Product description

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.

Great food for my hypothyroid dog!

So far this food has been a great choice for my hypothyroid dog! After years of struggling to get him to lose weight I finally got him to an ideal weight and this food seems to be maintaining it. He loves the taste as well!

Success with weight loss and management

Overweight lab mix has successfully lost weight and is now maintaining her weight which is necessary since she had to have her knee repaired.

Great for Picky Eaters

I've been using Royal Canin products for years. As my little guy has gotten older, he's put on a few pounds and his vet recommended Royal Canin Maxi Weight Care. My guy is a VERY picky eater but he absolutely loves this stuff! Unlike other weight control foods, he doesn't turn his nose up at it and walk away. Instead, he eagerly waits for his bowl to be put down and gobbles it up. So far, he's dropped 2 lbs in the past month, which is a fair amount for a Tibetan Spaniel mix. I'm absolutely pleased to use Royal Canin products.

Awesome chow

I bought this for my dog’s health. My dog gained a lot of weight but didn’t think anything of it. Took him to the Vet clinic and they recommened it. My dog lost over 25lbs and doing great.

Great food for maintaining weight

We have a pittie who’s prone to weight gain. We keep her on this with a regulated amount and she gets all the energy she needs while maintaining her trim figure.

It actually works

My lab/boxer mix was VERY overweight weighing 80lbs at her heaviest! I simply changed her diet and started to feed according to the weight chart on the bag and in only 3-4 months she is down to 67 lbs and healthier than she has ever been! Losing the weight her activity level has increased 100%, she is so much happier and I know her hips are happy too! I wish I would of changed her diet sooner! This Royal Canin diet is amazing!

Fat lab finally losing weight!

I tried other good brands (Hill's, Purina, Iams). Without reaching for the more pricey veterinary therapeutic diets, this was the first dog food that started showing results. We cut out dog treats and increased exercise. Royal Canin was the first dog food where we followed the labeled recommendations and saw results. My fat girl has been successfully losing about 1% of her body weight per week. This is excellent, healthy weight loss. I am her veterinarian, and I now recommend this regimen to clients struggling with weight loss for their pets. We are excited to watch her return to her old, extremely energetic self! Yes, Royal Canin is a more expensive dog brand, but my dog's health is worth these results. Royal Canin is clearly doing their research to create dog foods for specific needs of individual pets.
