Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Gastrointestinal Puppy dry dog food 8.8 lb bag is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
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 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!
