Product not avalable

Vet recommended Glycobalance wet foot. Cat only likes sliced beef in gravy. Stores don't carry it. Just opened case of morsels. New redesigned cans do not have gravy. Can will not eat it. What do we do?

Still with Corn flour -CARBS

I have to say my cat likes eating it but i read reviews that it still has more carbs than other wet cat foods which is not good for diabetic cats. Why do you not change this? There are other brands that are better in this sense and have a good. Royal Canin NFE is 16% when there are many out there with 6%

He loves it!

Jasper's vet suggested Royal Canin Glycobalance Morsels after a rough bout of pancreatitis. He is a fussy cat and he enjoys eating. I was worried about his transition from Royal Canin Urinary SO, moderate calorie. No need to worry-he changed easily and remains happy and healthy. Thank you for taking care of my dear companion!

Very tasty! Or at least my cat thinks so

Needed something high in fiber for my geriatric cat. When he stopped eating a competitors canned food we tried this and he loves it!

bigger cans?

Cat loves it but my cat is on a larger size and he needs more than this tiny can. I wish there were bigger cans for him.

Inconsistent quality

Our cats generally love the glycobalance. However, there are time soon when we get a case where’s the color, size of the morsels, and moistness is different and they leave a good amount in their bowls. As this is the only food they can eat, it is somewhat concerning. First, they don’t get the nutrition that they need, and second, it’s expensive for the most not liking it. It’s like that for the whole case. Usually the next case is better. Why does this happen?
Royal Canin response
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We can see natural variations, but this should not affect the palatability of the product. When this happens please reach out to our Customer Care team at 800-592-6687
