Skin and food sensitivities in dogs 

Precise, veterinarian-recommended nutrition for dogs with allergies or skin issues. 
Skin and food products


As a result of wildfires in Australia there is currently a reduced availability of the supply of Canine Selected Protein KO that will last for the next few months. Royal Canin has a full range of dermatology diets. Your veterinary team can help you choose the alternative diet that will be best for your dog and help you with an appropriate dietary transition. We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause, at what we respect is also a very difficult time in Canada and around the globe.

Visible differences in your dog’s skin

Itching and scratching. Scooting and sneezing. Food sensitivities or environmental allergies can leave your dog distressed.

All you want is to help soothe their skin. That’s why your veterinarian might recommend a novel protein or hydrolyzed protein diet. 

Transitioning your pet to a new food

We recommend at least a seven-day transition when starting a new diet.

Dogs and especially cats may reject a new food if it is not introduced slowly by transitioning over a period of 7 – 10 days. To effectively transition your dog to a new formula, we suggest slowly mixing the new food in with the existing food in gradually increasing amounts.

Introducing new updates to the Royal Canin Dermatology Diets

Royal Canin is updating the dermatology diets by enhancing the packaging and improve palatability and digestibility.

We are also excited to introduce a new diet, Canine Hydrolyzed Protein Moderate Calorie dry, for dogs who have food allergies and a tendency to gain weight.
