What is the cost for a 15 kg bag? I'm dog sitting and don't have to worry about buying the food but soon this dog will be up for adoption and I'd like to know how much it will cost before I commit. Some pet stores are charging $200 for 15 kilos

Great for my picky, sensitive Husky

My dog loves this food. She went from being a picky eater with occasional GI upset to eating every meal and no longer showing GI signs.

Very palatable

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Never had a dog (used it for my picky Italian Greyhound with digestive troubles) refuse it. It’s healthy & they love it. We feed/sell royal canine diets at the clinic I work at.

Helped my dog so quickly

After a month of not knowing what was wrong with my pit bull/ bull mastiff mix I was in tears. I felt so terrible for him. He has constant diarrhea, was losing weight and was all around not acting like himself. I tried everything I could think of and even started making his food at home for him. Nothing was working and my poor baby kept getting sicker. Many trips to the vet, hundreds of dollars in medication and many stressful days later - my vet recommended this food. After only 48 hours of eating this food I could already tell he was starting to feel better. As of now he’s been eating this food for 4 days and he is already 100% back to normal. I can’t believe the turn around. I am so happy with the results and will continue with this food.
