years of success

My dog (History of pancreatitis) has eaten this food for about 7 years and hasn't had a single flare-up after I switched to this diet. She seems to love the flavor (I've somehow tricked her into think a single kibble is a treat) and never turns it down. The wet version makes her go crazy. She loves that more than anything else

Great Product - Check Label

Our dear miniature Schnauzer has been on the low-fat formula for years to ease her issues with Pancreatitis and now Diabetes. She was thriving well, few pancreatitis flare-ups, good body condition, happy and otherwise in great shape because of her low-fat diet. Unfortunately, we have just discovered that we were given the wrong Gastrointestinal formula, by mistake. My husband thought the bag was different but couldn't figure out how. It turns out that the line "Low Fat" (Dry Dog Food) was missing. There is a difference in fat content between the two versions of Gastrointestinal. Our dog has been under intensive care for over a week now with a flare-up of serious proportions. The two versions of Gastrointestinal are so easy to mix up. Perhaps Royal Canin could change the photo of the dog on the Low-Fat version and stipulate "Low-Fat Gastrointestinal" for visually motivated people. This may help owners and pooches in the future. A large, red sticker across the front of the bag would help until you can make a proper change to packaging. Vet clinics are so busy these days. We also miss the low fat treats that have now been discontinued. What a shame...

Helped my dogs IBD

Ever since I got my dog as puppy she always had stomach issues. We had been to the vet many times to try and figure out the issue. The last blood test resulted in her IBD diagnosis. My vet recommended this dog food, I also got the wet dog food and she also has other medications and not even 7 days she is better! Stool is firm and no more flare ups! They recommended a low fat diet and if you look out in the market there is very little low fat dog food and or they label it as FAT DOG or WEIGHT MANAGEMENT and she isn’t fat or overweight and it just never helped. If your dog has IBD and your Vet recommends this dog food, GET IT! Totally worth it!

Best Ever

My dog got pancreatitis when he was 3 years old and I tried everything from boiling up chicken & rice to a low fat raw meat diet. I was so relieved when I discovered Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat Dry Food as it basically saved my dog's life. He is 11 years old now and people comment that he is still like a puppy. I soak the kibbles in water to make sure he is getting plenty of fluids as he isn't a big drinker and his stools and urine are always healthy looking. I have recommended this product to other dog owners who were going though the awful journey of finding the right food when their dog had pancreatitis and the results have always been amazing much to the owners relief.

Life saver!

My Biewer Yorkie has bouts of pancreatitis and this was prescribed by my vet after she was hospitalized and on an lV. We were able to bring her home after 3 days, and after her first feeding, she was back to health. She had her first normal poo in about a week! It was so perfect my husband spray painted it gold! That was perhaps 8 years ago. She still has the occasional bout where she won’t eat and will vomit and have diarrhea, but she is always better after she eats this food. I mix the wet and dry Gastrointestinal. I know this product has extended and improved her quality of life. At 11, she still plays like a puppy. Thank you Royal Canin!

Great news, thank you for sharing!
26 Jul 2021's NOT discontinued!

Like many companies of people/animal foods, RCVD supply chains for many products have been disrupted since COVID interrupted manufacturing, shipping, & deliveries well over a year ago - and it's still a challenge. MANY prescription diets are in short supply & only available some of the time, & this is across the board for ALL companies that product such foods. Vets DID get notice that this was, is, & will continue to be an issue. Still, this food is an excellent choice for many pets with GI issues. Beats most of the competitor's choices by a huge margin, is well accepted, and - remembering that this is a PRESCRIPTION diet, prescribed by your vet, and only meant to be fed for a fixed time frame, it's my top choice whenever a pet is having GI issues for which this food is appropriate - including for my own senior Cairn and younger mixed breed Terrier/Schnauzer whenever they have USE-APPROPRIATE gastrointestinal issues.

Reaction Report

My dog had a bout of stress related pancreatitis. He was switched to this food after being on Acana his entire life. After starting this food be developed rashes under his arm pits, started licking his feet, becoming constapted and loosing weight you could see all his ribs. He became lethargic and his coat for rough and thick. Reading the other reviews, I will be removing my dog from this food immediately. Very disappointed.
