Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition ™ Large Adult dry dog food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Kibble I have been feeding all my working German Shepherds the GS Royal Canin for 18 years now. They metabolize this food well resulting in less stool output. Also, they had diarrhea frequently on the other foods B-4 I started the Royal Canin. In the 2 yrs that I have had my current GS he has had diarrhea only once which was caused by soothing else. I also like the large kibble. They cannot “inhale” the food but will chew it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for sensitive tummies! My BMD has a sensitive tummy and this food is great! He was on the gastro formula from the vet for a bit as a puppy and we switched him to the Maxi Adult and he loves it and no tummy issues!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right ingredients for my GSD I used to have to feed my GSD a prescription diet food to control his allergies. So I thought. After several years spending $95 a bag I decided to do more research. I discovered Royal Canin Adult Maxi was perfect for him. The only criticism I have is the version for older dogs, has oats added compared to the original version and he can't have oats. Tomato Paste is in some and again he can't have that. Tomato paste shouldn't be in dog food anyway because dogs don't need tomatoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only the best My bear has had royal canin dry food from the moment he went onto solids. I have to say I am a first time royal canin user (always used other brands) but it is great. My boy loves it, he has great skin and his fur is soft and shiney (atleast when he hasn't been running through muddy puddles!) His growth has been steady and he has a good amount of energy without being hyper on additives. His doggy family also all love it. Definitely would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Halo the doberman Halo has been eating Royal canin since he was about 4 months old. I started him on origin, tried Frommers, Arcana, all the high end grain free dog foods. He had diarrhea pretty regularly until we switched to Royal canin at the vet's recommendation. It helped right away and we have stuck with it since. Switched to the adult formula when he was around 15 months. He is over 2 now and still loves it, has a shiny coat and is very healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! We have a 4.5 year old Weimaraner who was impossible to deal with for the first 3 years of his life. Being a veterinary technician, I did all of the necessary testing and monitoring to see what was wrong with the high-energy, high metabolism dog who refused to eat/gain weight and everything always came back normal. We tried 16 different types of food (no joke) to try to get weight on him and get him to eat. Finally, after beginning in a new clinic that was planning on carrying Royal Canin in-house, I got to talk to a rep and she recommended we try the Maxi formula. Usually, he would get halfway through a bag and quit eating (for two or three days he would REFUSE to eat anything since I tried hard not to cater to him), but we've been on Maxi for over a year now with no issues. Our other Weim is certainly not picky, but he loves the food and has had much better stool since switching. He also used to have a butt that could clear the entire level of th ehouse he was on and he has since not had it at all unless he eats something he's not supposed to. The 4.5yo is about 69lbs and the other is 77lbs; both eat 4 cups a day (they also either work or go to daycare all day), but I'm always surprised by the small amount of waste they produce. We're really happy with the food and I consistently recommend the entire product line. Having used it in clinic, I think the palatability of the RC foods are much better than 95% of the other Rx diets; specifically: we've had a few clients swap from Hills renal diet foods to RC with awesome results (especially in cats).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent food for my 77 pound goldendoodle My 9-year-old goldendoodle has grown up on different formulations of Royal Canin kibble--from baby to big-breed puppy to maxi adult. She loves the food (always gobbles it up), tolerates it very well, is in excellent health (according to our vet as well as anecdotal observations show), has lots of energy, shiny coat, clear eyes, etc. Her stools are small and well-formed, showing the digestibility of the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good ingredients, good product My vet recommend I buy this for my Doberman. He's been on it for a few months now. He seems to like it and it's got some good ingredients for him. So far I like this food for my dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs are super healthy A few yeas ago, a buddy of mine told me that one of his friends that was a vet said that there's no point in buying the more expensive stuff and that it was all the same. I asked my vet about this and here's what he said. "Your dogs are always very healthy so whatever you are doing, keep it up." What else did I need to know?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All in One Product I have 2 big dogs, a Golden Retriever mix and German Shepherd. I feed them both Royal Canin Maxi because of the added benefits of joint health, better digestion, less stools, and super shiny coats. This food is so filling for them. They love it, it is more expensive than the grocery store brands but well worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overweight Dog We have been feeding our 72lb dog Royal Canin for about 6 months now. He is very active and we give him the recommended amount of 4 cups a day. We just discovered he has gained 10lbs! Great food and we have no intentions of switching, the recommended amount just did not work out well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste We have been feeding our dog this for 6 months and can't believe that he still loves the taste of it. Every feeding he sits in anticipation and when we finally pour it into his bowl he goes after it as though it's his first time tasting it. We even use it as treats in his training!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality! Working in animal health, I know there are a lot of food options and diet fads out there for my pups. With Royal Canin, I know that my dogs' nutrition is backed by decades of research and science. There's no guesswork, I know I'm always getting the best quality nutrition.
