Description

The gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and colon. Therefore, gastrointestinal disease is defined as any abnormality involving one or more of these structures. By feeding your pet a diet that contains precise amounts of key nutrients, you can not only help minimize vomiting, diarrhea,or constipation, you can also help to support and improve the function of the gastrointestinal structures. This gastrointestinal diet is formulated to help maintain the balance of gastrointestinal microflora and intestinal mucosal integrity.

Key Benefits

    My vet prescribed this to my dog which was found on the streets by my step-daughter. The food doesn't smell bad and if you sprinkle a little water and put it in the microwave for a few seconds the smell of the food makes her go crazy for it. I also love it because she can have both hard food and soft with the same product. This means I don't have to buy can foods to prevent constipation. Plus her breath doesn't smell bad which entails I'm no longer nauseous when brushing her teeth. Overall I recommend it this product to anyone, even the dog doesn't have gastrointestinal problems.

  • Great Product

    By on

    My vet prescribed this for my little girl that has had several medical issues with stomach as well as being allergic to dust mites. My other little girls also as eat as good for them too. The pieces are small and easy for them to chew. I also use the can food to give Mika her meds and her sisters look to see if she might have dropped something.

  • Thanks You!

    By on

    Royal Canin arrived at lightening speed! That's a plus because I was not doing my best. Getting me on this early made all the difference in the world to me. The product is just what the Veterinarian ordered. I ate it like a champ and I was good to go afterwards! I know my dad told you all that I don't like taking pictures. I might let him take one of me just so you know I'm feeling fine! Thank you all for your super fast turnaround, and for always making me and my siblings (the bird, fish and chinchillas included) feel our greatest! LeiLani

  • Best food ever

    By on

    My dog loves this food. After trying all kinds of brands like Purina One, Science Diet, Blue Buffalo, the vet recommend this. All the other food hurt her stomach and she would have terrible gas. I tried it thinking she would eat it for awhile then we would be on the hunt again. Well she loved it! Its been about 3 years, she goobles it up every day and even eats the kibbles like a treat! Best part no tummy aches!

  • Excellent for our German Shepherd!

    By on

    We tried many different high quality dog foods and our German Shepherd continued having loose stools and lack of appetite. The vet suggested quite a bit of tests which showed he had pancreatitis. We were shocked but as with most pet owners we wanted to do everything we could for him. The vet suggested we try this low fat gastrointestinal food which we did. This food was the answer. He has not had any additional issues since feeding him this food.

  • It's not just the cost...

    By on

    Cassidy ny 5 year old Lab, has always had a sensitive stomach, and we had to feed her Royal Canine Gastrointestinal dry food; and it's only available at the Vet. It was costing me $60.00 for the 17lb bag. From Chewy I was able to buy the same good, but a 26lb bag, at the same price, which is a 50% savings. That's significant!

  • No more sick days!

    By on

    Our Westie has trouble with his GI tract. He has loud rumblings with vomiting, diarrhea and even goes off his food altogether. We have had him thoroughly investigated numerous time by Vetrinarians. The low fat gastro diet was recommended and is well tolerated by him. We also have used the soft diet (which our Westie loves but it is more expensive) The dry is more convenient. I always keep the canned(soft) on hand to mix things up a bit for him. No more flare ups with this food.

  • Great food choice!

    By on

    My dog (60lb labordoodle) was having some on and off troubles with digestion and the vet suggested this food. Since then, he is no longer gassy and we don't have to force him to eat! He eats it quickly when feed and has even gained a healthy amount of weight. Highly recommend if you can't find a solution to help your pup.

  • I love chewy!

    By on

    My 3 labs have to be on a low fat food that requires a prescription. Which my dogs actually love. (they are a little on the curvy side). My vet that I've been going to since they were puppies carries this brand but it's a 45 minute drive on a good day. I absolutely love chewy.com, they contacted my vet for me since it is a prescription & I had it delivered within a couple of days. Not only is it convenient, it is quite a bit less expensive than my vet's office. Plus you can choose to have automatically delivered to your front door as often as needed.

    Our dog was having gastrointestinal issues and after going to the vet and taking medicine over the last year, it wouldn't go away. I suggested we change her food so the vet recommended Royal Canin. Chewy made it so easy to order and were so quick to deliver!!! Thank you for your excellent customer service!
