Feeding guides are general recommendations only. The amount of food required by your dog may vary above or below that listed in this feeding guide. It is recommended that your dog be fed 2 to 4 equal portions of the diet per day.

Ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times. Store this product in a cool, dry place.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are Royal Canin diets preserved?

All of our dry diets are preserved naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid, and rosemary extract. Our canned diets are naturally preserved and sterilized during the cooking and canning process.

Where do the ingredients in Royal Canin diets come from?

We select our ingredients based on multiple factors, including the supplier’s compliance with our quality and food safety requirements, consistent availability, and on the nutrients required to meet the dietary needs of the pet.

Royal Canin is making strides towards sustainability by attempting to obtain sources of raw materials as close to each manufacturing facility as possible. In some cases, we use international suppliers, because only those suppliers can offer raw materials that comply with our quality and food safety standards.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain by-products?

Royal Canin chooses ingredients because they deliver high-quality nutrients that support our customized pet food formulas. Using chicken by-product meal instead of chicken meal for example will allow Royal Canin to maintain its highly customized nutrient standards while achieving a more secure and sustainable supply.

Why do some Royal Canin diets contain grains?

Grains can be a healthy part of any cat or dog’s diet. As always, we focus on the nutrients each ingredient provides and grains can provide many important nutrients.

How do you ensure Royal Canin diets are safe for my pet?

Our Quality and Food Safety systems are state-of-the-art and we continue to invest heavily in new technology to make sure they remain that way.

  • We put our suppliers through a rigorous selection process that doesn’t end with our first purchase.
  • We monitor every load delivered to our plants to verify the safety and quality of the ingredients we use to make pet food.
  • We perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to our customers.
  • We manufacture every pet food we sell, in plants that we own; our plants are ISO 9001:2008 certified for Quality Management and ISO 22000 certified for Food Safety.

How do I know which Royal Canin diet is right for my pet?

Based on size, age, lifestyle, and breed, each cat or dog has unique nutritional needs. For healthy pets, use our Product Selector to find the right diet for your cat or dog.

If your pet is experiencing health issues, please refer to your veterinarian for more information. Your veterinarian will consider multiple factors when recommending an appropriate diet.

    Well, I had tried to order this dog food for my English bulldog back several months ago. Chewys had let me know that it is a prescription dog food and they could not send it until I had a prescription or permission from him Vet. I never got that permission, ( I jut go and purchase it there) but then the order showed up at my door completely out of the blue. I am confused as to why you all went ahead and sent it. I don't like this happening this way because of trying to keep up with the billing. As far as I knew the order was canceled because I never followed through with the Dr. I do not want this to be a monthly thing be cause I have found him a cheaper food.

  • What a difference a day (and new kibble) can make!

    By on

    My golden doodle has suffered with terrible bouts of GI distress off and on for his 7 years. In the past month, he was at the local ER and then back to our vets office 3 weeks later due to bloody diarrhea and vomiting and lethargy. Blood work, X-ray and ultrasound ruled out most common causes of his symptoms (e.g. blockage, pancreatitis). We are now ruling out a food allergy and thus began an elimination trial using Ultamino. I'm not gonna lie, Wheeler LOVES his treats and dearly misses them. That said, within 24 hours of using Ultamino, his energy dramatically improved, he has normal stools and he's back to his usual playful self. I'm frankly shocked and hopeful we're on the right track.

His appetite is great and he's eaten without any signs of trouble. I'm grateful to Chewy for their prompt service and wide range of products. This one may just change my dog's life for the better! … more

  • Highly recommend!!!

    By on

    Yes it's expensive but this food saved is money in the long run. Our girl is an 18 month lab and she used to have recurring ear infections and bald spots as well as issues with her skin and coat. The vet kept prescribing antibiotics and we were taking her for follow up appointments every 2 weeks. He suspected food allergies but experimenting with various proteins was not successful. He finally recommended this food as advised by a dermatologist. We are very strict with her diet. She only eats this food with hair and coat vitamins (not fish based) and gets coconut oil or omega 3 oil (again not fish based) with each meal. For treats she gets raw carrots.

We suspect that she may be allergic to fish therefore we don't even want to give her supplements with fish in it. She's been on this diet since February. Ear infections never came back. Coat grew back and looks healthy. Her stools are small and it looks like she is absorbing the maximum amount of nutrients from her food. Most importantly she is active and happy and loves her food. Mommy and daddy are also happy because we don't have to take her to the vet every 2 weeks :) the vet said that we should do a food challenge in order to see what she is in fact allergic to but I am hesitant because she is doing so great on this food and I don't want to go through the same problems again. I wish the price was lower but I guess you have to pay more if you want to keep the problem under control. My anxiety is gone and she is happy. That's all that matters :) please give this food a chance. Also I forgot to add that Mia is a silver lab and they are prone to skin and coat issues. … more

  • Not confident yet!!

    By on

    My lab was just prescribed this food for possible IBD, and I'm still transitioning her from Hills I/D Low Fat wet. Tomorrow will be her first day solely on this. Since my lab has difficulty digesting kibble (This stuff is hard as rocks), I have to soak it overnight, because they don't make it in canned. And it takes SEVERAL hours to actually get soft, so I have to start soaking the night before. Disappointed about this for sure!! Her symptoms are no better yet, but I'm praying this food helps!

  • My dog loves it, but the fat content is too high.

    By on

    My veterinarian initially recommended this for my dog, who has IBD and food intolerances, after the Royal Canin Selected Protein PV (venison) became unavailable. My dog loves it, but unfortunately the fat content is quite a bit higher than the other Selected Protein feeds (which my dog does NOT love). Because my dog has a history of pancreatitis I have to be careful of the fat content in her food, and this one is just too high for her. I give her a very small amount of it in a puzzle toy as dessert after her regular meal, and she enjoys that, but as a main source of nutrition I just can't risk it. :(

  • Been on this food 5 years since name change

    My eight-year-old German Shepherd has been on this food since he was about 2 1/2 when it was not even called Ultimino. It was called Anallergenic formula. The veterinariak put him on this and I was really hesitant to use it. He had a lot of stomach issues at the time and even though we did the allergy testing nothing was truly significant to a point where it should have quite that much problem. I figured what the heck let's give it a shot. To be perfectly honest he has been on this for so long and is doing really good. He also has cephalosporin responsive diarrhea which was discovered through a scope so this food has really given him a great quality of life and has also helped any digestive My eight-year-old German Shepherd has been on this food since he was about 2 1/2 when it was not even called Ultimino.

  • Mistey says a big 'woof'

    By on

    Mistey was having a difficult time digesting her food. Soft stools, under weight, and low energy. We tried several high quality foods but nothing changed. Our Vet suggested this food and the change was dramatic. Firm stools, weight gain, more energy. But the best part is Mistey loves it. (Mistey is a 2 and 1/2 year old Greyhound)

    My 11 year old boy, Atticus, has trouble with pancreatitis and we just recently went through another bout of it and also now he has food allergies. We tried several different types of foods to calm his stomach and bowels and the only thing that works is Royal Canin Ultamino but getting it from our veterinary clinic is too expensive. So I found a very good price on Chewy.com but you need a prescription authorization from the doctor. The folks at Chewy not only responded the same day sending for the authorization but my vet also responded the same day (Wednesday) and we received the bag of food before 10:30 on Friday.

  • The PERFECT food!

    By on

    Our 2.5 year old chocolate lab had been dealing with anal gland issues and itchy ears for months and loose stools since he was a puppy. We had switched foods so many times trying to fix the issues, until our vet prescribed this food for him and it has helped everything! We started ordering from Chewy because it is pretty pricey food. Even my vet couldn't get it for a low as we are getting in on Chewy. The only thing about this food: I once put my dog's breakfast down while he was outside, and it must be so delicious that the cat tried to eating some! ;)
