Prolonged my FKD cat's life

My cat was given a heartbreaking Feline Kidney disease diagnosis in July 2018 and expected to have just a few weeks to live due to her blood results being completely off the charts. We immediately switched her to this food and she took to it immediately and ended up surviving and thriving on it for another 2 years and sadly passed away at the end of august 2020.

Recipe change?

Wondering if the recipe has changed this year, as all 3 of my cats have been itching on this diet. One in particular, who is more sensitive, has started losing fur on her chin and ears. They’ve never had problems on this diet before, and have been on it for years. I have treated them twice for fleas and mites this past month, and have done an extraordinary amount of dusting during lockdown, so I can only imagine it’s their food that’s affecting them. Probably all the wheat!

Excellent renal product!!

We tried various dietary foods for our cat as he was being sick alot and had dodgy stomach, but nothing seemed to fix it. He was also dropping weight alot because of this. Further tests showed that his renal behaviour was lower than it should be so we were advised by our vets to try these. Wow, what a difference!! Firstly we were warned that he might not like the taste, yet wolfed them down!!! And secondly he kept them down, his sickness became less and poos became solid again. Very impressed!

A disaster

First my cat vomited then just stopped eating it almost all together. She became lethargic and won't come down the stairs to meet me. Not sure this is the best food for all kidney disease cats.

Vet advised a dry food to go with the wet renal royal canin sachets that we are already using. Our bengal girl instantly took to the food and only a small amount seemed to fill her up. She is comfortable going back as / when she wants another mouthful and the food doesn't smell strongly like some of the other renal ones do. All in all she seems to find it quite tasty.

Seems very palatable

I have 2 sixteen year old cats, one of whom had renal failure. Bought this as vet said specialist renal diet might help turn his kidneys around. It was a success - I tried all 3 RCV formulations as renal cats can be very fussy eaters. They ate it heartily & it seemed to be joint favourite. out of the the 3 RCV varieties. Can't comment on efficacy for renal support, as Kaspar died from kidney failure within a few weeks of my purchase.

Happy Eater

My lovely choosy Cat [nearly 17] was diagnosed with Kidney failure last year and after some trials I have found this variety suits her very well ... kind to her stomach and tasty too, perfect!

She loves it!

Our 11 year old cat was diagnosed with renal failure a year ago. She is extremely fussy and will not eat any of the wet renal foods. She loves these biscuits and even more since they have changed the shape to discs for some reason.

Eats this with gusto

My Ragdoll was very very ill and diagnosed with kidney failure, she was on the brink, my vet brought her back to life, now she eats this like there's no tomorrow she is a really fussy eater but no problem with this. jst wish it was not so expensive.

it works

Fat's had -50% renal function when diagnosed, he was placed on this, with the associated wet food diet and recieved a pill each day. The vet gave him two years, however he lived two more years than the vet forcast (19 years) and without any issues or further treatment. I was strict with the food and he lived indoors. It is an expensive diet but well worth it.

Life saving

We have 3 cats, one of them is 15 years old, another 8 and the last one is 4 but has been having severe renal problems since he was born. We chose Renal with our vet for all of them. The reason is simple, kidney/renal issues are the main reason of death in house cats, may the issues be given by old age or by genetic disorders, Royal Canin Renal, has helped us avoid this and kept the little dude, that was given only 2 years of life, alive and well for 4! We are really happy of this product. We wish it could cost slightly less, for all those people like us that decide to adopt kittens that have issues to give them a good life anyway and sometimes go through a lot of expenses to do that, that said, i seriously recommend it, good for all ages, my dude's are in great shape! :-)

preferred by our cats

One of our 4 cats was recently diagnosis with renal problems. We found that separating him from the others was problematic as each cat wanted to eat the others' food. The dry cat food meant we can leave a bowl of this out for all to eat (vet says it will not harm the others). The one's who don't need to eat seem to prefer the renal food, and typically the one who should be eating it is trying to eat the other food... No idea how effective it is medically as his next blood test is not for a week.

Please include the Renal Special variety!

My cat has had severe kidney disease since birth. I've tried with normal renal dry food but the positive effects on my cat are way more clear with the Renal Special variety (for our extreme case anyway!). It would be great if this type could also be introduced at zooplus!

not sure

I've found a large majority of cats I look after don't like this food, but cats with renal problems are notorious for changing their preferences. My advice would be to opt for small bags or sachets just in case.

Our 8 and a half year old cat was found to have a slightly higher kidney value than usual. We got a free 50g pouch of Royal Canin Renal Veterinary Diet from our vet, and we've been feeding our cats Royal Canin for years. The Renal 23 variety was immediately accepted by our cat and to be honest she almost inhaled it! Even our healthy cat likes the taste of it. A brilliant product!

The only dry food he'll eat

My cat with kidney failure has had many problems with eating, even when he was healthy. This is the only one that he eats, and I've tried all brands!

the best!

I've tried lots of different renal kibble for my cats but they always turned up their noses. But they adore these biscuits - highly recommended!!!!

Royal Canin Special Diet kibble

Great product, but one of my babies also prefers the Royal Canin Renal Special Diet RSF 26 variety.

This food is so well matched with the other kidney foods, and the diet is clearly working for my cat! Perhaps they could make them a little more appetising but you can't have everything - anyway she still prefers these to other brands!
