SKIN AND COAT HEALTH: EPA and DHA nourish skin and a healthy dog coat

SPECIALIZED KIBBLE: Highly palatable large dog food kibble is specially designed for large adult dogs

Large breed dogs are treasured for being hard working animals and loyal family companions. Whether they’re on the job or playing in the backyard, they lead active lives. Their large bodies benefit from a size-specific diet that can support them with the energy they need, to maintain strong joints, and nourish a healthy skin and coat.

Royal Canin Large Adult dry dog food (formerly Maxi Adult) is tailored to support your big dog’s active lifestyle. This exclusive formula contains an optimal balance of high-quality proteins and fiber for optimal energy and digestive health. And because large breed dogs put a lot of stress on their bones and joints, key nutrients are included to help keep them playing. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, help promote your dog’s coat and skin health. Plus, this diet’s exclusive kibble is designed for large jaws, with a palatability that’s sure to please. Add some variety to their bowl with Royal Canin Adult wet dog food. And when your dog reaches 5 years old, switch over to Royal Canin Large Adult 5+ to fight the first signs of aging for a happy, active mature life.

Not for All Dogs

I've heard it was a good food for dogs, but our dog doesn't like it without putting some moist food and water to make gravy in it.

Newfie loves it, Pyrenees allergic

This food is amazing quality! We recently made the switch for both our newf and great pyr (giant breed was not available at the moment) and they both love it! However, shortly after Franklin, our Pyr started licking his paws, biting at his pads and tail and shaking his head. Needless to say, Ben will get all the royal canin while Franklin is on a food venture
