Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Gastrointestinal Low Fat dry dog food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 451.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pooch is looking and feeling great! After a low-grade pancreatitis scare, my vet recommended this food for my 10 year old mixed breed. She has been on it about six months now and is doing SO much better! Her appetite is back, she's able to keep food down, she's gained back weight, and she is just a much happier pooch all around. I've attached a photo of her enjoying a recent warm summer day in our backyard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for older dogs We've been buying Royal Canin Canine Gastrointestinal Low Fat food for several years. Our dachshund, Chloe, had pancreatitis. She had problems with vomiting and diarrhea until the vet recommended this food. It worked so well relieving her stomach issues that we started feeding it to Buster, too. To our surprise, they both love this food and gobble down every bite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cured my dog's diarrhea No matter what I fed my picky eater mixed breed rescue, she had diarrhea off and on. My vet discovered gastrointestinal Royal Canin dry and canned food, the low fat variety. My dog has been on this now for about six months and has not had one episode of her bowel problem during that time. I feed my second rescue the same food and both are doing well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage This food is loaded with junk (brewers rice, chicken by-product meal, dried plain beet pulp, grain distillers dried yeast, sodium silico aluminate, monocalcium phosphate, fructooligosaccharides, hydrolyzed yeast). You can get a far, far better low-fat food OTC and for less money. The only reason our vet pushed this food on us is because she receives a stipend from RC to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this food My dog has a very sensitive stomach, i have tried everything... from grain free to high protein to all natural... None of the foods i tried has worked... she has been on this rx food since she was about 5 months old and i will say this has made her have great stool and she feels better all around. she is not under weight nor over weight. she has great teeth and i would recommend this food for anyone who has a pet like mine. Yes it is a bit pricey for the size bag but it is well worth it. only thing i wish is that Royal Canin gave out more coupons for the vert diets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible find! My 3 year old Havanese was the pickiest eater. One day he stopped eating suddenly and I tried over 50 different varieties of both wet and dry food over a 7 month period. In addition to not eating he vomited bile daily and as a result I had to put him on Pepsid which didn't help! I finally came to the realization that maybe he had a GI issue causing him to stop eating. Upon doing extensive food research I decided to put him on Royal Canin LF Gastrointestinal Veterinary diet. Voila! He is eating again and off the Pepsid because the vomiting stopped as soon as he started eating the Royal Canin. I highly recommend this particular food because it literally saved my dog's life as well as my sanity. Thank you Royal Canin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dry dog food Our Veterinarian recommended this dog food after our miniature schnauzer started having digestive issues with his top rated name brand dog food. He gave us a month supply to try and we have been on it ever since, 4 years now. We also add a teaspoon of the same brand canned food to his dry food. We feed him half a cup twice daily in addition to good quality treats. He has never had tummy issues again and his weight stays constant. The cost is only $ 10.00 more a bag and it is made in the USA and we have not been back to the veterinarian again regarding digestive issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the day! My dachshund was continually have bouts of bloody stool. An ultrasound found nothing internal and no parasites. The last resort was to change his diet. Wow! This food has done wonders and I even give it to my puggle who also had a sensitive digestive system. Thank you very much for making my two pups better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more gas My Anny has Cushings Disease as well as issues with her digestive system. Her body's reaction to most dog food was a room clearing experience. This food is great! She has lost weight which was necessary for her health and no longer is so odorful. I sincerely thank you for this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love that my dog loves the taste and crunchyness My dog has something wrong with her pancreas and has a very sensitive stomach, so about 3 years ago she got very sick and our vet recommended Royal Canin, gastrointestinal low fat. She got well quickly, and that's all she can eat now. Our dogs name is Kasey Jade, and she is the sweetest little Min-Pin ever. My husband is on Disability and I don't currently work. Her food does get a little expensive, but it seems to be the only thing she can eat. We would love to have six months of free dog food!!! My husband is a disabled Marine Corps Veteran. Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this food, saved my dog's life! My dog has been on this food, wet and dry, for over 2 years. She has acute chronic pancreatitis. This is all she eats and she loves it. It has kept her pancreatitis in check and has saved her life. She was in critical care for over a week and should have died. Love this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my dog's life! My pet, Niko, had a severe case of pancreatitis last year, many days and treatments later along with high vet bills, brought us to your food and diet. After not wanting to or feeling like eating due to the illness, we offered our pet the moist canned version and he loved it and ate it up right away. Started to incorporate the dry food with the wet food, and no thats all he eats every day twice a day. And we're happy to say he's healthy and a happy dog!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from After an exhausting amount of trials, this works! My dog was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis, small intestinal disease with deficiencies in her B vitamins. I have tried every prescription "low fat, gi" or "sensitive" food and this is the only one that doesn't result in her having a vomiting episode after 6 weeks of starting the food. The only negative for me personally is that my 50 lb energetic boxer has to have 5 1/2 cups a day to maintain her weight. But like I said, she is a boxer so what do I expect?! (and this is more common with any food lower in fat and more bland, so it was to be expected anyway.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He loves it! Harley Davidson, my miniature schnauzer, has had 2 episodes of pancreatitis. Since being on the low fat gastrointestinal dry kibble he has had no problems. I also noticed that his white beard is no longer stained from the other kibble he had been eating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! Our dog has had two bouts with pancreatitis. Our vet prescribed the Royal Canin low fat gastrointestinal for him. He's been eating it and the canned version for several years. We have not had any more episodes of pancreatitis since. And he loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hit the jackpot!! My Maltese has a super sensitive stomach and we couldn't get her to eat anything or keep anything down. Our vet prescribed this to try and it was a success! Our dog loves it and digests it well! We will keep her on this, always!! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My vet put my 12 year old English Cocker Spaniel on this food after he had pancreatitis. I don't think he has ever felt better. Will never change. Plus, he has always been on Royal Canin dog food and it has always been so good for him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great food for tummy issue My pup has had issues with food since she got gastroenteritis when she was just two years old. The other brands of food and treats wreaked such havoc on her intestinal track that we almost lost her. Since then she has been on this Royal Canin Gastro food and has had no problems. She's a super picky eater so she doesn't like to eat the dry food alone, that's why I've only given it four stars. I have been mixing in the Royal Canin gastro wet food with the dry food and she's been eating it up! She's now 8 years old and doing great! Can't live without this food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This food changed my dog's life! My 14 year old Cocker was very ill with severely high cholesterol and skin lesions. He could barely walk or stand on his own. Medications were not helping him. My Veterinarian prescribed this food about 6 weeks ago with instructions to feed him nothing else. His recovery has been short of miraculous! His cholesterol has normalized, his skin has cleared and he is once again the happy, wiggly, active boy he used to be. And, he loves this food!
