Royal Canin® Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal Adult Cat Food
Excellent product-changed my cat's life
My 4 year old cat has been suffering from chronic constipation for about a year and a half. We have had to have him evacuated twice, is medicated, and even went to a specialist who couldn't find the cause. A friend recommended this food and I asked my vet if we could give it a try. He was willing, and oh what a difference! We just went to the vet for a check-up and his colon is clear for the first time in over a year. He is still taking his medication, but honestly, I feel like he could probably ween off of it in the future. Linus is very picky about his food, and he loves this! I have no problems with him eating it, and he is going to the bathroom regularly. Thank you, Royal Canin for making this "miracle" food!

The best food..please make a larger size!!!!
My vet recommend this food for my cat who has Mega Colon. He was only able to eat wet food with lots of Miralax or else he ends up at the hospital. Anyway, I tried this food in small amounts with his regular diet and was I ever surprised! This is the first food he has ever been able to tolerate and he is thrilled. He used to cry since he yearned for dry food all the time.
The food tastes so good to my cats that they all fight to eat it too, so I have changed their dry food to this one.
It is a wonderful food and I think it is even helping my overweight cat lose some inches, with the high fiber content, and has helped my other cat with her loose bowel.
In the past, it was so hard to meet all my cat's requirements with one food, but this one has worked 100%. They do eat wet food too.
Royal Canin...PLEASE MAKE A LARGER SIZE OF THIS FANTASTIC FOOD!!!

I have a cat that has been suffering with Megacolon/constipation for the last 5-6 years. He's a 12 year old, we believe Maine Coon or least partially Maine Coon. We had been taking him to a vet that I honestly think didn't know what was wrong with him and kept having to get enema's, it was horribly stressful on the cat and on us as well as extremely costly! We recently switched vets, they diagnosed a mild case of Megacolon and put him on this food as well as 2 medications (Lactulose & Cisapride). We've since stopped the medication because the food alone is doing the trick, he's been on this for about 12 weeks now and he hasn't had any issues with being able to go. My cat loves the taste as well and he's a very picky eater. He won't eat wet food (except to lick the jelly off) and he's even picky on treats - only likes the crunchy kind not the soft kind. The only issue we've had is that we have to now feed him in a separate room because our other 2 cats like the smell of his food much better. The food is more costly because it's prescription, but it's totally worth it - we could buy 2 years worth for how much we had already spent at the vet before March.

Works great for cat chronic constipation!
We had spent A LOT of money at the vet's office due to our cat having chronic constipation. Not to mention the fight every night to give him a laxative! The vet recommended the Royal Canin, our cat actually liked it and changed over with no problems! He can now go to the bathroom without pain and laxatives. I wasn't sure if he would change food easily because he had eaten the same food for 11 years. I would highly recommend this to any cat owner whose cat is suffering from constipation on a regular basis. It may cost a little more, but the benefits definitely outweigh the cost!!
