Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Feline Glycobalance ® dry cat food 4.4 lb bag is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Madison's choice food! Madison is 15 yrs old and being diabetic doesn't have many choices when it comes to his food but when I introduced him to yours he acted as if he was given a treat and prefers it over his other food.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay Got this from my vet (for free after a miscommunication). My cat liked it well enough, but after seeing how much it costs, I will not be buying it. I can't be paying $25+ for a 4.4 lb bag of food. It needs to be more affordable, prescription or no. If my cat actually does have diabetes I will have to find a "regular" type of cat food for him. :-\ Money doesn't magically fall out of the sky just because people have sick pets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality After years of using another prescription diabetic cat food from another major supplier I made the switch to Royal Canin upon recommendation of a friend to “stop feeding the cardboard”. I researched various brands of diabetic cat food and found this to be the most appealing. Making the change was also recommended by my Vetinarian. Very quickly I note improvements to the softness of my two “boys” coats and general activity improvements. I’d highly recommmend Royal Canin for anyone looking for better food options while still remaining cost effective.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bigger Bag Required Great quality food, but overshadowed by the greed of Royal Canin. It is super silly to not sell this in a bigger bag. I wish i didnt have to buy it at all. These guys are making a fortune by taking advantage of people with diabetic cats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need bigger bag! This food is amazing! My diabetic cats loves it and he is very picky, we are in the process of getting him off insulin and that's great. My only issue is like everyone else said, this is only available in a 4 pound bag which doesn't get me through a month. I work at a vet also and while this food works is discouraging to clients that there isnt bigger sizes available. PLEASE make it in a bigger size!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Taste Jack "The Cat," became Diabetic about 20 months ago, and he is a big boy of 21 lbs. and is approximately 15 years old. I attempted to provide Ole Jack a diet of this Prescribed Diabetic Prescription Food per his Doctors' strong recommendations. The major problem was that (for whatever reason) Jack absolutely Will Not eat Any Type of Dry Food that is a deep dark color - no matter how you approach attempting to coerce him to eat it? Unfortunately, All Prescription Dry Foods for Diabetic Cats are Very Dark in color?! Now, Jack will eat most variety of (Dry) foods, as long as they are a lighter color i.e., beige or light brown?? His Prescription SO dry food for his History of Urinary Infections is a light brown/beige color, and he will eat it like there is no tomorrow?! Now, go figure?!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Cats Love This Food! My ten year old cat was diagnosed with a severe case of diabetes in February of 2018, which was followed by neuropathy in his hind legs. It was necessary to put him on a prescription diabetic food to help get him regulated. He is a very picky eater and will not eat moist food. My veterinary prescribed this dry food diabetic product and he loves it. I am so happy he will eat it. With Lantus injections and this food, his blood sugars have stabilized, his neuropathy has resolved and he is doing great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insulin requirement dropped 50% Food is very palatable. Insulin requirement in my diabetic cat dropped from 8u twice a day to 4u twice a day. I wish it was less expensive and came in a larger size. Also the bag closure should be better at this price point as it often fails to work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great food but I need a bigger bag I have two of my four cats on different Vet diets. I need a bigger bag of this as we go through it so fast as one of the other cats is always sneaking it. Please! Please make it in a 17 lb bag and help me with my budget!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO EXPENSIVE My cat is diabetic and he has been eating your dry food for about a month. Please make it in bigger bags or lower the price. I will go bankrupt between paying for his food and insulin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cats have been eating this for 2 years! I have 3 cats, but only one is diabetic. I feed this food to all 3, and they all seem to really like it. When my kitty was first diagnosed, I tried the only other brand available in my area, and for 3 weeks, my kitties vomited at least once a day. It was awful. We haven't had any problems whatsoever with the Riyal Canin food, and I am so grateful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a diabetic kitty! My girl had been receiving insulin on a sliding scale for almost 2 years when my new vet recommended switching to Royal Canin Glycobalance from another diabetic food. She went into remission within the first year on this food. She loved the food and not having to get an injection anymore! The pieces are a bit big, so keep that in mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product Started using this a few months ago due to the fact that one of our three cats has diabetes that was pretty much "out of control"!! After using this product for 6 weeks my cat's sugar went down to 60!!!! He's doing great!! My other two cats love the food as well. I'm so glad my vet recommended this cat food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cats love it My cat was diagnosed with Diabetes a few months ago and this was his recommended diet change, he absolutely loves it and so does his sister who now refuses to eat anything else. Only reason in dissatisfied is because you only have an 4.4lb bag and I'm feeding two 15lb plus cats on it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is Working Great! My Kahlie is overweight and our vet prescibed this as a way to lose some of the excess weight. Kahlie went to the vet again this weekend and has lost 4 lbs. to date. The vet is very pleased and Kahlie seems to have more energy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Graet for Diabetic Cat! We have been feeding this formula to our diabetic cat for years. She really loves it and we can be sure we're doing our best to help control her blood sugar. The other cats are so jealous that they lick her empty bowl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bigger bag needed I’ve been buying this food for my cat for over 5 years. Yes, it has helped him greatly, however, you need to sell it in BIGGER BAGS! 4.4 lbs. is nothing. Lasts for a week. Why don’t you sell it in bigger bags???
