Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal High Energy HE Dry Dog Food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is your dog ribby and very high energy? We have a St. Bernard runt who weighs 60 lbs. Buffy acts like Nana from Peter Pan in the house, shuffling around, acting friendly and sleeping. Outside on our farm she is very fast (she actually brought down a deer!) and runs like lightning with our two beagles trailing behind. If she doesn't get Royal Canin High Energy she loses weight quickly. Our other five dogs can't use it without liposuction (no, really not) but for a dog like Buffy, it's a godsend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved bruno Life My 1 year old Boxer got hit by a car and broke his hind femur in 3 spots , along with 3 fractures to the pelvic. o f course he lost weight but then over the healing process he continued to lose weight, he didn't want to eat much , but Royal Canin saved him. He loves this food and it put all his weight back on and is starting to look and feel healthy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this dog foodS My dog didn't care much for his previous dog food and almost every week he had a bout of diarrhea, so our vet recommended Royal Canin Gastrointestinal dog food. My dog now loves his food and stands by the stove impatiently waiting to be fed. He hasn't had any problems since he started on this dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Food for Gastro-Sensitive Dogs Perfect blend for our gatro-sensitive Chihuahua who also has acid reflux and naturally with the breed hypoglycemia. Her Vet suggested this brand of RX food and she LOVES it! We tried the wet variety of this food but it didn't farewell with her sensitive stomach as it has a higher grease/fat content. The dry food is wonderful, still has the gastro-sensitive blend minus the grease and she LOVES it (her stomach too). She has had less acid reflux and her sugar level is healthily maintained with the High Energy Gastro. Royal Canin has mastered the art of health specific food and we are so thankful. Thank you for keeping this hard to find food in stock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved our Golden's life Years ago our (now 14yo) Golden Retriever suddenly stopped absorbing nutrients from the food the rest of the pack was eating*. Switched him to this and never looked back. He weighs almost the same as when we adopted him 11 years ago. Excellent health. We have also fed to fellow pack members during temporary bouts of diarrhea. *We since changed that food after determining ingredients had been changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This dog food is great I adopted my puppy from a shelter when she was 10 weeks old. For the first 4 months she would have diarrhea at least once a week. Since I have been using Royal Canin GI, she has not had any more upset tummy and she is much happier. Thank you!
