This formula doesn't have added Glucosamine and is suitable for dogs over 12 years of age weighing 9-22 pounds.

if an 11 pound dog is recommended to eat 1 cup per day, does this mean that the 2.5 pound bag only lasts for 5 feedings?

There is approximately 10 cups in the 2.5 pound bag. If your dog needs 1 cup per day, the bag of food should last for approximately 10 feedings.

Royal Canin dry dog food

I buy the senior, small kibble for my little dogs. They like it and their vet said it is good food. Chewy has the fastest delivery I've ever experienced with other companies.

Not for my dog

We tried this and she liked it at first by itself. Then she would only eat it with wet food. Then she would only eat the wet food and left this. I ended up donated the bag to the Humane Society. She seemed to digest it well and it settled perfectly and seemed to have high energy on it. It is too bad doesn't work for us.

Hopefully Back For Good 🥰

So glad this food seems to be coming back! My 13 year old (almost 14) Yorkie LOVES this food so much! We had to switch over to Hill's when this one wasn't available and she was fine with it, but always needed a food topper, with this Royal Canin food she just eats it all up (but we still top for more flavor now lol)🥰

Royal Canin for Seniors

I just switched from another brand. My dog used to require canned food mixed in with his kibble, but he likes the taste of Royal Canin and will eat it plain.

Please bring it back!

All my seniors LOVED this food and they stopped making it. So disappointing! :-(

Not ever available

My 17 and 16 year old Irish Jack Russell’s loved this food mixed with the Royal Canin 8 + wet can food. At first I spent hours going store to store hunting for it along with it being unavailable online. Sometimes hitting 6-8 stores in my area. Finally I gave up. There’s nothing worse than switching your dogs food this late in their life.

Help the Tiny Seniors!

My girls loved this food, and it was readily available, until it wasn't. This food hasn't been available for so long, I can't remember when it was. My girls are 16-1:2 years old, and I'm afraid even if they live til they're 20, they may never see this food again. Royal Canin, please help all these tiny, older dogs get the nutrition they need before it's too late!

Don't buy this if you want your dog to live

My little 5 lb 12 year old pom is missing her food. Her hair is gone, she's lackluster. I really blame this on Royal Canin not having this food readily available. Shame on you!

Great food that is never in stock

Please get more of this brand! My dog is 17 years old and this was perfect! Nothing else compares which clearly others have figured out, as you never have it any more!

Read if you’ve got a picky old tootie with some additional health issues

Hello fellow dog parent! This food so far, has been an answer to our prayers - literally. Our little lady is a 11 year old pug that has CHF (congestive heart failure. ) Thanks be to God, she is able to have it controlled with medication. However, the Diuretic she’s on is hard on her kidneys after 2.5 years. Unfortunately we cannot lower the dosage without her life enjoyment changing. So onto the good stuff! JollyAnna refused the super expensive Kidney food from the vet and i began praying and searching for an alternative. We found this food, and I bought a small bag and a pack of the 8+ wet. She was being a picky little toot prior to kidney food, and was refusing any other food we gave her and her dog cookies! She’s been happily attacking this food for almost a month I think. I give her a few finger flips of the wet mixed in and she’s happy as can be. She’s been a lot more spunky and running around for food again. We plan to take her in a few more weeks to have her blood work looked at again.
