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

24 Customer Questions

Is the cup measurements for feeding instructions a per-day suggestion? Or per-meal? I.e. I feed my dog 2 times per day... it says she gets 2 1/2 cups. Per day? Or per meal? She eats 2 cup 2 times a day and is still on the thin side.
Answer by ChewyDec 03, 2017
The feeding instructions are per day. Consult your prescribing veterinarian to ensure you're feeding the correct amount for your pet's weight.

Where is this made
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2022
Royal Canin has manufacturing facilities in Nebraska, Missouri, South Dakota and Guelph Canada.

Number of cups in 22 lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2020
There will be approximately 4 cups of kibble per pound. The 8.8 pound bag will have close to 35 cups and the 22 pound bag close to 88 cups.

Does this food help them gain weight?
Answer by ChewyMay 16, 2022
This palatable, digestible dog food supports digestive health with high fat and calorie content, so you can feed your dog small portions to support their sensitive stomach. This also helps underweight dogs or dogs who are eating less get the calories they need. Prebiotics help maintain the balance of good bacteria in the gut. A blend of dietary fibers supports healthy digestion for optimal stool quality. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, from fish oil help soothe the GI tract. And a precise blend of antioxidants supports a healthy immune system. Due to your pets specific health concern, we recommend consulting your Veterinarian to see what would be the safest fit for your pets current treatment plan.

Excellent prescription dry food

My 5 yr old 13 lb. mix has had some GI issues. Our vet prescribed Royal Canin Gastrointestinal dry/wet for her symptoms. We have been on this dry food for a few months now and am glad to say it is doing its job. Excellent food, she seems to eat it readily, her stools have become regular , though small in caliber, which my vet recently told me was acceptable and often seen when dogs are on high quality digestible foods such as this. Her issues have decreased and appear to be manageable now, so willing to pay the slightly higher price for this prescription formula. Royal canin is a brand that is worth it to us.

Canin good product but getting it a bite

Great product and our pup who was a street dog has thrived on it BUT the pseudo procedure of having to get a vet approval to buy it is bunk. Makes logistics of simply spending money unnecessarily cumbersome. Marginally worth the hassle.

Game changing!

This food within one meal changed my golden doodles stool from wet and soupy and unpleasant for everyone to nice and solid and compact He used to have to walk all over the yard to complete a bowel movement and they were so difficult to clean up Hes now quick and easy in the bathroom. Worth every penny

Great product and service

Our Cocker Spaniels have sensitive stomachs and Royal Canin is the only food we have found that they can eat. While Chewy has had problems getting stock (totally out of their control), they deliver on time and quickly.

Tali and Kismet love Chewy

Chewy always makes it right. We got the wrong food by accident. Chewy immediately sent the right one. Thanks

I don't believe that this product is only with prescription from your vet. The main ingredient in this food is chicken byproducts. There is not one good ingredient in it. I wouldn't pay $40 for this bag even without prescription.

Great Help

I never had to order perscription dog food. The customer service gave all the info about a special diet food. Since the dogs only weigh 5 pounds and one has no teeth, the pellets had to be very small. After reading all the information, the customer service fou out the pelles were about the size of an M&M. The research she did let me know that my pets could swallow the food easily.

Finicky Dog Loves His New Food

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are notorious for being finicky eaters. So when our vet needed to prescribe a special diet for Bentley, I thought, "this should be fun". He's gobbling it down and his gatrointestinal problems are getting better every day. I'm a very relieved, happy mom for my sweet little boy.
