Great Outcome

This product worked great with my 6 year old male Airedale. Unfortunately due to Covid, the plant stopped producing it and could only recommend the adult dog food, not specialty. Obviously I changed to digestive care because the adult did not help. I had to change brands completely. If it ever becomes available again I would recommend it.

The best thing for my baby stomach

My dog has been on this dry food and was doing very well for 2 years . Even though she also gets the wet food (gastrointestinal low fat) it’s not enough. My baby has been experiencing stomach problems for the last couple of weeks . Please bring back large digestive care dry food.

Out of stock!

My hound has been on this food for 3 years and it really helps his sensitive stomach. It is now out of stock everywhere and I had to buy the regular adult dry. His stomach was doing much better on this food. Please restock!

Why can't I find this food?

Did Royal Canin stop making this formula? I switched to this food after my Sheppard had some major stomach issues and he is doing. great. The only 'not great' thing is if you stop making this formula.

Out of stock everywhere

My dog was doing well on this, but it suddenly went out of stock everywhere. I'd suggest another company that can keep a supply chain going.

Solved our pup's digestive issues!

After going through several different (expensive!) food options for our dog (a lab mix rescue) and dealing with an assortment of digestive issues, we tried this food based on a recommendation from our vet. It has been amazing - no more issues! Can't recommend highly enough.

Always go back to Royal Canin

Since the local stores have reduced the amount of Royal Canin they sell I decided to try another big companies new digestive food. Well....I tried a long 2 month switch and it didn’t work. Back to Royal Canin! I’ll just have to be sure to keep an extra bag in case I can’t get it on line. I prefer to get it in the stores. Petco carries it, but usually gets 1-2 bags at a time. Quite often it’s gone when I go in the store. I’ve got all three of mine on this food.

My husky has been on this for 4 months now and her diarrhea has stopped but I still have to ration her water intake. I must say she finally looks healthy and happy and seems nutritionally satisfied

Digestive issues SOLVED!!

We have spent a year, a whole year, trying to find a food that our dane/lab mix could eat that would not result in soft stool/diarrhea. We have tried 8 different foods (and he happily ate them all) but none of them gave him a solid stool so the vet was convinced our dog had pancreatic disease. After reading the reviews about this RC DC, we gave it a try, and within 3 days, he had PERFECT stools!! We are sooooooo happy we found this food. He enthusiastically eats it, NO GAS, NO stomach gurgles, and SOLID stools we can actually pick up. Hooray!
