About Royal Canin Veterinary Diets - Dermatological Line

Can Food Help My Itchy Cat?

Can Food Help My Itchy Cat?

Scratching, biting and rubbing are signs of what is happening under your cat's coat. Skin issues in cats can be due to food sensitivities.

About Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities are reactions to normally harmless proteins in the diet and can occur with a cat of any age. A food sensitivity is determined by a food elimination trial which is performed under the supervision of a veterinarian. Your veterinarian may choose a diet that contains hydrolyzed proteins (ones that have already been partially broken down) or novel proteins (ones that your pet is unlikely to have been exposed to).

About Food Sensitivities

Signs of Food Sensitivity

Sensitivities to the proteins in your cat's food or environmental irritants can result in a variety of clinical signs and only your veterinarian can determine if a veterinary-exclusive diet is appropriate for your pet. If a diet change is recommended, for best results, it is very important to feed only that food while strictly adhering to your veterinarian's feeding directions.

Find the Right Royal Canin Diet for Your Cat

We have a broad-range of Dermatologic formulas for pets with food sensitives and skin issues. Talk to your veterinarian about the right formula for your pet.

  • I'm torn on this

    By on

    My cat had to eat this food according to the vet, and there are very limited options for this type of food. However, the general quality of the food isn't up to par with what my cats eat now, and the one who supposedly had to eat this food for his stomach has actually been doing much better on regular food that's of a higher ingredient quality. I'm torn on what to say to other people though, because if you have a cat with digestion issues it can be nerve-wracking trying different things to see if kitty can keep them down. If possible I would recommend trying something else.

  • Siamese Cat with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, possibly lymphoma

    By on

    My 7 year old Siamese cat, Cameron, had an abdominal ultrasound that revealed he was developing IBS and possibly lymphoma. Due to his now-sensitive GI tract, the vet advised me to slowly transition him to a hydrolyzed protein diet such as Royal Canin HP and Hills Z/D. Since December 2017, I've been feeding Cameron both HP and Z/D and he seems to be tolerating both well. Yesterday, the vet examined him and said he was out of the danger zone and on the road to recovery. I believe that HP, Z/D and lots of care and love contributed to Cameron's improved health. He will need to stay on the hydrolyzed protein diet for life.

  • Prescription food

    By on

    Our cat was at first diagnosed with IBD and the vet gave us a prescription for a special diet food. We purchased the first bag of prescription food at a local pet store. When we needed to purchase the food again, we checked Chewy. The cost was substantially less and included free shipping, so we ordered a 17lb bag. The order, with other items included, arrived timely and exactly as ordered.

  • Brand new food, too soon to review

    By on

    I just started using this new cat food so it is too soon to tell. I will say my cat liked it immediately which is most unusual for this kitty and most kitties I've had. I'm still giving her wet cat food during the transition period. I'll know more in a few weeks.

  • Good Price

    By on

    We have to buy this food due to our cat’s allergies. Bottom line, she likes it and it works. This stuff is very expensive anywhere you buy it, but chewy’s price is the lowest I have found. The auto ship option is also very convenient, as the nearest pet store that carries this (since a prescription is needed) is quite a distance from where we live.

  • Goggle this...is soy good for my cat? all i see is no it is not.

    By on

    I wonder why vets sell dry food with soy as #3 ingredient? Ive done lots of research on soy. I recommend you check out soy as an antinutrient. Ive been on high soy in my life so have first hand experience for sure.

  • It seems to work!

    By on

    After trying many dried foods for my poor allergic cat, and getting sent to a specialist for treatment, this food seems to be doing the job. Dippity the cat is no longer scratching herself ALL the time, and is apparently on the mend. Thank you to Royal Canin for making this food. Just wish is were a bit less expensive, but it's less expensive through Chewy than anywhere else I can find!

  • My Cat Likes It!

    By on

    Had to put my cat on this food because she was having allergic reaction to something and itching a lot. So far so good. Just started her on it so not sure it's going to solve her problem yet. She likes the food which is most important to her. It's a prescription food so our vet had to OK the purchase first but all of that was done via email to the vet and I had the food in 2 or 3 days from the time I ordered it. Chewy.com price was the best I could find on the sites I checked. Some didn't even carry the prescription version of the food.

  • Great dry food for belly issues

    By on

    This has worked well for our cat. He was prescribed this as a kitten with gi issues but we have kept him on for almost 2 years. We also feel like it helps with less smelly poops.
