I have a 7 month old chihuahua LC. Since we brought him home we have always had him on Royal Canin XS Junior as this was what the breeder had started his litter on and recommended.
I also brought up his food with my vet and she was happy with this too!
Benny is a blue tri LC chihuahua and I had read previously on forums that when their adult coat develops they can tend to have problems with dry skin!
Recently we had a few issues with him refusing to eat his kibble (now solved) however post that
he has been scratching ALOT lately, regardless of the fact that he was up to date with his frontline spot on and worming. (A visit to the nurse at the vets confirmed it was not fleas and she suggested adding vitamin E capsules to his food available from all good pet shops)
So into my pet shop I went and asked the kind lady for vitamin e, she asked me what food Benny was on and I explained Royal Canin . She continued to tell me that it's basically rubbish and filled with fillers! And suggested I try Symply instead.
I haven't heard of this make before has anyone else? Could anyone recommend any other good dog foods for dry coat problems?
I'm in two minds because royal canin seemed to be supported by both my vet and the breeder (who is KC accredited)? But when comparing the ingredients I was a little alarmed at what royal canin consisted of?
