Royal Canin Gastro-Intestinal Moderate Calorie is a complete food for adult cats with acute intestinal absorption disorders. Its low calorie content makes it also suitable for cats that are prone to being or are overweight. It can be used in cases of chronic and acute diarrhoea, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), malabsorption, maldigestion, colitis, gastritis, bacterial overgrowth, exudative enteropathy or chronic pancreatitis. It has been specially developed to ensure that digestive health is restored and to encourage nutritional restoration and convalescence. Digestive health is supported with omega-3 long chain fatty acids. Digestive security will be maximised with carefully selected, highly digestible ingredients such as rice, beet pulp, fish oil, prebiotics and highly digestible LIP proteins. They will help to promote beneficial intestinal flora and to limit the growth of bad bacteria in the gut.The ingredients are also highly palatable to encourage cats to eat frequently and spontaneously. The moderate calorie and low fat content with increase electrolytes will ensure that your cat's weight is controlled despite this. The food also contains high energy levels which allow smaller meal sizes to not overload the stomach.

 Royal Canin veterinary dients should only be given in conjunction with your vets recommendation!

Ok for pancreatitis?

sharran rigby smith

I think this is the fod the vet has recommended for our cat who is recovering from pancreatitis is this ok?

  • Non-Executive Director

This diet should be acceptable to give to a cat recovering from pancreatitis. A stable diet without too much variation is probably helpful too.
