My now 2 y/o has been on this kibble since 6 months of age. She has a very sensitive stomach - supposedly IBS - but this food does it for her.
Excellent product. I have 4 dogs: 2 rotties, a staffi and a french mastiff X am bulldog (very sensitive, anything wrong he eats his skin turns red and eyes become very irritated). With this product I can feed the same food to every one ... the mastiff X is the worry, but I have been feeding him this food for a could of years now and he has never had any reaction. Also, they all seem to love it and they have never left anything. I also use it as treats during training!
My dachshund has an intolerance to chicken. As soon as we switched to the hypoallergenic dry food she stopped being sick, her stools were less smelly and she stopped biting her feet/legs. She’s been on it for about 18 months now, but is now having trouble with her anal glands. So we’ve decided to continue with one feed of the hypoallergenic, but replace a meal with Harrington’s lamb and rice food to see if sorts the problem out.
All over goodnesses , sorted both skin and tummy problems out , wouldn’t use anything else for my English pointers
We have a 9 month old lab puppy. Every since we got him, we have visited the vets every month for sickness and loose stools. There were other problems too: needing the toilet in the night, hyper behaviour, fidgeting etc. Generally a not very comfortable puppy. We tried different food and we were finally advised to carry out our own food trail. Solely using this Royal Canine food. It has changed him! He has normal stools, no more sickness, he sleeps through the night and is calmer.
My 8 year old dog has sadly climbed over the rainbow, he was on this food for 4 years and thoroughly enjoyed it, as a treat stick the kibble weighed food into a ball that they can nibble on or pop one kibble to each ice cube hole fill with water freeze and give to them now and again through the hot days, a sure way to keep you dog hydrated whilst being feed
My two dogs love it. One of my dogs has allergies & bowel disease. I have tried him on different food, but this is the only food that works wonders for him. My other dog is fine to eat other foods, but tends to set off my dogs allergies so she eats the same as him, & everything is fine. I have recommended this food to a number of dog owners who have issues, most have changed over to this one, & they have been very happy with the results. The only issue I f8nd is, the cost, it's gone up!
My dog was diagnosed with sensitive tummy and the vet recommend to try this food before any other investigations.... It's been almost 2 years now and he is still living this food..
Our chocolate lab has a very sensitive stomach suspected to be an intolerance although we've not yet been able to identify to what. We'd tried almost every sensitive food on the market until we found this. The vet had recommended it to us but the price point had been unattainable - this is nearly half the price than everywhere else! Since she's been eating this food she has been so much happier, has no trouble going to the toilet in the right places!
This feed seems to be working so far for our dog. She always licking paws due to some kind of allergy. Vet suggested changing food and recommended this. Seems to be working so far!
We have labs - one has a very sensitive stomach, vet thinks IBS likely. Since changing to this food, we now have no issues and perfect health :-)
We have Dog de Bordeaux and he is allergic. I am very happy that I find out about this food. It is very good and my dog's skin condition improved a lot! I am buying this food for over a year and will not switch to anything else!!!
Kazan is happy little bit fussy.But never itchy and sad looking Shiba inu, white eczema and weepy ayes. Food prescribed by our Vet.
After being told to use this food by our vet,after our dog was diagnosed with IBD, I must admit I was sceptical about how good it could be after trying many other foods over serveral months to help my dog problem, but it works so well her symptoms ceased in a few days of being on the food and she has been on this food for two years with no further issues or trips to the vets would highly recommend this food to anyone and my dog loves it too which helps.
My 5yr old French Bulldog Lily suffers from Demodex mites to her face due to a low immune system. We have now got this under control but I think the food helps so much. Since we have had her on DR21 she is so much happier in herself. Having a low immune system it is so important that she gets all the nutrients she needs digested quickly into her system and her skin and coat is now in excellent condition. I know this is expensive but it is worth every penny This is the cheapest company I have found and by buying it in bulk it saves so much more money.
My 6yr old Lhasa Apso bitch had been suffering from colitis for some months. She was very unhappy, had lost a lot of weight and had repeated courses of antibiotics and steroids from the vets. Eventually my vet suggested the Royal Canin Hypoallergenic food. She has now been on this for a few months and has a new lease of life! I am delighted. Yes, the food is quite expensive, but not as expensive repeated vets bills! Plus my dog is happy again!
Our dogs both absolutely loved the taste of this food, unfortunately it didn't agree with the other one's stomach and made the other one itchy. Might be worth a try for fussy eaters.
Following my original review on this food last year, Jenkins is now 3yrs 4mths & still having the same food. I enquired with RC re the pro's and cons of continuing or changing,& recv'd very helpful advice. I also discussed it with our vet at Jenkins' recent annual health check. It is rather a minefield, but eventually I decided to stick with it on the basis of - if it works - why change it!
My dog has been eating this food for 3 weeks now and for the moment no more itches or wounds. A bit pricey but the result looks to be impeccable. I'll wait and see what happens over time. I really recommend this kibble for dogs with problems. thank you zooplus
My poor dog has had problems on and off for quite some time now,he even got to the stage where on walks he just wanted to lay down (obviously in pain).I knew he had colitus but did'nt know how to help him,he had injection at the vets which helped for a few weeks,but within a couple of days of giving him the Hypoallergenic food he has improved 100% and I am so pleased,he is a much loved 11 year old cocker spaniel and I hope to have him a lot longer.The only down side for me was that I bought it from the vets which cost me £91 for 14 killo bag,I know where I will be getting it from if he has to be on it indefinately
Same as the ones at the vet but costs much less... good communication and good delivery... thantks, zooplus
My dog has had dermatitis for years and a few months ago I discovered this food. Since then he has felt much better, and doesn't scratch anymore. The red patches on his skin have also cleared up. I am delighted with this kibble!
As I have said before, very good kibble that I have the habit of buying now. The only negative point is that it is dear and I'm never entitled to a small gift like a toy, biscuits or other things that come with other dog food - pity!
My dog suffered from from Leonberg atopic dermatitis for almost 8 months. I changed his diet several times to no avail, then tried the vet's recommendation - Hypoallergenic RC. She usually has little appetite but now eats with pleasure, and it's a relief to no longer fight to make sure she eats something. It is now two weeks since she started eating this food, and itching has decreased.
my 9 year old rough collie has had bout after bout of collitis. At one point he collapsed BIG TIME I thought I had lost him. For eight years we have spent thousands trying to sought this out. It was a vet nurse who eventually did hit the spot I started him on this DR21 food 8 months ago and have had the best 8 mths with him. Wished I knew about this food before he would never have had the rotten 8 years he had. This food was like a magic wand I would never change him to anything else now It as certainly given Silver some quality to his life and hopefully he will never have to go back to those days of being so unwell he did,nt want to even get up to say nothing about those tablets he hated swallowing. I HAVE NO HESTITATION IN RECOMENTING THIS FOOD
Our 2 year old ESS "Lily" had a history of diahorrea/colitis, and eventually was referred to the Small Animal Hospital attached to Liverpool University in July of last year. Following blood tests, scans etc, they suggested she was intolerant of proteins and wasn't able to break them down. They gave us "Royal Canin Hypoallergenic DR21" and the results have been amazing! It's been 1 year since her diagnosis and she's gone from strength to strength. An added benefit is that it's a low residue diet, she absorbs most of the food, so her "output" is reduced. As long as your vet is happy to agree to your feeding this to your dog, I thoroughly recommend it! And she loves it to!
Our 2 yr old Golden Retriever/Labrador cross - rejected guide dog - Jenkins - came to us at 15 mths.He is now just 2 yrs old. His puppy walker gave us his early history of a serious bowel infection - eventually diagnosed as coccidia & campylobacter. His food was changed three times in order to stabilise his tummy - since when he has remained on this diet, & we have seen no reason to change it in the 10 mths since we've had him. The only treats he has are also hypoallergenic - James Wellbelove Crackerjacks which he loves.
My dog is allergic but to what was unknown, this food was recommended by a specialist vets to rule out diet as one of his allergens. This food is apparently proper goodness for dogs (one of the only full hyper allergenic foods) Max loves it! He even has this in his kong as a treat he can't get enough of it. His coat looks healthier too. Been feeding him this food and only this (no other treats whatsoever) for over eight weeks now, he has gone through three 14kg bags so far (large bread dog, eats more) Further tests found out Max is actually allergic to dust mites not anything in his diet... Despite this development I am still going to carry on with this brand. It's expensive food but its way cheaper on here than anywhere else, my pooch is worth it. Delivered straight to my door within days. Brilliant stuff :)
