Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried everything and found the "one" I purchased the RC Gastro-High Energy two tears ago by my vets recommendation and I've never looked back. You get what you pay for with RC. My cat has lost weight and has a healthy GI tract. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone who has a cat with GI issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cat loves it! When my littlest was diagnosed with IBD, the vet wanted her to start on the GI HE to help control the diarrhea. Although it hasn't helped with that aspect, it has helped her gain weight again because she LOVES the taste of this. We often have to switch her foods because she gets bored of the taste, but this is something we feed her every day and she will chow down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food by cat tolerates My cat has been on this food through a prescription from our vet for years now and it is the only type she has been able to consistently digest successfully. She is especially prone to constipation, but it is controlled with this prescription diet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seemed good but he won't eat wet food I've bought 6 cans of the GI prescription food, but unfortunately, Timmy refuses to eat it. I've tried giving it to him in a variety of ways with no success. I really wish he would eat it, he needs extra moisture in anyway possible. Suggestions?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EPI cat My cat has E.P.I. He's been on this new food for a month and is finally gaining weight and his stool is solid. I have to mix his medication in with the food and this is the first time he hasn't turned his nose up at it. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I bought this for my pet that has a weak stomach and would throw up daily and would have a hard time adjusting to any food product and ever since I switch to this particular food he never throws up anymore and is in great health!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped with Hairballs! The mystery of hairballs was a problem with my own kitty. My doctor suggested PR or HP which my cat ended up not liking. We went out on a limb and tried strictly GI HE wet and dry. It seems to have done the trick!
