Description

Royal Canin Canine Weight Control Small Dog is a veterinary-exclusive dry dog food specially formulated for weight control to promote maintenance of an ideal weight in spayed or neutered small dogs. The complete and balanced weight control diet includes precise calorie content and energy levels, which helps dogs maintain an ideal weight. It also includes a blend of soluble and insoluble fibers, including psyllium, that help him feel full and satisfied after eating. The unique kibble size and shape encourages chewing and creates a tooth-brushing effect that helps reduce tartar buildup. Plus, this diet has the exclusive S/O Index which means it promotes an environment unfavorable to crystal formation in the bladder.

Key Benefits
  • A veterinary-exclusive formula for spayed or neutered adult dogs weighing under 22 lb with a tendency to gain weight.
  • A special blend of fibers regulates appetite and energy intake, helping dogs feel full between meals.
  • Targeted nutrition promotes healthy digestion with prebiotics to nourish the microbiome.
  • Unique kibble shape and texture supports oral health by encouraging chewing for tartar control.
  • This diet has the exclusive S/O Index, which means it promotes a urinary environment unfavorable to the development of both struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.

Transition Instructions

Pets can be sensitive to sudden changes in their diets. For this reason, it is extremely important to follow a gradual transition plan to best support your pet's health and product effectiveness. It is recommended to follow at least a 7-day transition plan before exclusively feeding your pet a new food. Start by mixing 75% of your pet's current diet with 25% of the new diet on Day 1 and Day 2. On Day 3 and Day 4, mix 50% of the current diet with 50% of the new diet. On Day 5 and Day 6, mix 25% of the current diet with 75% of the new diet. On Day 7, you can feed your pet the new food exclusively. Ask your Veterinarian about the best way to transition your pet to a new food.

FAQ

Why should I buy veterinary diets from Chewy?

We offer competitive prices and free shipping on orders over $49. Plus, you'll save more if you sign up for automatic refills with Autoship at Checkout. Chewy experts are available 24/7 to answer any questions you have.

How do I order veterinary diets?

  1. Search for the diet your veterinarian recommends and add it to your cart. You can purchase your veterinary diets along with any other items you need.
  2. At Checkout, you'll be asked for your pet's name and veterinary clinic information so we can confirm that the item is authorized by your veterinarian.
  3. Place your order and we'll take care of contacting your veterinarian. If you have a copy of your authorization, you can expedite the process by uploading a scan or photo of it to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

If your clinic needs more information from you or recommends a different diet, we'll let you know immediately.

I have a copy of the authorization from my veterinarian. Can I send it to you?

Yes. If you have a paper copy of your veterinarian's authorization, you can upload a scan or photo to the Prescriptions section in your account or your order confirmation. You can also email it to vetdiet@chewy.com.

Can I use a veterinarian's authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state? Yes. We accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States, Canada, and U.S. territories such as Puerto Rico.

Why do I need a veterinarian's authorization?

Veterinary diets are formulated with the precise ingredients and nutrients needed to address specific medical issues. Because these diets are formulated for medical issues, veterinary authorization is needed to advise you on the best way to give them to your pet and to monitor your pet's health while they are on the diet.

Can someone else (such as a caretaker or family member) place an order for my pet?

Yes, but we'll need them to contact us and provide the full name of the pet's owner after the order is placed. This is so the veterinary clinic can locate your pet's records when we contact them. Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com or call us 24/7 at 1-800-672-4399.

Do authorizations expire?

Yes. Your veterinarian will tell us when your authorization expires and how many refills you have before they'd like you to check back in with them.

Can I set up automatic refills? Yes. Sign up for Autoship at Checkout and select how often you need refills. We'll automatically ship your veterinary diets for as long as your authorization allows. If you run out of refills or your authorization expires, we'll automatically contact your veterinarian for a new authorization.

What if I have more questions? How can I reach the veterinary diets team at Chewy?

Email us at vetdiet@chewy.com, start a chat on Chewy.com, or call us anytime at 1-800-672-4399. We're here for you 24/7.

    Disappointed

    By Vickila on Oct 7, 2021

    I'm disappointed that this veterinary RX required dry food has even more calories than the over-the-counter Royal Canin Weight Control formula!

    By SusieQ on Nov 3, 2020

    It’s been 6 years since I started eating this food. And i love it! Plus, it keeps me trim and healthy. I like it mixed w a little chicken, green bean, carrots, sweet potato, and home made chicken broth and warmed to perfection!
