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.

  • Really hoped this would work

    By on

    I am a small kitten/cat rescue and have 2 IBD rescue kitties at home. I've repeatedly been to the vet and have been trying everything to control their diarrhea. This looked like a great product and a logical choice given that they hated the other GI foods from the vet and had lost weight. I was extremely hopeful given the increased kcal it and the dry version would provide. Great food, but only marginally improved the diarrhea and the kitties don't eat it. I've had success with the Purina Gastro dry and wet in the past so am going to try that. I really hoped it would work and they would eat it. Will pray the Purina GI works.

  • cats have stopped throwing up!

    By on

    Two cats, one positively has Irritable Bowel, been on PredisoLone and a mild chemo drug. The other a finicky manx. Had issues with both cats eating. Tried lots of brands, natural grain free, baby food, and the treats ... what ever I could get down them. Finally our youngest just was sick. With a kitty whispering Vet, she told us to forget all that stuff, use Royal Canin or Hills. Preferably Hills Hydrodized. But neither of the cats would eat it. So, we bought the Gastrointestinal High Energy Canned and Dry. I only gave them a few spoonfuls at a time of each. I found adding warm water to the wet and mashing it up, increased their desire to "lick" it up.

I found adding warm water to the wet and mashing it up, increased their desire to "lick" it up. I don't add more to the bowl, but pick it up and give them clean bowls... she won't eat out of "his" bowl... and his appetite is monstrous. Before this, one or the other was throwing up "hairballs" almost daily. Now in 3 months, maybe had two incidents total. It's expensive, but Chewy has a good price compared to VCA or Amazon. You need a prescription, but all I had to do was take a photo with my phone and upload it to Chewy's email. Customer service at Chewy was very helpful also. So, while it isn't devoured like Friskies or Whiskas, they lick the bowl clean and I let them eat the dry (only 1/8-1/4 c) and put it also into a fresh bowl before more goes in.. they clean the bowl overnight. A good vet and these wet and dry, saved my kitty's life, and his finicky sister is doing so much better on the diet. And while expensive, there is little to no waste this way. And I am now able to add a Hydrodrolized Hills z-d now and then and with the mussy process, they will now complete a few cans of this also- Unfortunately Royal Canin doesn't seem to make a wet Hydrodilized food. … more

  • Our cat loves it!

    By on

    We have 11 years old senior cat who has inflammation issue. We were feeding her a dry Purina HA due to suspected food alergy with a previous food. She was doing good for a while, but since she was losing her apetite and weight with diarrhea, Dr. recommended to try this instead. It smells good to me, too. We make sure the food is room temperture, and she eats very well. She has gained her weight back, and more energetic and playful!!! I'm very happy with this food! It is not too watery, but soft enough. I add tea spoon of warm water so she can be hydrated.

  • Tastes good to me!

    Our handicapped kitty just started on this new food and he seems to be really enjoying it. It is a challenge to feed him a different food from our other 8 kitties but he is enjoying this new food fine.

    I had had to board my cat, when he came back he was in a mess-diarrhea and vomiting. My Vet advised this diet, he is keeping the food down and has even put back some weight.

    One of my cats needs this RX diet and readily eats the dry food, but all three of my cats are so fussy about wet I wasn't sure how it would be received. They love it!

  • Works but cat stop eating it

    By on

    My finicky sensitive stomach cat with constant diarrhea for almost six months was given new rx for this cat food. He looked like he was wasting away. He ate this food for three days and he immediately started looking like a Tom cat, putting on weight and looking muscular, and producing finally formed stools. For some reason he stopped eating it and would walked away from it. One day he didn't eat all day, so I Try mixing tuna with it, he ate tuna around it but avoid this cat food. after two days and several cans wasted. I now just give him adult can tuna, plus his grain free dry food. Will try it again in a few weeks to see if he eats it again.

  • food for ancient cat

    By on

    I have a plus seventeen year old cat that decided he did not want to eat. A vet visit could not find a definite problem other than old age. After trying several products, this was recommended and as long as I sort of liquefy it he eats it. Seems to be doing OK at this time.

    Glad I can get RX food through Chewy. Auto ship is going to be a life saver. A little cheaper, but most of all, time is precious.

  • High Energy for cats who couldn't/wouldn't eat enough to keep from losing weight

    By on

    Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal High Energy HE Canned Cat Food is a great product for our gastro-sensitive 17-year old kitty. We mix it with water to make it easier for her to eat. When I take it from the refrigerator, as we feed her small portions throughout the day, I add some water, mix it up and stick it in the microwave for a few seconds. That takes the chill off - and - brings out the aroma/flavor further enticing her to eat. She is is responding well to this.
