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.

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.

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!

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.

Beware of Grain Mites!!!

I called Chewy in a panic when I saw this in my dogs new food bag, these are not ants because the ant traps I have are not catching anything. They are sending me a new bag of food which is nice but now I have to replace all my dogs food related items! It’s a bummer because this is the only food he can eat so I have to try it again. This picture is how small they are after I sprayed them with bug spray and had to throw away his new puzzle bowl :(

Finally delivered to my front door

My vet had switched all of us to Purina Direct. Well they started leaving it on the street like you had. I called Purina and they told me that was my problem. When I called to switch back to Royal Canin from you, your representative made sure the delivery department had it delivered just as you advertise. Lo and behold not on the street to be stolen like before. This is the way it is supposed to be. Thank you.

Suggested for allergies

My vet recommended we change my English bulldogs food in an effort to help her allergies. She ate the first bag okay but we didn’t see any relief in her itching and other allergy symptoms but we realized it could take time. We received the second bag and our dog will not eat it. Feeding time used to be one of her favorite things and now we have to coax her to her bowl. This bag seems to be more crumbly, like crumbs at the bottom of the bag but it is throughout so that could be an issue. Regardless, we will be trying a different food to help with her allergies.

Hydrolyzed protein dry dog food.

My dog is not crazy about the dry food as she is with the canned. She’ll eat it but not the same way she eats the canned. I do mix it which makes it a little better for her

Good at a price

My dog was diagnosed with IBD, having tried other dog foods he just would not eat. He now eats it all every meal and seams to love it. I feed him one cup 3 time a day he will eat it dry, but I usually serve it with warm water on it which helps him digest it and hydrates him. Just wish that it wasn't so expensive.
