    great for food allergies

    By MPON on Mar 31, 2021

    My Boston terrier started suffering food allergies at 6 months old (it took quite a while to figure out the issues he was having) finally the vet switched him to Royal Canin HP diet and it’s really improved the symptoms food allergies were causing and even has made his coat more shiney!

    WARNING to Pet Parents!!

    By CHFParent on Jun 19, 2020

    My dogs were put on this food due to one of them having severe food sensitivities and this was our last resort. While I asked if it was safe for my other dogs to be on it as well, I relied on my vet to know the answer to that question and did not research it myself. I ended up with TWO dogs in severe My dogs were put on this food due to one of them having severe food sensitivities and this was our last resort. While I asked if it was safe for my other dogs to be on it as well, I relied on my vet to know the answer to that question and did not research it myself. I ended up with TWO dogs in severe Heart Failure after a couple of years on this diet! I then learned from an expert Holistic Vet that this food was NEVER intended for long-term use. It is ONLY used in the short-term to determine a dog's food sensitivities. It simply does not have the adequate levels of nutrients required to maintain, repair & regenerate heart muscle! Basically, it is SOY PROTEIN and chicken fat. There are other ingredients listed but, according to Dr. Basko (a premier expert in holistic veterinary medicine) those nutrients are not in suffient amounts to support heart health long-term. I urge you, DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID. Figure out what your dog is reacting to and put them on a healthy custom diet. This food can in the short-term help you do that, but DON'T KEEP THEM ON IT. You may end up with dogs in heart (and renal) failure also! (ALSO FYI, Royal Canin is no longer using the original French formulations/recipes which made this an excellent brand. Now made in the U.S. the quality formerly associated with the name, is no longer applicable. Just like other commercial foods, standards are lowered for cost considerations. Due to non-disclosure by manufacturers, it is next to impossible to be sure they do not contain heavy metals (including arsenic) which is found in most commercial dog foods when independently tested.) … more
