Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Early Cardiac Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our cardiac dog likes the food and health has improved! So tasty our non-cardiac dog insists on eating some, too! We have 2 French bulldogs, both picky eaters. One of our boys was diagnosed with heart issues 6 months ago. Our vet recommended a cardiac diet, but warned that other pet parents have reported back to her that their dogs don't like cardiac dog food very well. After reading reviews on various brands of cardiac foods, I ordered Royal Canin since several reviewers mentioned their dogs like it. Our cardiac boy liked the food immediately, and has received 2 much improved health reports from the both the cardiologist and the vet since being on the food (and a multitude of cardiac meds.) Now our non-cardiac dog is insisting on eating some cardiac food, as well. He has always enjoyed the RC French Bulldog food, but recently began refusing it unless we sprinkle in some RC cardiac food. Go figure. I spoke to the vet and she confirmed it's ok for our non-cardiac boy to eat since it's designed to be fed for long term. Everyone's happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOGS LOVE THE TASTE We have 5 dogs all are mini-schnauzers and this breed is prone to heart disease. Since discovering that one dog in particular was suffering from heart disease and now has to be on medication for the remainder of her life, we decided to switch to a food very low in sodium that would be a benefit to all of our dogs. Royal Canin is very familiar to us and we have been purchasing the SO dry food for our dog with bladder stones. Again, the dogs are attracted to the smell of the food and love the taste as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived quickly! When the other local place I ordered from took this dog food off their "menu" I had to quickly find another place to order from. I thought it would take forever as it was over the holiday and of course you have to note who your dog's doctor is and their phone number, etc. but the food arrived quickly and well boxed and we didn't miss a day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog LOVES it! My dog recently became a cardiac patient, and a study of various cardiac diet dog foods led me to Royal Canin's Early Cardiac dry dog food. It is a low sodium high nutrition food that my dog enthusiastically eats every morsel of! Service was fast and efficient from, and they beat other sites' prices! Thanks,!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My husky will actually eat this At first i didn't know whether he would eat it or not. But he was attracted to the smell and actually ate it without prompting. He has congestive heart failure but he is hanging in there. I just have to find a way to keep it away from the cats. They like it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from He is Enjoying It Started by Dachshund Morgan on this food 2 weeks ago after a heart condition diagnosis. He transitioned easily off his Royal Canin Dachshund food. Hope it helps keep his heart condition and salt intake in check.
