Description

The carefully formulated Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Gastrointestinal Moderate Calorie Dry Dog Food is designed to help keep your pup’s tummy healthy for a happy furbaby and a happy you, too! It delivers the nutrition your best friend needs when recovering from issues like vomiting, diarrhea and appetite loss. Prebiotics support a balance of good gut bacteria, while a blend of dietary fibers supports healthy digestion. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil help to nourish and soothe your dog’s GI tract for a comfy tummy. Plus, antioxidants support a strong, healthy immune system. In addition to all of these paw-some benefits, this food’s lower calorie content is ideal for weight maintenance, particularly for pups who tend to easily pack on a few extra pounds.

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.

    Chewy Rules!!!

    By on

    No words can express my gratitude for the efficient and kind service I receive from Chewy! My little dog suddenly was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, which required an immediate food change. I was on the autoship plan and also needed a script from the vet. Chewy immediately canceled the autoship and helped me get the script. Within three days I had the new med. My dog loves his new food and is doing well. Thank you, Chewy!

    I am guessing this food is good, my baby hasn't thrown it up and always runs to his bowl when its time to eat.

    Great food for a bad stomach

    By on

    My dog has a very sensitive stomach and is very picky. But he loves the hard food version and soft version too. I don't mind at all paying more money for premium food for him. I'm just thankful he's alive and healthy.

    My favorite dog food

    By on

    I have had such good luck with this food. I would feed it 100% of the time if I had endlessly deep pockets :) Anytime I have a dog with GI upset I put them on this and they do great on it. My only complaint is the price, but I know we're paying for the R&D so it's worth it.

    Sensitive belly

    By on

    My dog LOVES to eat and he will eat any food before him-doesn’t mean he should! At 10, his belly became “hyper” sensitive and I was making chicken and rice constantly. I received a sample of the Royal Canin Low fat GI food, which of course he ate. However, it didn’t fill him up and I was feeding him 4 times a day! So I went to the next kind up, the moderate, and he is definitely better on it for satiety. His poops are 90% better and very small now. I’m pleased overall with the food and what it does for my dog.

    IT'S WORKING!

    By on

    Loki, my 3-1/2 yr old Staffy, had developed an irritable bowel; maybe colitis. He was often scooting after two or three squats, but didn't have diarrhea, and his anal glands were normal So after trying many feeding strategies like adding pumpkin and rice to his lamb/rice (wholesome essentials) kibble his doctor decided to put him on this prescription kibble diet. The 22 lb bag comes out to just under four bucks a pound including tax -- the only reason it didn't get 5 stars, -- because Loki just loves it (I'm sure he read the invoice), and I'm trying to develop a taste for it myself, since it's just as expensive as anything else that I eat! His stools are now completely normal after Loki, my 3-1/2 yr old Staffy, had developed an irritable bowel; maybe colitis.

His stools are now completely normal after just a week, and no scooting. BUT, we'll have to see if there is something less expensive long term, because this is an outrageous price for dog kibble, and I can't find anything very exotic or expensive in the ingredients list! … more

    Finally!! GI issues solved

    By on

    Our 10 y/o German Shepherd started having GI issues several months ago. Allergy tests. Blood work, ultrasound showed PED and possible IBD. Started meds but still not enough relief for our boy. Started this food along with the canned formula and bone broth and VOILA!! Perfect poops! Thank you to Chewy for always asking how Cooper is doing and getting his food to us ASAP!!
