Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs *LOVE* this food My dog was diagnosed with diabetes a few months ago and my vet recommended a change in her diet so we started her on Glycobalance. Not only does she love it, but my other 3 dogs that are not diabetic (and the cat) also love it... so much so that they have all snubbed their regular food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glycobalance is an ackward title but accurate. I have an almost 15 year old Border Collie/Lab lady dog with Diabetes. Her blood sugars were a challenge to control but now that she is on Royal Canin , the blood sugars are in optimal control As she ages, Gertie is much more choosy about her food choice but, happily, she loves Royal Canin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adult dog loves this formula! My granddog loves the switch to this formula! Plus, it's been helping him maintain a healthy weight while helping his joints too now that he just turned a spunky 11-yrs. old. His doctor gives us the thumbs up for feeding him Royal Canin & that makes me feel good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less insulin! Our dog was diagnosed with diabetes a couple months ago. She was started on insulin right away. The vet also have is a prescription for Glycobalance. When we finally started her on the Glycobalance it helped to regulate her blood sugar so she doesn't have to have as much insulin! She also had a history of a sensitive stomach and she has been fine on this diet! We are very thankful for Glycobalance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love the taste! I have one diabetic dog, and he just loves the taste of this food. My other two dogs are not diabetic, but also enjoy the taste of this special food. They enjoy their breakfast and lunch eating a special diet food from Royal Canin. Thank you for making such a great tasting special diet food. Also, my dogs love a little spoonful of the canned special diet food to be mixed in with the dry. Yummy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Best Friend, Girl, loves it! My best friend, Girl, was recently diagnosed with diabetes. She is insulin dependent. We tried other brands of diabetic dog food, but then it was causing calcium crystals in her urine. The vet switched her to the Royal Canin Glycobalance. She loves it and doing good on it. I even make the canned dogfood and bake them into treats. Thank you Royal Canin for helping my dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Food for Fido :) I rescued my dog Charlie Brown on March 26th of 2006 the vet had estimated he was about 8 weeks old. Just after turning 10 years old this year he was ill, had lost almost 20lbs (was 75lbs) and couldn't keep food or water down, I was afraid he would not make it. He was diagnosed with diabetes on February 4th 2016. On April 3rd 2016 I discovered he was almost completely blind, a while later he did lose what little sight he had remaining. After being on another brand of diabetic dog food we switched to Glycobalance on April 6th 2016. He is gaining weight slowly and for the first time in a long long time his glucose is under 300. I am so happy we switched, also he and our other dog Zooey (everybody gets the same) love love love it. I am so grateful for his continued improvement, he is my "baby" and I am not sure what our family would do without him enriching our lives daily. Thanks Royal Canin for your fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves it. Our Boston Terrier Precious Piglet has been on the glycobalance dog food when she was diagnosed with diabetes about 3 years ago. She loves it. We love our girl Ms. Peegs more today than when we got her at 5 weeks old.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My dog likes the canned food I started using this product because of vet recommendation. He likes the can, but is indifferent with the dry food. He seems to not be gaining any weight. It makes him poop a LOT. Not a satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Harry's Choice! Harry stopped eating and began losing weight, he was diagnosed with Diabetes. Along with insulin, offering him a diet high in protein and fiber was the key to get his diabetes under control. I tried other name brand prescription foods, but Harry just turned his nose up! Then I offered Royal Canin Glycobalance dry, JACKPOT! Harry's b/g numbers began looking good, he stopped losing weight and overall began feeling like his old self again! Harry loves Royal Canin and so do I!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! My previous vet had prescribed my dog purina dco. Everyday was a struggle to get my dog to eat, I thought it was because of her diabetes that she suddenly just did not want to eat. I switched vets and he recommended Royal Canin glycobalance and my dog hasn't missed a meal since! Her BG has been regulated for the past two years Royal Canin has been a life saver, I don't know if I would still have my dog today if I hadn't found it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Lab loves Glycobalance! Took back $200 worth of Hills back to PetSmart today and traded in it for Canned and Dry Glycobalance...My dog Hated the Hills and was on a hunger Strike for a few days...The quality of the Royal is sooooo much better, right down to the small details like putting a zip lock seal on the bag! Hills deleted my post on their site , just told my true story and they didn't like that! Thanks Royal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price My dog has diabetes and needs to be on a special diet - Royal Canin has the right food at the best price around!! She loves it (as does my other dogs - shoo other doggies) and I can order via mail order so don't have to lug the big bags and boxes (of canned food) home - it is a big help for a arthritic widower!! Thanks Royal Canin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky dogs favorite food! I bought this product for the first time about two years ago when my 10 year old Shepard mix was diagnosed with diabetes. It's been a struggle to find a diabetic formula that my Lucy will eat regularly until we found Glycobalance. She loves the taste and I love that it helps keep her blood sugar and weight regulated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it! My dog was diagnosed diabetic a few years back when they told me he'd be put on "special" food I was worried. He's picky. He loved it, would beg for more. Even friends dogs who come over try to hoover it. Needless to say, over 3 years later, he still gets excited when I bring home a new bag. Thank you!
