Canine Hydrolyzed Protein Adult HP Dry Dog Food

Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein Adult HP is a veterinary-exclusive dry dog food for adult dogs and growing puppies with food sensitivities

The benefits

  • Helps reduce skin and GI reactions that may be a result of sensitivities to common proteins found in pet foods
  • Helps minimize risk of reaction with proteins that are broken down to a size that’s less likely to be recognized by the immune system
  • Reinforces the skin barrier with essential nutrients to support healthy skin in dogs with skin sensitivity and irritation

Product description

This highly palatable diet is designed for adult dogs and puppies alike. It’s formulated with hydrolyzed proteins, which are composed of low molecular weight peptides, that can be absorbed in the digestive tract with a reduced risk of triggering an immune reaction. Optimal amounts of B vitamins and amino acids reinforce your dog’s skin barrier. Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA help promote healthy skin and coat. An exclusive blend of fibers helps support healthy digestion in dogs prone to digestive upsets, including diarrhea. And with strict manufacturing procedures to help avoid cross contamination, you can confidently feed Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein Adult HP to your dog for a happy, healthy life. Ask your vet about feeding your adult dog Royal Canin Hydrolyzed Protein wet dog food (formulated exclusively for adult dogs) as a complement.

My dog developed food allergies at about a year old and we have switched his food multiple times over the span of 4 years. From steroid shots to apoquel, nothing seemed to work amazing aside from an actual steroid (2 week relief). After switching to this food his coat completely changed. We are talking itchy flakey skin with course dry fur turn into resilient skin with super model hair/fur. I am just in SHOCK that this food was available and we struggled with vets for about 4 years. We tried everything under the sun, kangaroo & lentil organic diets, broiled vegetables, and multiple all natural brands popular for dogs skin allergies.. Royal Canin has SAVED my dog and I from the stress and disappointment of natural occurrences with allergies and food. THANK YOU!!!

The food has fixed my dog's problems, but...

So my GSD has been on this dry dog food for a little over a year now, and it's worked at correcting her digestive problems and chronic diarrhea. For that it's worked fine, yet at the amounts I've been feeding her (5 cups per day) has caused her to gain weight. Optimally, she's a 80-88 pound dog and now weighs in at 104 and is four months' shy of her third birthday. Any suggestions? My new DVM has suggested cutting down on the amount I give her to 4 cups per day.

Best diet out there!

I have been a vet tech for 12 years now. My mom's dog developed food allergies 14 years ago. We started her on Z/D and her allergies cleared up but her coat was never very good. She was a shabby looking pomeranian. We got some ducks and decided to try and make a limited ingredient diet out of duck eggs and we also put her on supplements. Her coat got worse and she started loosing weight. The clinic I was working for started carrying royal canin so we tried the HP diet. Her coat tripled in thickness and was softer than we had ever seen it! Some people freak out about the ingredients but those don't matter if the required nutrients are there, in right amount and they are made readily digestible. Also some of those so called fillers are prebiotics, they are meant to feed the good bacteria not the dog. The end result is what matters, a healthy happy dog! Royal canin never has recalls because they test EVERY batch of food and are meticulous with their product. If you have a chronic vomiting dog or one with chronic itching and red skin just put them on this food for a couple months. They will refund your money if it doesn't work so what do you have to loose?

A great success story, thank you!

My Giant Schnauzer puppy developed chronic digestive issues after antiobitiocs when he was 4 months old, eventually developing an intussusception in his small intestine. For nearly 2 months he barely grew and failed to gain any weight. At 6 months of age, we finally diagnosed the problem and he had surgery to repair the intestine, but lost 2 inches that were too damaged. We started the HP a couple weeks after his surgery as our first dry food for the high digestibility and the fact that it is feeding trial testing for growth. Since putting him on the food, he has grown, gained energy and gained weight, and two months post-op is 60lbs and still going. He looks so much better and he loves the food - absolutely inhales it. He still has a very sensitive stomach and the slightest change in his diet causes loose stool, so we will keep him on the HP for at least 3 months. His coat is coming back in nicely and he is muscling up. Very pleased with the digestibility and how he has responded. Thanks!!

My dog must be on this for food allergies/digestive issues. I completely clears up the diarrhea she gets from the food allergies but she's not a huge fan of it.

Great diet for our IBS dog

Our dog Loki has been struggling with IBS and PLE for a year or so. We recently switched to this Adult HP and it’s made a huge difference! he’s gaining weight again and improved stools. We also supplement with the Adult HP canned food to cover his meds.
