However, if stored in an appropriate, air-tight container, Royal Canin can last for up to two months. Royal Canin wet food should be refrigerated after opening and be consumed within two days.

Is Royal Canin Grain Free?

Royal Canin believes in achieving the best possible nutrition for pets. This means that Royal Canin pet food is not grain free.
