Royal Canin diabetic wet cat food pouches

11th Nov 2017
Lemon Drizzle

Please can you tell me the phosphorus level in the wet pouches. I can only find the analysis for the dry food on your page.
Many thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

We would firstly like to advise just as a precaution that the Royal Canin Diabetic Food is not suitable for feeding animals that have kidney problems, in case this is why the phosphorus level of the food is important to you. We would recommend speaking to your vet or an animal nutritionist (Royal Canin have a dedicated nutrition helpline) if this is the case.

The phosphorus level present in the wet pouches is 0.25g/100g of product, or 0.35g/100kcal.

I hope this helps.
