I have to say that my puppy loves this food (although we use the Active variety) and looks and behaves beautifully on it. His stools are also perfect! I've been put off using it a couple of times and so tried Eden and Orjen both of which affected his digestion and temperament terribly! Sticking with it no matter what the reviews say now. Also my old lab was on another food, James Well Beloved Senior, which was supposedly non allergenic! But when I switched her to this brand's senior food her dry skin completely cleared up. I think you should just do what is right for your own dog. They will let you know what agrees with them and what doesn't. Make your own mind up!

Also recommended by our breeder and liked by puppy for a few months but then refused to eat it. Have tried several brands including Eden which was too rich and Canagan chicken which was rejected after a few weeks. Then switched to Canagan salmon and all seemd ok until a bad attack of gastro enteritis. Now about to switch to Burns pork and potato on advice from Vet.

Worth doing a bit of research into the incentives and discounts breeders get from Mars/RC, in return for their "recommendations"?

Giving boiled meat or chicken or fish along with dog food is not recommended... Give meat or fish as treat once or twice a week and keep your dog on dog food diet.. that would probably help you

Interested as to why RC is rated so low here, lower than Wainwrights. RC has been perfect so far for my dog (Dobermann puppy) and my breeder uses it for her dogs. All her dogs are very healthy and look beautiful.

Because of the unnatural ingredients, Canin's ingredient list is outdated, newer, better foods are constantly coming into the market. RC can't say what meat they've used specifically, and how much they use either, there are much better foods out there for the sky high price of this food, when you're just paying for dehydrated animal proteins and gluten.
