My puppy wouldn't touch Royal Cannin so we had to switch her to Blue Buffalo. I might try the Chihuahua formula though down the road.....it looks rather good for them!

When I brought Mo home, his breeder said she had been feeding royal canin and gave me a bag. He wouldn't touch it..it was a pain for a bit to get him to eat. He does however like Orijen as well.

Something I would recomend for anyone who has one with a sensitive stomach, or hard to put weight on is Thehonestkitchen.com...It's AWESOME. It's freeze dried raw foods that comes in a powder and you just add water. All natural/organic. It is pricey, but my chui only eats a half a cup of it a day and a bag last's me well over a month and a half. It's well worth it.

I honestly don't have a problem with corn being in a food, just so long as it is not one of the *main* ingredients (serving as a cheap source of protein instead of using meat), and as long as my dogs have no known allergies to it. As long as it meets that criteria, then IMHO it is no better or worse than any other grain, and I see no reason to avoid it completely. I just do not want to feed any brand that uses it as a *filler* ingredient. But as far as corn vs. rice vs. barley or whatever, I think it just depends on which one works best for your dog(s). Likewise, grain free diets are not suited for every dog, either -- although I do personally like them for my dogs. Just my two cents, and only because I think corn tends to get a bit of a bad rap.

I have not looked at Royal Canine's ingredients recently, but I have always considered it more of a mid-grade food. Could be better, could be worse. But many dogs do seem to find it palatable.

Great stuff.

We feed ours RC Chihuahua and they just love it. Funny how it's now considered "mid-grade." Just last year it seems it was getting raves about how good it is!

I am sure it has to do with the dog food scares and everyone going Holistic and Natural these days. I liked RC when my guys were on it and never had any issues

If you are referring to my post, I was only stating my personal opinion of it...which doesn't necessarily mean anything to anyone but myself. FWIW, I have never given RC rave reviews.

I can't for the life of me find a good food for my dogs. I've been feeding them Advance from the vet but it has turkey meal in it.
