A = Aromatic to help stimulate appetite in cats and encourage eating with round-shaped kibble

Helps compensate for decreased appetite with a highly palatable energy-dense formula to reduce meal volume

Helps promote kidney function with a precise antioxidant complex, fatty acids from fish oil, low phosphorus, and targeted protein levels

Works in conjunction with a variety of appetite-stimulating Royal Canin Renal Support wet and dry cat food varieties

Your vet recommended Royal Canin Renal Support A for a reason. This highly palatable dry cat food is specially formulated to care for the kidney health of adult cats under veterinary supervision. “A” stands for Aromatic, and this formula can help stimulate your cat’s appetite. The round-shaped dry kibble can be mixed with other Royal Canin Renal Support formulas, which have a variety of palatable aromas and dry or wet forms to help find the right combination to get your cat eating again. And the energy-dense diet provides nutritional support in smaller portions, since cats with kidney challenges have decreased appetites. Plus, it contains a precise antioxidant complex, fatty acids from fish oil, low phosphorus, and targeted protein levels to help support kidney function.

Royal Canin (A) Dry Cat Food

14-yr old male Pan was diagnosed with early renal & started on all the Royal Canin A dry cat food & a few tins of wet and yes, as I read others he's gained weight, not so bony, & I can't be happier he's going to live longer.

I love Royal Canin

I bought this for my cat Buddy who had stage 2 kidney disease. I took him to the vet for blood work 6 months later and his labs were normal. MY Buddy is back to his normal playful crazy self! I would recommend this diet absolutely!

Great to hear that Buddy is doing so well!

Picky cat loves it

My 15 year old finicky girl loves this. She's also known as a puker and this food seems to sit well with her. She will wait for this dry food to be set out instead of eating her fresh canned food!

Great Product

We tried them all and this in the only one my cat would eat. She loved it from the start and is doing great on your product. She is a Tortiseshell cat so she is very picky!

My CKD Kitty Loves This As a Snack, to Her Wet Foo

My CKD kitty has wet food during the day, but I offer the dry to her upstairs at night, for a snack. It's easy to offer a small amount of kibble in case she gets hungry at night.

Satisfying for cat

Kitten was started out on this brand, and I believe it is healthier for him because of his breed. But I can’t say much about price
