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.

But with the help of your veterinarian and Royal Canin, there’s not just hope—there can be a true difference.

This palatable, digestible low fat dog food is formulated for dogs that may have difficulties digesting or tolerating fat. Prebiotics help 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 Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat wet dog food and Gastrointestinal treats as a complement to your dog’s diet.

Horrible food, caused diarrhea

Was prescribed this food by my vet as part of a treatment for chronic pancreatitis in my dog. Within 2-3 days he developed diarrhea (there was none before) and refused to continue eating the food. Looking at the other recent reviews of this food, it seems to be the consensus that something is truly wrong with this formula. Still dealing with the stomach issues this has caused and it's been 5 days. Just awful. Do not feed this to your dogs.

We used this food for 2 years and my dog started with diarrhea again. It looks different and I should have known not to give it to him due to obvious changes. I thought I could TRUST the changes made due to it being a prescribed dog food. I trusted your product. Instead you spend money changing product packaging and changing a formula that was helpful for my dog that depends on its quality ingredients due to health needs. It's imperative that the blend doesn't change due to his pancreatitis triggers.

Change in kibble size and formula

My large breed German Shepherd has been on this product for approximately 2 years. He was doing beautifully with the Gastrointestinal low fat dry food until this last 17 lb bag. On the first morning he went from one bowel movement to 3 and ended up going 3 more times that day. Day two same thing in the morning only 2 after that. Day 3 morning 3 bowel movements and the last was a lot less firm with red tinges. Also, they have changed the kibble size. Sorry for the detailed description but wanted to let others know.

Did the trick!! Thank you!

My 7 year old Golden, Hannibal, had a totally unexpected bout of pancreatitis about a month ago. Scared me to death! Fortunately, after a trip to the emergency hospital, he's been good ever since. Thanks mostly to Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat Dry (and canned) dog food! Tried putting him back on his old food, but he got sick again. So now we're staunch supporters of this food! May be more expensive, but if it keeps my baby well, this is the one!

change in formula!

I have struggled for over a year to balance my dog's health issues. It was upon my Vet's recommendation that we make the switch to RC, RX's Gastro diet. She was doing wonderfully on it. Until I received the last 18 lb bag from a retailer ($72!) The kibble size has changed, it's larger and the color is no longer a dark brown, it's an almost yellow color. My dog is a small breed, who requires the smaller kibble and is driven by her nose. As soon as I put it down, she sniffed it and walked away. Clearly not the same formula that she is accustomed too. Royal Canin, should leave well enough alone, ESPECIALLY when the RX diets that we are paying a premium for, are health specific. So now another change to find a dry kibble that meets my dogs need. How unfortunate....

New formula isn't good

My dog has been on this for almost a year and then all the sudden they change the formula. This prescription dog food? The formula before was very helpful for my dogs sensitive stomach. And then they don't even let us know they change it? Now my dogs stool is basically water. Thanks.

New formula is bad

All the problems we used this dry food for, returned after the change packaging and formula. We used it for three years without problems. Now diarrhoea with blood and vomiting are back. What we can we do???

Crude Fat Min Wrong on website

Furious that the product changed!!

Our dog has been on this product for 4 years and it has been wonderful until they changed the packaging a few months ago. They also changed the product. Why would you change such an awesome product? Our dog is back to having intestinal issues again. I have been through three 22 lb bags and still having problems. Please bring back the old formula!

Loved the product, till...

I bought 2 bags back in July my dog has been on this food for over an year. But this is in my bag of food, I throw my bags away and put in a new container. This is supposed to be a low protein, yes worms have high protein, this is why my dog is throwing up again?? I’m told I have to eat the cost.. time for new food
