Royal Canin Sensitivity Control SC 27 is a complete food for cats. It can be fed to cats with food allergies or intolerances, IBD (Inflammatory bowel disease), Diarrhoea or cats undergoing a food elimination trial. It has been specifically formulated for sensitive cats and will help to reduce ingredient and nutrient intolerances. The food contains carefully selected ingredients which are very rarely known to be allergens in cats. Protein is naturally sourced in duck and chicken meat, and rice is the selected carbohydrate source. It contains specific nutrients to help to balance your cat's digestive system and give her optimum digestive security.

Please note: Recently the wet diet has been altered by increasing the chicken and decreasing the rice. This helps improve the texture of the chunks. There is added sunflower oil and a reduction of fish oil to improve the stability of the product. The overall moisture content has increased from 78% to 80% which helps to give better coverage of the chunks within the gravy. This does mean that the gravy will have a slightly more runny appearance. Royal Canin would like to reassure you that all these changes have been done to further improve the product, including the removal of cassia gum which has previously helped to give a thicker consistency; by removing this they are increasing the digestibility of the diet.

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

55 Stopped severe colitis
Verified Purchase

By Katy Mossman on 19 August 2019

I'm shocked that after switching to this my 14 year old cat has normal stools for first time in his life. Has had colitis and severe bouts at that but not any more. It's fantastic and he doesn't find it boring. Worth the money.

Kitten with a sensitive tummy

Talia Foa

Is this suitable for a kitten (Birman) now 16 weeks old or is there a kitten specific product.

  • Customer Service Advisor

Hi Talia,

Thank you for your question.

We would not recommend this until your cat is over 12 months old.

The Royal Canin Nutrition Second Age Kitten Food would be more ideal. You can find it here: https://www.viovet.co.uk/Royal-Canin-Feline-Health-Nutrition-Second-Age-Kitten-Food/c279/

Hope that helps,

Comparing this and another Royal Canin product

Sue Walsh

  • VioVet customer since 2014
  • From: Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

My vet has given me Royal Canin Sensitivity Control Chicken and Rice pouches for my cat which suffers from diarrhoea. What is the difference between this and the Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diets Sensitivity Control SC 27 Cat Food that you sell as it is cheaper than buying from the vets. Would it still be suitable?

  • Non-Executive Director

Royal Canin seem not to be very revealing on the ingredients of some of their diets. However the veterinary sensitivity diet seems to be based on chicken, with other "meats" included. The Sensitivity Control SC 27 is based on duck and "hydrolysed" chicken, (hydrolysed means in effect partly digested already to make it hypoallergenic). Otherwise the ingredients are virtually identical. As far as your cat is concerned, there is unlikely to be any difference in the two diets. Often different diets are made for veterinary surgeons to sell as a marketing technique and they are not significantly different from alternative diets supplied to other retailers, they just have a slightly different name. I suspect this is the case here.

Alternative to dry


My 16 year old cat is in good health other than very soft stool. I changed her to Royal Canin Sensitivity Control SC 2 months ago (on recommendation from our vet). The effect has been great and her stool is back to normal (as long as she doesn't sneak any milk from the kids finished cereal bowls). She loves the wet food but isn't keen on the dry. I wanted to keep a mix to help keep her teeth clean. I wondered if the kibble is a bit big for an older cat. Do you have any recommendations for an alternative?

  • Non-Executive Director

It does sometimes gradually get more difficult for older cats to manage kibble at all. Other cats seem fine. (Some in fact learn to swallow them whole, especially if they have lost a lot of teeth!) If this food has helped with the stools I would be tempted to stay with it and keep offering some of the dry form. You could always mix it with the wet food, which will soften it slightly but still require a bit of work from the teeth.
