Product Information

Exclusive Kibble
The kibble's shape, size, texture and formula are adapted to the German Shepherd.

Digestive Performance
A longer colonic transit time, plus a higher colonic permeability in large breed dogs, can lead to more fermentation and poor stool quality. German Shepherd Adult contributes to supporting this breed's sensitive digestive system with highly digestible LIP proteins and a selection of specific fibers to limit intestinal fermentation and to help maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

Healthy Skin & Coat
The skin and coat reflect the dog's state of health. Appropriate food plays an important part in maintaining the quality of the skin and coat. The German Shepherd 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 & DHA).

Bone & Joint Health
The lively temperament of the German Shepherd dogs leads to hard working joints. The German Shepherd Adult formula helps support healthy bones and joints and helps maintain ideal weight. Enriched with EPA & DHA.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Breed Health Nutrition ® German Shepherd Adult dry dog food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 251.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic nutrition!!!! I originally used the German Shepherd puppy food you have and the breeder used. I then switched to the adult German Shepherd food. My dog has been on NOTHING different and will be 7 yrs old in Sept. He is the 4th German Shepherd I've had. All others were on other foods and all had severe hip problems. This dog is the healthiest pet with excellent hips, skin, hair, etc. My vet cannot believe he's this healthy and while he can't carry the regular food because if me they began to carry all prescription food you make. I THANK YOU for all you put into the products affording me the greatest joy of my life.. My dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dogs Are Thriving! We have been feeding our dogs the Royal Canin German Shepherd Adult dry dog food for as long as I can remember. They thrive on it! They are healthy and happy dogs. We often get told how beautiful our dogs are, and we attribute part of that to their well balanced diet. Their coats are beautiful and their bodies are strong. Kaci is 12 years old, and is still vital. Could we purchase cheaper dog food? Absolutely! However, in this case, I believe we get what we are paying for and it shows in our dogs. They are not just our pets, they are family, and they deserve a good, quality food that will let them live a great, quality life. You provide that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food she protects! We have been using this food for about 4 years. Our Lily came to us at about a year old. She was malnutritioned and in need of some TLC. For a short period we thought we'd try a different brand, the kind that was given to us when she came to love with us, but that was a mistake. Sure, she ate it, but was soon itchy and losing her fur! We quickly got her back on this formula and the itching stopped and her fur came back in. She has not been fixed yet and I notice the weight she loses during those times. But this formula quickly replenishes all she loses. This is the only food she growled at our cats if they get around it... It seems they like it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Product! Royal Canin has gotten us through all walks of life from puppy to now 3 years old! When we moved towns, the first pet store we visited didn't supply Royal Canin so we tried a different food for a while. Our dog was ALWAYS scratching, had a significant increase in the amount of hot spots, and just generally suffered from the artificial and processed ingredients in other name brand foods. We quickly switched back to Royal Canin and have not had any problems since! We are customers for life, and love the breed specific products to keep our dog happy, healthy, and well-nourished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Food I have a 4 year old German Shepherd. He is European working stock and has a very high work/prey drive. I had been feeding competing foods that are very high quality brands, but he would always have "cow flop" stool. Fecal tests were all negative and he does not have EPI. I came across the Royal Canin German Shepherd formula and decided to try it. After completing the food switching process, the mushy poop issue went away and hasn't ever returned! I also like the kibble size and shape as it forces him to chew it, thus reducing the risk of bloat. He goes through a 30Lb bag in about 3 1/2 weeks and it's very expensive, but SO WORTH IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the Perfect Food My German shepherd had problems with several other brands of food. Apparently this was not uncommon for German shepherds. I have been very happy with this food. My dog loved the taste from day one, and even begged for individual pieces like he wood for treats. He often had runny stool before he started the Royal Canin but now it is firm. Formally, he would pick at his food but now will regularly finish the entire bowl soon after it is poured. He is healthy and has filled out nicely after we switched to this food around the time he was 3 years old. He is now 5 and I couldn't be happier with Royal Canin for German shepherd adults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diva Approved Every morning Luna would throw up. After running tests vet said she had a sensitive stomach. Started a strict diet (no people food) and she was still throwing up. She also always looked underweight. After doing some research I decided to slowly switch her to RC german shepherd dog food. Within days throw up stopped. Four months later no throwing up and she doesn't look under weight anymore. Thank you for a product that improves her quality of life!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only choice for our family dog! Our long haired white German Shepard has a very sensitive stomach. Every food we gave him did not process well for him and he is a very finicky eater. After transitioning him to Royal Canin for German Sheppards two years ago his health has greatly improved! His weight has risen from a paltry 52lbs up to 77 lbs and his stomach never has issues on this diet! He finally enjoys his meals and is healthier than ever. Thank you Royal Canin for your German Sheppard specialized food, our dog can now live a physical active lifestyle that he did not know for the first 4 years of his life!
