    Hercules Approves

    By on

    My cat was diagnosed with bladder stones and now is required to eat food with the s/o index label. He is also a bit chubby so our vet recommended this dry cat food. Hercules absolutely loves it! It keeps his bladder healthy and his tummy happy. He actually loves it so much I’m not sure he is losing weight.

    Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Weight Control Formula Dry Cat Food

    I think this food it terrific. I mix it with Royal Canin Satiety Dry Cat food for a total of 3/4 cup & feed it to my Big Guy 3 times a day with 1/2 a 3oz can of wet Beyond cat food twice a day. Hope that made sense because it is the magic combo for satiety, satisfaction and weight loss for my overweight by 6 - 8 pounds, a 20+ pound beautiful Tabby named Callie Boy. He's been on this strict diet now for 10 days and this morning I was just thrilled to find that his collar was significantly loose and he even looks trimmer too. For 2 years I have been trying to come up with a weight loss strategy for Callie Boy who just turned 4 and has been overweight now since he was 2 years old. I failed I think this food it terrific.

For 2 years I have been trying to come up with a weight loss strategy for Callie Boy who just turned 4 and has been overweight now since he was 2 years old. I failed every time and was getting really frustrated and afraid that he would never lose. I was very worried about his health & quality of life so without any help from my vet I started to research what Chewy.com had to offer. I've been shopping with Chewy for a little over a year now so I hoped they had something that would work and they definitely did. I found these Royal Canin Dry Cat Food varieties that require a prescription from your vet. I compared them to Hills Science diet that I was using and these Royal Canin had wonderfully good features like a Satiety variety and Extra Vitamins & extra fiber and much lower calories than all the other so called diet food I found. So I took a chance, ordered 2 varieties, this one that I'm now reviewing and the Satiety variety because my boy was constantly hungry. And they have worked! The Royal Canin all have much fewer calories for the same serving size which was what I was looking for. They are also more expensive but well worth the extra money because they actually work. Callie Boy gained on all the other foods and now he's finally losing. I thought he never would lose the weight and it just scared me for him. So I recommend this Royal Canin food to anyone with a significantly overweight kitty that wants some results and mine came pretty darn fast too. … more

    My cat weighs 17 pounds and needs to lose at least three. I diligently measure his food intake every day. He likes this food but has yet to lose one ounce.

    Had to put my two chubby boys on this food per their Vet. Both cats love it. Chewy's service was great. They contacted the Vet to get the prescription and emailed me to update their progress. The item shipped to me in good time with a decent price. I will be ordering from Chewy again.

    Excellent food, great service

    By on

    My vet recommended this food after my cat developed urinary problems at an alarmingly young age. Since he was neutered, she thought this food would be best for him to not only maintain urinary health but also prevent gaining weight as most fixed cats tend to do. He loves it! No issues since with his urinary tract, and he's stayed an ideal weight. The only 'problem' is he loves this food so much, I can no longer allow him to free feed and must portion it out daily. The order was filled quickly with same-day contact with the animal hospital to obtain prescription and delivered to my door two days later! Excellent product, top-notch service, and speedy delivery. Highly recommended!

    My chubby cats like it

    My big eaters won't touch the other weight control foods I've tried, but they like this. Requires approval from your vet, but Chewy coordinates with them. The order wasn't delayed at all. So far, this is a keeper!
