Description

Recommended by vets and loved by dogs, the Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Canine Selected Protein Adult KO Dry Dog Food is designed for dogs with food allergies. Because some foods can cause constant sneezing, excessive licking of the paws, gastrointestinal upsets, and skin eruptions, Royal Canin developed a special formula to keep your dog feeling great and happy. The protein in this diet is provided by kangaroo, which is well-suited for dogs with certain food sensitivities, and helps support digestive health and balanced intestinal flora.

Key Benefits
  • Complete and balanced selected-protein dry food diet.
  • Formulated for dogs diagnosed with food sensitivities resulting in dermatologic or gastrointestinal issues.
  • Protein in this diet is provided by kangaroo and enriched by vitamins and amino acids.
  • Helps support digestive health and balanced intestinal flora.
  • Contains EPA & DHA, long chain omega-3 fatty acids that promote a healthy skin and coat.

This product requires a veterinary prescription. Simply provide your vet's information during checkout and we'll follow up to confirm the prescription, or email a copy of your prescription to vetdiet@chewy.com and we'll get your order out right away.

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.

About Royal Canin Veterinary Diets - Dermatological Line

Can Food Help My Itchy Dog?

Can Food Help My Itchy Dog?

Scratching, biting and rubbing are signs of what is happening under your dog's coat. Skin issues in dogs can be due to food sensitivities and environmental irritants.

About Food Sensitivities

Food sensitivities are reactions to normally harmless proteins in the diet and can occur with a dog of any age. A food sensitivity is determined by a food elimination trial which is performed under the supervision of a veterinarian. Your veterinarian may choose a diet that contains hydrolyzed proteins (ones that have already been partially broken down) or novel proteins (ones that your pet is unlikely to have been exposed to).

About Food Sensitivities

Signs of Food Sensitivity

Sensitivities to the proteins in your dog's food or environmental irritants can result in a variety of clinical signs and only your veterinarian can determine if a veterinary-exclusive diet is appropriate for your pet. If a diet change is recommended, for best results, it is very important to feed only that food while strictly adhering to your veterinarian's feeding directions.

What About Enviromental Irritants

What About Enviromental Irritants

Like you, your dog can have sensitivities to certain things in the environment such as pollens, house dust or even fleas. Your veterinarian may recommend a diet that contains optimal amounts of vitamins and nutrients which helps reinforce your dog's skin barrier.

  • Dog isn't hopping to the feed bowl for this one....

    By on

    While we have used the hydrolyzed protein diet from Royal Canin with success in the past for our dog with allergies - we weren't so lucky with this food. Our vet recommended kangaroo as an option for Eugene, but he is not a fan. We mixed it with the hydrolyzed protein to make the diet change and he would literally take the time to pick out all the HP kibbles and left behind every KO kibble he encountered :( Now that his bowl contains solely the KO diet he refuses to eat. This was a total "no go" diet for our pup. Bummed because we have always be RC fans!

  • Hypoallergenic dog food

    By on

    Our 3-year old Yellow Lab has been exhibiting symptoms of either an environmental or food allergy. He had a staph infection near one of his testes. Based on the recommendation by our vet, took him to the local university veterinary school to meet with a canine dermatologist. She has recommended that we try this as part of a course of treatment. We've eliminated pretty much everything that he has had up to this point. Keeping our fingers crossed that this, along with other changes to his dietary needs will do the trick to clear up his allergies.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    My golden retriever came down with allergies and our vet put him through trials and narrowed it down to a food problem. Could not determine what ingredient was the problem without more extensive trials but suggested the royal canin ko because it was the best dog food for allergies and sensitive stomachs. He has been on this diet for a year now and has no more problems and loves the taste. Highly recommend it.

  • So far, so good...

    By on

    Our dog is allergic to just about everything and we had him on a raw diet for about a month, but that is a huge pain to prepare every morning, as well as the cost (~300/month!). We just switched to this as it's the only dry food that doesn't have ingredients he's allergic to. I hope it continues to work and not start to cause reactions to his allergies!

  • Great for dogs with protein allergy

    By on

    My pup has been on several Royal Canin products since birth, she developed food allergy very young. This food helps greatly and she likes it. Better for her than even Ultimino was and she likes much better, Wish company would make their hypo allergenic foods for small breeds. They are al big kibble and we have to to put in blender to cut down. That why the 4 and not a 5.

  • Finger's Crossed

    By on

    Only time is going to tell right now, our sweet little dog is allergic to chicken just to name one of her allergies. I understand that the chicken fat in the Royal Canin is metabolized differently than the "flesh" protein. I am watching, for she does shake her head, has licked her feet SO finger's are crossed that it will not cause a "flare". I do know that Science Diet ingredients of their special hydrolyzed chicken protein almost killed her and cost us almost a $1000.00 to save her life. Understanding that Royal Canin bought Science Diet now. Her vet recommended Royal Canin KO since Iams no longer makes any veterinary lines. She can only tolerate Kangaroo meat and oatmeal, no grain or legumes Only time is going to tell right now, our sweet little dog is allergic to chicken just to name one of her allergies.

  • Royal Canin FINALLY replaced the IAMS KO they discontinued when they took over!

    By on

    My lab/border collie mix has had allergies since the day I adopted him and after a long series of elimination food trials and many dog foods we found IAMS KO. Unfortunately, when IAMS discontinued their veterinary line of foods, my dog suffered months of diarrhea because we couldn't find a suitable food. Low and behold, this appeared on the market a few months back and the ingredient list was (basically) the same as the Iams KO, so we gave it a shot. After 2 months my dog is back to his "pre-discontinued Iams KO" self!!!

  • I REALLY wanted my dog to like this food.

    By on

    At the behest of my Standard Poodle's Veterinarian, I bought this food thinking it could be the answers to our prayers...but he wouldn't touch it. No matter how I offered it to him (moist or dry, with kangaroo canned food, etc), he would eat around the kibble. He couldn't afford to lose any weight, so we reluctantly returned the food to Chewy.com and opted for something else.

  • Great food for dogs with allergies

    By on

    Our border collie has been suffering from allergies for the last few years. Vet recently suggested for us to try this prescription food. What a difference in allergy symptoms. Very little itching, scratching and no hair loss. The food is well worth the cost and we have 4 dogs to feed. Highly recommend this dog food.

  • KO Dry Dog Food

    By on

    The KO has a unique protein base that our dog had been introduced to several years ago, which proved to be the only thing he could tolerate. We were glad to see this protein based food re-appear on the market. Please keep making it available. Our dog loves it and keeps him in good condition.
