ROYAL CANIN® Gastrointestinal is a precisely formulated diet for cats with acute and/or chronic gastrointestinal conditions. Historically, most cases of gastrointestinal disease were treated with a minimum of 24-48 hours of gastrointestinal rest. However, research has shown that lack of food causes detrimental effects to the intestinal villi. Appropriate nutritional support can have a profound effect on the short-term recovery and longer-term disease management of patients. Recommended in case of: Acute and chronic diarrhoea, Gastritis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Colitis, Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), Maldigestion/ Malabsorption, Dysrexia, re-feeding after surgery. Not recommended in case of: Lymphangiectasia, exudative enteropathy. This diet is complete and balanced and can be fed long-term. A full health check should be performed by a veterinarian every 6 months.
- Digestive Support: A highly digestible formula with balanced fibres, including prebiotics, to support healthy digestion and gastrointestinal transit.
- High Energy: High energy content to reduce meal volume and decrease intestinal load.
- High Palatability: High palatability to satisfy decreased appetites.
- S/O Index: This diet creates a urinary environment unfavourable for the development of struvite and calcium oxalate uroliths.
