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!

Solved our problem

After dealing with a diahrea cycle issue with a 3 year old GSD for over a year and adding things and eliminating food items and many Veternarian visits to figure out the problem, I went online for a live chat. Told her of the history and said I would prefer an OTC solution if possible. So we went with the Large Digestive Care dry and she has now been “normal” for over 6 weeks!! Longest time ever! So happy with your help and your food.

Happy Pups, Happy House

We have 3 dogs, all S/F: GSD (2yo), Siberian Husky (4-5yo), and Pit Bull foundling (4-5yo). We were doing the grain free fad thing until I read the horror of DM-DCM, and immediately set about going to a trusted brand that met both AAFCO feeding trials and WSAVA recommendations. Royal Canin is what we keep in our clinic, and I did some of the videos on nutrition and was immediately swayed to try it out. All 3 girls have had MUCH better digestion since! My pit used to have terrible gas, would empty the room, and borborygmus... not anymore. Our husky used to ignore food and beg for human scraps but this is palatable enough that she does in fact eat it with little convincing. She's actually happy to see me go for the food bin! And my GSD, which I have been told GSDs are famous for tender tummies (have had 5 and never noticed except one with food allergies), has great BM... All 3 girls might go once or twice a day, max. No excess stool, flatulence or any other signs of upset tummy.

Great to hear that they are all doing well!
