Kitten Spayed / Neutered Dry Cat Food

Royal Canin Spayed/Neutered Kitten Dry Food is precisely formulated for kittens up to 12 months old after surgery

The benefits

  • 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

Product description

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.

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!

The Purrfect Food got my Kittens

I adopted 2 little kittens and my vet advised me to feed them Royal Canin Kitten food. She told me it was better for their sensitive tummies and has all the nutrients that their growing bodies need. They have now been eating it since June 28. Both kittens - Luna and Sadie are thriving! Their coats are so soft and they haven’t had one upset tummy since switching!

My kitties love it!

I was given a small bag of this by the rescue society I got both of my kittens from and boy do they love this. I bought a bigger bag and another bag of kitten food by a different brand and they absolutely prefer the Royal Canin over the other dry food. One of them has a big appetite and will continue to eat out of his brothers bowl after feeding from his own bowl! I noticed that this brand is good quality. I did not try this before with my previous cat and I believe this brand of food is healthier and better for my kitties. They are so active with a healthy appetite and are growing so fast! I wish to try the appetite control line of food next once they are past the kitten stage. I definitely recommend this to anyone!
