Cats are considered to be in the adult life stage until the age of 7. Feeding a balanced diet specific to your cat’s needs during adulthood is essential to optimal health.

Within the feline species, there is a large array of breeds, lifestyles, and specific health conditions. Royal Canin recognizes that your cat is a unique individual, with precise nutritional needs. Our range of adult cat foods offers balanced nutritional solutions for specific breeds, maintenance and therapeutic needs. Provide your cat with precisely balanced nutrition for optimal health!

Nutritional Needs of Adult Cats

Adult cats have a wide variety of nutritional needs depending on their breed, lifestyle, and health status. Our feline maintenance products allow for nutritional customization. Based on your cat’s specific needs, Royal Canin maintenance products can provide nutritional support for activity level, reproductive status, environmental factors, anatomy of the jaw, and the prevention of certain medical conditions. All Royal Canin adult cat foods offer complete, precisely balanced nutrition for your cat.

Feeding Strategies for Adult Cats

Our feeding guidelines provide an estimate of what quantity to feed your adult cat. Your cat’s weight and body condition should be evaluated annually by your veterinarian to ensure the most appropriate nutritional selection and feeding quantities for optimal health.

Obesity is a significant problem in the pet population and puts cats at risk for serious diseases. Feeding appropriate quantities of food, divided into meals throughout the day, plays a key role in preventing obesity and its consequences. Your veterinarian can guide you through a safe and effective weight loss program for your cat, if needed.

The feline species originated as a desert animal. Domestic cats generally consume very little water. Maximizing water intake in cats plays an important role in urinary tract health. To help maximize your cat’s water intake, feeding canned food is highly recommended.
