When to use it
The underlying cause of diabetes in cats is difficult to define. Often it has to do with a pet's genetic predisposition to the disease and can occur alongside other conditions like hyperthyroidism or Cushing’s disease. As in humans, diabetes in cats results from an insulin deficiency, which prevents them from metabolising sugars effectively. This can cause symptoms as diverse as excessive weight gain, or dramatic weight loss, weakness in the muscles, and poor general health. Your vet will be able to diagnose any issues surrounding your pet and offer advice on further treatment, so it is recommended that you make an appointment as soon as symptoms occur.
Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diet is a complete feed for adult diabetic cats and should be taken as your pet’s regular meal. It should not be used if your cat is pregnant, lactating, or undergoing a growth spurt. It is recommended that you initially feed your cat Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diet for up to 6 months before consulting your vet about extending the course.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diet to your cat, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
