Our expert says:
Royal Canin has a number of diets formulated for specific breeds as you know. The proportions of ingredients probably differ with additional ingredients being added for specific breeds. Carbohydrates are added to some diets to increase the amount of food the dog will eat. The premium brand foods have little "padding" and that is why they are more nutritious and less is needed to provide the dogs requirements. Some dogs do not take kindly to changes in diet as regular changes can cause an upset in digestion. If you can feed them a premium well formulated veterinary diet it will be to their advantage. I am however aware of the concerns of many with regards to using some of these foods at present.
