Promotes digestive health and optimal stool quality with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics

High calorie content allows cats to eat small meal portions and still get the nutrition they need

Enriched with a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers for GI health

Supports urinary health with the exclusive S/O Index, which creates an environment unfavorable to crystal formation in the bladder

You’ve tried everything to help with your cat's GI issues, whether those are vomiting, diarrhea, or lack of appetite. And while bland homemade diets are often used for digestive upsets, your cat could be missing some key nutrients to help them fully recover. But with the help of your veterinarian and Royal Canin, there’s not just hope—there can be a true difference.

This palatable, digestible GI cat food supports digestive health with high fat and calorie content, so you can feed your cat small portions to support their sensitive stomach. This also helps underweight cats or cats who are eating less get the calories they need. A combination of highly digestible proteins and prebiotics helps maintain the balance of good bacteria in the gut. A blend of dietary fibers supports healthy digestion for optimal stool quality. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from fish oil help nourish and soothe the GI tract. And the exclusive S/O Index supports urinary health by creating an environment unfavorable to crystal formation in the bladder. Ask your veterinarian about pairing with Royal Canin Gastrointestinal High Energy dry cat food and Gastrointestinal cat treats as a complement to your cat’s diet.

Cornish Rexes Love It!

We have two Cornish Rex cats, one with a VERY sensitive stomach. We have tried many different foods and have had a ton of vet visits - but we couldn't narrow down why she was throwing everything up. The vet finally prescribed this food and it works! We also give to our other Cornish even though she doesn't have tummy issues, it just makes everyone's life easier. They both looove this food

wish there was more of a variety of this food. My cat has been on it for quite some time and a variety of flavor would be nice

This is the only cat food my cat can eat because of his stomach issues. He is a health, beautiful kitty at eight and a half. He is very alert and has a soft, shiny coat.

This has really helped y foster kitten thrive!

The rescue I am with received an approximately 6 week old kitten with a prolapsed intestine. After a repair under sedation, she was put on Gastrointestinal food. After a couple weeks, we tried store brand food but she was not able to tolerate it. She was put back on the gastrointestinal food and is growing, happy and active.

good food

great food but agrees to the other rating that they need to make a 3.3oz can most cats do not like left overs

Great cat food. Need smaller portions.

My cat loves this and it is helping him recover from terrible IBD symptoms. But, Royal Canin really really needs to make 3.3 oz cans of this. The 5.8 oz can is too large and the cat won't eat leftovers. I'm wasting a lot of food.
Royal Canin response
Great suggestion!

My cat loves it!

When my littlest was diagnosed with IBD, the vet wanted her to start on the GI HE to help control the diarrhea. Although it hasn't helped with that aspect, it has helped her gain weight again because she LOVES the taste of this. We often have to switch her foods because she gets bored of the taste, but this is something we feed her every day and she will chow down!
