try this...my vet sold me the royal canin hepatic but my cat just would not eat it but this she loves, such a relief, so if you are trying to find a food that suits your cat do try this.
Best for cats without teeth & liver toxicity.My vets flog Royal Canin, probably because RC fund University Chairs, also known as Professors in Dietetics in America, and they most probably do in the UK. I'm a qualified Dowser and my dowser told me that this would be an alternative that my cat could eat when RC Hepatic proved too hard, and a life time of RC plus not so good as it looks could have created this. - save a life today and for the rest of their life. Five Star hero! He is now able to eat high protein Applaws due to this. And is still alive.
My cat loves this, good thing too as its for life!My cat loves this food, which is fab as she will be on it for life due to her liver disease.
Great for reduced appetiteOur cat has cholangio hepatitis which means he has reduced liver function and a reduced appetite. He eats this no problem.
