Royal Canin Middlesbrough

Don’t Buy Royal Canin. Read This Before Making A Mistake.

Has your vet recommended Royal Canin? Maybe you simply want to provide ‘’the best’’ out there?

Royal Canin is often recommended by vets who know very little about nutrition and is ‘’used’’ to treat intolerances, allergies, irritation, bladder stones…etc.

But, in actual fact, this very food will end up costing you much more on vet visits.

This Is Why: The food is simply junk. Read these ingredients carefully. 

You should ALWAYS read the ingredients list. Manufacturers cannot lie on the ingredients table (although they try to hide them). 

The sad truth is that if you are trying to eliminate a food intolerance (i.e chicken, beef...). You won't be able to. Royal Canin uses ''poultry protein'' and ''animal fats''. So any chance of the food being the solution to a specific protein intolerance is out the window. Their wet food (pouches, cans) are of the same poor quality. 

Some other reasons this food will make things worse are:

- Your dog lacks salivary amylase, which breaks down starches. This means they will have a very tough time digesting the high amount of carbs this food has. 

- Dogs make their own blood sugar through a process called gluconeogenesis. They DO NOT need carbs.

Furthermore, they have 8 hormones to raise sugar levels and only one to bring them down. Overloading their bodies with carbs leads to skin allergies, teeth & breath problems, IBD, IBS, pancreatitis, obesity...

- Dogs are meat, organ and bone eaters. They have sharp K-9s and carnassial teeth to crush bone. Any food they are given needs to be rich in good quality meat. Feeding that many carbs to a carnivore will ensure continual vet visits. 

We could be naming reasons why this food is likely to make things worse all day, but, at the end of the day, you have to realise that certain brands and professions are in just for your money, and not to protect your dog. 

We could make more money if we sold this, but that would not help who really matters: your dog or cat. 

There are healthier, cheaper and better alternatives. 

For example, a list of ingredients of a food we stock:

Fresh Chicken Meat (11%), Fresh Turkey Meat (7%), Fresh Whole Eggs (6%), Fresh Whole Herring (6%), Fresh Chicken Liver (5%), Fresh Whole Flounder (5%), Fresh Turkey Liver (5%), Fresh Chicken Heart (4%), Fresh Turkey Heart (4%), Fresh Chicken Necks (4%), Chicken Liver (Freeze-Dried), Turkey Liver (Freeze-Dried), Fresh Whole Pumpkin, Fresh Whole Butternut Squash, Fresh Whole Zucchini, Fresh Whole Parsnips, Fresh Carrots...
