Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Veterinary Care Nutrition™ Canine Adult Small Dog dry dog food is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I started using this when we we got our first Boston Terrier and her coat was greasy, skin was dry and her overall appearance wasn't looking so good. We absolutely fell in love with this food and continued using it with the second Boston Terrier who at the time of adoption was emaciated, so greasy and not in good health due to his cheap kibble diet he was on for the first 6 years of his life. It is INSANE how much this diet has changed not only their appearance but has kept them very healthy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty goodness I wanted to get a good quality dog food for my Pomeranian/chihuahua mix. He's a rescue dog, so he didn't have the best start and was 8 months old when I rescued him in Oct 2015. I had heard what a good brand Royal Canin is, so I purchased the smaller bag of small breed since Oliver is the only pet and doesn't eat massive amounts of food. He's happy, healthy, and full of energy. I feel like Royal Canin contributes to this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Ask For Better I have 3 dogs, all small breed - 2 pekingese and a chihuahua. I have tried every single brand of food on the market, and then some. I started doing my own research and loved the research and quality control that goes behind every bag or can of Royal Canin food. I switched my crew over 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. Their coats are shiney and soft, their breath is improved and their poops are perfect! If I make any changes to my Small Breed Kibble/Adult Wet food combo, they get digestive upset. Love that my guys do so well. Thank you Royal Canin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Coat! I started using Royal Canin Small Breed Adult dry food over 2 months ago for my pomeranian and since switching from Purina Pro Plan - I have noticed a huge difference in his coat. The coat is thicker and more luxurious than it was previously. Also, he has not been scratching since being on this food (which had been everyday - even with flea meds and allergy pills). I don't have to use the allergy pills anymore but still keep him on a flea and tick product from my vet. I am very happy we decided to pay a little more for a premium dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food I have been using this food for both my small dogs now for over a year and I have had great results; both dogs love the food and maintain great body condition. I love that this food has the s/o index; I am always concerned about bladder stones and I love having a food that aids in preventing a form of crystals from developing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome food !!! My Mattie has been on this dog food for about a year and a half. She has allergies and takes allergy shots. This is the dog food she has to eat due to ingredients. And she loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust nothing else Our Abby has never eaten anything else. As a pet owner with past veterinary employment history, I would never trust the fly by night pet foods. Royal Canin is tried and true!
