Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! We have had my little dog for almost seven years and took six years to find food she could eat. We wanted to try vegan and our vet agreed. Then we found out she could not process portion. Thank goodness it worked. Just wish you would make it in smaller bites and in a smaller bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great food Bought this at the recommendation of a dermatologist for my dog with a liver shunt and food allergies. Made a world of difference in her coat and the degree of her itchiness without containing a lot of protein that would affect her liver disease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overal great Looked for good healthy food but not overpriced food for my furbaby. This was recommended and haven't changed for at least 4 years. She is ten now but no one ever believes me because she is energetic and healthy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cure After over two years of searching for the cure for my poor girls allergies and bladder stone issues, this food was it! She hadn't been on meds for either now in over a year- ever since switching to this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and prevents skin allergies We tried everything from shots to raw diet to prevent our dog’s skin allergies. Finally after a year of trial and error, our vet put him on this food and his allergies finally subsided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Gertie’s prescribed dry food My dachshund Gertie is prescribed the Urinary SO ever since she had bladder crystal surgery about 5 years ago. She still likes it and it’s kept the crystals away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy and Effective My staffie mix has severe food allergies - he can’t even tolerate the hydrolyzed proteins and will break out and lose hair and himself everywhere obsessively. I had him on Purina HA for a while, and then discovered he has a GI sensitivity to soy as well! He’s a mess. Since switching to Royal Canin Vegetarian, his food allergy signs have diminished! His coat is shiny and beautiful, he’s not itchy anymore, and to top it off he loves the food! We have tried a couple of other brands of vegetarian dog foods, but he would still have flare-ups. That’s when I learned about risks of cross-contamination with non-prescription brands, and that Royal Canin guarantees zero cross contamination. I love that I can trust this food. My only reservation with it is that the canned Vegetarian contains soy. But that does not affect us right now since he is doing great with just the dry. I also wish it came in a bigger bag, as it is only available in the 17.6 lb size, which lasts us about 4 weeks. Overall, we are very happy with this food! My pup is no longer suffering and looks so healthy. I always joke that my dog eats better and healthier than I do! Glad we finally found something that works so well for him.
