Product description

This highly palatable wet food formula contains select vegetable proteins to minimize the risk of triggering a reaction. Added linoleic acid, zinc, and biotin support healthy skin and a shiny coat. A specific nutrient blend promotes healthy digestion. And this diet helps reduce the urinary excretion of purines, a component of urate bladder stones. Ask your vet about feeding your adult dog Royal Canin Vegetarian dry dog food as a complement.

Compliments dry kibble

My dalmatian is on veterinary dry kibble, due to his history of bladder stones. He didn't like the plain kibble with added water, so my vet suggested adding the Royal Canin Veterinary Vegetarian to increase his water intake with low purines. He absolutely loves the added canned food and his urine specific gravity improved from this food addition. I have also seen an improvement with his coat since I added the Royal Canin to his meals. Very pleased with the outcome.

Horrible Consistency

My dog ate the moist food readily but it has so much moisture and "gel" that it stuck to the roof of his mouth. He licked and licked trying to get it off the top of his mouth so he could swallow. Horrible mess as we had to scrape the food off the palate with our fingers. We tried to add dry kibble but that just glued itself to the moist food so we actually worsened the situation. Very strange as the first flat of canned food that we bought was great! We had no problems and our dog tolerated it well. We were very disappointed as we tried two different lots and had the same results.

great product

My dog, Ollie , loves this. He really is crazy about veggies and when I don't prepare extra veggies of my own to share with him I give him Royal Canins Vegetarian canned. He licks his bowl clean, top, bottom and sides. He is a happy camper.

Works for my dog with a ton of intestinal issues!

I have a 9 year old food allergic, chronic pancreatitis and IBD dog. Very hard to find something that she can eat without throwing her into an episode. The wet food has work however the dry food used to work but her disease just progressed slightly to a canned food only diet. Love the food!

Can't get enough!

Moe was already on Royal Canin Hepatic dry and low fat GI due to his cushings. A few months back he had a bad case of gastroenterites and s the vet wanted to put him on the Royal Canin vegetarian. He loves it!

Good product for our older Shih Tzu with allergies

We have been feeding this food to our dog Sophia a 9 year old Shih Tzu for several years. Our dog has many allergies problems and is very sensitive when it comes to food. Our dog loves this food and is consistently much healthier after switching to this product.
