Great for anxious pups

I have a dog who has been on a bunch of medications from trazadone to fluoxetine at one point or another due to a TBI . While on this food she did amazing. Only complaint is that there needs to be larger bag sizes 20/30lbs

It works plus my dogs love it!

We bought this food after the doctor recommended for my pup (5 year old baby) am due to his anxiousness, and we can tell you that it works!! It took about 3 weeks of use to start seeing changes.

Dog loves it, mellows her.

It is consistently fresh and nutritional. Dog lives it and it does have positive impact on dogs behavior. Great research, great product.

Dog won’t eat it

I have a small mixed breed dog with separation anxiety that drugs don’t touch. I can’t really tell if this diet helps because he refuses to eat it. He sniffs it, looks at me, then walks away. I mixed with with another food and he’ll take a few mouthfuls but tries to eat around this food. He hasn’t eaten a full bowl of food in a month since starting this food. If you have a picky eater, beware, this food is too expensive for how unpalatable it is.

I have a young male pomsky with extreme anxiety (on Prozac) and this is the ONLY food that has made his poo solid! It is prescription food and a little pricey, but worth it to us. My only complaint is the size of the bag! 8 pound bag is as big as it comes!! I haven't been able to find it in a larger bag...please let me know if comes in a 20/30/40 pound bag. Thank you:)

Quite dog

Thank you Royal Canin for this amazing product. This has changed my dog after only two bags. He is calmer and doesn't bark at everything. He has a lot less anxiety now. Even people who come to visit us have commented on how much more relaxed he seems. I highly recommend this food to anyone with a spaz dog!
