As I've been advocating for all feline lovers, cats are strict carnivores. It means that your cat's nutritional needs are met by the consumption of a large amount of animal-based proteins (meat/organs) and derives much less nutritional support from plant-based proteins (grains/vegetables). Cats lack specific metabolic (enzymatic) pathways and cannot utilize plant proteins as efficiently as animal proteins.

It is very important to remember that not all proteins are created equal. Proteins derived from animal tissues have a complete amino acid profile. Plant-based proteins do not contain the full complement of the critical amino acids required by an obligate carnivore. The quality and composition of a protein is also referred to as its biological value.

Taurine is one of the most important amino acids that is present in meat but is missing from plants. Taurine deficiency will cause blindness and heart problems in cats.

Because plant proteins are cheaper than meat proteins, pet food companies will have a higher profit margin when using corn, wheat, soy, rice, etc. Grains are cheap. Many canned foods contain approximately 3-5% carbohydrates - canned foods also have a lot of water in them which is a good thing. In the wild, your cat would be eating a high protein, high-moisture (up to 75% water - remember, the human body is 70% water so think of small prey having the same or more amounts of water in their body composition), meat-based diet, with a moderate level of fat and with only approximately 3-5% of her diet consisting of carbohydrates. The average dry food contains 35-50% carbohydrate calories. Some of the cheaper dry foods contain even higher levels.

Cats have no dietary need for carbohydrates and a diet that is high in carbohydrates can be detrimental to their health, causing urinary tract problems, like eating too much salt will dehydrate humans, carbs will dehydrate your cat. Cats will also eat until that protein quotient is filled, causing over-eating of the cheap stuff, obesity (and thus diabetes) in cats. My cat, AC, had a sister who I made that mistake with. I lost DC in 2009 to feline diabetes - she was wildly overweight as she tried to use the cheap cat food to fill her protein quotient, actually eating more grains and carbs that her body couldn't process or even use. Cats are actually intolerant to gluten, causing allergic reactions (AC had scabs all over his body before I noticed anything). An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - that bag of good food may be expensive, but having to put your cat down because you can't afford the diabetes medication is more so - and you lose your friend. And I promise, this bag will last for a very long time.

FEED YOUR CATS PROTEIN! Especially if they are indoor-only cats.

This is the ONLY food I give AC, my 13-lb. indoor-only Maine Coon, no table scraps and his treats are boiled pieces of chicken. Not only has he lost weight and the scabs are gone, he's more playful, more loving - he wants to be petted and picked up and played with, he doesn't shed NEARLY as much as he used to (we only brush him once or twice a month), hairballs are non-existant, he doesn't produce excess ear wax (also an allergic reaction to gluten) so his big Maine Coon ears are nice and clean. He's a kitten again at 6-years old, and we expect many more happy years with him :)

Best Hydrolyzed Protein diet available.

By CatNut

from Michigan, United States

Comments about Royal Canin Veterinary Diets Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Hypoallergenic HP Dry Cat Food:

I am an LVT, and after researching the available hydrolyzed protein diets for a chronic diarrhea cat with severe intestinal dysbiosis, found that Royal Canin is the ONLY hydrolyzed protein diet containing prebiotics. Switched the kitty to this diet along with probiotic daily (as recommended by Texas A&M GI lab) and finally she is feeling better and much more playful! My own kitty is on this diet as well to control his Eosinophilic Granuloma symptoms, his skin is clear and his coat is soft and shiny. I recommend Royal Canin's hydrolyzed protein products over the other manufacturers to all my special-needs patients.

Perfect for Sensitive Diets!

By yautjan

from Tualatin, OR, United States

Comments about Royal Canin Veterinary Diets Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Hypoallergenic HP Dry Cat Food:

My cat, Taltos, has been on this diet for a few years now. He was very sick his whole life as he was allergic to almost everything we gave him. He's thrived on this food, and it's kept him in great health (and kept his coat gorgeous). You would have no idea he was 11. My 9 month old kitten, Garfunkle, is also eating this food and he's been doing very well on it even though he does not have any allergies.
