Transition Instructions

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.

Why should I buy veterinary diets from Chewy?

How do I order veterinary diets?

  1. Search for the diet your veterinarian recommends and add it to your cart. You can purchase your veterinary diets along with any other items you need.
  2. At Checkout, you'll be asked for your pet's name and veterinary clinic information so we can confirm that the item is authorized by your veterinarian.
  3. Place your order and we'll take care of contacting your veterinarian. If you have a copy of your authorization, you can expedite the process by uploading a scan or photo of it to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

If your clinic needs more information from you or recommends a different diet, we'll let you know immediately.

I have a copy of the authorization from my veterinarian. Can I send it to you?

Yes. If you have a paper copy of your veterinarian's authorization, you can upload a scan or photo to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

Can I use a veterinarian's authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state? Yes. We accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico.

Why do I need a veterinarian's authorization?

Veterinary diets are formulated with the precise ingredients and nutrients needed to address specific medical issues. Because these diets are formulated for medical issues, veterinary authorization is needed to advise you on the best way to give them to your pet and to monitor your pet's health while they are on the diet.

Can someone else (such as a caretaker or family member) place an order for my pet?

Yes, but we'll need them to contact us and provide the full name of the pet's owner after the order is placed. This is so the veterinary clinic can locate your pet's records when we contact them. Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com or call us 24/7 at 1-800-672-4399.

Do authorizations expire?

Yes. Your veterinarian will tell us when your authorization expires and how many refills you have before they'd like you to check back in with them.

Can I set up automatic refills? Yes. Sign up for Autoship at Checkout and select how often you need refills. We'll automatically ship your veterinary diets for as long as your authorization allows. If you run out of refills or your authorization expires, we'll automatically contact your veterinarian for a new authorization.

What if I have more questions? How can I reach the veterinary diets team at Chewy?

Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com, start a chat on Chewy.com, or call us anytime at 1-800-672-4399. We're here for you 24/7.

    Royal Canin dry cat food

    By Cats on Sep 10, 2021

    My cat is a picky eater and is at least eating it. It has only been 2 days for her to try it especially since receiving this food 8 days after placing this prescription order.

    No Complaints

    By Archie on May 13, 2021

    My cat had been on Royal Canin Urinary SO for many years. My vet recently switched him to this Senior formula. He's 13. I made the switch gradually, and I don't know if he didn't notice the change or just liked this new food as much as the old food, but he seems quite happy with this formula. So as long as it does its job as well as the urinary formula, I'll be happy too.

    Lucky He Likes it

    By Mommycat on Jun 6, 2021

    I was very happy my Bamboo ate this renal food. Unfortunately I limit his dry food because my vet wants him to eat wet.

    We finally realized that the kittens were seniors

    By BJKz on Apr 1, 2021

    Our cats had been eating Royal Canin Spay & Neutered and we realized that they just turned 8 years old. The switch to the Senior Consult was easy and they really seem to enjoy the new dry food.

    Great food for senior cats

    By BKitty on Feb 5, 2021

    My veterinarian recommended Royal Canin for my two 10-year-old cats. They love it, so I love it. Doesn't have a strong order like some dry cat foods. Also, cats seem healthier and perkier. Chewy products and customer service are the tops!

    My two cats love it

    By Mino on Nov 27, 2020

    One of my cats has osteoarthritis (so sad) so his vet recommended senior consult. He jumped in the bowl as soon as I opened the bag. Because he dug in even before I mixed with his old food, he vomited later and stopped eating. I started over with mixing 25 % of senior consult with 75% of his old food, and slowly (over one and a half week) he got back to eating it. Smells nice and feels light. My other cat who is not supposed to eat other than her diet food (due to food allergy) steals senior consult and runs away. Oddly (maybe not appropriate to mention it here) they hate senior consult canned food. Both my cats are canned food lovers but they choose dry food when it comes to senior consult.

    Neither of My Seniors Would Touch This

    By Cortney on Jan 16, 2021

    I have a 14 year old and an 11 year old. They both smelled it, made the "stinky cat" face, and walked away. One of my cats was on strike and wouldn't eat this even after two days of it being out.

    Great food, but my cat hates it

    By Dfwgolden on Dec 1, 2020 top1000Contributor

    I’ve tried and tried to get my cat to eat this per my vets recommendation but he just will not. I can mix it with something else and he eats it but alone he walks away from it. Rather shocking considering the great success I’ve always had with Royal Canin. Now I’ve got half a bucketful that just sitting
