Brushing Effect
The texture and shape of the kibble produce a gentle abrasive effect on the teeth during chewing. This mechanical action provides a brushing effect to reduce the accumulation of dental plaque and calculus.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Veterinary Care Nutrition™ Feline Dental dry cat food is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My older cat was starting to show signs off needing her teeth and gums cleaned. My vet suggested this product to mix in with her other Royal Canin dry food. It worked wonders and she loved it. My other male cat about the same age just started eating out of her bowl. They both have clean teeth and gums and are being spared the being put "under" to have a dental cleaning done. They are happy and I'm thrilled that I don't have to put them through an expensive cleaning. Nor do I have to risk put them through anesthia and a day at the vet's office.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but messy This food only appeals to 2 of my 6 cats (and the ones I bought it for to treat their plaque do not like it). However, for the cats that do like it, it's an easy way to keep their teeth healthy. My two complaints are the price point, as well as the size of the kibble. It's quite large for a cat, so one of my cats bites it into smaller chunks, which leaves to crumbs all over the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Preventive Care! I’ve used this food since having some dental issues with my oldest cat. I have switched all my cats to RC dental now and it has done wonders to for their teeth. My 5 year old cat who has been on the dental diet since turning one has perfect teeth and hasn’t needed a dental cleaning yet. I work at a vet clinic and highly recommend this diet for any adult cats diet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats love it The vet wanted me to put them on the dental formula and I always mix when I'm adjusting to a new food. Within a very short time they wouldn't touch their old food (& it was very good food). I'd have half a bowl of the old food, none of the Royal Canin & they would look at me as if I was trying to starve them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it! When I adopted my barn cat I was advised to switch her to dental diet if I could - well - big surprise ! She immediately began picking it out to eat first before the food she had been eating well. I don't know how her teeth are doing yet but she yowls at me to get a hurry on at mealtime!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food, helps with dental and urinary health! I've been feeding my cats this for over 10 years now. I tried to switch them at one point to another brand's equivalent and they hated it and it caused GI problems! They eat this well, eat slowly because they have to chew and it helps keep my urine problem kitty's urine under control!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Prescription Dental Diet There Is! My cat absolutely loves this diet! Her teeth are still clean two years after her last dental cleaning on this diet and it covers her urinary issues with the S/O index. I've tried all the prescription dental diets and this one is hands down the best one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats love the taste! My cat loves this food. She's not too picky but she readily eats this kibble and the added benefit of dental health is a bonus. We started offering it as "treats" in the vet clinic I work at and a large majority of cats love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 year old cat was diagnosed with early gingivitis during his routine exam, so the Vet suggested the dental diet. After just a few months, the red gums have gone away and his teeth look great! He loves the taste, too!
