Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Feline Health Nutrition™ Sensitive Digestion dry cat food is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a great food Purchased this type of food for our cats. We have 36 cats, as the majority have been abandoned in my Animal Hospital or strays around my hospital. We gradually transitioned the food over a span of about 10 days and since day 1, the cats were regurgitating their food. About 10-15 minutes after they eat they regurgitate all their food, all 36 cats. It has gotten so bad that we had to switch to a different food because they were all loosing weight. We carry RC food in our clinic and I feed it to my dogs personally, and have never had an issue with the dog food. If this food is supposed to be sensitive digestion, I don't see why the cats are regurgitating it. I could understand if it were 1 or 2 cats regurgitating the food, but not all 36 of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my kitties I got both my kitties from an animal shelter and was unsure which RC diet to feed them as at my clinic we have so many different variety's. One of our doctor's recommended the Special 33, which is now the sensitive digestion. My cats both always have normal stools and it tides them over for 12 hours (they get 1/4 C twice daily)! Highly recommend any RC diet

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Price Increase and Updated Name of Product AGAIN! I wish you would stop renaming this product. I see no point to it and just adds confusion when I go to buy it. Also large increase in price $43 for a 7 lbs bag now - this is insane and I am not happy about it. This company has no loyalty program or coupons either. Man I wish my cats would eat something else - I would change in a minute

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats are healthier on this. First started using Special 33 when vet put my older MC on it due to chronic digestive issues. By the time the bag was finished he was almost a different cat. Meanwhile you 1 yo MC/DLH started turning his nose up at his commercial chow in favor of Special 33. So, I have just left them both on it.They don't have to eat as much, they don't poop as much and when they do, it doesn't stink up the place. They are both in excellent health. Vet says it is still ok to feed both cats. I wouldn't want to change unless I needed to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my cat's life Two years ago my cat Ollie almost died from acute pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease. My vet and I could not get him to take food voluntarily for almost two weeks. Then I offered Special 33 dry. He loved this food, and today he is wonderfully healthy . My other 14 year old cat and my 20 year old cat also love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Did The Trick Our vet recommended Royal Canin #33 for our Rag Doll cat (Squirt) because of frequent vomiting his food. The vet said Squirt had a sensitive tummy and this food should help to alleviate this problem. Well, it did the trick and Squirt seldom vomits except for the occasional hairball (YUK!) and since switching foods he has added some weight as well ! Our other Rag Doll (Pepsi) also seems to thrive on it even though he no vomiting issue (except the occasional hairball..YUK!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my finicky kitty will eat! My Lucy is a finicky eater since the moment she was weaned from her mom. Most brands caused her to have an upset stomach. We finally found the sensitive stomach blend and she loves it! Lucy went from being slightly underweight as a yearling to a now 20-pound old lady. Eight years of Royal Canin has been very good to her. Our vet remarked at her remarkably good health at her last checkup. It's all because we care to feed her the best product on the market

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The very best cat food on the planet I adopted a kitten that showed up ar my house and suspect he had been relocated due to his G.I. problems otherwise known as very very very very bad smelling poo and soft. The smell was horrible and he made a terrible mess. I tried many brands, nothing work but tried this cat food and MAJIC. No more odirs and the consistancy is good. We were not going to keep Horton but he is a family member and want to maje sure his dietary needs are always met.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hopefully will help with loose stools One of my cats has had loose, smelly stools and the vets cannot find why. She was rescued as a very young kitten that had to be dropper fed. I decided to see if there was any dry food that would be able to help firm up her stools and decrease the horrible odor. Since I've been feeding her the Special 33, the odor has been less and there is more firmness to her stools. I hope as she is on this food, it will get even better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cats! Even better for owners! We've used Royal Canin Special for our 3 cats for quite a few years now. Their demeanor is better, their coats are healthy, shiny and soft, and they have minimal hairball issues, despite one of our cats being a longer-haired calico. They really enjoy the food and give us no issues at mealtime. Their nutrition and health is always really complimented by the vet. We won't ever use another type of food to feed our cats/kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food I bought this food about two months ago recommend by my vet (with hesitation I did) I had tried several brands for my two cats with sensitive stomachs hated waking up to vomit every morning afternoon evening oh I forgot about the $500.00 vet bill for Lizzy because she was the one with the most sensitivity they could find nothing wrong so far it has worked they do have a occasionally mishap but so far good thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problems With Stomach We adopted a kitty and were told she had digestive flares and that she did best on sensitive stomach formulas. She also shed A LOT of fur...more than I've ever seen a cat shed! We chose Royal Canin Sensitive Digestion and not only did she never have a stomach problem for us, her fur had improved so much! I would say it reduced her shedding to about half of what it previously was, and her coat was so soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally something they all eat I bought a bag to try for a 15 year old cat with constant diarrhea and vomiting. She has stopped vomiting to some degree and the diarrhea really has not stopped but she is eating this and seems to like it. She only weighs 5 lbs so getting some food down her is great. I have a 17 and 14 year old cat also and they both like the taste of this also. I am pleased with this, just wish the price was not so high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Special 33 My cats love it! When I changed over to Royal Canin 33 my cats stopped throwing up. Due to being on disability after a double transplant I tried cutting corners and going back to another commercial brand that was less expensive and as soon as i did, both cats starting throwing up again. Just no doubt about the quality of Special 33. I just wish it was easier to afford as I know many other cat owners would also switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Food by Far! Abyssinian cats tend to have sensitive digestion, and our Gryffindor frequently had problems until we started feeding him Royal Canin. First of all, he loves it! He was a fussy eater before. Secondly, no more digestive issues! Also, much to our surprise and delight, his fur got shinier and healthier looking and he has better muscle tone! Great food for great health. Royal Canin for us from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just smell the difference! This food will please the most finicky cat! The smell and the texture is unlike any other DRY cat food - it is expensive, but even if you couldn't afford it all of the time - try mixing it in with your regular dry cat food - I did that anyway at first, so as not to do a complete change at once, which you are not supposed to do, but gradually - then just this food by itself...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 7 cats LOVE THIS I have 2 cats with very sensitive stomachs. Since giving this food a try, there has been no more vomiting. What's even better is that the other 5 cats love this food as well. They will not eat anything else. This is so palatable to them and they are all doing fantastic on it. There is no more smell to their waste either. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this food. Money well spent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome food! I adopted my cat from a shelter 5 years ago. When I brought him home he had bad diarrhea. A friend suggested I try Royal Canin Special 33 so I did. He has now been on Royal Canin for 5 years and he is completely better. I volunteer at the shelter that I adopted him from. We now also use Royal Canin Special 33 there too and have had great success with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We won't buy anything else! We first bought this food when one of our 3 cats developed gastritis. It is impossible to separate feeding among the 3..... so they all eat it. Because of the cost we slowly tried to switch to IAMS once things had cleared up, but he had immediate GI issues again. Now they are back on Royal Canin 33 and will stay on it forever!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO EAT!!! I have had my cat on this for about a year.. As she has a sensitive stomach and was throwing up a lot.. Since she has been on this formula the throw up is few and far between she loves Royal Canin and so do I.. I also blend her food with Royal Canin Mature / Senior and she has had a great decrease in throwing up..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome food for so many issues I have been using this product for many years and I always go back to it if I ever decide to try another Royal Canin feline product. It keeps my cats' coats very silky and strong an d it also greatly helps to keep away any digestive issues. I don't know what I would do if this product were no longer available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Change from Special 33 to Sensitice Digestion My cats did great on the Special 33 diet but when it changed to Sensitive Digestion, many of my cats started vomiting and are continuing to do so. They tell me there was no change in diet. I am so frustrated as my cats did well and rarely vomited on the Special 33 and now I do not know what food to change to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cat's really love The breeder of our new abyssinian kitten recommended this food after he outgrew the kitten food. We decided to change our older abyssinian onto this as well. Both are doing very well. Both have excellent coats and high activity levels. The younger cat has managed to maintain good weight despite his activity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We found our beautiful Tuxedo cat wandering in a parking lot on a 10 degree day. He had terribly loose stools among other problems. We found this food within a week of getting him and he has not had a problem since. The only problem is his two brother and one sister cat love it and sneak some all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have been breeding Ragdolls for over 16 years and have been using and recommending Royal Canin for 14 years. I feed my cats Royal Canin Special and my cats have done wonderfully. I have 15 and 16 year olds that you would think are 6 or 7 years old. I recommend Royal Canin to all my kitten families.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always good! I have 2 ragdoll kitties, one who is prone to IBD and hairballs. The kitties have been eating Royal Canin 33 for years and still like it. The IBD kitty Rocky seems to do best on this food, his IBD is minimal and both kitties are always healthy....thank God and Royal Canin for good food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food I have been using Royal Canin Special 33 for about a year now and my cat is doing very well. He seems to enjoy this dry food greatly and his sensitive stomach does extremely well. For his moist food, we use Royal Canin Sensitive Stomach. Between the two of them, my kitty is thriving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Explains what the food is for One of our cats has a VERY sensitive stomach. He was on another brand of food, but our other cats' hair didn't look good. Someone told us about this food, and that Royal Canine treats the whole cat from the inside out. It works. No upset stomach, hair looks great, everyone is happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more icky stuff to step in! Finally a food that my sensitive cat will keep down! No more waking up to icky surprises underfoot, or having to wash my comforter because he gorged himself and tossed it all on my bed. My cat has never looked so good either. His coat is shiny and he seems to have more energy.
