Great food, but too expensive.

We love this food and have been using it since we transition from the puppy brand. Unfortunately, it went up from $70 a bag to well over $95 a bag. Very expensive. We are going to need to find another option.

Loved the food, difficult in finding it available

Low supply in stores, breeder contacted us about alternative foods that are less expensive but equal in quality

Great food for our goldens

We have been using this food for our 2 goldens who are 4 years old. It has never given them any digestion problems and their coats look amazing. My one complaint is that the bags sometimes are more vacuum sealed and sometimes less. I wish they were always vacuum sealed tight. They are never open just loose in the bag sometimes.

Amazing Results!

I switched to Royal Canin (from Blue) a couple of months ago at the recommendation of my Vet. So glad I did, as I have seen an incredible difference in my 8 year old Golden. Before Royal Canin, his energy level was low, coat was lackluster and eyes appeared cloudy. Cannot believe the difference in our 8 year old!! He finally plays (really plays!) with our 18 month old Golden, which she needed. His coat is soft and shiny AND his eyes look clear and healthy!! Thank you Royal Canin for such a great product!

Great to hear he is doing so well!

The proof is in the pooping!

I just switched to this dog food and from the moment I opened the bag I was impressed! My two Golden's love the flavor! After a few days of adjusting to the new food, their poop tells me everything I need to know. They are pooping fewer times each day and less is coming out. This dog food has more nutrients to absorb and less waste to get out. As a dog mom, this makes me feel so good to know I have finally found a healthy dry dog food!!!!

Great feedback, thank you!

Vet Recommended

As a practicing small animal veterinarian, I recommend Royal Canin breed specific diets to my clients looking for personalized nutrition for their pets. I personally feed my two Golden Retrievers the Golden Retriever Adult formula. I've found that it keeps my dogs' coats beautiful while managing their caloric intake. They love it, tolerate it well, and I am happy with Royal Canin's commitment to science and quality.

I have been giving my boy this food since he was a puppy and now I can’t find it any where! All the pet stores say that they are not getting the product from your company. I’m on 3 months of searching for my boys food. This is great dog food for my Golden, but now I have to change his food. Please help me understand why this is happing?
