Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog finally happy with food! My dog got diagnosed with Liver disease and the options for diet are really limited. She is also quite old and does not have very many teeth left which also makes dry food not possible. We tired another brand and we nearly had to force feed her, it was so sad and we thought we ran out of options. Now we always get Royal Canin because she gobbles it up, and the price great for how many servings we get out of each can. Her energy and overal spirit is much improved. Thank you Royal Canin!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treat Saver! My Lab has to have Hepatic food, this is the brand she prefers. We purchase the dry for meals and the canned is baked for treats. We spread it out on a cookie sheet with parchment paper, bake at 320 for about 90 minutes. We store it in the refrigerator. You wouldn't want to have a dinner party on the same day! This is the only treat besides turkey she can have. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it Both my small rescue dogs have liver problems. The vet put them on this diet and they both love it. I never have any problems getting them to eat! After being on this food and taking their medicine their liver numbers have improved greatly. Thanks for a good tasting dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This saved my puppy. Spock, my puppy, was diagnosed with liver shunt at 11 weeks old. He was nearly gone by that point and we were beside ourselves. The vet we took him to had seen shunt before, and did blood testing to confirm, then fed him this food. In 48 hours, we had a different puppy. He is now 14 weeks old. He went from 3.8 lbs at 11 weeks, to 7.2 pounds today. Spock has a long road ahead. On August 8, we take him for a CT scan to confirm the shunt diagnosis and locate it. Then, we determine whether surgery will be a successful plan. Regardless, Royal Canin food will be our go-to for his life. The first photo is of him, sick, not asleep, on the vet table when we nearly lost him. Two days earlier he had been fine - launched himself into the pool, played hard, etc. - the next day he started downhill, refused to eat and slept all day. We thought he'd played too hard the day before; the next day he ate well but then started acting drunk (the vet called this "star gazing" and said it is the #1 sign of shunt). The next day he was on the vet table - picture. The you-tube video was taken 2 days ago - 7 lbs. and a bundle of puppy energy! We use the dry food for his training treats (2 1/4c. training treats/day) and the wet for his 3 meals/day (1 can/day). Yes, this is ALOT of food. He is growing like a weed. This week was the first time we did not feel every rib, hip, and collar bone on his body. He actually has meat on him! Can someone give me a way to contact the inventor of this food to send him/her a thank you card? And a virtual hug! Also - if you can come up with tiny treat version of the dry for training, that would be awesome! Our training is limited to the number of pellets he can eat and not become obese. :-) (Note - Spock is a mini-goldendoodle. His mom is AKC Golden Retriever; his dad is AKC toy-poodle.
