X-shaped kibble texture makes it easy to grasp and chew, perfect for a kitten’s small mouth and emerging teeth

Made with an adapted level of fat to limit post-procedure weight gain, and optimal levels of protein, calcium, and phosphorus to support a growing kitten

Delivers a mix of proteins, minerals, and vitamins to meet the high-energy needs of this stage in a cat’s growth

Spaying or neutering leaves a lasting impact on a young kitten’s health and weight. Hormone changes lessen energy needs, while giving them a giant appetite. This risky combo means it can be hard to control their weight gain. That’s why it’s critical to give your kitten the right diet from the start.
Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered Dry Kitten Food contains a precise blend of essential nutrients your kitten needs after surgery to keep a healthy body weight and growth rate. With optimal levels of fat, plus a mix of digestible proteins, vitamins, and minerals, this kitten food supports growing muscles and bones without putting on the pounds. The small, x-shaped kibble is easy to pick up and chew, even as new teeth grow in. And because your kitten's immune system is still developing, this diet contains an exclusive blend of antioxidants and vitamins to strengthen and protect your kitten’s natural defenses, so they can keep growing strong.

Only one of its kind!

My rescue kitten was on the Mother&BABYCAT food and I wanted to stick with the same quality of nutrition as he was thriving. My kitten is trained and gets “snacks” so in addition to being neutered, is susceptible to have more weight gain. He also likes to have a little wet food at night. He grew out of the baby mousse and now eats the kitten loaf in sauce and once in a while the kitten thin slices in gravy to vary the textures as recommended by his vet. His very favorite though is his x shaped crunchy dry kitten spayed/neutered Royal Canin food that gives him that satisfying crunch! He seems to just love biting into those and runs when he hears that measuring cup! He only eats a cup a day so it lasts a while. It seems like the pet stores have sales often on the kitten food. I just wish Royal Canin was available in more places, like Target & grocery stores!

Kitty’s love it

I have two picky Sphinx cats. But as soon as they here that food fall into the bowl they are right there. And eat every last crumb. I’ve tried several cheaper foods and always come back. !!!

Great for growing kittens!

Our two cats are 18 months old now, but from ages 4-12 months they ate Royal Canin kitten food exclusively! Our veterinarian has always commented on how healthy and strong our little babies are!

She loves it!

My kitten was on the regular kitten dry food which she loved but after she was spayed I felt that she should have a lower calorie choice so hopefully she does not become an overweight adult cat. She loves the taste of the Kitten Spayed / Neutered dry cat food just as much which makes me very happy!
