Large dogs are treasured for their incredible working abilities, and prove to be wonderful herding, tracking, rescue, guard and assistance dogs. These powerful and devoted dogs can often suffer from digestive sensitivities, joint pain and even cardiac issues. Royal Canin Maxi Weight Care is designed for adult and mature large breed dogs over 15 months who have a tendency to chow down at dinner time a little more than their pet parent would like.

Key Benefits
  • For dogs over 15 months between 56 & 99 pounds
  • Helps reduce your dog’s energy intake by 15% while giving the same volume of food
  • Increased protein content and a moderate fat content to help dogs achieve and maintain an ideal body weight
  • Enriched with fiber to reduce the feeling of hunger between meals and help satisfy your dog’s appetite
  • Helps support healthy bones and joints which can be placed under stress by body weight

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.


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.

    I spent five or six months looking for a good quality food for my dog that wouldn't break my wallet. I tried probably 8 to 10 different brands and my dog rejected all of them. Finally, I asked my vet for a recommendation and he said Royal Canin. I've been using it ever since and my dog just loves it. Plus it has good quality ingredients.

    Dog doesn't like this one

    By on

    We tried switching to this after coming of Royal Canin's HP Vet food since our dog gained a bit. She scarfed the HP and after switching she now just stares at me when I put this stuff down. She even walks away which I've never seen her do. Purchased a small bag of hills science diet weight control and gave her one scoop with RC's and she loved it. Now switching to science diet which was comparable to this RC in fiber, cals, etc.

    We love corgis and corgis love food. So trying to keep our Camden svelte ain’t easy— we learned to love Royal Canine products while living in France and they are not only reliable but animals love Them. Now if we can just stick to his regimen our sweet corgi will be healthy. He loves this kibble. Recommend highly.

    Maxi Weight - dry dog food

    By on

    As we try to maintain Cali diet and weight control, we have used Royal Canin in the past. This time we tried Maxi Weight Care Dry Dog Food from Royal Canin, and Cali just has not liked this food, we will be going back to Royal Canin Weight Control Dry Dog Food that we purchased in the past, that she enjoys. I would & will recommend everyone to use Chewy. As there prices are good and there customer service surpasses, others online pet company I have used.
