Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Gastrointestinal Puppy dry dog food 8.8 lb bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food to stop our Sheepadoodle's diarrhea! Fantastic food for a puppy diagnosed with Gastroenteritis! Our 5 month old Sheepadoodle had horrible GI problems and this food worked amazing! He loves the taste and had no problem switching food. I do wish it was available in a larger bag as he is 60 pounds and this 8.8lb bag does not last long. The kibble size it very small, he will inhale it and then choke, so we put 2 small tennis balls in with the food to help slow him down. Thank you Royal Canin, you have been a life saver!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gets the job done my only problem is that the biggest bag you make is 8.8lbs. WHY? I have a giant breed puppy and one bag only last a week? For $40 a pop thats ridiculous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Food, but always out of stock! This food has worked wonderful for my golden retriever puppy. However, it always seems to be out of stock online and in stores! Since he is a large breed, he goes through the 8.8lb bag so quickly. Petsmart in store, Chewy online, and Petco online are often out of stock. I love this food for him, but wish it came in a bigger bag and was more consistently in stock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice My vet gave me this for my 10 month old puppy who is experiencing hives and vomiting . She is a picky eater and would not eat until late afternoon and than late evening if at all , now she eats his morning and evening and licks the bowl ckeamB! No more upset tummy or hives , just wish it was made to be able to get without vet prescription at the pet store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Originally when I got my puppy Weezy he was on blue buffalo food & was not very interested in it. He was also unable to digest the carrots in his food & pooping immediately after he ate! When our vet switched him to this he has had no stomach issues whatsoever & is always so excited to eat & his food is gone within a minute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My vet recommended this food for my Husky who has major digestive issues. She couldn't eat any other kind of food without getting horribly sick. Once she started on this food she has been completely fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food that worked!! We are so thankful we found this food! We tried 4 other brands that just wouldn’t stop our Golden’s diarrhea. This has stopped it and kept it away for the last month!!!
