    My puppy and vet both approve!

    By ELTU on May 5, 2021

    My puppy LOVES this food. She came home on puppy Iams but once she tasted this, she refused to eat Iams. My vet, who I trust whole-heartedly, also recommended this food. Would highly recommend.

    Way overpriced compared to their other foods

    By Maci on Oct 24, 2019

    My parents buy the breed specific Royal Canin food for their beagle and 85lb German shepherd, my sister buys it for her 60lb husky, I buy it for my 65lb golden retriever. So obviously, my new baby was going to get his breed specific Royal Canin food too. However, for the size of the bag and especially My parents buy the breed specific Royal Canin food for their beagle and 85lb German shepherd, my sister buys it for her 60lb husky, I buy it for my 65lb golden retriever. So obviously, my new baby was going to get his breed specific Royal Canin food too. However, for the size of the bag and especially the size of the dog it is extremely overpriced. I feed Benji 1 cup of food total a day. For dog food, there is roughly 4 cups per pound, so for this 2.5lb bag you get 10 cups which lasts Benji 10 days. I use autoship, so its about $18.80 for a bag. That’s roughly $7.5 per pound of food. I pay about $62 for Bonnie’s 30lb bag food, a little over $2 per pound, and it lasts her about 7 weeks as that’s when her autoship is scheduled. This got me thinking so I did some quick math, all based on chewy’s prices. The price is about the same for all of the breed specific food for large breeds - Adults: 30lb for $60-$65, ~$2.00/lb; Puppies: 30lbs $65-$70, ~2.25/lb For Dachshunds - Adults: 10lbs, $36-$39, ~$3.7/lb; Puppies: 2.5lbs, $18-$21, ~$7.5/lb So I decided to switch to Royal Canin’s generic puppy food, which is $36, 13lbs, ~$2.8/lb. This would last Benji about 52 days. 52 days worth of the breed specific would cost me about $95. That’s more than 2.5x the price of their generic. The adult breed specific food is more reasonably priced, though I say that loosely, so I’ll switch to it when he’s old enough. I figure this goes unnoticed because not many people have both large and small breeds in their homes. I ended up with both because I’m a college kid in apartment living and I wanted Bonnie to have a brother, but knew two big dogs would be difficult and a bit more expensive so in came Benji! All said and done, I love Royal Canin - Bonnie is a foodie and always went crazy for food, I used to feed her Victor grain-free and would switch up the recipes every month, which she loved, until the grain-free recall happened. Even though her food now is always the same, she still goes more nuts than she did with the new recipes of her old dog food. I remember the first month she would actually jump on me which she never did before. She still goes nuts for it, so does Benji - he doesn’t even chew! He has to use a slow feed bowl now, he’ll probably be mad at me for switching him from it. So I love Royal Canin products, I just don’t understand the price differences! Also had to attach pictures of my pups, they’re too cute of a pair! … more
