  • Fat Cats Love This

    By on

    Great product, both wet and dry. Difficult to get all the cats to eat one food and this one seems to make everybody happy, except of course the diabetic cat who has to have Royal Canin Glycobalance and some of the older ones who are on urinary SO.

  • Great low fat food

    By on

    One of my cats was diagnosed with Pancreatitis so she had to go on a low day don't because that's gentler on the stomach and digestion. She enjoys the food and hasn't had any issues.

  • Chewy very concerned about my kitty

    By on

    Ran out of prescription kitty food. Vet took too long in signing rx to be faxed. My kitty, Mia, would not eat substitute, threw up. Would not eat chicken and rice. Chewy came to rescue. Received food next day. Mia was so happy and immediately ate again. Now, I have scheduled delivery from Chewy. Thank you Chewy for wonderful customer service.

  • Good product

    By on

    One cat has a sensitive stomach and its litter mate has occasional mild pancreatitis. This so far seems to be the only dry food they can both eat without regular digestive problems. This was also the best price around for this item.

  • They Love It!!

    By on

    My cats were on a different prescription kibble which the younger cat seemed to be having a problem with. We switched to this since my older cat has gained weight and has urinary issues. The cats didn't miss a trick when I switched them to the Royal Canin. Only complaint is it doesn't come in a larger bag:(

  • Helped with My kitty’s digestion issues

    By on

    My kitty had been struggling with vomiting and diarrhea for months. At the same time He also had been licking all his fur all off. We had many tests done, medication and ultrasounds which all turned up nothing. The vet had us try science diet which didn’t help cause he wouldn’t touch it. However with royal canin my kitty tummy has gotten better and his coat has grown back. He is now without medication. He loves the dry food more than the wet version but will eat both.
