Wonderful food!

As a Clumber Spaniel breeder of top show dogs it is important to me to keep my dogs coat in the best condition that I possibly can. I strongly believe that Royal Canin Sensitive Skin has help to contribute greatly to this. I have had all my dogs on this food now for several years and I am extremely pleased with the results. If you feed a good food you do not have to add supplements. So therefore I highly recommend this food!

Worked wonders!

I switched my newly adopted senior dog to this diet after having very itchy, dry and red skin. Within a few weeks the irritation has completely went away and she has stopped itching. As a veterinary student I love knowing that Royal Canin is backed by research and the diets are safe and effective for my pets!

After my dog’s bad skin flares, i decided to try out the sensitive skin diet and it worked miracles! She’s an Am. Staff so she is already prone to bad skin reactions but with this diet, her skin has improved and she no longer scratches her self. I definitely recommend this diet to everyone who asks me how i got to tame my dog’s skin condition. Two thumbs up!

Seeing improvement!

My dogs have been on this food for just over a month... skin & hair coat are already showing improvement! Especially helpful since one of them can not take fatty acid supplements outright since they cause her GI upset!! Great product! They will be on it from now on!!

Such a help to my dogs!

Both of my dogs are prone to skin allergies. I’ve noticed such a change in their skin since switching. It’s been a life saver for them and has cut down on vet visits and costs for me!

I was going to purchase this product for my older, large breed dog. However the ratio from omega 6-omega 3 is a little higher than I would like. How is this supposed to support healthy joint mobility when Omega 6's create an inflammatory response in the body?
Royal Canin response
We formulate our diets to have optimal levels of nutrients including omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The ratio is not as important as the amounts.
