Ingredient Questions

I'm thinking about switching my 6 month old golden to this brand of dog food. But after reviewing the ingredients I'm a little hesitant. I also read one of your responses to a review left about not using any additives. However; one of the ingredients is sodium silico aluminate, and another one listed is fructooligosaccharides. When I googled sodium silico aluminate, the first sentence on several websites calls this an additive, and fructooligosaccharides is a sugar substitute. Is there a place on your website that lists the ingredients along with their purpose for use?

Good food, not sure on the instructions

Instructions say that for a dog 66lbs+, I should feed him once a day but add water to the food? My dog likes the dry dog food.
Royal Canin response
We recommend feeding twice a day and have fresh water available.

The Best of the BEST!

Our 2 year old golden has never been the biggest eater. He's very picky and rarely got excited to eat any kibbles despite transitioning to him to different brands and flavors. He has also had skin allergies and itching issues for the past year requiring different antibiotics and anti-itch medications and shampoos. We were ready to start him on daily allergy medication until we started feeding him Royal Canin. He LOVES this food and can't wait to be fed. We have also noticed a huge decrease in his itching and no more bumps on his skin. So happy to have found this food for our sweet golden.
Royal Canin response
Wonderful to hear how well he is doing!

I now have a happy dog

I honestly purchased this because I had a great coupon-I can't believe the difference in my girl. She loves the food. Her stool is excellent and she's more regular. She has been on it over 6 months and now I see a change in her coat. Its shiny and she seems to be shedding less. BTW my vet is very pleased about this. You need to know I used a good name brand food before so I'm not afraid to pay for a good product-this one is definitely worth the price!

Only food our dog will eat and enjoy

We have used for over a year for our Goldendoodle. Wish there was food for this breed but this has been a great food for our puppy. We even switched our Cockapoo over to this brand.

Gracie Loves the Taste

I recently changed our Golden's kibble to RCGR after learning more about heart disease in Goldens.

Improved Stools

I fed Eukanuba Large Breed for my Golden. His stools would be covered in Mucous. I switched over to Royal Canin Golden Retriever and this problem has disappeared. He is at a good weight and his coat is fantastic.
