Where to buy low protein cat food online?

Aged cat has just been put on a low protein diet following an enormously inflated kidney and subsequent emergency treatement. Vet recommended Royal Canin, Hills or Eukanaba and, in a hushed whisper, advised to buy from internet as the vet's supply is extremely costly.

So, does anyone buy this stuff online and, if so, where's cheap and reliable to get it from?

His food is not covered on my insurance but his vet bills were, thank god, as they've already weighed in at over £1500.

Probably places like zooplus. There's lots of pet pharmacies online, plus eBay and amazon.

You are looking for Royal canin Renal, hills K/d or eukanuba renal on line. They are easily available. I have always found the royal canin to be the one that most cats eat.
However, it maybe worth buy the first lot through the vets as through the vet hills and royal canin offer a money back guarantee if the cat won't eat it. They do not offer this through the on-line retailers.

Useful to know, Lone - is that every vet?

To you knowledge anyway.

Sorry - just taking some time off work to watch Battleship so a tad disorganized.

Petmeds or Animed.

I've used bith of them for my pet food.

It is a standard offer through all vets.

That's a good offer. We all know how they can pick through new food with a look of "and this is food you say?"

This is great, thank you. Petmeds won the day for me, just waiting for delivery now.
Cat is not happy - thinks I'm starving him now he's having to do without his half piece of ham at bedtime.

We used to get ours from VioVet - really fast delivery and quite often have offers on.
