About Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Health For Dogs

Worried About Your Dog’s Digestion?

Your dog’s gastrointestinal (GI) system helps support the rest of the body by properly digesting food and making sure to extract the nutrients needed for overall health. Your veterinarian is the expert on your dog, so you should always consult with this trusted advisor to find the best gastrointestinal health solutions and management options for your pet.

Know Your Dog’s GI System

  1. Stomach: the first part of the GI tract, where inflamation may lead to vomitting.
  2. Small Intestine and Pancreas: where the small intestine is responsible for absorption of nutrients within the diet and the pancreas aids in digestion; inflamation of the pancreas may be cause by a high fat diet or treats.
  3. Large Colon (Tranverse): which is responsible for forming stool.
  4. Large Colon (Descending): which is responsible for forming stool; any alteration to this process may lead to constipation or diarrhea.
  5. Rectum: where stool leaves the body

How Nutrition Can Help

Talk to your vet about your concerns for your pet's GI tract health. Your veterinarian may recommend a Royal Canin GI formula that is:

Easily digestible to help reduce the load on the gastrointestinal tract

Formulated with omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, and DHA to aid digestive health and antioxidants to support a healthy immune system

Highly palatable to encourage eating, even when appetite is decreased due to gastrointestinal upset

Balanced for good digestion, with a blend of fibers and prebiotics to support digestive health

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.

Questions & Answers

Does this dog food cause the dog to drink more water?
Answer by ChewyOct 01, 2018
This food is not formulated to stimulate thirst.

How large are the pieces of food? My dog needs tiny bite-size pieces due to missing some teeth and this doesn’t show a picture or describe the size of it at all
Answer by ChewySep 23, 2021
I have included a picture of the kibble below for reference.

The feeding guide only goes up to 88lbs. Is this not for big dogs? Are they guidelines that go up through 120lbs, or is it simple calculation using lower weights?
Answer by ChewyOct 18, 2020
Please refer to the photo below for the extended Feeding Guide. If you are unsure, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian.

Where it Royal Canin made?
Answer by ChewyAug 03, 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.

I was very skeptical when the vet said my dog needed to be put on a low fat diet and recommended Hill's Science and Royal Canin dog foods for her. My dog is very picky and I was really unsure she would eat either of these. We tried the Hill's first and sure enough she refused to eat any of it. We bit the bullet and tried the Royal Canin next and was shocked that she stuck her face right in the bowl and gobbled up the entire meal! Wonderful! This meant we could keep her healthy and not have to worry about getting too much fat in her diet. We even use it for treats when she asks for them. I recommend!

Just what the doctor ordered

My Tibetan Terrier and I spent two years trying to figure out why eating was giving him seizures, after he had had a serious and prolonged GI reaction to Credelio (he had been fine on Nexgard for the first three years of his life). The vets (all 14 of them) never quite figured it out, but one of the fixes (suggested by the Internal Medicine team at UCDavis) was the Royal Canin low fat GI diet, both kibble and canned. The canned food also serves as the medium for his 100 mg of gabapentin 2x daily--the pain dose, not the anti-seizure dose--which I blend in the canned food without the capsule. He gobbles that up. The kibble is more consistent in quality than the canned diet, which can sometimes be surprisingly greasy for what purports to be a low fat diet, and can give him GI trouble. I would rather have my TT on a whole food human-grade diet (per Dr. Pitcairn), but I can't risk fooling around with what he eats, because when he gets the wrong thing, whatever it may be, he is at risk for a seizure!

Chewy saved the day!

My sweet little dog was diagnosed with a Gastro disorder. This is the food that they told me would work and it did. When I went to order another bag from them, I was told they didn’t have anymore and could not get any more. Chewy saved the day! I signed up with Chewy went onto the site, and not only did you have it but you also shipped it out to me with plenty of time before I ran out of the other bag that I had. The whole process was so easy and I am so thankful that I found chewy.

Good stuff

My picky eater recently had a very scary bout of pancreatitis, and the vet recommended a GI food. I requested Royal Canin because I trust the brand. I add water to this kibble, and mix in a few ounces of the canned version, and she loves it! And so far, she’s really thriving on it! Yes, it’s expensive, but not nearly as expensive and scary as having to have your dog hospitalized. Totally worth it to me.

excessive urination and thirst

Had high hopes for this food as my westie had elevated lipase levels, and out of caution a low fat diet was recommended by my vet to reduce pancreatitis chances. Slowly mixed this food in to current food and my pup began to have excessive thirst and urination. Urine specific gravity got to 1.010. Also never was able to get consistent solid stool. Ended up stopping this food and excessive thirst and urination stopped. Reached out to RC company for concern of this and they dismissed. Back to figuring out what is best for my pup in low fat realm. Pup has no problems eating tho, very palatable for him. Another downfall is that for his weight of 22 lb to feed this food, it was over twice the amount of food needed compared to prev food to get to correct needed calorie content for his weight. So prev food needed 1 cup for 508 kcal, 1 cup of this was half so ended up having to double which sheer volume and multiple feedings a day to equate to enough kcal made my pup act bloated.

Paws Up Across the Board!

We feed all our dogs some version of Royal Canin simply because it's remedied issues and prevented further issues. Specifically, our French Mastiff could NOT stop having diarrhea when we first got her. We tried the Royal Canin canned low fat GI (that's what the rest of our crew eat) and still no luck. Our vet suggested we give the low fat GI *kibble* and voila! Haven't had an issue since!

Cu is doing great on his new food!

Cu is a rescued Old English Sheepdog with regurgitation problems, so we have to buy special food for him and give him an antacid twice a day so he keeps his food down. Our old vendor stopped making the food he was on, so our vet recommended this brand and it’s working. It might actually be better than the old brand. No regurgitating over here. Thumbs up!
