Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Feline Gastrointestinal Moderate Calorie dry cat food 7.7 lb bag is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more upset kitty tummy My 11 year old cat Fred was starting to vomit everyday and was diagnosed with IBD. The poor guy was feeling miserable. I did some research and decided with my vet's approval to try him on this food. It took a few weeks for his stomach to settle down, but now he has stopped vomiting and is feeling so much better. Another great thing about this food is the s/o complex. Fred also has urinary issues so it is great that one food can address both his issues. I have all my cats on this and they all love it. Since they are all neutered male cats, I don't have to worry about weight gain, urinary issues or upset tummies. It is a wonderful food and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fluffy's tummy is better....... I was at my wit's end. I had tried several different kinds of dry cat food claiming for sensitive stomach but now of those were working. The man at the pet store recommended Royal Canin GI and I must say she has not vomited once. I am so glad because she was obviously losing weight being an indoor kitty. I will continue to use yhe finest Canin food for my kitty because she deserves Royalty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helped with my cat's pancreatitis My cat has chronic renal failure and occasional flare-ups of pancreatitis. He suddenly began vomiting and had terrible diarrhea and after three weeks of various treatments from the vet and no improvement, they diagnosed my cat with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and suggested a GI-specific diet. Within a week of switching to this formula, my cat's condition improved and he seems to be tolerant of the new prescription diet. We're trying to manage both conditions since they require very different diets, with Royal Canin products since we prefer it to other prescription food brands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Caleb has good poops!!!!!! Caleb was a stray that we took in and had problems with diarrhea. Our veterinarian tried several medications that worked for a couple days but then we were back to the same problem. The doctor suggested that we try this food and we are so happy we did. Caleb has very good bowel movements now. We actually use this food for several cats now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two diets in ONE! I purchase this diet for mainly 1 cat (all 3 love it!) She started on the RC Urinary SO due to have a TON of crystals in her bladder! The SO did its job BEAUTIFULLY!!! Thus all 3 kitties were on that diet too! Now turn the clock a year later and she suddenly is OVERLY sensitive to SOMETHING in her diet! YIKES! It was so severe we were unsure if this were the dreaded "C" (cancer) word showing it's head OR a sudden food sensitivity! So - we moved them all to Hypoallergenic! Which WORKED! However - VERY expensive for 3 cats! We tried - the moderate calorie gastrointestinal - and VOILA! A diet that works for all of her many problems! This food keeps her "belly" happy AND her bladder "happy"!!! Thank you Royal Canin!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My middle aged cat loves this food! We were recommended this product to help our cats digestive problems. I was worried I would have to mix with kitten chow, which he loves, to get him to eat it but he started eating it as soon as I put it in his bowl. Has really helped with his health problems also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CatLovesFood! My oldest cat (now 10) has been on the Moderate Calorie for a few years now and she now and has been well ever since. I did get a new cat (he is now 2) and he now is on the same food and loves it also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this food My cats (all 4 of them) have been on this for years now. They don't puke it up like all other food. Their poop doesn't stink much either. They also love it (still.) What more could I ask!
