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.

  • So Far, So Good!

    By on

    My little dog has IBD and was recently put on this dry food as of 12/1/17. She loves the food and had no issues accepting it or keeping it down. It will be some time before we know if it really helps the situation, but I am hopeful that with her medications she can get her IBD under control. I will keep you posted.

    We have been using this food for several months, but it is only available at our Vet Dermatologist, which is a long drive during the work day... but Chewy got it to me the day after I ordered it - no delivery fee - I am a VERY HAPPY customer, and I love that this helps me keep my dogs healthy!

  • Perfect for Paddy

    Our schnauzer has food allergies and protein spills. Most dog foods don't agree with his stomach or give him diarrhea. The Royal Canin Vegetarian Dry Dog Food is wonderful! He likes the food and has no digestive upset! He eats it readily. Great choice for us

  • Finally a solution to food allergies

    By on

    My 5 year old pug was suffering from allergies. He was on Apoquil, steroids, special shampoos...Nothing helped his hot spots, licking his hair right off or tummy upsets. I took my dog to see a dermatologist and she immediately put him on this food. After just a week I could tell he was doing better (no more tummy upsets). After a month his hair grew back. It turned out that he is allergic to all meat proteins, soy (no matter what form it is in), dairy, egg, grains (including oatmeal)...he can not even be washed with oatmeal shampoo. All that time he suffered...This food saved him from any more food allergy suffering and may have even saved his life.
