Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Veterinary Care Nutrition™ Canine Development Puppy Large Dog dry dog food 22 lb bag is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great and tastes great too! I actually accidentally received this product at my veterinary hospital a couple of months ago. Must have been fate because a stray puppy wandering the streets was dropped off at our hospital not long thereafter. I started her on this diet as one of her primary foods based on her appearance. She was only 11.5 pounds but looked like she had potential to grow. The Royal Canin Wisdom Panel actually indicated that she was 50% German Shepherd. Still a puppy but now over 30 pounds she still cleans her bowl three times a day. No finicky behavior where this diet is concerned. Color me impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy food June 15 2016 We have a 5 month Bernese Mtn Dog who has been on this since we got him at 7 weeks old. He is doing beautiful on it. He seems to be really smart and has a beautifully developed body. His adult coat is just coming in and it has a beautiful sheen to it. We have not experienced any diarrhea or other puppy problems related to tummy troubles. Only problem we have encountered is the vet does not stock large quantities so we have to make sure we order well in advance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Puppy Food! I had my black lab puppy on a grocery store food for the first month I had him. That food made him gassy and his coat was dull. I decided to try Royal Canin's puppy formula and the difference was amazing! No more gassy lab and his coat! His coat is shiny and beautiful. Love this food! Currently transitioning to the adult large breed and I am just as impressed.
