Terrible ingredients

No wonder this dog food works, the ingredients are terrible so your dogs are basically malnourished. The first ingredient is corn?! It should be a protein and look at long list of other ingredients! Things that shouldn’t be in a dog food. Never again feeding my dog this food.

This works for overweight dogs!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve been buying this food for over 6 months. My overweight dogs have been losing weight, when they get the vet recommended amount of food. I got a different bag of RC, and my dogs gained weight in that same month. So, I am back to this food. It truly works and is keeping my dogs very happy and healthy. It’s up to me, to keep the extra snacks away.

Great for weight reduction and control

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My dog Dixie was boarder line obese. After gradually changing her food to Royal Canin weight control she was able to loose about 4 pounds over a three month period. Within the first month, Dixie looked less bloated in her abdomen and her energy picked up with a little more pep in her step from the change in diet. I am truly amazed that by just changing to a food with a lower fat content but still feeding the same amount of cups a day showed the results it has!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Royal Canin its a great brand and the products are amazing. Both of my dogs love the weight control dry food and it helps them to not gain weight since both of them are not very active. Great products i love it i will continue buying.

Very pleased

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My Bull Mastiff really enjoys this food and it has helped her with her coat and skin, which was an unexpected bonus, as she was abandoned and in bad condition with mange when she was found. Since her adoption, she has gone from strength to strength. My other dog also enjoys it and has amazing skin and a great coat too. Eeally pleased so thank you.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have 3 small breed dogs that constantly need weight management. Since being on this food, they've lost weight and are keeping it off.

I bought for ack Russel 6 yrs old and 6 lbs over wgt . First 2 months she went into depression as she would not eat it as it stinks.Then told my vet so she suggested heating something to over come the smell . So cut up chicken breast or deer burger cubes & squeezed it into this diet chow to get her to eat it. 4 -5 months now and only 2 lbs wgt loss and at a stand still.

great food

I bought this because my puppy is getting a little fluffier than he needs to be. I was worried he would not eat it but he loves it
