Title: I would like advise from veterinary diet
Post by: SammiBragg020991 on Nov 18, 2018, 09:40
Hiya! I am curious to know why royal canin have low scoring? What about specific? Hills?

I’m very surprised that royal canin have low scoring! I thought they meant to have everything in diet?

Thanks

Sammi

Hello and welcome to the forum. The reason for the lower scores is given on the individual product review. For instance, click on one of the Royal Canin products in the Dog Food Directory and you will see ingredients in red. They are hyperlinks so click on each one and you will see why the algorithm marks it down. Here is an example of one of the higher scoring products (2.7)  - Royal Canin Medium Starter. (https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/dog-food-reviews/0073/royal-canin-medium-starter)  It has five red ingredients with an explanation about why they are not desirable.

There is an explanation about prescription diets
here. (https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/articles/prescription-veterinary-diets.php) There is a thread about what to look for when selecting dog food here. (https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/forum/general-discussion/1/the-principles-of-selecting-a-suitable-food-for-your-dog/709/)
