Royal Canin Canine Satiety Support is a low calorie food that keeps dogs feeling full for longer.
How it works
Developed by Royal Canin's team of vets and nutritionists, this dog food is specially formulated for pets who need to lose weight. The food is high in fibre to keep your dog feeling satisfied and full for a longer time after eating. This reduces the chance of them overeating and therefore putting on weight. The food also contains ingredients that can help maintain joint and bone health as, due to their size, overweight dogs are more likely to develop problems in these areas.
The calorie content is low, so your dog should lose weight even if they aren't exercising often. To combat the low calorie content the food is enriched with extra vitamins and minerals so that your dog will have all the nutrition they need to be healthy, active and happy. Finally, the recipe is high in protein: this helps satisfy hunger and also helps your dog to keep their lean muscle during the weight-loss regime.
- low calorie content encourages weight loss
- high fibre content keeps hunger at bay
- high protein content maintains lean muscle mass
- added ingredients protect joint and bone health
- enriched with vitamins and minerals
- nutritionally complete and intended to be your dog's only food source.
When to use it
Obesity in dogs can lead to other health problems including diabetes, joint and bone pain and a shorter lifespan. Your vet can do a proper analysis and tell you if your dog is overweight, but a quick test you can do at home is looking at them from above: they should have a clearly defined waist. Their ribs generally should not be visible (that's often a sign of them being underweight) but you should normally be able to feel them when you stroke your dog's sides gently. If you can't, it could be a sign that your pet needs to go on a diet.
While the most common causes of weight gain is eating too much and exercising too little, it can also be a side-effect of more serious problems such as Cushing's disease, pancreatic cancer and hyperthyroidism. It's important to visit your vet to rule these out.
In addition to putting them on a stricter diet, you can also help your dog to lose weight by encouraging them to exercise more: for example, by taking a ball out on walks and getting them to run after it.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Royal Canin Canine Satiety Support to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.

Great for weight lossI’ve had great success with my dog, who easily puts on weight, getting back to where she should be. However she has recently had surgery to remove struvite stones and we’ve been advised to feed her an appropriate food to control the issue. Therefore I’m left with two thirds of a bag that I can’t use!
I bought the wrong one :/Need to read the instructions more thoroughly! In my rush to change my dogs food and get her weight control started, I bought the general pack instead of the small dog version! Shall be re-ordering the correct pack over the weekend.
Less effective nowThe product has recently undergone a change in shape - previous disc-like biscuits have been replaced with star-shaped biscuits which are much much harder and more difficult for our dog to eat. Additionally we have noticed that, instead of filling him up which is the reason we were referred to this product by our vet, our dog is again constantly asking for food. We are now urgently looking into an alternative.
Canon dietary dog foodRecommended by vets as I have a typical lab who loves food and to find it everywhere we go so weight became something to watch, he is now 10 and still loves his dietary food and maintains a great weight
