About Royal Canin Dermatology For Dogs

Worried About Your Dog’s Skin Health?

Skin health concerns are common and can appear anywhere on your dog’s body. Your veterinarian is the expert on your dog’s health, so you should always consult with this trusted advisor to find the best solutions for your pet. This specialized expertise is why Royal Canin works closely with veterinarians to develop formulas that support skin health.

Common Causes of Skin Health Concerns

Environmental Sensitivities

Pollen, plants and dust are environmental factors that can trigger an immune response in some dogs.

Food Sensitivities

Your veterinarian may recommend a diet elimination trial to help determine if your pet has a sensitivity to certain proteins in his current diet.


Your dog can pick up external parasites such as mites, fleas, ticks and lice from contaminated sources, both indoors and out


Puppies, older dogs, and dogs that have recently been ill may be more susceptible to bacterial infections that can lead to skin health concerns.

How Can Nutrition Help?

Your veterinarian may recommend a Royal Canin Dermatology formula for your dog. These special formulations can:

Aid digestive health by regulating movement through the GI tract and supporting balanced digestive flora

Support the skin’s natural protective barrier

Aid cellular health with a complex blend of antioxidants.

Promote healthy skin and coat by providing long chain omega-3 fatty acids in the diet

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

About Royal Canin

What sets Royal Canin apart is their close collaboration with veterinarians. 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. Ongoing research and development allows Royal Canin to keep providing the precise nutrition dogs need for a range of medical conditions.

Stopped poop eating!

I have a 3 year old American Bulldog. About 85 lbs. she has struggled with diarrhea ever since she was a puppy. Also had a nasty habit of turning around and eating her diarrhea as soon as she pooped. Gross! Tried every food imaginable and every feces eating deterrent known to man. NONE worked. Switched to HP Royal Cannin and it all went away! Plus, her poops are about 1/2 the size of her Lab brother who is eating non HD food. The cons…. It’s SUPER expensive as she eats 4 cups a day. The large bag only lasts me about 3 weeks. At $115.00/bag with the auto shipping discount, it’s pricey. Because of the price of the food, I have tried mixing other foods in with this and given her half and half. Unfortunately she would not tolerate any of the other foods I try to mix in with this food. In my attempt to save a few dollars, I failed. I just need to keep her on this and pay the extra cost. It makes her happy and she loves the food.

Amazing difference

My vet recommended this food due to an IBD flare. Within 2 days my Golden Retriever had normal stools and no itch. He has not been able to be off Apoquel for 3 years. This food has relieved his GI problems and his itchy skin/ red ears. And he likes it. Highly recommend

French Bulldog Allergy Saver

We have been back and forth trialing a gazillion options for our cream Frenchie, Bison. This had worked wonders on his skin and coat. He enjoys eating it, and as long as it helps keep his skin calm and coat shiny and health optimal - it's a winner. Two paws up from this Frenchie Mom :)

Goodbye Runny Poo

Our boxer's sensitive stomach affected her appetite and stool. Upon our vet's recommendation we switched to Royal Canin HP. Our dog regained a healthy appetite and her stool stiffened. She looks great and shares her love and vigor with us every day.

It’s helped so much!

My 8 year old bully mix stopped eating his food 2 months ago and was extremely uncomfortable. After a ton of visits to the vet and internal med vet, we discovered he has possible IBD. The internal med vet swapped him from the hills diet food his normal vet put him on ( which did not help ) to the HP Royal Canin 3 weeks ago and he has not skipped a meal or been uncomfortable since. He’s finally his goofy self that I missed.

Finally an IBD friendly food my dog will eat

After a scary incident where my dog was hospitalized with an acute IBD flare up, the vet gave us samples of several hydrolyzed protein foods to try. My dog turned her nose up to all of them except the Royal Canin HP kibble and canned formulas. She gobbles it right up and so far (2 months and counting) she hasn't had any recurrent symptoms of her IBD and she's back to a healthy weight. It's pricey but well worth it if you compare it to the vet and hospital bills incurred by using a regular dog food. Happy healthy dog = happy dad!

Poor Nutriinal Value

My vet recommended this food for my dog. My dog has high ALP liver enzymes. My dog did ok on this food for a while but then I noticed she was lethargic. I found out this food is not healthy. I now have her on a vegetarian diet, and she is energetic and happy again.

Ok...hard to feed when no appetite

My dog is going through kidney and IBD issues. My vet recommended Hills or Royal Canin. We decided the Royal Canin since it sounded like it would be easy to digest and easy on the kidneys. Well it is. It does work and my cats love eat it, but my dog doesn't. I have to add water and hand feed her the food because she doesn't or afraid to eat. Once I fight her a bit she will eat a little bit. But the next day she is feeling better and zooming all around. She wouldn't do this with other food so it must make her feel better. I also not a fan of huge bags 3 lbs to 5 lbs is more than enough per purchase ...not a 7 lbs bag.

Royal Canin

We use Royal Canin Hydrolyzed wet & dry food for all three of our Westies, last shipment received 4 Stars, nay because the package was damaged, otherwise it would have been the regular Five Star rating :-)

Delivered as promised

I was fostering a puppy with special dietary needs. I was getting short on kibble so I ordered from Chewy. They were able to get the prescription from the vet and delivered it a day earlier than I expected. Thank you!
