Feeding guidelines are general recommendations only. The amount of food required by your cat may vary above or below that listed in this feeding guide. In consultation with your veterinarian it is recommended that you weight your cat 4 - 6 weeks after starting a new diet in order to adjust food intake to maintain or achieve an optimal body weight and body condition score. Consult your veterinarian for specific feeding guidelines for your cat. This diet is formulated to be complete and balanced. It is unnecessary to feed leftover foods, kitchen scraps or additional supplements. It is recommended that your cat be fed 2 - 4 equal portions of the diet per day. Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Store this product in a cool, dry place.

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.

    I was able to get the prescription cat kibbles with no muss, no fuss. The customer service was extremely helpful and I was able to take a picture of the Rx and send it as an attachment. The kibbles were shipped that same day. Free delivery and the kibbles arrived in 2 days. Our Wilbur is no longer constipated!! The office requested a photo of Wilbur and when they received it, they sent me a thank you note. I will continue to do online shopping with Chewy.com.

    One of my 3 cats was having bad constipation problems, to the point where he stopped using his little box....I guess he came to view it as a place of pain. I had to take him to the vet and they checked him out gave him an enema and put him on some awful gooey med. It was a nightmare trying to give him his meds 2x a day. Changed their diets to mostly wet cat food. He would get a little better, but nothing seemed to really work. Took him back to the vet at least 3 more times.

But, i had reached my wits end and decided to try this Royal Canin cat food that I found online on my own. My vet OK'ed the script, got it, and it instantly changed everything. Within a day, my cat Frankie was pooping up a storm (in a good way!). He has not had a single constipation issue since I started using this cat food (a year). I started mixing it with their normal hard food. I was concerned about my other 2 cats, but I think as long as I am mixing it, they are fine. Their pooping has remained good. I use my best judgement....sometimes I'll go a couple days using less, just to try and make sure no one is getting too much fiber. Best yet...all 3 of my cats like the food! Because my vet was a little hesitant about making the move to more fiber, I'd recommend anyone to first work with your vet before making the move. But, this cat food was a blessing for my Frankie. … more

  • Happy kitty

    I started feeding this food to one of my cats about two years ago and it really made a huge difference. My cat is about 6 years old now and didn’t show signs of digestive issues at first. Then we noticed he started going outside of his box. We brought him to the vet right away and while they treated and healed his uti he still wouldn’t use the box. We changed litter, location, the types of boxes, how many boxes, calming plug ins etc with no luck. Finally after 100’s of dollars and many vet visits we found a vet who listened to ALL of my cat’s symptoms and for him it turned out he just needed a good fiber filled gastro specific food. After a week he never went outside the box again. Be careful I started feeding this food to one of my cats about two years ago and it really made a huge difference.

    The employees of Chewy are the most efficient, courteous and professional that I have ever dealt with on-line. They helped me get a prescription from my vet for Fiber Response for my cats. I did not have to do anything. The prices are lower than any other place. I pay $55.00 for a bag of Fiber Response from PetSmart and I paid $10.00 less per bag from Chewy and shipping was free( 2 bags were ordered). I got it in 2-3 days. I get my cat food delivered to my door with free shipping and the quality is always superb. All " use by" dates are better than the pet stores.

  • Killing us to get to this food

    By on

    We have 1 of 3 cats that has been experiencing severe constipation for almost 1 year. She is on the verge of Mega Colon. Recently we made a midnight trip to the ER based on her discomfort level. The Dr made recommendations to quadruple her medication doses and to start feeding the Royal Canin Fiber Response food. Being 10 years old, our cats are now very picky about their food, but usually mixing with their old food will help. I don't have any feedback to how it has worked yet for the constipation issue, but we were truly amazed that they ALL thoroughly LOVE this food and are trying to kill us for more.

  • Excellent Service

    By on

    My 19-1/2 year old cat, yes he is 19, started having digestive issues the first of the year. I couldn't find Royal Canin anywhere in my area without going through a special order. The Vet's office told me about chewy. WOW. A wonderful customer service representative took my order. I had it in 3 days! My cat has not accepted it as his main food, but he is eating it occasionally. Thank you chewy for helping us quickly in a stressful situation..

  • My eleven cats love this food!

    By on

    I had to come up with a formula as this food works so well on bowel movements. Used to feed just High Energy. Had some constipation problems. I now feed 1/2 High Energy and 1/2 Fiber Response. I had some loose stools on some of my cats on full Fiber Response (it's THAT GOOD)! My cats are on free feed and they are all just thriving on 1/2 and 1/2. It's got a good Urinary SO factor too, which is good for my cats. Just saw my vet and discussed this and she agrees. It's a great company and products.

  • Unfailing GREAT Product AND Service !!!!

    By on

    The item I purchased helps my cats to have some hard food that is digestible and also to have some crunch, which they love--rather than a commercial diet. Also fabulous is Chewy's service and professionalism around whatever you order from them. I use this hard food to supplement a mostly canned diet, and also as a treat ! Royal Canin GI Fiber Response works well in both of these regards !!

  • It's a miracle!

    By on

    I don't like looking at the ingredient list, but this food is a miracle.It works wonders for constipation, I have 5 kitties and they all love this food, my vet said it was ok for all of them to eat it. I've been feeding high end "healthy" food, but I always seemed to be having some sort of issue, vomiting, constipation, crystals... this food resolved all of the problems!

  • Works well!

    By on

    My cat has occasional issues with constipation. Recently she stopped eating and nothing I tried at home worked. The vet gave her lactulose but she wasn’t having it and it didn’t seem to be helping. I saw the reviews for this food and asked the vet for a prescription. Now she has regular bowel movements and is much better. It took about a week or mixing her old food with this but now she eats all of it with no problem. I’m thankful this food has really helped her.
