  • All RENAL products have similar nutritional profiles, easing the transition when introducing product rotations without concern for digestive upset

Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Renal Support A dry dog food is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dog will eat it! My dog has been on this for a couple of years, well, it was another formula before this one. It's great because my dog will eat the renal diet! I also use the canned food. However, it is very costly, and since the formula change,mother cost went up and it does not last as long. It is not available in a big sized bag either. My huge complaint for large breed dogs. Also, the food I fed prior to needing a renal diet had NO by-products in it as this one does. Nor did it have the fillers that this does. So, even though it is a specialty vet diet, I wish it had better ingredients in it, especially for the high dollar price. All that being said, my dog eats it and he would not eat other brands of renal diets. Thank you RC, and please consider bigger bags and no by-products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My dog used to like it more My 10 year old sheltie has had kidney disease for 3 years now. I have rotated through the various brands of the prescription diets. My dog has always been a picky eater, so she gets tired of them fairly quickly. She used to eat the Royal Canin Renal diet better before they started adding the letters to the title, so I am not sure if the formulation changed at that time or not. I can only find this product at one store in my town and they only carry the 17.5 lb bags. I have wasted a lot of food buying both dry and cans when my dog won't eat it. Now, I have to try and mix it with a non-prescription diet so that she will eat. It's not the best solution, but it's better than her not eating at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to read I started using this product per my vets suggestion.I rescued a male Dalmation from Ca in 2008. Several months later he was on death's doorstep and it was determined that he had a form of kidney failure. He was rail thin and could hardly walk and we had to make a decision to either euthanize or try and save. We put him on the renal support and 8 years later he is a happy, healthy dog who now weighs about 70 lbs. Even though the food costs me just over $60 a month I am so grateful that he is still with me. To see him play and run you would never know he was in such bad shape when I rescued him. My thoughts are that when you take on an animal you take on any and all financial obligations. D'Ryder is about the number 12 Dalmation that I have rescued, including deaf and health issue animals and I never regret giving them a loving home, even though in some cases they only live for a few months due to their health concerns. Thanks for making this product available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept Our Golen Retriever Bailey alive Our dog Bailey died last June but I believe that putting him on the royal canine renal dog food kept him alive a long longer than he should have been!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from New to the kidney disease Angus was just diagnosed with early kidney disfunction. Our vet suggested a renal diet, they wanted us to go with Science Diet but due to previous problems with that, I decided to try Royal Canin. When we received our first bag, Angus was licking the bag before I had time to open it. This is a great sign considering how picky he is with his food. I really wished it came in a bigger bag. 17.5 pounds is nothing for a 150 pound Rott!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trustworthy food for our fur baby!! My German Shepherd has always had issues with potential renal failure. We discovered this issue with her 10-12 years ago. Our veterinarian suggested Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Renal Support Dry Dog food and wet food, We do her blood work once or twice a year and after putting her on this food her blood work values have improved and have been maintained very well. We started her on this diet about ten years ago and have no doubts about the results. She is now 13 3/4 years old and continues to do very well as a result. We have two German Shepherds and feed them both this tried and proven diet. Wouldn't you do just about anything to keep your best friend healthy and happy. They certainly deserve it and so do you.
