Question my dog Kashi is 21.5 pounds. VET said he needs to go to adult dog food. Royal Canin is what they recommended VET controlled. Royal Canin had corn in it is that not bad for Havanese? Please advise.
Royal Canin is far from the worst food out there, but it's far from the best too. Corn, (and other grains) in and of themselves are not bad, as long as you don't have a dog that is allergic to them, AND they are not one of the primary ingredients in the food. You want to see some sort of meat (or poultry or fish) in at least the first couple of spots on the ingredient label.
I choose to avoid both corn and wheat in Kodi's food, just because they ARE grains that are likely to cause allergies, although Kodi is not allergic to them now.
As Tracy said, many people on the forum are passionate about what they choose to feed their dogs, and there are almost as many good solutions as there are dogs! Kodi grew up on Royal Canin Mini Puppy, and he always looked and felt good. It certainly never stunted his growth!!!
as he reached adulthood, and I did more reseach into foods, I chose to switch him to Natural Balnce Organic. I feed my family organic, and wanted to avoid toxins in my dog's food as well. I supplement this with lean meat, eggs and cooked veggies... Whatever we happen to be eating. (though not at the table, for the sake of manners! His food goes in his dish!!!)
