Helped so much

I started buying this because my Papillon has terrible teeth she was receiving a dental every 6 months but even by then probably should have had them every 3 months. since we have been using this product it has been 4 months and she doesn't have horrible tarter build up. She also has urinary issues and it is great for that as well.

Big chunks

My dog loves eating this diet. Big chunks so he has to crunch and with a dental 6 mths ago he has been able to keep teeth looking good!!!

Best mix of quality and Research

I’ve been feeding Royal Canin for 4 years now and the diet keeps my Jack Russell’s teeth clean in between dentals and free from chronic UTI’s.

Great product!

I used to feed my Westie with Royal Canin West Highland Terrier food, but due his dental condition we decided to change to Canine Dental like two months ago. It was a really good decision. I can notice less tartar, his gums are healthier, and the best part is he enjoy his meal time. Also, no stomach issues.

Kept her Chewing!

I kept my dog on the food for about 3 months. She soon got tired of it and stopped eating is as readily, but I think that is just her personality- she gets tired of food easily. Maybe different flavors would be a solution?

Works great on their teeth

I bought this for my long haired dachshund because she her teeth get bad between cleaning. So our vet recommended this brand to me. So I tried it out with both of my dogs. And the dachshund loved it and I have seen a great difference in her teeth. They are half as what they were. Now my chihuahua was ok with it because it was too big for him mouth. He only has a few teeth left. But I am really happy with this product for my dogs.

It works!

My little dog had beautiful teeth when I adopted her a couple of Aprils ago. By January, her teeth were disgusting and needed cleaned as well as four removed. I switched to this food, and now 2 years later, her teeth are just now needing another cleaning. I would say that is an amazing difference! Royal Canin diets are the best- based on science and giving results.

My picky eater likes it!

My maltipoo has been on Royal Canin Dental for almost 2 years now. I wasn't sure if she was going to like it because she's very picky but she really does. We get ours from our vet's office.

Finicky Dog Loves It

My 13 year old beagle/jack russell mix loves this product. He has been picky when eating dry dog food and just recently was diagnosed with malignant Stage 1 melanoma cancer. He had surgery to remove this from his gums and we put him back on his regular dry dog food. He was not interested, so my vet suggested we put him on Royal Canin Dental for small dogs. He absolutely loves the taste and is eating more regularly now.
