food also but left some in the dish. Whew !! Glad I have 2 choices for her.

    Here's another one my cats won't touch!

    By on

    My cats are impossible to please with anything other than something more unhealthy. Neither cat will eat it. After the first bite that was it. I will have to send it back.

    The cats need to lose some weight. They are devouring the food, and they tend to be picky. I'm pleased.

    Livesaving food!

    By on

    This food has been a godsend for our kitty. She was pretty overweight, which was leading to her inability to keep herself clean, which lead to bladder issues and non-use of the litter box. I was at my wits end, and I know she couldn't have been happy either. We had tried several different "diet foods" but it were not able to find one that would also address her urinary issues. Finally, a new vet did some research and came upon this food. It has been nothing short of miraculous!! Her skin problems are gone, her tushy is pristine, and she has lost the appropriate amount of weight. She is a normal sized kitty now. THANK YOU!!

    Weight Loss Success for a fat boy <3

    By on

    We are not uninformed as to diabetes in kitties. Our vet began to express great concern over our indoor kitty's weight. He is very playful, but we felt we could control more with diet. The Royal Canin formula has been the ONLY food brand that stays true & consistent to its formula & no additive fillers. Since our kitty has been on this, he is now down a little over a pound within a year. He was 16+ lbs. Now he is down to a little over 14lbs. This formula is great in its consistency and weight loss in caloric intake a cat needs. A wet can a day will keep the vet away, except for shot updates :-)

    Pixie Loved It!

    By on

    Of course my Pixie would love this food...she loves food. And that's why she's on a calorie control diet. I like to give her variety between soft and hard. I'd been feeding her another perscription weight control hard and soft brand. She ate it but I could tell, she wasn't thrilled about it. The flavor looked fairly bland. The Royal Canin seems to have more sauce in the food, making it more flavorful. I have had much success wth Royal Canin feline prescription diet products. All 3 of my felines are on individual perscription diets: urinary, renal, and weight control.
