This diet is also formulated to help maintain the balance of gastrointestinal microflora and intestinal mucosal integrity.

Transition Instructions

We recommend at least a 7 day transition before you begin feeding the new food exclusively. Start by mixing 75% of the old diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the old diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the old diet with 75% of the new diet. On the 7th day, you can feed the new food exclusively. This allows your pet’s digestive system to smoothly adapt to the new food.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Royal Canin diets preserved?

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.

Where do the ingredients in Royal Canin diets come from?

We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.

Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain by-products?

Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain grains?

Grains can be a healthy part of any cat or dog’s diet. As always, we focus on the nutrients each ingredient provides and grains can provide many important nutrients.

How do you ensure Royal Canin diets are safe for my pet?

Our Quality and Food Safety systems are state-of-the-art and we continue to invest heavily in new technology to make sure they remain that way.

  • We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase.
  • We monitor every load delivered to our plants to verify the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make pet food.
  • We perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to our customers.
  • We manufacture every pet food we sell, in plants that we own; our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 22000 certified for Food Safety.

How do I know which Royal Canin diet is right for my pet?

Based on size, age, lifestyle, and breed, each cat or dog has unique nutritional needs. For healthy pets, use our Product Selector to find the right diet for your cat or dog.

If your pet is experiencing health issues, please refer to your veterinarian for more information. Your veterinarian will consider multiple factors when recommending an appropriate diet.

  • Special Dog Food For A Special Dog!

    By on

    Hi, When I was first told that he needed a prescription dog food I freaked out, then I saw the price I could have been blown over. I'm on a very tight, very strict budget and no idea how to afford it. Originally I was paying close to $50 per 8.8 lbs bag. I pay 35 for the exact same bag three chewy.com for $35 a bag. That's a big difference and the difference between the two covers a 16 lbs bag of cat food and I'm saving on the bag of cat food. Before I got on chewy.com I bought a 8.8 lbs at another retailer and not only did my dog King Leo love it but my cats love it to. I've gotten them broken of eating it I think. Anyway the food is awesome, the price is awesome, and my dog gets Hi, When I was first told that he needed a prescription dog food I freaked out, then I saw the price I could have been blown over.

  • Vet recommended, boxer approved

    By on

    We put our 7 month old Boxer puppy on this food after several weeks of upset stomach issues that persisted despite various medications from the vet. This has done wonders for his stomach and he LOVES it. My only complaint would be that the bag is too small--we go through one of these in just two weeks!
