Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats LOVE this stuff! One of my cats was put on RC Calorie Control dry, by her vet, years ago to combat severe IBS. Not only has it worked (!!!) but ALL of my cats LOVE it - always eating it before their other options (I also give them 2 varieties of Blue Buffalo). I let them free feed dry food and have to restock this roughly every week. Expensive but worth it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Getting my cat back in shape. I started mixing this food with the Royal Canin food with duck to try to cut down on the calories that she is consuming. So far, so good. She loves the taste of both foods and is losing weight. In fact, Royal Canin has been her food since I first received her as a kitten. She will not eat anything else now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works! I started 2 of my overweight kitties on this diet about 3 months ago. They both love it and it keeps them from begging for more... And there's already a little reduction in weight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No budgey kitties I was using another premium brand but switched due to too many recalls. I have inside kitties so I need to watch their weight. I tried another premium brand and they HATED it. Would not touch it and literally let it sit in the bowl. They took to Royal Canin immediately! Even better I noticed the litter box doesn't smell as bad a it used to. SO now i have happy and healthy kitties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for health we thought we were gonna have to put our preciouis Rascal down because she was bleeding when she peed and turned out she had stones that could come out through proper eating and without surgery. Although it is expesive and makes our budget a bit tighter, it is worth it , almost two years later she is still with us thank our Vet for this wonderful lease on life with Royal Canine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cats eat this! My cats are extremely finicky eaters. They do not take to a change of food lightly, even turning up their nose at wet food. They have a brand they prefer, and will walk away from their bowls and go hungry if the food isn't what they expect. Surprise! They actually will eat this! And it's good to know they are getting proper nutrition and not eating "feline junk food!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works My cat was prescribed this product 6 years ago because he was very overweight. He has been on this continued diet ever since and is currently maintaining a normal weight. He eats the Dry Calorie Control for breakfast & lunch and I also feed him the Calorie Control Canned Food at dinner. This has been a perfect treatment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats love it! One of my cats was recently diagnosed with hypertriglyceridemia, and part of the treatment is changing to reduced calorie food. I have changed all my personal cats to Royal Canin Calorie Control. It has helped all my cats! The one who has the disorder now has numbers at or below the normal range!
