Rated 5 out of 5 by Kiki My dog likes
We had to try a prescription dog food according to our vet. I was reluctant due to price but have found that in 2 weeks time his symptoms have been reduced greatly. My dog likes the taste and I have to say it smells kind of like restaurant food. I'm glad we have this one a try although I'm hoping to be able to find it on sale :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rain Good for sensitive digestion and picky eaters
I have two dogs, one that was recommended to this food by our vet for possible allergies who also has some sort of IBD/colitis and one that has no health problems but is very persnickety.
Both of them love this food even more than the high dollar (more expensive per serving) grain free foods I've bought them from specialty pet stores and are actually excited when I put it out, whereas normally they seem to tolerate the dry food but are really only happy when they get their wet food. I thought the fancy protein, grain free kibbles I had already tried were as tasty as they got but evidently not.
The other thing is that this has immensely helped my sensitive tummied dog with her issues, entirely by accident. I quickly noticed a major improvement in her GI symptoms and after feeding her this for a couple of weeks she's entirely back to normal. I didn't realize how bad she probably felt on a regular basis until now- I'll probably never put her on another food again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Regina So far, so good
This food was prescribed by a Vet dermatologist as we attempt to ascertain the cause of my Golden Retriever's chronic itching, scratching, licking and chewing. She seems to love the food and since she's on a restricted diet, I also use it in place of treats. She's also on several meds. Her symptoms have subsided some but until meds are finished and 3 month strict food trial, won't know if it's the food or meds....or both.

by DannaA Helped to stop the itching
This was recommended by my vet to provide my dog with a simple diet so we could hopefully figure out her allergies. This food made a meaningful difference in the first three weeks. I added rubbing her fur down with organic olive oil daily and she began to enjoy much more relief from her scratching. Also, she lost 10 unneeded pounds (because she was not getting food from our plates anymore). About 13 weeks into the trial, and my dog is having significant relief, she is completely off of the Apoquel and other oral medication. She does continue to get a medicated bath weakly. I do still rub her down with olive oil (every couple of days) and have begun to add it to her diet once or twice a week. I think the dog food has been an important part of her improvement. Although, I do not plan to keep her on the food indefinitely (not fond of soy protein), for now, it is working well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Happypups Good product, but it didn't work out for us
My vet recommended this food for my dog, who has a lot of food intolerance issues. When my dog ate it she did really well on it, her chronic diarrhea cleared up and I think she would have gained some much-needed weight if she'd continued to eat it. Unfortunately my dog also develops aversions to foods very easily, and she eventually did so with this food. She just refused to eat it altogether. I don't think that's a problem with the food, it's a problem with my dog. I'm sure this is a very high quality food that would benefit many dogs. My other (healthy) dog ended up eating what was left in the bag, and he loved it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sally Great experience!!
I have had my dog on this particular food for a while, since he is highly allergic to most dog foods. My vet recommended it and he does very well on it. Chewy.com's price is slightly lower than my vet and with the auto-ordering, I don't have to remember to call and order it. Free shipping is wonderful.
The most pleasant surprise was my interaction with your Chat personnel. I was concerned because I was ordering prescription food, so I chatted with a Chewy rep and while we were talking, he called my vet twice to make sure they were faxing the paperwork. I was very impressed and relieved to see my order on my door step just one day later!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgia927 Great & Immediate Results
My 2.5 year old Golden Retriever has constantly had stomach problems. She started on Orijen Puppy, then moved to Orijen Adult. In hindsight I think the Orijen was too rich for her because she would be fine, then out of the blue have very loose stools that clearly had not been digested and would not resolve on its own without metronidazole antibiotics plus chicken and rice. After treatment, she'd be fine for another couple weeks then loose stools all over again. I went to the vet and they confirmed she did not have any parasites. We decided that before running any tests for IBD, etc. we would try her on Royal Canin rabbit and if no loose stools whatsoever in 10-12 weeks, we'd switch to a non-prescription rabbit brand. She's been on it two weeks and her stools have never been better -- they are firm, dark, and regular. I no longer fear that I'm going to walk into my apartment and find explosive diarrhea everywhere!!! I'm still unsure what was the root cause of her stomach problems but I am so pleased and grateful for this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weez Chewy is a great source for Royal Canin
Chewy was recommended by our vet, Powder Paws, in Park City, UT as a source for a difficult to find recipe of Royal Canin.
The shipment arrived in about three to four days which was great.
We are very happy with Chewy and Royal Canin.
