Ask Your Own Question

Feeding Gastro Intestinal long term

25th Apr 2015
Chris Lamb

My Cat was diagnosed last year with ulcerative colitis, and has had runny smelly stools ever since. Nothing has changed that until I tried GI 32 and in the last 2 weeks she has near normal stools, can I feed it long term? Also my other cat 'steals' it when he can from her, he is fine. will this food be ok for him, it won't hurt him in any way?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Marvellous result I would say. It is perfectly safe for both your cats to eat this food and nothing else except water. If it continues to work, then that is what I would do.

Little Pancreatic Function

7th Jan 2015
Michelle

Our cat had an operation to remove a cyst. The vet reported that she had very little pancreatic function and put her on Lypex. She has recently refused to take the Lypex grains. She used to take them on thin, low fat, chicken slices, but now is not interested. Would GI32 be a good food to give to her, perhaps in place of Lypex?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Lypex is normally given after blood and faecal tests have demonstrated that the natural levels of enzymes are too low. I am not sure if your cat really needs them or not. If additional enzyme supplementation is indicated, there are alternative products which can be used for this, such as Pancrex powder. If the enzymes are not really needed then I would abandon them and just feed whatever diet suits your cat. The Royal Canin GI 32 might well be very suitable. Ideally discuss this with your vet and perhaps give it a try.

Does this food contain taurine

3rd Dec 2014
Diane w

My ragdoll has EPI and someone has just told me that I need to be supplementing her with taurine as this food doesn't contain it?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

There is always someone who will say something. This diet is carefully made up to include all essential nutrients and it will certainly provide fully adequate levels of taurine. You do not need to worry.
