Exceptional product

I bought this for two rescued golden retrievers. They had been fed a poor quality food in limited amounts. They were both underweight, had skin issues and sensitive stomachs. It’s been six months and I must say that they have put on weight, their fur is beautiful and they look forward to feeding time! What a change!

The best dry food for sensitive digestive system

We tried feeding my dog with many other types of dry food but none of them suit him and he kept having diarrhoea. The problem solved since we start feeding him Royal Cannie

Vet recommended

Started this food for my dog after the scare with the grain free diets and dilated cardiomyopathy. This was the dog food recommended by our vet specifically that addresses the ingredient taurine, lacking in other dog foods. My dog seems to like it and no GI upset issues!

My dogs love it !

I switched all three of my Goldens to this about a year ago when I moved them away from grain free food. I love that’s it’s formulated specifically for the Golden also. My dogs love the food also, which makes feeding time easier :)

Great food, backed by research!

We have both of our goldendoodles on this food (our senior boy has been primarily on RC low-fat gastrointestinal and we mix this in). Their health has been wonderful and coats are bright & shiny. We especially appreciate all the research and food trials Royal Canin conducts to ensure high quality products.

My Goldens Love it!

My 3 goldens love, love, love this food and they have for many years. Royal Canin has been making this food over 45 years and they perform research to make the best food for keeping our babies healthy. Heart healthy too! I appreciate that and it gives me peace knowing that they are eating the best possible food! Our old veterinarian, fed his goldens this food and they lived long healthy lives.

Always fresh with sealed bag design, my dog loves this food, healthy breed specific and diet specific food choices.

Absolutely amazing- thank you!

My purebred golden retriever had stomach issues. No vet could figure it out. My friend who works at royal canin spoke to a vet she sells to who suggested the gastrointestinal dry puppy food. Once my dog, Maverick, started on this food, all of his problems ceased. I have since eased him into the golden retriever dry puppy food and now the golden retriever dry adult food. I am so happy to say Maverick is the happiest and healthiest, and CUTEST most athletic friendly golden retriever there ever was- all thanks to Royal Canin!
