Description

If your pup suffers from food-triggered skin and GI issues, Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Ultamino Adult Dry Dog Food can be an important first step in making life better. This specially-formulated food is made with special proteins that have been broken down so they’re less likely to trigger the immune response that causes skin and digestive issues. It contains an essential nutrient complex designed to support skin health as well as an exclusive fiber blend that promotes healthy digestion. It’s great as a short-term elimination diet or as a long-term maintenance food for dogs with protein-induced sensitivities.

Key Benefits
  • Special vet-exclusive canine formula was designed to eliminate proteins that can activate the immune response and cause skin and digestive issues.
  • Proteins are broken down to a smaller size that the immune system can’t recognize as an allergen.
  • Contains a proprietary nutrient complex to help reinforce the skin barrier and promote cell regeneration.
  • Made with a blend of fibers to help with healthy digestion.
  • Appropriate as an elimination trial diet or for long-term maintenance feeding.

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 - 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.

FAQ

Why should I buy Veterinary Diets online?

How do I order Veterinary Diets?

  2. At checkout, you’ll be asked for required information. Enter your pet’s name and your vet’s name & telephone number.
  3. Place your order, and we’ll take care of the rest!

How will you contact my vet?

Our Veterinary Diets team will personally contact your vet for approval. If your clinic needs more information from you or recommends a different diet, we’ll let you know immediately.

Does it help if I send you my veterinarian’s authorization?

Yes! If you have a paper copy of your vet’s authorization, email a picture to vetdiet@chewy.com, start a chat, or fax it to 1-800-619-7973.

Can I use a veterinarian’s authorization if it was written by a veterinarian out of state?

Of course! We can accept valid authorizations from anywhere in the United States and Canada—that includes US territories, like 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. If you don’t have a paper authorization, no sweat—once you provide your vet’s information, our team will take over.

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

Yes, but we’ll need them to provide us with the full name of the pet’s owner’s name via phone, email or chat after the order is placed, so the clinic can locate your pet’s records when we contact them.

How can I help expedite my order?

Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Create your pet’s profile on Chewy.com.
  2. If you have an Autoship scheduled, but you’re running low on your Veterinary Diets, contact us ahead of time to let us know if you have a new clinic or if any authorization information has changed.
  3. If you have an authorization handy, send it to us before you order—by sending an email to vetdiet@chewy.com, starting a chat with one of our experts, or faxing us at 1-800-619-7973.

Do I need to set up a pet profile?

We recommend it, but it’s not required. You can create your pet’s profile by logging in at Chewy.com, hovering over your account, and choosing “pet profile.”

Do authorizations expire?

Yes. Your vet will tell us when your authorization will expire and how many times we can send before they’d like you to check back in with them.

Can I set up automatic refills?

Yep! Sign up for Autoship and 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 vet for a new authorization. If we hit any bumps in the road, we’ll let you know right away.
