My cats really like this.

I ordered this as a replacement for the Hill's Geriatric diet which was discontinued. I switched to their Early Support K/D which was very expensive in the canned form. My cats loved it but it is too pricey. My cats did not like the Early Suppler K/D dry food but they really like the Royal Canin Senior Consult dry food.

Our cat loves this food!!!

We started using Royal Canin cat dry and wet food about a year ago when our cat became very ill. Our vet wasn't sure she was going to make it very much longer. With TLC and Royal Canin we still have our precious Millie-Kate! Thank You so much for such quality food!

Very digestible

My cat has vomited a lot most her adult life from eating too fast and not digesting things. Once I switched her to this food, the issue has significantly decreased!

Cats love it

My house cats have been eating this for for months now and love it. I have a senior tabby who constantly would vomit with most foods, other than this one. Great food.

Tasty and nutritious

My cat has been on this food for over a year and still loves it. She routinely empties her bowl. She used to vomit routinely on her previous food. But now on Senior Consult she doesn't have any issues. Her hair coat looks great and her energy is amazing for a 15yr old cat.

My cat loves it!

My cat, Victor, turned 11 years old this month. We’ve been fortunate that he hasn’t had any healthy issues, but we thought he should be on senior diet with S/O Index. We are so glad we chose this product - he LOVES it!!! He gobbles it purring :) We are so happy to see him enjoying his food this much.

Seems to "turn back the clock" for my senior cat

Until my cat was 12 - she was the most playful, happy cat with a dog's personality and playfulness with everyone she met. Then, I found on lump on her torso and it was cancer. It was a "curable" cancer, but 5 ribs needed to be surgically removed along with some muscle. Along with recovery, she started to have stiffer joints, and I could hear some creaking bones and then she stopped stretching and cried out sometimes when I tried to stretch her legs. She was also showing signed of early chronic kidney disease. Her oncologist recommended another prescription diet for joint disease, with lots of omega 3s from fish oil. The results were okay - my cat didn't creak as much - but started to reject the food because of all the fish oil and she still didn't play with any of her many toys. 3 months ago, her oncologist told me she knew Royal Canin had a food with New Zealand Green Mussel - there was no science behind it yet - but she was okay with letting my cat try it. The results have been amazing after 2 months. I am writing this while my now 15 year old cat is running around with a toy in her mouth - and then jumping up on the sofa to drop said toy in my lap. Her most recent blood work was amazing. She loves the dry food - and wouldn't touch the wet. Seeing her like this is amazing. I fully recommend this food.

Missy Approves!

My 7 year old Siamese mix Missy loves this stuff! I was looking for a good food to help keep her healthy as she begins transitioning into her senior years when the Royal Canin rep for the clinic I work for told me that the Senior Consult would be good for her. I love the S/O index, the joint supplement in it, the Lysine, and the nutrients that help keep her fur soft and healthy! When I transitioned Missy from Hill’s Indoor Adult 7+ (which she hadn’t been eating very well) to Senior Consult, I literally had to take her bowl away for a little bit because she ate it so quickly that I was afraid she was going to make herself sick! Missy approves and so do I
