HEALTHY AGING: A healthy aging complex and balanced vitamins and minerals meet neutered or spayed cats’ dietary needs

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: Mature cat food helps maintain healthy weight in older fixed cats that have reduced activity levels

KIDNEY HEALTH: Specific phosphorus levels promote renal health

COMPLETE AND BALANCED: Dry cat kibble is 100% complete and balanced cat nutrition and the perfect complement to Royal Canin Appetite Control Spayed/Neutered Wet Cat Food

Does your senior cat meow for more even after they've emptied their bowl? They may not be feeling full. That’s because of a common hormonal change that happens after a cat is spayed or neutered, causing a spike in hunger and decline in energy needs. This change lasts long into their senior years, and could lead to your cat putting on excess pounds.

Royal Canin Aging Spayed / Neutered 12+ Dry Cat Food is specifically made for the unique nutritional needs of your senior cat. This formula is designed with an exclusive blend of antioxidants, including lycopene and omega-3 fatty acids, to support your beloved senior kitty as they age. Moderate levels of fat content help maintain an ideal weight. And adapted phosphorus levels help support kidney health. Try pairing with Royal Canin Appetite Control Spayed/Neutered wet cat food for a meal your cat will love.

this is great - IF you can find it

My 18 year old kitty likes this reasonably well, but it has disappeared from shelves *everywhere* at least around here. The canned 12+ is very good too - she'll eat that but won't touch the urinary health stuff; and she's having some kidney issues as is common in older cats, but this is the best we can do. If we can find it. C'mon - get it out there!!

Cats love this food.

One of my cats had a urinary blockage and underwent surgery. Since then he is required to eat the special diet cat food so he drinks more water and the blockage doesn’t repeat. We have other cats and they eat it too since we have a self feeder. I have mixed other Urinary diet cats foods with the Royal Canin and it’s funny to watch them pick out the royal canin kibbles. They love this food! It gets pricey to feed all of them straight royal canin (that’s why I mix) but it’s their clear choice!!

I acquired a rescue cat last year. After 52 years if horses I have my first kitty. I adore her. I took her to a vet who was recommended to me and he suggested Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal food. Lily has thrived on it. She has gained 1.5 lbs and her coat is like mink! She loves it and eats is all. I strongly suggest you look into it.
