Helped my dog so quickly

After a month of not knowing what was wrong with my pit bull/ bull mastiff mix I was in tears. I felt so terrible for him. He has constant diarrhea, was losing weight and was all around not acting like himself. I tried everything I could think of and even started making his food at home for him. Nothing was working and my poor baby kept getting sicker. Many trips to the vet, hundreds of dollars in medication and many stressful days later - my vet recommended this food. After only 48 hours of eating this food I could already tell he was starting to feel better. As of now he’s been eating this food for 4 days and he is already 100% back to normal. I can’t believe the turn around. I am so happy with the results and will continue with this food.

A Healthy, Happy Siberian Husky

Our Siberian Husky will be turning three years old this month. When we brought him home as a puppy, we didn’t realize he was very sick. After numerous vet visits and thousands of dollars in bills to help him get healthy, the vet prescribed Royal Canin. Roenick’s GI tract was not healthy from all of the parasites and infections that he had. He started out with the high calorie bag when he was a puppy and is still currently on it. Royal Canin made a difference in Roenick’s life. He went from having constant diarrhea to progressing to healthy bowel movements. I can’t imagine how his little belly felt during the first year of his life. Thank you for all that you do for our pets!

My dog has intestinal problems

I have used this food for over two years. My Vet prescribes it for our dog at one year old. They could not figure out why he had continuous diarrhea. This food has worked for two solid years. We are grateful we found it.

Saved My Dogs Life

I’m a first time dog owner. I have a 13lbs mixed breed named Jazz. Before Jazz turned one she became violently ill. They gave her medicine and sent me home. I continued her diet only to end up back at the Vets. This time they told me there was nothing they could do and I needed to take her to the hospital. I sobbed all day long!! The hospital ran tests and determined that she had gastric issues and recommended Royal Canin. Jazz is three now and the healthiest little doggie I have ever seen! I’m so thankful for this brand!
