Product Reviews
Royal Canin Veterinary Diet ® Canine Selected Protein Adult PW Moderate Calorie dry dog food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than a diet food We have use RC dog food most of Molly's life, presently 9.5 years. We changed to this, PW, a few years ago because: a) Molly has an algerynto soy, which is in about everything - but this food, and b) it is a novel protein. So far this has worked out very nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food for my atopic dermatitis dog! This food was recommended to me by a dermatologist for my dog's atopic dermatitis. We had tried several foods over the years with no luck. As soon as he started this food his skin started to clear, and after a few weeks his skin was the best it's looked in years! His stool also improved, and he has had less gas. He's been on it for almost 2 years and is doing well. The only time we ever had an issue was when I tried to switch to another brand. It was a no go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating Food--pieces are too large and hard It is frustrating to be prescribed a food for a dog's health only to be unable to use it because the product is inedible for the pet. First, the individual pieces are too large for a small or medium size dog. The pieces are so big, I would think there are some large dogs that would have a hard time swallowing them. Second, as if the huge size of the pieces isn't enough, each piece is rock hard. My dog gets so frustrated trying to swallow and chew this food that he spits it out, and this is a dog who is extremely food-motivated. I believe that my dog cracked a tooth trying to eat this food. For all their testing and "science," I have my doubts that Royal Canin did real-world tests to see if middle-aged small dogs could actually manage to eat this. These pieces are impossible to break apart. Even my younger dog, who has all his teeth, has a very hard time eating this food. I have taken a hammer to the food pieces and I have to whack them with all my might to even begin to break them up for my dog. It is difficult enough trying to get the appropriate care and food for a family pet, let alone adding the waste of time and frustration of buying an expensive food that your dog can't eat. Avoid our frustration (and wasted time and money) and research another food for your pet. Newsflash for Royal Canin--small and medium sized dogs need prescription food, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality food product My dog had extreme food allergies.. She almost died from hemorrhagic gastroenteritis 4 years ago likely caused by something she ate.... After allergy testing , she showed reaction to over 200 food items... I was afraid to feed her anything... the vet recommended this potato/ whitefish based diet... We have had smooth sailing with no digestive issues since feeding her this diet... Thank you for a product I can trust....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for allergies! I have a chocolate lab who would break out in hot spots and get ear infections all the time. I switch to white fish about 2 years ago and it is the only food I will feed her now. She hasn't had one hot spot or even an ear infection since. I first tried the Large breed formula but she didn't like how big the kibble was so she is now on the smaller kibble and loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! My 10-year-old weimaraner has IBD and has always done well on a competitor's fish-based diet. Last year, she had a bout of pancreatitis so I called Royal Canin and they recommended this diet because of its low fat content. Bella did so well on this diet that I decided to keep her on it permanently. I couldn't be happier with Royal Canin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Blue Dobermans We have been using this for about 6 years. The previous RC dog food we used for our blue Doberman was discontinued and this was the next best for his skin and weight issues. Our dog loves it and he has had more fur and less skin infections while eating this food. Also very low in fat which is perfect for a dog susceptible to Pancreatis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from price/calories The price for your products are to high. Your adult PW calorie dog food is to high in calories. Your adult PW moderate calorie products do not have enough calories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coat Was given to us as a sample. Boxer had trouble gaining weight. Could see his ribs and spine. Had liver issues. Tried medication. After feeding him this for 5 months he went from 51 lbs to 63 lbs. His coat looks great and he doesn’t look like he’s starving. So pleased.
