Product description

Royal Canin Exigent - Protein Preference dry cat food for the choosy, food sensitive cat. Containing special proteins, fats and carbohydrates that your cat will love
Post-ingestion perception is an essential distinguishing factor in what cats choose to eat. For many cats, this feeling is the overriding factor in deciding whether they will choose to eat this food over a prolonged period of time. The more positive the feeling about the food, the more likely the cat will be to eat this food in the future.

Royal Canin Exigent - Protein Preference cat food provides the right balance of nutrients for demanding, choosy cats, which are particularly sensitive to the taste of proteins in their food:

  • Highest acceptance: The texture, the taste and the aroma of Royal Canin Exigent 42 dry cat food with Protein preference meets the demands of the fussiest cat.
  • Helps maintain ideal weight: The balanced calorific content meets the nutritional requirements of a cat of ideal weight.
  • Healthy Fur: the balanced nutrients include biotin and borage oil (rich in Omega- 6 fatty acids) to support healthy and beautiful fur.
Cat's preferences for particular types of foods varies from cat to cat. The species, breed, experiences and habits are just some of the factors affecting preferences, influence whether your cat certain foods or not. That's why some cats have changeable appetites and can sometimes be hard to please. This can sometimes lead to irregular eating, which in turn can result in digestive problems. An irregular, unbalanced diet can even produce negative effects on your cat's fur.
