The Golden Retriever has a straight muzzle and teeth that meet in a scissors bite. The kibble size, shape and texture of the GOLDEN RETRIEVER ADULT formula is designed specifically for this breed and encourages him to chew.

The skin and coat reflect the dog’s state of health. An appropriate food is important in maintaining healthy skin and coat. The GOLDEN RETRIEVER ADULT formula helps support the skin’s role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin and coat health (EPA and DHA).

Golden Retrievers can be prone to cardiac sensitivity. The GOLDEN RETRIEVER ADULT formula contains specific nutrients to help support healthy cardiac function: taurine, EPA and DHA.

Excess weight gain can affect the health of Golden Retrievers, and therefore an appropriately balanced food is necessary for their well-being. GOLDEN RETRIEVER ADULT helps maintain the breed’s ideal weight with an appropriate calorie and fat content.

Golden Retrievers are well-known for their happy personalities and luxurious coats. With targeted nutrients, GOLDEN RETRIEVER ADULT helps to promote an ideal body condition and strengthen skin, while the tailored kibble helps satisfy appetite.

Golden Retriever Adult Dog Food

My golden has been eating this for about a month now - she's losing some weight - the low calories are important for her right now. She seems to love it and transitioned to this brand easily.

Great food for our goldens

We have been using this food for our 2 goldens who are 4 years old. It has never given them any digestion problems and their coats look amazing. My one complaint is that the bags sometimes are more vacuum sealed and sometimes less. I wish they were always vacuum sealed tight. They are never open just loose in the bag sometimes.

Amazing Results!

I switched to Royal Canin (from Blue) a couple of months ago at the recommendation of my Vet. So glad I did, as I have seen an incredible difference in my 8 year old Golden. Before Royal Canin, his energy level was low, coat was lackluster and eyes appeared cloudy. Cannot believe the difference in our 8 year old!! He finally plays (really plays!) with our 18 month old Golden, which she needed. His coat is soft and shiny AND his eyes look clear and healthy!! Thank you Royal Canin for such a great product!

Great to hear he is doing so well!

The proof is in the pooping!

I just switched to this dog food and from the moment I opened the bag I was impressed! My two Golden's love the flavor! After a few days of adjusting to the new food, their poop tells me everything I need to know. They are pooping fewer times each day and less is coming out. This dog food has more nutrients to absorb and less waste to get out. As a dog mom, this makes me feel so good to know I have finally found a healthy dry dog food!!!!

Great feedback, thank you!

Vet Recommended

As a practicing small animal veterinarian, I recommend Royal Canin breed specific diets to my clients looking for personalized nutrition for their pets. I personally feed my two Golden Retrievers the Golden Retriever Adult formula. I've found that it keeps my dogs' coats beautiful while managing their caloric intake. They love it, tolerate it well, and I am happy with Royal Canin's commitment to science and quality.

I have been giving my boy this food since he was a puppy and now I can’t find it any where! All the pet stores say that they are not getting the product from your company. I’m on 3 months of searching for my boys food. This is great dog food for my Golden, but now I have to change his food. Please help me understand why this is happing?
