Default Royal canin veterinary canned diet

My boy cookie he having diarrhea since last two weeks so I bought him to the vet then they gave him a shot and a 7 days antibiotic treatment. The vet also gave us some canned food which is royal canin veterinary diet to mix the pills together. I stopped the canned food and gave him back the dry kibbles but then the diarrhea just came back yesterday. I called the vet today and told him about that and he told me to stop giving him te kibbles and give him back the vet canned diet. The thing is I did some research on the royal canin and lot of people say they are a really bad dog food so I am wondering if I did right to stop giving Cookie the royal canin?

Chicken and white rice. That is the bland diet for dogs with gastro upset. My Bella was diabetic and would, on occassion, get a gastro flare up and chicken and rice were enough to give her energy while also allowing the intestines to heal.

You mean chicken and rice canned food. I am wondering why the vet gave us the canned food instead of the kibbles?

It's not a good food- but it DOES work for occasional medical treatment. My boy has had it before too, when he was very sick, and it did help a ton.

Ultimately the goal should be to steer away from it, but his gut may not be ready to yet.

How long a open canned food can last if putting into plastic container and store it in the refrigerators?

I would think about 3 days. Is there a reason you are wanting to get back on kibble so quickly?

Because I dont really like the brand royal canin as they use by product ingredents. Should I give him back the canned food or just stay with kibble is ok? Cookie is my first dog so I really have no idea how to dealing with it when he is sick right now.
