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

Royal Canin Gastrointestinal High Energy wet cat food is palatable, digestible GI cat food that 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.

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.

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!

Amazing product!

I bought this for my pet that has a weak stomach and would throw up daily and would have a hard time adjusting to any food product and ever since I switch to this particular food he never throws up anymore and is in great health!

Mealtime Is Now My Favorite Time

I was at my wits end. My cat refused to eat any of the Prescription Diets until I came across Royal Canin's Prescription food. She loves the taste and goes back for second helpings.

My Cat Loves This Food!

Our specialist Vet (Nutritionist) recommended this food for our cat who suffers from chronic constipation and also needs to trim down. She LOVES this food, and it has helped with her digestive issues.

Complete Diet for my IBD Diagnosed Kitty

I started this prescription, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Feline Gastrointestinal High Energy canned cat food when my Siberian kitten started having digestive issues and was diagnosed with IBD. It was great to have Royal Canin to turn to for her prescription needs for food. She was also prescribed the dry gastrointestinal high calorie food. There was an immediate difference in her mood, appetite and less hiding. Within months, you could see her growth and she went from struggling to thriving! Thank you for giving me back my beautiful baby and helping her feel better. She just turned 1 year and we will always be on Royal Canin Prescription food to keep her belly happy.

A double life saver!

Both of my Siamese cats have pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease, so finding a high quality food that they both could eat was critical. One cat predominantly vomits and the other cat suffered from loose stool. Feeding them strictly Royal Canin GI High Energy canned food along with mediation management has made it possible for me to stabilize both cats, help them maintain their weight and improve their quality of life. Both cats started eating the Royal Canin canned food without any problems and both continue to maintain a good appetite. As a Chiropractor, I am very concerned about the quality of food I eat and the quality of food I feed to my cats. I was impressed to learn about the lengthy history of research that stands behind Royal Canin products.
