Royal Canin

Our little 16 yr old Chihuahua doesn’t have many teeth left & I needed a really small kibble that she could almost swallow hole. She absolutely loves it & the kibble is super small.

It was good til it wasn't!!

This food was good til it wasn't .... available any longer! My two 16-1/2 year old Yorkies at 3-1/2 pounds each, did great on this food, and loved it forever, until it hasn't been available forever. What a shame such a wonderful company like Royal Canin can't keep up with the high demand their clients are asking for. We're forced to search elsewhere, and when we find something equal in quality that our pets like as well, if not better, and is readily available, guess what, we won't return. I'm sure you know how detrimental this is to your business, your stocks, and your bottom line. Yes, you are losing money and getting grief, I am being inconvenienced, but the real victims here, are the tiny, elderly fur babies not getting the food they need and deserve. Please, please, please get this food back in stock! Can you at least give us an approximate date we may see it back on the market, or a place we can preorder it before it comes and goes, before we can get our hands on even one bag? It's not fun to be teased! A very concerned senior pet Mom.

Excellent food for small elderly dogs

My Morky is almost 13 years old. She has only eaten Royal Canin all of her life. In fact, when I have tried to change her dog food she just refuses to eat. I have always been able to get Royal Canin in her preferred choice any place. But, since the pandemic it has been harder to find especially in the 12+ category. Chewy is the only place that carried it. Thanks!!!!

Tried to switch

Well I tried to switch my 2 little senior divas off of this food due to poor quality ingredients after I read the reviews prior to my last order. I ordered another small bag of this and a much better quality ingredient (more expensive brand) food. And the 2 little Chi's won't budge & eat the new food. I guess since I got them at an older age from a shelter & rescue I'm going to let them decide which one they like best. I sure wish Royal Canin would do better with the ingredients in this food for the tiny dogs.

Perfect Choice!

My 12-year-old toy poodle has always been a picky eater. She turns her nose up at most things and generally eats only when she wants to show you that she is offended by what you have presented her with. As she ages, this habit is not good for her health. She has lost over 2 pounds, which is terrible on a 7-pound dog. She's also newly blind, and this has left her feeling pretty low in spirits lately. As soon as I received the package, we opened it to give her a taste. The kibble is small and thin, easy for her to manage. The smell is rich, and it kinda smells good even to my human nose. She perked up and ate 4-5 kibbles from my hand ravenously like it was a treat. Normally, we would change her food gradually, but her old kibble is too big for her to really get a good meal from, so we just gave her a small portion of new kibble. Y'all, she CLEARED HER PLATE. Of kibble. This has never happened in 12 years. Expensive brands, grain-free brands, grocery store brands, even others from the Royal Canin line. We've finally found a food she will eat! Hopefully weight gain will come soon. We have paired it with Royal Canin Mature 8+ Canned Dog Food, and I have high hopes!

What... no meat?

I almost bought this. I truly understand the importance of vegetables along with some grains in dog food. However, the main ingredient is rice. The 2nd main ingredients are pulverized leftover chicken parts, such as bones, beaks, and feet. My little senior Chihuahua deserves better.
