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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Royal Canin diets preserved?

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.

Where do the ingredients in Royal Canin diets come from?

We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.

Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain by-products?

Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain grains?

Grains can be a healthy part of any cat or dog’s diet. As always, we focus on the nutrients each ingredient provides and grains can provide many important nutrients.

How do you ensure Royal Canin diets are safe for my pet?

Our Quality and Food Safety systems are state-of-the-art and we continue to invest heavily in new technology to make sure they remain that way.

  • We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase.
  • We monitor every load delivered to our plants to verify the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make pet food.
  • We perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to our customers.
  • We manufacture every pet food we sell, in plants that we own; our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 22000 certified for Food Safety.

How do I know which Royal Canin diet is right for my pet?

Based on size, age, lifestyle, and breed, each cat or dog has unique nutritional needs. For healthy pets, use our Product Selector to find the right diet for your cat or dog.

If your pet is experiencing health issues, please refer to your veterinarian for more information. Your veterinarian will consider multiple factors when recommending an appropriate diet.

    By on

    I really appreciate how quickly the folks at Chewy contacted my vet for her approval of this prescription food, and then sent it immediately! I've given it four stars based on my cat's opinion of the food (as i don't make a habit of tasting his food). MacGregor seems to like it fairly well, but I still have to mix it with two of his previous fish-flavored blends. MacG is a fish fiend. But the best news is that in concert with the cisapride he takes twice a day with very ill grace, and the vigorous play sessions he gets with each dose of medicine by way of reward (he just glares at you when you try to reward him with treats, even fish-flavored ones), this food really seems to be helping him I really appreciate how quickly the folks at Chewy contacted my vet for her approval of this prescription food, and then sent it immediately!

I never thought I'd see a day when poop in the litterbox every day would be a cause for celebration, but with megacolon, this is the way it is. For anyone whose cat is struggling with this condition, let me share with you that vigorous play sessions are extremely helpful in the overall treatment plan. … more

  • Awesome food for cats with digestive issues

    By on

    This food was prescribed by our vet after we had one of our cats to the vet 2 times for her mega colon issue and being "backed up" (resulting in an enema). She comes running when she hears the bag, as do the other five cats in the house--they all appear to like the taste! When I told our vet--she said this food is an answered prayer for cat owners who's animals are managing these types of digestive issues, and it is good for all of our cats. I am glad I found it on chewy and they easily managed getting the prescription from our vet's office so it can be shipped monthly. I had a bag that came torn (and cat food had leaked out) and chewy replaced it--no hassles at all.

  • Helped my cat!

    By on

    My vet prescribed this food to my cat after mutiple visits for severe constipation and odd behaviors (crouching, hiding and timidness). After a little over a month on this food she has not had any bowel issues, has not vomited and is much more friendly and outgoing. I wish for her sake I had known about this food years ago! My vet recommend Chewy.com as the food is 20 dollars less on the site than in their office. Thank you Royal Canin and thank you Chewy.com!

  • Fantastic Food at a Great Price!

    By on

    Our vet prescribed this dry food for one of our three cats to help her gastro issues. It turned out that she also needed a food on the SO index for urinary tract pH management and it satisfied that as well. She is doing great and now all three cats love this food. I'm happy with the product and very happy that I can get it at Chewy.com - it's easy and saves me money. Thank you Chewy.com!

  • Saved our cat's life

    By on

    We have a cat that is only 3-1/2 years old and my son's beloved pet. She had developed what I can only call Kitty IBS and was pooping bloody stools outside the litterbox and on the carpet. We tried several different foods and many months of steroids. This is the only thing that seems to have resolved the issue. We are now 2 weeks out and no bloody stools or accidents. So very grateful it literally, saved us from having to put her to sleep.

  • AMAZING PRODUCT!

    By on

    My cat was having very bad constipations problems to the point that on two occasions he had to be taken to vet and have an enema. Within two days of changing his diet to this product, he has been going to the bathroom daily and fully. This is the best product ever! I am thrilled with it.

  • Fixed Lewie's problem!

    By on

    Lewie had digestive issues and after a trip to the vets to be cleaned out, we thought maybe this was just a one time event. Unfortunately we could see just after a couple days he was again struggling to go to the bathroom. We contacted the vets and they put him on Royal Canin and he has had no problems at all! Lewie is a happy guy again!
