Product details

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Diabetic DS 46 is a complete dietetic feed, specially formulated to regulate glucose supply for diabetic cats.

How it works 

Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diet is formulated to manage the blood-glucose level in diabetic cats, whilst also delivering the general nutrition they need to stay healthy. It is high in protein and has a moderate calorie content, which maintains muscle mass whilst fighting excess weight gain during treatment. As well as this, it is specially developed to reduce blood glucose levels and help to keep diabetic cats strong. Royal Canin Feline Veterinary Diet is also low in starch, which can be difficult for diabetic cats to digest.

Key benefits 

  • formulated to manage blood glucose levels in diabetic cats
  • high protein formula maintains muscle mass, keeping diabetic cats healthy 
  • moderate calorie content to help fight excess weight gain during treatment
  • low starch formula to assist digestion
  • tasty flavours your cat will love.

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.
