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.

    Good replacement for RC Calorie Control

    By on

    When Royal Canin discontinued the prescription Calorie Control food, I searched for another general weight control food for my three cats with various needs that they would all like. I tried another company's product which they liked at first, but after 1 and a half cases, they won't touch it anymore. So I searched again and found RC Weight Control. They all love it. It looks just like the old Calorie Control (a pate, or paste), and they gobble it down like before, so I assume it smells and tastes the same or better to them. I am only halfway through one case, so I hope they don't get fickle and stop eating it!

    Very Stinky

    By on

    If you’re pregnant like me or have a sensitive nose I would have to recommend steering clear of this food. Got it because it was the most affordable prescription weight control food and the cat will eat it and his stomach is fine, but he is a brick and will do that with anything. This is probably the smelliest pet food I have ever had the displeasure of handling. I had to have my husband do the feeding because I couldn’t handle it.

    The TASTE ?

    By on

    Not sure if my cat that needs weight loss is enjoying this product. He sniffed it several times before he tried it and then only ate a few bites. Not a good sign when he normally gobbles everything down hence, gains weight quickly. It is too expensive for him to be picky so I will keep trying and if it doesn't suit him then no, I won't repeat the order.

    More of a paste than a pate....

    By on

    It was more processed than I thought it would be but he liked it just fine. (And anything that keeps him from trying to steal my other cats' food works for me.)

    My cat won't touch it

    He wouldn't have anything to do with this food. He'll eat other Royal Canin wet foods, but not this one.

    My cats love this flavor

    By on

    I am so happy that my two overweight cats love this brand and flavor. The third one, who is little even as an adult, will also eat at times although she does not need it. Will continue to purchase.

    Great Diet Food

    By on

    I thought I would have trouble switching my cat to Rx diet food, but she loves it. Only trouble is she wants more than she's allowed to have!

    Works! Vet scale to prove it!

    By on

    This product works!!! My poor cat has been gaining weight since I brought her home from the shelter. Vet recommended Royal Canin weight control. Cleo (my cat) went from being 14.2lbs to 12.2lbs in a matter of 2-3 weeks. I feed her in the morning at 7am and at night around 6pm. She loves the food and it's severely helping with her weight loss. I am buying this product from now on to keep my cats weight in check. The company must contact your vet in order to sell this product. That shouldn't be hard since the vet can tell you if your cat has a weight problem or not. So happy!
