Royal Canin knows that what makes your American Shorthair cat magnificent is in the details. These affectionate, easygoing cats come in an array of gorgeous colors and love a good play session as much as they love a good nap. It takes the right diet to support digestive issues, keep them at a healthy weight, and maintain their signature coat’s luster and shine.

That’s why Royal Canin created American Shorthair dry cat food. This tailor-made and exclusive breed-specific diet helps ensure your American Shorthair cat stays their most magnificent self. The right balance of fiber, fats, and proteins helps control weight gain. Highly digestible proteins and prebiotics promote healthy digestion. Essential nutrients like amino acids, vitamins, and omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids give their coat a luxurious shine. And the crescent-shaped cat kibble is specially designed for your American Shorthair’s shortened muzzle to encourage chewing and help support good oral health. Mix in or complement with Royal Canin Intense Beauty wet food for a meal that’s sure to please.

Great health

I have had my cat, with mega-colon, on this food from the beginning of production. It has kept him going for 6 years. It is so great with their digestion I have put all 13 cats on it. It really helps with my older cats that were having problems pooping. All of my cats like the taste of it.

my Cat is fairly picky when it comes to dry cat food, so I'm pleased that she will eat the R.C. American Shorthair Adult Dry Cat Food.

Best Food

I absolutely love Royal Canin cat food. My cat's coat is much silkier and smoother than it ever has been. I never thought that their food would make that much of a difference. I've tried other higher priced foods and they did not work as well, some of which my cats wouldn't even eat. When I have had kittens in the house, I always feed them the Baby Cat formula and just keep changing to the appropriate type of Royal Canin for their age.
