Satisfies a spayed or neutered cat's increasing appetite

Contains a high level of fibers to help cats feel more full

Supports healthy metabolism and helps manage weight with an optimal amount of L-carnitine

Perfect complement to Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered wet cat food formulas

Does your 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. This change causes a spike in hunger and decline in energy needs, which could lead to your cat putting on excess pounds.

Royal Canin Appetite Control Spayed/Neutered dry cat food is specifically tailored for the unique nutritional needs of your adult cat (and is the perfect transition from Royal Canin Kitten Spayed/Neutered cat food). This complete and balanced formula is designed to help satisfy a cat’s increased appetite that can occur after surgery. High levels of fibers give your cat the feeling of fullness and help reduce the risk of overeating. Moderate fat levels help limit excess weight gain. And L-carnitine ensures their metabolism works hard, burning through calories and helping your cat stay at a healthy weight. Try pairing with Royal Canin Appetite Control Spayed/Neutered wet cat food for a meal your cat will love.

I have a male who needs a high fiber diet and this is helping him so much. Both my cats are picky eaters and they love this food so much.

Best Food Ever!

Have been using this food for a few years. Our cats absolutely love it! I walk in the house and they literally climb in the bag when I open it. Has been great for the disgestive system and coats!

Great Food!

My cat absolutely loves this food and she's maintaining her weight really well on it too. And I'm a veterinarian so I appreciate the high standards that Royal Canin maintains with their food. Keep up the good work guys!

Our two cats love it!

We have two cats that are very active in the house now that we are feeding them this food. They are controlling their weight now an do not eat more than they need to! We have a little trick that we use about a teaspoon of olive oil in their food that is good for their coat and they have not had hairballs for months now! Highly recommend this food for indoor cats they tend to eat too much!

Excellent Diet

I’ve been feeding this diet to my cat for a couple of years. It’s helped him stay at a perfect body condition. He has a sensitive stomach and he tolerates it very well. Highly recommend.

Cat vomit it

I bought from chewy and this keeps causing my two cats to vomit. They switched from Royal Canin kitten spay neuter to this and this one causes them to keep vomiting for days.
