I asked a veterinarian online today what he thinks of the food, and he said he feeds it to his dogs, and that he doesn't pay much attention to hype about this ingredient or that ingredient - if a dog does well on the food, it's fine to feed it. He went on to say that Royal Canin is a perfectly fine food and the company maintains very excellent quality control. So, while I respect and sympathize with anyone who has had a negative experience, and, as with anything, it isn't for everyone. Let's not throw out the baby with the bath water. Royal Canin is the food of choice for my much-loved, very picky miniature schnauzer.

Royal Canin Boxer 26 vs Orijen Puppy - Dry Dog Food Comparison
We have a 4-year-old Border Collie that has been on Royal Canin since young, most recently on Satiety Sat 30, and has not had any problems with the food at all till now. The dog's coat, hair, skin and general health have been great and we could not have been any more happy with it, often receiving compliments from strangers on how beautiful our dog's coat is. However, all of this changed when we bought a new 12 kg bag of what we thought would be similar food from the same vet. When we opened the bag, we noticed that the size of the pellet is smaller than the old version, and the color is also different. Despite that, we didn't think there was anything amiss since it is still a RC product, so we fed it to our dog anyway.
