The Complete Guide to Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food is a specialized formula designed to support the unique nutritional needs of cats, particularly those with conditions related to glycemic management. Formulated with a combination of carefully selected ingredients, this diet aims to promote overall health while addressing specific concerns related to blood glucose levels, urinary health, and muscle maintenance.

  • Royal Canin Glycobalance Formula -Crafted with a precise balance of nutrients, the Royal Canin Glycobalance formula is tailored to support cats' health in multiple aspects. A moderate fat content helps maintain a healthy body weight, which is vital for overall well-being. The high protein content aids in preserving muscle mass, ensuring that cats maintain their strength and agility. Additionally, the formula is rich in antioxidants, promoting vitality and supporting the immune system.

  • Blood Glucose Management -This diet offers targeted support for adult cats struggling with blood glucose regulation. Promoting healthy post-prandial blood glucose levels helps to stabilize fluctuations, contributing to overall metabolic balance and well-being.

  • Prebiotics for Glucose Management -This formula includes prebiotics and a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers. These components work synergistically to regulate glucose fluctuations, providing sustained energy levels and promoting digestive health.

  • Urinary Health Support -Cats are prone to urinary issues, including the formation of crystals such as struvite and calcium oxalate. This diet promotes an unfavorable environment in the urinary tract for developing such crystals, thereby supporting urinary health and reducing the risk of related complications.

  • Muscle Mass Maintenance -Maintaining muscle mass is crucial for cats' overall health and mobility. With its high protein content, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food supports muscle maintenance, ensuring that cats remain strong and agile throughout their lives.

  • Lifestage and Special Diet -Suitable for cats of all life stages, from adulthood onward, this specialized diet is particularly beneficial for those requiring high-protein, low-glycemic nutrition. Formulated without peas and with grains, it meets the specific dietary needs of cats while adhering to veterinary standards for quality and efficacy.

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food offers a comprehensive nutritional solution for cats requiring glycemic management. Addressing key concerns such as blood glucose regulation, urinary health, and muscle maintenance supports cats' overall well-being and vitality, helping them thrive at every stage of life.

What Is Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food?

Diabetes can severely impact your cat's life. Being unable to manage their blood sugar puts them at risk for a plethora of medical issues, including chronic dehydration, depression, a decline of motor functions, and eventually, death. Royal Canin Glycobalance Cat food prevents all of these!

How Does Diabetes Affect Cats?

Diabetes affects approximately 2% of the total population of house cats. While it can be a genetic condition, it can also be induced due to poor lifestyle choices like overeating and not getting enough exercise. When your cat has trouble managing their blood sugar, it means that their body cannot use the fuel that they are eating.

This can lead to an increased appetite that occurs along with weight loss. This can be a dangerous situation as it can lead to malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies. Your cat can also have increased urine output and increased thirst, along with that. This is your cat's body trying to flush out the excessive nutrients in the kidneys and liver.

Your cat can become dehydrated as a result. The excess nutrients can also damage your cat's liver, and they can develop fatty liver, which is difficult to reverse. Finally, diabetes can also lead to nerve damage, especially in the limbs. This damage can lead to loss of function in the limbs, which may need amputation to treat.

How Does Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food Help?

Royal Canin Glycobalance Dry Cat food contains everything your cat needs to lead a normal, healthy life. The formula is made by vet nutritionists and vets who have made Royal Canin Glycobalance Dry Cat food with targeted nutrients that help manage this condition in your cat.

Royal Canin Glycobalance Cat kibble is made with therapeutic levels of soluble and insoluble fibers. This ensures that your cat digests this food for longer, so your cat's body has a chance to absorb the nutrients, and their blood glucose levels don't fluctuate wildly.

To combat loss in muscle mass from the excess weight loss, Royal Canin Glycobalance Cat food contains a high amount of protein. With a 44% minimum guaranteed amount of protein, this food promotes healthy weight gain in your cat. A minimum 10% of fat content ensures that your cat doesn't gain excess weight as well!

Low starch levels ensure that your cat gets a high-quality, nutrition-dense kibble that doesn't add empty calories. Finally, Royal Canin's patented S/O Index prevents painful bladder stones from developing in your cat and saves them from unnecessary pain and possible surgeries.

Are There Any Precautions or Side Effects of Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Feline Glycobalance Dry Cat Food?

Royal Canin Glycobalance Cat kibble is an entirely safe and nutritious cat food that you can feed to your cat without having to worry about any side effects or precautions. However, you should make sure your cat has access to a fresh bowl of water whenever you give dry food.

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. Can I Give This to My Dog?

    No, you should never give cat food to your dog. Cat food is more nutritionally dense, and you risk your dog becoming overweight. If you are concerned about diabetes in your dog, you should ask your vet about Royal Canin Glycobalance Dog Food instead.

  2. Can I Give This to My Other Cats?

    You can give this diet to your other cats only if your vet has examined them and has deemed that it is necessary for them as well. Since this diet is formulated to balance glucose levels, you risk adverse effects if you give this food to a healthy cat.

  3. Does This Need a Prescription?

    Yes, this cat food needs an updated vet's prescription to purchase. This is because this food is made to modify your cat's body chemistry.

  4. How Should I Store This Cat Food?

    You should store this kibble in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight or moisture and protected from extremes of temperatures. You should also ensure that your cats don't have free access to this food as it can lead to overeating!

  5. What Is the S/O Index?

    Royal Canin's S/O Index is a proprietary blend of nutrients that decrease the occurrence of calcium oxalate and struvite crystals and stones in your cat's bladder system.

Feeding guides are general recommendations only. The amount of food required by your cat may vary above or below that listed in this feeding guide. In consultation with your veterinarian it is recommended that you weigh your cat 4 - 6 weeks after starting a new diet in order to adjust food intake to maintain or achieve an optimal body weight and body condition score. Consult your veterinarian for specific feeding guidelines for your cat. This diet is formulated to be complete and balanced. It is unnecessary to feed leftover foods, kitchen scraps or additional supplements. It is recommended that your cat be fed 2 - 4 equal portions of the diet per day. Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Store this product in a cool, dry place.

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet's digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.
