Product description

Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Puppy is palatable, digestible puppy food that supports digestive health with high fat and calorie content, so you can feed your growing dog small portions to support their sensitive stomach.

Great food for puppies that get into things!

My puppy gets into everything! In order to keep everything flowing and to avoid spouts of puppy diarrhea or nausea, this is a great product. My puppy loves the flavor and prefers it over other puppy foods I've tried. Unfortunately, I have a large breed pup so the kibbles are REALLY tiny for her. If they came out with a GI for large puppies I would continue buying it, however she just inhales it without chewing since it is so small and with how fast she goes through it, it is no longer worth it for me. Definitely recommend for small to medium breeds or younger large breed pups!

Duke loves the taste!

I bought this food after a suggestion from a friend. I have a large breed puppy and I worry about bloat. Duke loves the taste and we have had no tummy problems!

The only food that worked!!

We are so thankful we found this food! We tried 4 other brands that just wouldn’t stop our Golden’s diarrhea. This has stopped it and kept it away for the last month!!!

Only food to stop our Sheepadoodle's diarrhea!

Fantastic food for a puppy diagnosed with Gastroenteritis! Our 5 month old Sheepadoodle had horrible GI problems and this food worked amazing! He loves the taste and had no problem switching food. I do wish it was available in a larger bag as he is 60 pounds and this 8.8lb bag does not last long. The kibble size it very small, he will inhale it and then choke, so we put 2 small tennis balls in with the food to help slow him down. Thank you Royal Canin, you have been a life saver!!

Great choice

My vet gave me this for my 10 month old puppy who is experiencing hives and vomiting . She is a picky eater and would not eat until late afternoon and than late evening if at all , now she eats his morning and evening and licks the bowl ckeamB! No more upset tummy or hives , just wish it was made to be able to get without vet prescription at the pet store.
