Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy coat! Jenny has been on skin support for a few years due to her allergies and her coat looks great. She is much less itchy and she has never looked better. She is spunky and active and it really agrees with her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for Atopic dermatitis Our Cairn Terrier will be 11 next month, and had been on this food for 5 consecutive years. He has Atopic dermatitis, Allergies to certain plants and other Environmentally caused “inhalant allergies”. After having been on this food for about 1/2 year, his coat improved tremendously and his stool became normal and consistent. After 5 years on this food his coat looks terrific And our Vet who put him on this food, is extremely please do with the results. He is off his meds as well. We are very lucky to have a great Vet and a food we wouldn’t change. RC science and research has paid off. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this food! When I got my yellow lab/golden retriever mix at 6 weeks of age I had no idea that I was going to face so many skin problems. Starting with demodex at 3 months of age and then constant itchiness for the next 5 years. I spent so much money on skin scrapes, food trials, medicated baths and so much Benadryl! nothing worked! Then I started working for a Veterinary office and found out about this food. I saw results instantly, literally not even half way through the first bag! His coat has never felt or looked the way it does now, he no longer itches and no more redness! I am so happy I have finally found relief for him. I wish I had learned about this sooner. I recommend this to all of my skin issue clients confidently and tell them about how well it worked for my guy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful haircoat! My dog was diagnosed with Addison's disease and has to take a steroid medication forever. Her haircoat became dry and brittle and her chest and abdomen became bald. Her veterinarian told me that the steroid was likely the cause and reduced the dose, but I put her on Skin Support also, thinking it couldn't hurt. Her hair grew back and it is soft and shiny. I know reducing her medication had to do with her improvement, but I am keeping her on Skin Support because she is absolutely gorgeous now. This product does not get the attention it deserves. Thank you Royal Canin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! We feed this to our Golden Retriever who struggles with ichysitosis. We went through several dog foods that only made his condition on worse. We were constantly having to a sweep the floor due to his flaky skin. Since starting This food, his condition is manageable! This is great as we have a baby on the way and as soon as it starts crawling, those flakes would be in the way! This is the only food that helps his skin. It is a lifesaver, although expensive for my husband and I. We feel it is important for our fur baby so we make up for it in other ways!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Canine Skin Support Issues We bought this on the recommendation of our Vet, for a French Bulldog with allergies. This worked great for her skin and coat - but it caused severe constipation and bloating. After both our French bulldogs were on in about two weeks, they both had very runny and small stool, and they strained to go, trying several times and only producing a few pencil-thin, inch or two long stool. And both become bloated with the inability go to the bathroom. We stopped feeding them the Royal Canin SS, and they were both back to normal within a few days.
