This formula contains nutrients that help support healthy skin and coat.

Helps support large breed dogs’ healthy bones and joints which can be placed under stress by body weight.

Large dogs are treasured for their incredible working abilities, and prove to be wonderful herding, tracking, rescue, guard and assistance dogs. These powerful and devoted dogs can often suffer from digestive sensitivities, joint pain and even cardiac issues. Royal Canin LARGE dry dog food formulas address the needs of the large dog throughout its lifetime—from the large dog’s longer growth period, to nutrients to help limit inflammation of the joints and highly digestible proteins to ease digestion.

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.

Excellent for sensitive GI dogs!

I feel I've been through a lot of foods with my young male. Finally, I followed my vet's excellent advice and tried Royal Canin. I used the Maxi Sensitive Digestion/Large Digestive Care food because I feel he could use a little higher protein than the Medium Digestive Care food. He is doing GREAT on it!! So far, very impressed to have normal stool on this boy :)

My dog loves this food

Helped with his digestion and diarrhea. The quality seems pretty good and my dogs love it. Just wish it wasn’t so expensive. $66 for 30 lbs of a maxi bag.

Great product

Our Boston Terrier is on this food since he was about 6 months. He had issues with throwing up after eating. He is 2 years old now and has not had that issue anymore.

Happy Dogs

I bought this brand after hearing about the Taurine deficiency/DCM issues that have been happening. This brand is recommended by my vet. Although I was concerned about corn, my dogs both love this food and are doing great on it. Stool quality has greatly improved and their coats are soft and shiny.

Pekinese w/sensitive digestive system

We had been buying the mini sensitive stomach for our pekinese for years. We found that he was swallowing the smaller sized kibble whole creating digestive problems. Even though he is a small breed we went to the Maxi to force him to chew it before swallowing. This product is great for our Pekinese and Rat terrier.

Helps tremendously

On our second bag, and can definitely see a difference in our German shepherd. Her stools are more formed and regular, her skin itching has greatly decreased and she loves the food!
