Finally a pet food we can all buy and that is well balanced. Many of the products that are good you cannot always buy online at PetSmart or even at Petco. PetSmart actually stocks the entire range of Royal Canin which makes buying it easier.
This products beats the Iams range as well as the pitiful Pedigree range of dog foods. Royal Canin starts off with a good solid protein source in the form of which is concentrated chicken. Next you have brown rice which adds fiber to the diet and not like many others who use rice flour or brewers rice in their products.
Chicken fat has also been added witch is a plus over beef tallow and this just adds value to the overall product. Then the addons get bad with the addition of corn gluten meal and a small amount of brewers yeast. They have used no by-products and they have used no fillers which makes this product stand head of shoulder over its competitors. For Omega 3 fatty acids they have used anchovy wich makes this an excellent product.
It has no by-products and fillers.makes up the bulk of the dog food and they have used very good grains in the diet. Overall a very good product.
NOTE: I have to take a bit of a dim view of this. I am told that they have now changed the ingredients from when this was written. The main ingredient is now brewers rice and chicken by-products. That makes this a poor product which I could not recommend. (Nov 2013)
