Promotes digestive health and optimal stool quality with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics

High calorie content allows dogs to eat small meal portions and still get the nutrition they need

Enriched with a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers for healthy GI transit

Helps manage GI health with omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA

You’ve tried everything to help with your dog's GI issues, whether those are vomiting, diarrhea, or lack of appetite. And while bland homemade diets are often used for digestive upsets, your dog could be missing some key nutrients to help them fully recover. But with the help of your veterinarian and Royal Canin, there’s not just hope—there can be a true difference.

This palatable, digestible dog food supports digestive health with high fat and calorie content, so you can feed your dog small portions to support their sensitive stomach. This also helps underweight dogs or dogs who are eating less get the calories they need. A combination of highly digestible proteins and prebiotics helps maintain the balance of good bacteria in the gut. A blend of dietary fibers supports healthy digestion for optimal stool quality. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from fish oil help soothe the GI tract. And a precise blend of antioxidants supports a healthy immune system. Ask your veterinarian about pairing with Royal Canin Gastrointestinal High Energy wet dog food as a complement to your dog’s daily diet.

Dog food

I bought this food for my dog who has spina big USA and needs a special diet. We tried a few other things but this, with added fiber, he actually seems to enjoy. It’s a bit pricey but if he needs it he’ll get it!

Helped my adopted dog get his energy back!

Hi, I was asked by my Vet to keep my dog in this food! My dog named LEGO is my adopted dog! LEGO was giving up to my vets to be put to sleep as he had broke his femur in 2 places and the family did not want him or take care of him any more! But the vets just couldn’t put him to sleep and amputated his back leg to help him! I was just by chance coming into the vets to pickup my LadyBells ashes as she became a angel! When I walked in they had to show me Lego thinking it would help my heart, 3 days later LEGO came home to his new home with me playing running and eating Royal Canin High energy food! Now 5 months later he is a normal loving dog! And Vets told me he can actually start to be given a regular royal canin dog food! Thank you for having this type of food to give him the extra energy he needed to recover!
