Wish there was a bigger bag

I put my cat on this food for his diabetes and he likes it but I really wish it came in a bigger bag so I wasn’t buying it as much!

Kibble Size Too Big

My petite cat is diabetic and the Glycobalance supplements her insulin regimen. However the kibble size is quite large compared to other dry cat foods. The Glycobalance kibble is bigger than my dog's food. Please consider reducing the size of this kibble, I think it would go farther for her and be more attractive. Currently, I will run it through the food processor to grind it up; for the amount of money I am spending on a Vet diet, I don't think I should have to take extra steps in feeding her. Please see the attached photo

Would recommend for your cat

Having a diabetic cat you are limited with available, acceptable food. My cat loves dry food and glycobalance works great. It satisfies his need to crunch while filing his belly.

Great Option for diabetic cat

My cat has diabeties and bladder inflammation. This food addresses both problems as well as keeping the insulin to a minimum. Best of all she loves the food. Thanks Royal Canine!

Excellent Product

I have 5 yr old 21 lb cat. Although he is not diabetic being overweight he stands a good chance. I’m feeding this product in hopes of keeping that from happening. So far so good.

This was suggested by our vet when our cat developed diabetes and even tho' he's a fussy eater, he seems to really like this food.

Happy, Healthy, Senior Cat

Our vet explained that male tabbies often get diabetes as they get older. Thanks to Royal Canin Glycobalance Diet, our 15 year old, Max, is healthy, active, looks and acts ten years younger. I'm looking forward to many more years with our tabby.
