Kitten Dry Cat Food

Kitten Dry cat food is formulated for the second stage of kittenhood (between 4 months and 1 year)

The benefits

  • Small kibble texture is easy to chew: perfect for a kitten’s mouth and emerging teeth
  • An innovative combination of highly digestible proteins, fibers, and prebiotics helps aid older kittens’ developing digestive systems
  • Delivers a mix of proteins, minerals, and vitamins to meet the high-energy needs of this stage in a cat’s growth

Product description

By the time a kitten gets to be around 4 months old, their growth rate slows, but their activity levels skyrocket. With intensifying energy levels, developing bones, growing muscles, and emerging teeth, older kittens need a different kind of nutrition than a younger baby cat.

Royal Canin Kitten Dry Food gives your kitten a healthy start with nutritional precision: An innovative mix of highly digestible proteins, vitamins, and other essential minerals support their maturing digestive system and keeps their growing bodies strong. And an exclusive blend of antioxidants supports their developing immune system. Transitioning from Royal Canin Mother & Babycat wet and dry formulas is easy: the small, easy-to-chew kibble made specifically for kittens’ mouths.

Excellent quality!

My vet recommended this brand and I have never looked back. My kitten gulps it down and loves it. I use both wet and dry food combined and my kitten has the softest and healthiest coat and overall general health. I highly recommend this product

Kitten Loves it and Keeps her Healthy

I have used the #33 dry food for my older cat per Vet's advice to stop throwing up and it worked. When I looked for kitten food for my new Siamese kitten it was my first choice. The kitten is growing well and healthy.

Great except kibbles are too small for lg kittens

I have a male Maine coon kitten. He is big and gorgeous. The kitten diet looks to be working well for him except the kibbles are for tiny kitten mouths. My boy is 7 months and nearly 11 pounds so far. He doesn’t chew the kibbles. They are too small. Therefore, he doesn’t get the teeth-cleaning benefits of dry food. His breath got pretty stinky before I started brushing his teeth and giving him dental treats (MC can be prone to dental issues). I’d love bigger kibbles of the kitten food since he will be on it another 5 months.

My kittens Favorite Food

I love this food I am making the transition to dry adult food for the now adult kitten and my older cat is on it. I think it keeps them from throwing up so much. The seem to love the taste and are always ready for meal time.

Great cat food!

I have used this for my sphynx cat the entire time I’ve had him and he loves this food! He is very sensitive so finding a food that has worked for him is a life saver!

Cat loves it!

We have been feeding our cat the Royal Canin Feline Health Nutrition Kitten dry cat food since she was a kitten. She loves it and it keeps her from having any digestive issues.

Hundreds of Foster Kittens Prefer

I work at the local animal shelter and foster a lot of kittens. I use Royal Canin kitten because I found almost all my kittens prefer it over other brands, the size is perfect for small kittens and it softens well with water for the younger ones and I like the consistent quality.
