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 inflammation may lead to vomiting.
  2. Small Intestine and Pancreas: The small intestine is responsible for nutrient absorption and the pancreas aids digestion. A high-fat diet or treats may cause pancreatic inflammation.
  3. Large Colon (Transverse): Responsible for forming stool.
  4. Large Colon (Descending): Integral to stool formation—any disruption here may lead to constipation or diarrhea.
  5. Rectum: Where stool leaves the body.

How Nutrition Can Help

Talk to your vet about your dog’s GI tract and what diet can help keep it healthy. 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, plus antioxidants for immune support.

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

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.

Fixed the mushy poop

I purchased this puppy food for my recent litter of Sheepadoodles. When they started solids, their stools were very soft. Then their mom got into some naughty foods and nursed the puppies and gave them even worse diarrhea. (Nine puppies with pudding poos was not my idea of a good time!!). At my vets recommendation, I purchased this food and started immediately. Their poops went from cow patties to firm tootsie rolls almost overnight! I love this food also because the puppies don’t poop as much either. All the food is used as fuel for their tiny bodies. The only problem I have is it’s SO very expensive and it’s also only available via Veterinary prescription. I am a long time (30+ Years) Science Diet believer but seeing results from this Royal Canin food, I will strongly consider switching all my animals to try Royal Canin

The cure to our puppies stomach

Now, I still add a probiotic to our puppies food, but when I tell you our puppy was only able to have loose stools, I mean it. We could not even pick them up due to it being liquid. Finally, our vet wrote us a prescription to try this food and it has worked. Solid stools consistently and we are so happy our dog is more comfortable.

It's a miracle!

We battled digestive problems with our two pups for over a month. We tried Purina Pro Plan, boiled chicken and rice and daily supplements of FortiFlora. Our vet prescribed this food and it fixed their loose stools literally overnight! We're on our second bag now and will keep them on RC Gastrointestinal long term.

Great product

My dog Luna was having diarrhea for several weeks. I had tried taking her off her previous kibble, tried rice and boil ground turkey without good impact. Took her to the vet who recommended this kibble and on day 1 I saw improvement, since she has been on this kibble she has not had diarrhea.

excellent food

I tried several different brands of food for my new puppy. He was vomiting at least once a day and sometimes more. The vet recommended the Royal Canin Veterinary Diet and it has solved my puppy's sensitive stomach problems.

Dog food and review

Only because he has to have this food. Was on delay regarding needing a RX for it. I asked rep if Chewy needed my RX and he said no. Then the Veternary changed his food to low fat. It took over a week to get the food.

Great Food

My Corgi Puppy was having random bouts of bad vomiting and diarrhea. My vet recommended this food and it has been amazing! He LOVES this kibble and I use it as training treats. His poops are smaller and we haven't had any issues with him tummy since starting it. I switched him from purina pro plan puppy sensitive skin and stomach.

Immediate Benefits & Sustainable

Perfect poops even with other daily treats! About to switch over from puppy to adult. Highly recommend. Also my dog is a bit of a picky eater so there’s that if it helps.
