A Focus on Royal Canin Senior Consult

There are so many diets designed for senior pets. It can be hard to know which one is best to feed them. Senior Consult by Royal Canin is a veterinary diet available in both canned and kibble form designed with our senior feline friends in mind.

Formulated for Ageing Felines

The food has optimal protein and proper nutrient levels and is made to suit the needs of an older cat starting to show clinical signs of aging. Age itself is not a disease, but certain health conditions are more common in older pets. Senior Consult has controlled phosphorous levels and supplemental omega fatty acids to help support kidney health. It also has L-tryptophan, phosphatidylserine, and an antioxidant blend to help with cognitive function.

Supporting Joint Health in Senior Cats

Arthritis and sore joints are common concerns for our older pets. The diet supports joint health and helps reduce inflammation by including green-lipped mussel powder, Omega 3 fatty acids, glucosamine, and chondroitin.

Preventing Urinary Issues with the S/O Index

This, along with many other Royal Canin diets, has something called the S/O index. This index means that the food has been specially made to help manage urine pH, volume, and mineral concentrations, which prevents the formation of urinary crystals and stones. Many cats are prone to urinary issues, and diets with the S/O index can be very beneficial to those animals.

Maintaining Muscle Mass in Aging Cats

As they age, senior cats can lose muscle mass quickly. This diet helps maintain muscle mass by having high levels of quality protein supplemented with an amino acid called leucine.

With the variety of diets available, your veterinary healthcare team is happy to help determine which food is right for your pet.
