ONLY food my Yorkie will eat

My Yorkie is beyond picky. She will refuse dry food and go on hunger strikes until I give her something else. She was on a raw diet for a while and loved it but started having major digestive issues. Vet recommended this food after all the tests came back clear. I thought she would hate it but she loves it. Loves it to the point where I tried multiple other brands after her digestive issues cleared up and she refused them. She will even eat this plain. In every bag I've bought, the kibble has been shiny and smells fresh, not dry and stale, so I think that's why she loves it. Not my first choice of what I'd normally feed, but if she'll eat it, I'll buy it. A lifesaver!

Chanel is Loving Life!

My 5 lb Maltese has been eating Royal Canin dog food since we brought her home at 4 months old. She was diagnosed with Pancreatitis about 2 years ago and has been on the Royal Canin Digestive. Since then, she has been doing Awesome and thanks to this formula, she is living life and thriving!

Small kibble that soaks well

I have been having Royal Canin digestive care for a few months and all of my 9 dogs are being fed it...I find the gas my French bulldogs used to get has subsided quite a lot which makes living with them alot more pleasant. My chihuahuas and my pug love it too so a big hit all round.

My Dog Had Sensitive Stomach Problems

The last and 13th year of my female Cairn Terrier's life I had her on the sensitive stomach formula to keep food in the body. I fed her in the morning and at 5 pm. I mixed small amount of canned food and water to moisten the dry food. This was so it would not expand in her sensitive stomach. She also took two cut down Prilosec pills a day for her size. We had an extra year together. She reached 14. I have her daughter on the small diet dog food now. She lost weight in two months and is healthier now.

My maltese has a sensitive digestive system and is not food motivated. So I was really pleased to find a dry food that he will eat!

Great food

After trying many expensive foods, I bought this one when they were out of the one I usually bought. It was another Royal Canine brand for small dogs. Well they liked this one better. It seems to have a coating or something on it which I guess they like. While they don’t have digestive issues, they seem to like it. They are Havanese and Havanese are know to be picky. Believe me they are. Here are Dooley and Molly. My spoiled, picky fur babies. We would love to win this

Robusto has been eating this for years.. I think it used to look different on the packaging and called Mini ... That has thrown me off a bit. Always have to take a double take at the Pet Store. Only food he will eat
