These powerful and devoted dogs can often suffer from digestive sensitivities, joint pain and even cardiac issues. Royal Canin Maxi addresses the needs of the large dog throughout its lifetime - from the large dog’s longer growth period, to nutrients to help limit inflammation of the joints and highly digestible proteins to ease digestion.

This is only a guide. Optimal feeding amounts may vary according to your pet's temperament, activity level and environment. If you have any questions regarding your pet's health, please contact your veterinarian.

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.

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.

  • Less weight, more energy

    By on

    My very healthy 10-year-old dog started with a bag of Royal Canin food from our vet for his itchy skin a couple of months ago. It kind of lessened his scratching, but the real difference was that he lost 3 pounds (now at his ideal weight of 63 pounds) and he's far more energetic. So we switched to this RC variety for large dogs, and it's been great. Same energy, way less money. I've been lowering his weekly running mileage as he aged, but this morning he asked for -- and got! -- a 2.25-miler after months of running one surly mile with me a few times a week. He sprinted! He played! He grabbed a tennis ball in the backyard when we got home! And he loves this food, barking and bouncing all the My very healthy 10-year-old dog started with a bag of Royal Canin food from our vet for his itchy skin a couple of months ago.

Royal Canin has a reputation for being spendy, but when we autoship with Chewy, it's less expensive than his previous premium food for older dogs that we bought at the local pet store. This dry dog food is a win all around. … more

  • Seems yummy for my girl

    By on

    We have been trying multiple senior foods and got worried when the news came out about grain free go food causing cardiomyopathy with dogs. So, my younger dog was on the Royal Canine Golden Retriever, and we had no idea they made a senior food for large breed dogs. She absolutely loves it! I was worried because she is a picky eater but my older golden has taken to this food so well! Very glad we switched!

    This older dog of mine can be a little finicky these days about dinner time. Thanks royal canin, at least I can count on her getting a good meal at least twice daily. Though her portions have been declining.

  • Perfect food for my dog.

    By on

    We have been trying different kinds of dog food for our pet. We are finding the Royal Canin fits what she needs for food. It is helping her weight, bettering her coat, and giving her the needed energy. A great product.

  • Pieces Too Big

    The food is very large and hard. My dog could not chew it well and didn't seem to like it.

  • German Shepard

    Luka loves this food! He used to eat RC German Shepard. He was never crazy about it, but reluctantly ate it. Now that he’s older, I am giving this a try. So far he loves it!

  • Great food; bad packaging

    By on

    The Royal Canin 8+ Maxi dry dog food has helped our 11-year-old black lab. She has always had a sensitive digestive system. Since being on this food she has had no symptoms, and has not turned her nose up to it, as she has eventually with other foods. My only complaint is the packaging. I love that it is a resealable bag, but the zip closure on this 30-pound bag of dog food is sufficient for a snack baggie. Royal Canin, thank you for this food; please consider looking into a better closure for the bag.

  • Big Kibble for Senior Dog

    By on

    This food was recommended by my vet for my senior dog so I tried it. I was surprised at how big the kibble was. Seemed strange to have that size kibble for a senior dog with aging teeth. Had to put water on it to soften for my dog, but she seemed to like it once it was softened up.
