About Royal Canin Dermatology For Dogs

Worried About Your Dog’s Skin Health?

Skin health concerns are common and can appear anywhere on your dog’s body. Your veterinarian is the expert on your dog’s health, so you should always consult with this trusted advisor to find the best solutions for your pet. This specialized expertise is why Royal Canin works closely with veterinarians to develop formulas that support skin health.

Common Causes of Skin Health Concerns

Environmental Sensitivities

Pollen, plants and dust are environmental factors that can trigger an immune response in some dogs.

Food Sensitivities

Your veterinarian may recommend a diet elimination trial to help determine if your pet has a sensitivity to certain proteins in his current diet.


Your dog can pick up external parasites such as mites, fleas, ticks and lice from contaminated sources, both indoors and out


Puppies, older dogs, and dogs that have recently been ill may be more susceptible to bacterial infections that can lead to skin health concerns.

How Can Nutrition Help?

Your veterinarian may recommend a Royal Canin Dermatology formula for your dog. These special formulations can:

Aid digestive health by regulating movement through the GI tract and supporting balanced digestive flora

Support the skin’s natural protective barrier

Aid cellular health with a complex blend of antioxidants.

Promote healthy skin and coat by providing long chain omega-3 fatty acids in the diet

Find The Perfect Balance

With a dry and wet feeding routine, dry food supports positive oral health while wet food supports healthy hydration.


Keep your pet's feeding on schedule.  Set your order for Autoship to make sure you always have their veterinarian-recommended nutrition on hand.

About Royal Canin

What sets Royal Canin apart is their close collaboration with veterinarians. Through these professional partnerships, they strive to learn everything they can about pet health, including how different formulas perform for different breeds, sizes, lifestyles and therapeutic conditions.

Is this Food manufactured in the USA?
Answer by ChewyAug 19, 2020
This food is made in Royal Canin's manufacturing facilities in Missouri and South Dakota. All of Royal Canin's ingredients are sourced based on whether they meet their quality and food safety demands rather than with a sole focus on country of origin. Due to the heavy attention to the safety of their products, they don't release specific sourcing information as it could change from batch to batch based on whether a supplier is meeting their quality and safety standards.

Bad bag of food

Hello! This particular bag of food seems to have something wrong. The color is different than what we typically get and Blu is refusing to eat it. Is it possible that it could be stale or just a bad batch of food? We have never had a problem with the food before but unfortunately we are going to have to throw out the entire bag. (minus two scoops he refused to eat).

Resolved unexplained chronic diarrhea

Our pomsky cannot tolerate pultry, eggs and dairy. After a long search and switching him around to a few foods, a s expensive vet bills, we finally landed on this. His stomach has been great. We still give him some probiotics to firm up his stool omce or twice a week, but he has been eating it and doing well on it. I still can’t understand why is it so hard to find poultry and dairy free foods…

Great service!!!

Chewy's is the best! I was having a problem with a bad case of canned food. Plus in my bad judgement I changed my dogs prescription food. He hated it and wouldn't eat it. I was credited for the canned food, was able to order the old prescription food again(I'll mix the two). I got some canned that he could eat from the store until my order comes in. Thank you!!!

Chewy has what you need when you need it

My dog loves this food. He has severe allergies and has eaten it without problems for years and Chewy has it when no one else does. That's why I changed my auto delivery to Chewy!

Not For Our Dog

Our 10 year old cockapoo was prescribed this dog food bc our vet thinks his allergies come from his current dog food. We tried a very little amount for a week and it caused him to vomit, diarrhea and eventually he just would not eat it.
