My dog LOVES this food!!

Over the past several months my allergy dog has been refusing to eat the RC Select Protein food (both rabbit & duck formula). So I switched him to the Skin Support recently after reading the reviews. When I opened the bag he ran over and stuck his face in the bag. I offered him a handful of straight dry kibble and he ate it right up. He is an extremely picky eater, so I was shocked. It smells very enticing and the kibbles are really small which is perfect for him b/c he doesn't have many teeth for chewing. I put some in his bowl with hot water to create a "gravy" and he didn't even hesitate to eat it. Hoping this helps to improve his skin related allergy issues, foot licking & chronic ear infections.

I discoveredyour food at a promotion table.

I fed our dog for 14 years with Royal Canine. He was never overweight and always in good health. The 14th year he developed skin problems and we went to the special diet. He passed and now we are feeding our new rescue with Royal Canine. I feel she will be healthy and Happy for years ;-)

My 13 year old daschund has severe skin problems. Royal Canin is a God send to her as it helps in controlling the outbreaks.

We've been trying different ways to help our frenchie with dry itchy skin. Royal Canin has made the difference. His coat is shiny and shedding has reduced drastically. He's much happier and healthier.

Helps dry skin issues and tastes great

Purchased this kibble for our 9 year old Keeshonden who suffers from dry skin infections. He is so sweet and patient but his gorgeous coat was beginning to fall out. We are seeing improvements after only a few weeks and are hopeful for a full recovery

Great dog food!

I am on my third bag of this dog food. It works well and I am amazed that you are able to use the entire bag of food. There are not cupful of crumbs in the bottom of the bag.
