    I can't wait for my owner to feed me every morning. The food is delicious and good for me. Now that I am 14, I have to watch what I eat. I recommend this food and give it a three out of four paw rating.

    Great kibble for elderly kitty

    By on

    This food has a great smell, and Felix prefers it over another over-the-counter brand. Note that this cat food requires a vet prescription.

    19 YEAR OLD CAT!

    By on

    I have a 19 year old cat that I keep on this food. He has always eaten Royal Canin, but I can literally tell the difference, in the way he seems to feel, and in his urine output, when he is on this food. I tried changing, but he doesn't seem to feel as well, and has tummy seems to ache, when I put him on anything else. Also, with anything else, his urine output is ENORMOUS. Doesn't seem healthy. He is a healthy old guy, on this food. Chewy delivers FAST! I love that. Also delivers via Fed Ex. I love that too! LOVE CHEWY!

    Great replacement for the 'Mature'

    By on

    Found out that the 'Mature' type of Royal Canin is discontinued. This is the next best thing (probably the same product for all I know).

    Excellent Results

    By on

    My 13 year old Stella was slowing down, sleeping a lot and not caring too much about her grooming. I decided to switch her to Royal Canin senior diet and am really amazed at the results. After a couple of weeks of mainly senior diet. She is active and allusive as her old self. It is amazing really how peppy she is and the only change is the cat food.

    good stuff

    By on

    Got this for my 2 cats w/CKD but my gang of 6 cats all love this. Had to change from Purina NF because one of the non-CKD guys got soft poops on NF (perhaps she is having a food sensitivity issue w/fish, as NF contains fish digest and Sr Consult does not--both, like all kidney dry diets, are corn-based). So glad no one has issues w/dry Sr Consult. Everyone finds it as yummy as the canned Sr Consult.

    Helped my cat

    By on

    My 12 year old cat had a hospital stay for cystitis. He must be on this food. He's eating it well. Drinking more water too. A nice benefit has been he's moving faster, jumping now when he didn't before. I'm not sure, but maybe it's the glucosamine chondroitin. Whatever the case he's doing very well on this food.

    It is helping

    By on

    We bought this for our 15 year old cat. He was losing weight due to poor kidney function and vomiting. He likes it and can keep it down. He has stopped losing weight. Our 8 year old cat likes it to.

    Excellent, well tolerated.

    By on

    Once my vet determined that my cats needed to change food I was concerned due to potential stomach upset. But, the transition went very smoothly & the food is being tolerated very well
