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.

    My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has a heart murmur and this food was prescribed to us by the Cardiologist and our veterinarian. We were told to ween him by mixing it with his regular food (still Royal Canin brand). I ordered the food online and thought it may be a hassle because the prescription had to be confirmed through our vet, etc. The prescription was approved within 1 hour of purchasing, Customer Service emailed me back within a few minutes each time I had a question, and our delivery was on our doorstep the very next morning!!! As for the food, we have been mixing the two foods for a couple of weeks now.

  • great shipping service - food was ok

    By on

    i give 5 stars for the fast shipping and customer service, was able to get a refund no problem whatsoever. my dog however really did not like the food. he has a pretty bad heart condition, but his cardiologist said I can give me chicken with no salt, sweet potatoes, veggies etc, since he needs to eat. i've tried everything i could to get him to eat this food. he is almost done with the first bag, but only because i mixed it with his old food - blue buffalo wilderness - otherwise he just would not eat.

  • My min pin Taz loves it

    By on

    He has been on low sodium diet for about 7 months. The first food was hills prescription diet h/d. He took a week to be okay with the food he didn’t like the flavor. I heard people say they add broth but with a low sodium diet that’s the last thing you should do. It’s also hard to find in stock at local pet supply. Plus it’s costly for him to hate it. I decided to search for another flavor/ brand and this was it. He loves it and has even put on 2 lbs which I have to say isn’t good but shows he likes it a lot. He walks up and checks his bowl.

  • Lifesaver!

    By on

    Royal Canin has literally saved my little man's life! After dealing with degenerative heart disease for nine months, including five trips to the ER in oxygen etc., I was cooking food for him basically on trial and error. He would like a certain recipe for a few days and then I'd have to guess at something else. Finally the cardiologist recommended a very expensive medication for nausea and stomach upset. I researched dog food and after calling the company found that the Early Cardiac Dry Food met the requirements for Bam Bam's heart condition. HE LOVES IT! He's been eating this food for about two weeks now, and is stronger and happier than he has been in several months. No guessing on my part Royal Canin has literally saved my little man's life!

He's been eating this food for about two weeks now, and is stronger and happier than he has been in several months. No guessing on my part if he's getting the correct amount of nutrients, sodium, protein, etc., and I can leave the food out for several hours without worrying that it's spoiled and having to throw it away. Bam Bam is only 5 lbs. and cannot eat very much at one time, so this is a huge plus! … more

  • Not for small breeds

    By on

    Before she got sick we fed our chihuahua Royal Canin dry food for chihuahuas as it consisted of small kibbles appropriate for her size. I was hoping this veterinary food would be the same since the description says it was for all breeds; small, medium and large. Unfortunately that is not the case. The size of each pellet is just too large for chihuahuas and other small breeds. I am still searching for a veterinary dry dog food, for heart or kidney, that is small enough for our girl.

  • So far, so good!

    By on

    So far my picky eater is doing very well and enjoying his new food. I was very nervous when the get prescribed the cardiac formula for my 10 year old boy. He has been raised his entire life on a special holistic formula and would never touch any other food.

  • Great Product

    By on

    The vet recommended feeding this food to my 11 year old lab, due to his larger than normal heart. I have notice a significant difference in his breathing and all around health. He really seems to like this food and has been eating everyday.
