There are many cats of all ages with gastrointestinal tract disorders. The most common symptoms are vomiting and diarrhoea. The cause of these symptoms varies widely. The severity and the treatment of gastrointestinal tract disorders are very different and in some cases this special diet food is used (in addition to treatment).
Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Cat
Nutrition plays a major role in the treatment of digestive problems. Your vet will usually prescribe a special diet food. Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Cat can also help treat vomiting and/or diarrhoea. Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Cat is specially designed for cats with digestive disorders.
Acute and chronic diarrhoea
Chronic intestinal inflammations/Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Poor digestion and malabsorption
Bacterial overgrowth (sometimes after a course of antibiotics)
Liver disease (except for hepatic encephalopathy)
Gastritis (inflammation of the gastric mucosa often combined with the bowel)
Colitis (inflammation of the large intestine)
The combination of highly digestible protein, rice, special dietary fibre and fish oil in Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Feline ensures a balanced intestinal flora and optimal digestion. The gastrointestinal tract is under less strain, as the high energy density allows for smaller portions. The diet promotes weight gain during the recovery period. Cats with gastrointestinal disease may experience a decreased appetite, and weight loss may occur. The great tasting flavour of this diet promotes food intake, helping the cat to recover faster. The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA contribute to the health of the gastrointestinal tract. These diet foods also reduce the formation of both struvite and calcium crystals in the urine.
Nutrients which support a balanced digestive system.
Adequate energy content to meet the needs of cats without overloading the stomach.
High palatability to satisfy decreased or fussy appetites.
Epa/dha to help maintain a healthy digestive system.
