Vet Food Disclaimer

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Diabetic Pouches help to keep your cat with diabetes happy and healthy, suitable from the age of six months. Many cats suffer from diabetes mellitus, which is normally caused by genetic predisposition or being severely overweight. Diabetes means that your cats blood sugar levels will significantly increase, as insulin cannot be consistently produced, meaning that your cat cannot regulate its own blood sugars.

For diabetic cats, a diet such as Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Diabetic Pouches is crucial. It is full of beneficial features, including a lowered calorie content and less starch, both of which can assist in losing weight or keeping your cat at a steady healthy size. L-carnitine has always been included in this recipe, which can help increase fat-burning. It is rich in protein, helping to keep muscles strong even while your cat is losing weight and supporting a slow release of glucose.

Indications:

  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Body Condition Score (BCS) ≤ 6/9
  • Note: Insulin sensitivity may improve while your cat is on this diet. Blood sugar levels should be closely monitored and the insulin dose adjusted as necessary.
Contraindications:
  • Pregnancy or lactation, kittens
  • Overweight or obese cats (BCS ≥ 7/9)
Key benefits:
  • Moderate calorie content: can help to combat weight gain.
  • High protein content: helps to maintain muscle mass
  • Gluco modulation: specialised formula to help manage the postprandial blood glucose in diabetic cats.
  • Low starch: helps to reduce the absorption of excessive amounts of carbohydrates.
Length of treatment:
  • It is advisable to keep your cat on this diet for the rest of its life. Although diabetes can be reversible in cats, lifelong treatment reduces the risk of relapse.

 

Therapeutic veterinary diets are carefully formulated and recommended to be used in conjunction with veterinary advice and support.
Royal Canin strongly recommend you seek advice from your vet prior to and during feeding of any of these products to your pet.
