Benefits of Royal Canin Cat Food for Senior Cats

Managing the diet of a senior cat involves ensuring they receive optimal levels of protein, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Cats are considered carnivores (yes, even domesticated cats), which means that animal-based proteins and fats are absolutely essential to their overall health (and this is especially true for senior cats).

Making sure that your older cat is eating a balanced, nutrient-dense cat food should be one of your top priorities as a pet owner. Disease is one of the biggest problems among aging cats, and Royal Canin Senior Consult Cat Food contains numerous essential vitamins and minerals that will assist in bolstering your cat's immune system (and health in general).

Royal Canin Veterinary Consult line of cat foods all feature different blends, with this specific recipe having rice, corn, and chicken by-product as its three main ingredients. Fish oil and vegetable oil deliver quality fats, and the remaining ingredients aim to provide your cat with an optimal blend of micronutrients.


Founded by a veterinarian, Royal Canin has over 40 years experience in health nutrition. Our work with pet nutritionists, breeders, and veterinarians from around the world has provided us with knowledge about the specific nutritional requirements of cats.

What is the best Royal Canin for older cats?
Answer

Royal Canin Veterinary Care Nutrition Feline Senior Consult Dry Cat Food is an excellent choice for older cats aged 12 years and above. Specifically formulated to address the unique nutritional requirements of senior cats, this food provides a balanced blend of nutrients essential for maintaining their health. One of the key features of this food is its highly palatable kibble with a double texture. The crunchy exterior and soft interior stimulate your senior cat's appetite, making mealtime more enjoyable and encouraging them to eat. This is particularly beneficial for older cats who may have dental issues or reduced appetite. Royal Canin cat food is formulated to support aging-related issues such as joint health, digestive health, and renal function. It contains ingredients like antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, and reduced phosphorus levels, which help support your cat's overall well-being as they age.

Why do vets recommend Royal Canin for cats?
Answer

Vets often recommend Royal Canin for cats due to its commitment to quality and nutrition. Royal Canin's products are formulated with high-quality proteins that are carefully selected and controlled during manufacturing. This ensures that cats receive essential nutrients for their overall health and well-being. The use of exclusive airtight packaging in an oxygen-reduced atmosphere further enhances the preservation of flavor and nutritional quality. This meticulous packaging process helps maintain the integrity of the ingredients, preventing degradation and ensuring that cats enjoy a consistently high-quality diet. Moreover, Royal Canin invests in research and development to tailor its products to meet the specific nutritional needs of cats at different life stages. This dedication to scientific formulation ensures that cats receive balanced nutrition that supports their unique dietary requirements. Lila Christin, a pet owner, says that she feeds her cat both dry and wet Royal Canin cat food, and her cat is healthy and happy. Most cats in her knowledge that are fed this brand of cat food live up to 15 to 18 years. This shows that Royal Canin's products not only meet the nutritional needs of cats but also contribute to their longevity and overall well-being.Reference:https://www.quora.com/Is-royal-canin-a-healthy-cat-food

What nutrition do senior cats need?
Answer

Senior cats have unique nutritional requirements to support their aging bodies and maintain optimal health. As they age, their metabolism slows down, muscle mass may decrease, and they may become more susceptible to certain health issues. Providing the right nutrition becomes crucial in ensuring their well-being. JoAnna Pendergrass, a DVM from Atlanta, says that taurine is an essential nutrient for senior cats. It's crucial for maintaining heart health, proper vision, and reproductive function. As cats age, their ability to produce taurine decreases, making it important to include taurine-rich ingredients in their diet. These can include proteins like fish, poultry, and beef. Additionally, senior cats may benefit from diets with higher protein content to support muscle maintenance and prevent muscle loss associated with aging. Adequate hydration is also essential for senior cats, as they may have decreased thirst drive. Wet cat food or adding water to dry food can help ensure they're getting enough fluids. Furthermore, senior cat food formulas often contain ingredients tailored to support joint health, such as glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, to alleviate stiffness and discomfort.Reference:https://www.greatpetcare.com/cat-nutrition/taurine-for-cats/

What is the lifespan of an indoor cat?
Answer

Jamie Lovejoy, a DVM from Central New York, states that the lifespan of an indoor cat typically ranges from 13 to 17 years, with some cats even living into their early 20s. By contrast, cats who are allowed to roam outdoors face significantly shorter lifespans, typically living only 2 to 5 years. The reason for this discrepancy lies in the numerous dangers that outdoor environments pose to cats. Outdoor cats are exposed to various risks, including traffic accidents, attacks from predators, exposure to diseases, poisoning, and accidents. They may also encounter hostile interactions with other animals or humans. Additionally, outdoor cats are more prone to injuries from fights with other cats or animals, leading to infections or other health complications. In contrast, indoor cats are shielded from many of these hazards, leading to a longer and healthier life. They are less likely to encounter traffic accidents, predators, or harmful substances. Indoor cats also receive regular veterinary care and are protected from contagious diseases that outdoor cats may contract.Reference:https://www.petmd.com/cat/care/how-long-do-cats-live

Why is my 17-year-old cat so hungry?
Answer

If your 17-year-old cat is exhibiting increased hunger, it could be indicative of an underlying medical issue that needs attention. One common concern is hyperthyroidism, which can lead to weight loss despite an increased appetite. Symptoms may include muscle wasting, vomiting, increased thirst, and behavioral changes. Internal parasites can also cause increased hunger by depriving your cat of proper nutrition, even if you don't see worms in their stool. Signs may include an unkempt coat and runny stools. Diabetes mellitus, characterized by increased appetite alongside weight loss, excessive thirst, and urination, is another potential issue to consider. Lastly, cancer, though nonspecific, can increase a cat's caloric needs without apparent weight gain. Systemic or intestinal cancers may particularly affect appetite.
