Product Information

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

Healthy Skin & Coat
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 & DHA).

Healthy Cardiac Function
Golden Retriever breed dogs are prone to cardiac sensitivity. The Golden Retriever Adult formula contains specific nutrients to help support healthy cardiac function: taurine, EPA & DHA.

Ideal Weight
Excess weight gain can affect the health of Golden Retrievers. An appropriately balanced food is therefore necessary for their health. This formula helps maintain the Golden Retriever's ideal weight.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Breed Health Nutrition ® Golden Retriever Adult dry dog food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Diet! I have had my 4 year old golden on this food for the past year, and he loves it. As a vet tech, research assistant, and future vet student, I really respect the science that goes in to making these wonderful diets. I can't even begin to count the number of hospitalized patients that do so well on GI Low Fat in our practice as it is such a sensitive yet palatable diet. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Golden Retriever Food I bought this at Petsmart on recommendation from a friend........I was seeking "Golden Doodle" food from Royal I chose Golden Retriever as the closest match.......What I like is the ingredients seem to be fairly good......This is a good overall food. The dogs loved the taste......Some things that I would like to change are: I would love to see a Grain Free version......and I would love to see less crude fat, and even more protein..I would also like to see more deboned meat.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality My two year old Golden has been in Royal Canin dog food ever since she has been weaned. She lives it and is very healthy. There’s no way to tell if she would do as well in another more inexplicable endive food, but I’m not willing to take the risk. I believe this is good stuff and my Josie is worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the breed specific food for Golden Retrievers I’ve been using this for my rescue dog, Katy. I rescued her from a puppy mill. She was 8 years old, breed puppies from she could. She chewed her way out of her wire kennel, lost her canine tooth right side & escaped into the near by forest. She survived there for a couple of weeks, by her wits alone. Katy now hates thunder, lightning, storms, noise of any kind, and men for some strange reason. Katy is now 9 1/2 years old and a happy “pup” with me, and her brother Zen. I feed both Katy and Zen, Royal Canine Golden Retriever dry food. A big thank you from Katy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My golden loves this food! I have had Nala my golden retriever on this dog food for awhile. She switched from the puppy version to this. I haven’t had any issues with it at all. I know that it is specifically made for her, and don’t have to worry about the taurine leaves in this. With all this problems going on with the Golden’s and the grain free foods and DCM going on I know that she is getting the balanced diet she needs with this formal of dog food. Thank you Royal Canin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoughtful design The Royal Canin Golden Retriever Adult dry dog food is formulated for the health needs of our beautiful goldens. The design of the kibble is interesting in that it is much larger than usual kibble. Goldens are often voracious, fast eaters. This larger size kibble is causing my pup to slow down with his meal which I think is a good thing. The research team at Royal Canin gives me confidence for many reasons and this is only one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for my fur babies I started feeding royal canin about 7 years ago as a suggestion from a friend and fellow breeder. I am so very happy I did. Both of my golden retrievers are happy and so healthy. No need to ever add supluments or vitimins to their food, they get all they need from royal. Thanks royal canin. Sincerely Royal canin customer for life

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Specially formulated for the Breed Purchased this food on the recommendation of my Goldie’s cardiologist. The size of the “nuggets” is quite large compared to the food I had been giving my dog and it took him a while to get used to the size. I learned from my vet that these nuggets are designed to be this size to prevent the dogs from gulping their food. I think it’s effective. I no longer need to use the Slow Feed Bowl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Balanced Food I feed my Golden Retriever with Royal Canin since he was a puppy and he just love it. I believe that this is a great food, It has all necessary nutrients for a balanced feeding and let my dog's hair super bright. Furthermore, the feces are hard and with very little odor. The only thing that I think should be improved is that the food is not as natural as some other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We had tried so many different foods for my dog. He might like some of them for a couple weeks and then he would quit eating. Once I started trying royal canine dog Jack has never been happier. He loves the taste as well as how it makes his belly feel. He has a sensitive stomach sometimes especially since he has gotten older and this food is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bold friendly packaging I started this food when my show/performance girl stopped eating her previous food. She loved it and continues to love it, I love her coat, her muscle tone and over all healthy activity. I also like the fact that they add in taurine supplement since it is such a big issue with this breeds taurine levels associated with cardiac issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this brand! I’ve had my dog on Royal Canin Golden Retriever since I got him at 6 weeks and have loved it ever since. He’s not having the typical golden retriever allergies with it and his coat is amazing. I really like how the kibbles are huge so he doesn’t eat too fast and digests it very well along with keeping his stool firm

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My golden loves it. Just received this food last night after a recommendation from a friend. My dog loves it. For the first time ever he excitedly eats. Mixing it with his old food to slowly ween him over and he completely ate all the royal canin and left the old food. Now hopefully he will start to fill out his frame a bit more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have two Golden Retrievers. One is a puppy and one an adult. The breeder of the puppy highly recommended the Royal Canin product and we have been giving our puppy the product and decided to switch our adult over to the Royal Canin. Both dogs love the food and we are glad we made the switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food! I am a breeder of golden retrievers. My females were on a different food that didn’t cut it. Now their coats are softer and healthier and their body weight is just right. I am a customer for life! Thank you for all you do to keep their food healthy and right for the breed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jonesy loves it! I switched Jonesy to the golden retriever blend of Royal Caniin when he was a year old, and had experience digestive problems as a puppy. He just loves it, and will remind me every morning and night that I might have forgotten his meal. He seems to be very healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features I bought this three years ago for our Goldie to aid with hip displesia and joint problems. I rescued Lucy and at that time the vet thought she was about 8 or 9 mos old. She is now about 8 or 9 and is doing great. Thank you Royal Canin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nutritional value for goldens I have fed this brand since both my goldens were puppies. Of course starting with the puppy version initially. Both are now 2.5 yrs old. Doing well with their overall health, shine, and energy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time use..very satisfied Our aging golden and new golden puppy have both transitioned to RC, along with our maltese. Hesitant at first due to cost and having to buy three different types. They all like the food, no kibbles left behind. I have noticed a huge difference in the goldens coats. Puppy is very silky and our elder golden is getting a softer shinny coat than before. I am very happy with changing. Cost is the only reason I gave four rather than five. Buying three bags first time was close to $200

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best food yet I have tried so many foods on my labradoodle. This by far helps control his allergies more than any other foods. He can also eat the amount he wants to eat without getting fat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Goldens coats are beautiful My intact male English Golden has fairly coarse fur....unlike my Red Golden who has a silky, soft coat. After a few months on this his coat has become much healthier & softer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves it My boy was put on this as a puppy recommended by my vet because of some health issue he has since transitioned to the adult. He continues to do great on the adult formula.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Large We purchased this for our 100 lb golden and he refused to eat it. I think the size of the kibble is way too large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this product for about twenty years (we are on are fifth golden). I was especially pleased that there have never been any recalls on it and it is made in the USA. Their always look healthy and they have never developed any skin problems. I also use Royal Canin large breed puppy food and give our seven month old golden the adult kibble as treats. I love your product and have recommended many times to other golden owners. Keep up the good work! Judith Thompson
