Canine Ultamino® Dry Dog Food

Royal Canin Ultamino is a veterinary-exclusive dry dog food for adult dogs with food sensitivities needing a short-term elimination diet or long-term nutrition

The benefits

  • Clinically proven to help reduce skin reactions that may be due to sensitivities to common proteins found in pet foods
  • Minimizes the risk of reaction with proteins extensively broken down to a size that’s virtually unrecognizable by the immune system
  • Reinforces the skin barrier with specific nutrients to support healthy skin in dogs with skin sensitivity and irritation

Product description

This innovative diet is the result of years of extensive research, formulated as a nutritional solution for pets with severe food sensitivities. Its clinically proven and highly palatable formula contains a protein source that is broken down to an amino acid level, so it can be absorbed in the digestive tract with reduced risk of triggering an immune response. 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 Ultamino to your dog for a happy, healthy life.

Miracle worker for my dog's IBD

I'm a CVT and my dog Cooper was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and this food helped save his life (he was having weight loss, chronic vomiting & diarrhea. He's still currently on his drug therapy but this food helped with his recovery and he loves it! I hope in the future they come out with a canned version. Have been with Royal Canin for 5+ years and love their company.
Royal Canin response
Thank you for sharing Cooper's success story with us!

Excellent product

This food saved my GoldenDoodle from chronic ear infections and paw licking as well as white fur discoloration. Thank God our vet prescribed this after trying a few other avenues of treatment. Nala has been ear infection free for 7 + years and her fur is as white as snow. Love this product!!!
Royal Canin response
Great to hear that Nala has done so well with the Ultamino.

Optimal nutrition and skin/coat support

One year ago, our 6 yr old beagle developed some skin and questionable issues, possibly allergies to foods. After months of feeding Ultamino, his coat shines beautifully, his digestion is reliable, his stools are consistent. Although we have determined that his occasional rashes may not be food related, we continue to feed him Ultamino because of the positive effects and nutritional support he receives. And add it to a combination of the Royal Canin Beagle dry food. We have added the Ultamino into our 2 yr old German Shepherd's Royal Canin German Shepherd dry food also as a mix and supplement. Both dogs have beautiful coats and consistent stool habits and easy weight control.
Royal Canin response
Excellent! Thank you for the valuable feedback!

I like the red, white and blue color scheme!

I have been feeding Royal Canine Ultamino to my American Cocker Spaniel for 4 years now. She has terrible food allergies and we tried everything!! She went on a very basic diet of steamed sweet potatoes for two weeks to clear up the allergies and then we began adding ingredients to the sweet potatoes slowly to see what gave her a reaction. We eliminated so many things and were suspecting it had something to do with the way her body breaks down proteins. Our vet recommended trying the Royal Canine food and we were ecstatic to find that it agreed with Gracie's system!! We have been feeding it ever since!

Great for Dogs with Allergies

I’ve had my dog on Ultamino for about three years and it’s been a lifesaver to my handsome pitbull who is allergic to EVERYTHING! It’s the only food that doesn’t break him all out. Thank you Royal Canin!

Improved Health

My 10 year old Basenji has many health issues and after starting her on this food within a couple of weeks she was able to move around much better. I haven't seen her this healthy in years and I attribute it to this food as we haven't changed anything else in her diet or medications. And more importantly she loves it!

So glad I found this!

So, my Maddy dog was diagnosed with IBD and we had tried all the proteins and mixtures to help settle her poor tummy! Diarrhea and vomiting every other day.. it was heart wrenching. Vet suggested the ultamino and she had a great reaction (meaning no reaction)!! It’s pretty expensive but she’s worth every penny!

Amazing results!

A Vet recommended this food for our highly allergic dog and we are glad we tried it. We tried every food out that there that was recommended for dogs with allergies and skin problems and they all made him worse. He was on and off antibiotics for a long time trying to fight this infection. then we decided to change his food one last time to the Ultimino and in a couple of weeks he started clearing up. It has been 10 months and he is the happiest and healthiest he has ever been.
