Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Gastrointestinal High Energy canned dog food 13.6 oz - Loaf in Gel (24 cans/case) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful diet I have a rather skinny Great Dane with a sensitive stomach. The slightest changes can set him off. I had him on the dry GI HE so he got GI support but got some weight on him and he did great with that. When I tried switching him back to Adult food he didn't want to eat it because it wasn't as good. He lost some weight and despite my slow transition, he started to have loose stools again. I then started adding the canned food into the adult dry. He loved it! He eats every bit of his food, has no sign of diarrhea, and has gained weight. It even seems like he isn't as sensitive to diet changes and treats anymore. It is wonderful and I will always have a stack of the cans for him to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the trick! We have a young Shih Tzu, Peace, who is the cutest puppy in the world! Our problem is she is not at all food motivated. That makes for taxing times during training but more taxing times trying to put her on a regular feeding schedule...and thus a regular potty schedule. We never knew when she would eat! We offered her food at the same time everyday. Sometimes she ate it; most of the time she didn't. Our vet said Peace needed to gain weight and prescribed the Canine Gastrointestinal High Energy. Our vet only had the cans (we have since ordered the dry but haven't tried it yet) so that's what we offered our dog. She snarfed it up! FINALLY, we can put her on a regular feeding time. And hopefully she'll start gaining weight. Thanks, RC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver Right about the time our little yorkie Buddy turned 4 yrs. old, he got gravely ill. He quit eating, was vomiting, had diarrhea, and to top it all off, his skin was bright red from head to toe. Over the next month, Michigan State University Small Animal Hospital would do some tests, keep him a few days to get him stable with IV's and whatever food they were giving him, then would send him home only to have him relapse a few days later. This happened 4 different times during that month and during all this, Buddy lost half his body weight and had us preparing for the worst. Finally, and after exhaustive testing, they finally had the cause, which was lLmphangiectasia compounded with a severe case of Vasculitis. If Buddy was to survive, this meant that he had to be on a very restrictive diet from now on. MSU started him on a competitor's prescription gastrointestinal diet, which Buddy ate but obviously didn't enjoy. He ate just enough to satisfy his hunger but that was about it and he was not showing any real signs of improvement. We were gravely concerned that he would not bounce back and that we could lose him at anytime. A couple weeks later during a follow up visit, our local vet then suggested we try Royal Canin Gastrointestinal HE. It was obvious we needed to try something so we figured what did we have to lose?. As we transitioned Buddy to this new food over the next few weeks, you could tell things were finally starting to change. Buddy's appetite increased a LOT! He became more alert, was starting to put weight back on, and his activity levels were beginning to increase. Within just a few months, Buddy was once again back to his old self! His skin cleared, his energy levels were thru the roof, and his weight was almost back to normal with no signs of his condition. But the best part of all this is when we jump forward almost 9 years from that unforgettable sadness. We are extremely happy to report that Buddy is STILL a thriving, active, alert, and happy Yorkie looking forward to his 13th birthday in just about a month! Thanks Royal Canin, we really don't think Buddy would still be with us without you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gi High Energy Diet I started using this when my dog wouldn't eat his dry food and lost weight. He is sensitive to new foods, so a GI specific diet is very helpful, but most are a low fat, so this higher calorie for his great dane growing body is great! He is nicely gaining weight and loving his food again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from palatable but not my first choice for my dog I have show dogs and have many years dog experience. For an older dog with episodes of GI upset, my vet suggested I try this product when problems appear. Had been using Science Diet ID (I generally hate Hill's products but that one works). I am able to give the ID without weaning her into it, with no diarrhea or other signs. On 2 different times I tried this RC product and she did have looser stools both times. She ate it with interest, but not with gusto. An RC product I DO recommend is Mother and Babydog, which I could not find on your list of 234 items. I would have given that 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome! I have a Shih tzu and a Yorkie, and they're very picky. There are very few things that they like. Well about a month ago my mom recommended that I try and give them some Royal Canin, and gave me one of her cans for them to try. They absolutely loved it, and have been eating it ever since. Since they've been eating it I have also noticed that they don't have the stomach problems that they've had with other brands of fog food. I'm so glad this was recommended to us, and that we decided to give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food on the market My dog used to have constant stomach problems. The veterinarian recommended this food and she loves it!! I have been using it for over three years and recommend it to anyone who has stomach issues with their dog. I would not buy anything else.
