Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Calm dry dog food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Food This food literally brought peace back into our house hold. Im a veterinary technician that has tried everything for my Chihuahuas behavior issues. It has been a daily struggle for 9 years, we were 1 step away from putting her on Prozac. After starting the Calm diet Mias personality has changed for the better. She's playing again, not urinating or defecating in the house or biting at people, and wants to be part of the family again. And she just seems generally happier which is the best part. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of a treatment plan that worked! Our dog has been on Calm for about 2 years now. He eats it every day, and gets occassional tiny treats of other foods. Together with the tranquilizer and anti-anxiety drug it has literally saved his life. His anxiety caused him to be very aggressive to people outside the family, and he even drew blood twice -he tried to attack toddlers ... We tried EVERYTHING in terms of training and this did not work - then tried medication and diet change in addition: THIS WORKED. So very, very grateful for this food as we really love our dog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! So thrilled to see how this product helps nervous pets . Will highly recommend to everyone. This really works. Absolutely love this food and that it is a safe alternative to drugs. They need to use this food in shelters!!! If your looking for a food to donate totally recommend this one as it will help cats and dogs relax and give them a better shot at being adopted because they can chill out and show their real personalities. Love how this helped my doggie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for dogs with high anxiety My dog has a lot of stress and anxiety in her life. With this food I have seen a difference which is pretty amazing! I will never feed her anything else. Royal canin makes such high quality food. I hope one day they will make this food in a canned version. I highly recommend it to anyone with a stressed dog!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need bigger bags My dog did very well on this food even though he is out of the weight category. It is pricey but works well and I like that it has an S/O index. I did try to mix it in my dogs food to have the effects while saving money and it is an all or nothing food. Would like bigger bags for a better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My beagle mix has been a very picky eater and would not eat any dry food. She only wanted wet canned food. This product seems to have changed her hyperactivity and her finicky food choices. She does not bark like before and seems much more adaptable to her environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! We use Royal Canin Calm as a supplement to our dogs medication. The food seems to do a good job in keeping her mood a bit more even and predictable when used in combination with medication. It's good there is a natural food solution available for animals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pet food company available! I highly recommended asking your vet about this food if your dog has any anxiety! I have fed my Shih Tzu Royal Canin since she was a puppy at the recommendation of my vet and she has been a healthy little girl ever since! She does have anxiety and my vet told me to give this a try and I have to say that I'm so glad I did! My personal opinion is that any of the Royal Canin varieties are the best you can get!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS I have a young male pomsky with extreme anxiety (on Prozac) and this is the ONLY food that has made his poo solid! It is prescription food and a little pricey, but worth it to us. My only complaint is the size of the bag! 8 pound bag is as big as it comes!! I haven't been able to find it in a larger bag...please let me know if comes in a 20/30/40 pound bag. Thank you:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I use this for my corgi & great pyrenees, both of whom are rather jumpy. It works great, & I really would like to see a canned version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Girl!! I adopted a chihuahua that had a lot of anxiety the she showed by hiding and inappropriate urination. I really did not want to put her on medication for it so I decided to try Calm. Since being on Calm she comes out to meet company and the inappropriate urination has all but disappeared. Much happier girl and a much happier dog mom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kibble is perfect size I have a hyperactive 3 year old miniature poodle who finds it difficult to settle down. My vet gave her an injection to calm the licking, itching and overall behavior. He also suggested I try Royal Canin Calm. I’m sure the injection has long worn off as this was several months ago and I see improved behavior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quite dog Thank you Royal Canin for this amazing product. This has changed my dog after only two bags. He is calmer and doesn't bark at everything. He has a lot less anxiety now. Even people who come to visit us have commented on how much more relaxed he seems. I highly recommend this food to anyone with a spaz dog!
