MIX WITH WET FOOD: Perfect complement to Royal Canin Intense Beauty Wet Cat Food formulas

Your cat has it all: a shiny coat, a sleek physique, and a charming personality. But beauty starts within, and the right diet can make all the difference in your cat’s health—inside and out. Because skin and coat issues can range from simple to complex, you should consult your veterinarian when you see skin and coat changes.

Royal Canin Hair & Skin dry cat food is made to support cats’ sensitive skin and coat issues. This targeted and effective diet can significantly improve coat shine after 21 days of exclusive feeding.* The precisely balanced complex of nutrients, including B-vitamins, nourishes the skin to reinforce its role as a protective barrier. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids work together to promote skin health and maintain a shiny coat condition. And high-quality proteins used for their specific amino acids promote healthy hair growth while helping to prevent common issues like dandruff and dull coats. Try pairing with Royal Canin Intense Beauty wet cat food formulas for a meal your cat will love.

Has done wonders for my cat!

I started my 1 yr old cats on this food since my female has terrible skin allergies. She had bald patches on her and our Vet was unable to help her after tests and injections. She and her brother both love this food. She's short-haired and started growing her hair back and her brother has a beautiful long coat because of this food. Now I can't find it anywhere. She's starting to have skin issues again and nothing I've used in place is working. Please make this food available again! I've looked everywhere online and no one carries it.

This food saved my cats life.

In 2020 my cat was faced with multiple issues, including severe allergies and a diagnosis of Horner's Syndrome. We spent thousands at the vet trying to get her allergies under control, amid a pandemic nonetheless. My poor baby was allergic to every food option we found, and the vet ended up recommending this brand. Once switching over to this food, and getting her on a regular allergy medicine my cat completely turned around for the better!! It helps that she absolutely loves this product as well, and even gets excited when you bring the bag home. Unfortunately, here we are in 2021 and there have been shortages, and this product has been disrupted. I'm lost as to what to do, as my girl is allergic to EVERYTHING else but this! Please please please don't stop making this type, as I fear we will be back to spending thousands of dollars in vet fees to keep my girl out of anaphylaxis, multiple antibiotics and steroids!

ONLY food we feed our cats!

Ever since we rescued 2 cats from a local animal shelter in 2018, we have been faithfully feeding our beloved cats Royal Canin Hair and Skin Care Dry Cat Food. In fact, we have it on monthly delivery subscription on Amazon and sometimes at PetSmart or Petco. However, starting this month, all of our local stores as well as Amazon stopped delivering and carrying this line!! We are down to about 1/4 of our last bag and I'm besides myself!! What are we going to do?? Even during last year when we were in the midst of the Coronavirus Pandemic, we didn't feel this shortage....but now in the summer of 2021 when we are slowly getting out of the Covid-19 crisis, we are faced with Royal Canin shortage crisis! My poor cats! I do not want them to get used to other brand....What should we do? I dearly hope you can quickly bring back our FAVORITE food for our cats. Please do not discontinue this line. Our cats' coats look amazingly beautiful, shiny, and healthy since we have adopted them from the animal shelter, and we thank Royal Canin Hair and Skin Care Dry Cat Food for that!

Amazing dry cat food!

Our grey domestic shorthair has been thriving on this food for his whole 4 1/2 year life so far. His fur is shiny and supple. He gets endless compliments on his beautiful coat. We are so pleased with this amazing dry cat food!
