What do you think about Royal Canin dry food?

I feed Gus Royal Canin because it is the best that I can get here!! It is not a great dog food but it is not one of the worst! Kinda middle of the road! I am slowly moving over to feeding Gus raw as I can't get Innova or Eagle pack here.
When I asked Mordy (the dog food guru) about it she said

royal canin is not a bad food. i used to feed it a long time ago and my great dane lived to 11 years old on it.

I used to feed my dogs royal canine, and if I decided to ever give up the raw diet I would certainly put my dogs back onto it.

After Harley had an operation to remove the stones from his bladder the vet reccommended that we put him on Royal Canin dry food (URINARY - Veterinarian Diet). He is on it now and is looking really well (his coat is looking healthier). He also gets 'All Natural' Chicken, rice and veg wet food.

I'm pretty sure we don't get Eagle Pack or Innova in Australia.

I have a 4 month old bernese mountain dog and I feed him with Royal Canin Giant Babydog. His other littermates are fed with Hills and I must say, my puppy is growing much better and has better coat.

So you can definately see a difference? I'm pretty sure Harley and Abby were on Hills dry food before their switch to Royal Canin.

The Royal Canin is a far superior choice to the Hills. Good choice

I'm really glad to hear that! I think I am starting to see a difference in my dogs as well. Their coats are looking really healthy.. though I do brush them every day.

Here, in Croatia, general belief is that Hills is the best food for dogs, even vets recomend it, I am glad you share my opinion that Royal is superior choice
