Feeding guides are general recommendations only. The amount of food required by your dog may vary above or below that listed in this feeding guide. It is recommended that your dog be fed 2 to 4 equal portions of the diet per day.

Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Store this product in a cool, dry place.

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.

    Our schnauzer has food allergies and protein spills. Most dog foods don't agree with his stomach or give him diarrhea. The Royal Canin Vegetarian Dry Dog Food is wonderful! He likes the food and has no digestive upset! He eats it readily. Great choice for us

  • Finally a solution to food allergies

    By on

    My 5 year old pug was suffering from allergies. He was on Apoquil, steroids, special shampoos...Nothing helped his hot spots, licking his hair right off or tummy upsets. I took my dog to see a dermatologist and she immediately put him on this food. After just a week I could tell he was doing better (no more tummy upsets). After a month his hair grew back. It turned out that he is allergic to all meat proteins, soy (no matter what form it is in), dairy, egg, grains (including oatmeal)...he can not even be washed with oatmeal shampoo. All that time he suffered...This food saved him from any more food allergy suffering and may have even saved his life.

  • Great service and prices.

    By on

    My dogs are on a vegetarian diet. They eat the Royal Canin Vegetarian food and seem to like it. Since it is a prescription dog food, I can't recommend it but I can recommend Chewy.com. They have made it convenient and economical and I don't have to worry about running to the vet when they are open to get dog food.

  • Happy puppy

    By on

    I was nervous about switching my dog to a vegetarian dog food, but really needed to so he wouldn't have belly issues. I was pleasantly surprised how much he enjoys eating this. I figured if it didn't smell like chicken, he wouldn't go near it. I was wrong. He absolutely loves it. And I was thrilled with how quickly it shipped and arrived at my house. Super happy with how this all turned out!
