Question Royal Canain?

Hi Everyone

I feed my 12 week old puppy Royal Canin Mini Junior, this is what he was weaned onto and he loves it.

He is very healthy and i have (up to now) had no problems with this food, his stools are fine also.

The breeder feeds all there chihuahuas Royal Canin, they are all lovely healthy chi's and all have lovely soft shiny coats. (they have had and bred chi's for over 15 years).

I read on the forums that Royal Canin is a bad food.

Why is this and does anyone else feed the chi's royal canin with no problems?

Im confused by the mixed reviews

Thanks

Royal Canin is NOT a 'bad' food, there are just some foods that 'rate' higher. Some of those are freeze dried 'raw' diets, and others. I got the Whole Dog Journal list of top dog foods. I change brands every other bag, so the dogs have another 'taste'. I also give them a few table scraps on top of the kibble most days. sue

Here are a couple of reviews from 2 really good review sites. If you are feeding the Chihuahua specific version, these sites give just 2-3 star ratings. There are other kibbles that are higher rated (5-6 star depending on the site) for their nutritional content. Acana, Fromm, Orijen as examples.
Hope reading these reviews and other's comments below the reviews will help!

Daisy was put onto Royal Canin after she finished feeding from her mum, so that's what I feed her on still. She seems healthy, and she likes it so I won't be changing her yet.
She's on the same food as yours, the mini junior one.

Thanks for the replies!!

I think i will stick with it, my puppy loves royal canin and i dont want to switch to something else that he wont eat. im glad other people think it is a good food.

How many times a day do you feed your pups? Mine is 12 weeks old and i have been feeding him 3 times a day, but lately he isnt interested in his afternoon meal,

Should i feed him twice daily and give him more or do i need to wait till he is a bit older?

Also how much do you feed them? if you used say a tablespoon as a measurement for each meal how many tablespoons of food would you give them at each meal?

Sorry if thats confusing im just finding it hard to know whether he's having too much or to less food.

Thanks

I feed mine a mixture of orijen and royal canin
Its not bad, but it does have some controversial fillers
My chis love the taste of RC and aren't a big fan of orijen, thats why I mix them
