Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by My pup LOVES Royal Canin Hepatic!!! Recently my 8 year old mini schnauzer, Loki, was diagnosed with a congenital polysystemic shunt. My veterinarian recommended that he eat only a low protein diet, either Hill's Science Diet LD or Royal Canin Hepatic. We tried the LD, but he just walked away. Then we offered him the Royal Canin Hepatic dry food. He absolutely loves it and devours every morsel!!! And I am happy to report that his liver bile enzymes have improved drastically!!! And a helpful hint.........since he can no longer have his usual snacks, I make tiny meatballs of the Royal Canin Hepatic wet canned food and bake them in a 250 degree oven till crispy. He loves them too!!! Thank you, Royal Canin and!!! July 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by stopped my dog from seizures Max was having up to 3 seizures a day.Dr said he has a shunt liver.So we put him on this food. Max has not had one seizure since! Max loves this food he takes the morsels and hides them for a snack for later;) Thanks to this food my Max is seizure free;) April 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Our vet recommended this and our dog loves it! Great product to meet the health issues our 7 year old dog needed. He sometimes acts like a puppy again. Great glad we found Really appreciated the continued follow up after the order was placed clear through receipt of the product at home. May 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Carmela's Favorite Through the years our Pom Carmela enjoyed different dog food brands but it wasn't until she began eating Royal Canin hepatic diet that she looks healthier and her weight leveled. She will not eat other brands anymore! April 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect! When we were told our dog had to go on a copper free diet we weren't worried because she eats everything. Unfortunately the food we tried she wouldn't touch, not even when we coated it with cheese The vet then recommended this food. We were skeptical but she devoures it. She gets so excited, we were so grateful for this food! April 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best food for copper storage disease My Yellow Lab Buddy was diagnosed with copper storage disease 3 years ago. He was immediately put on this food along with a strict diet similar to people with Wilson's Disease. His regular blood work has been in the normal range for 3 years. He has all the characteristics of a 8 1/2 year old dog. This food along with my fantastic vet at Michigan State and my local vet saved his life. By the way, it smells great and my other dog would rather have this than her own! April 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dogs love it, great service! After trying other Liver Diet food, Royal Canin is much more suitable for my maltese dogs. They just love it! provided excellent service and I am very happy with the whole experience. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Price for this food I looked all over and they have the best price. They also delivered the dog food fast, with in days, also They had to call the Vet and get the prescription. June 20, 2013
