never heard of but it's a royal canin page - i've never heard anyone rave about them (but i've never heard anyone complain either). ingredients sound okay though
i'm sure i've asked, but i forget - do they get filtered or bottled water? logan's eyes cleared up after we switched him to better water.[/b]
Dh always asked me why do I give the dogs the peasant water... I'll give it a try.
Royal Canin is not the best brand, but definitely not the worst.. With that said, I think the ingredients list looks pretty good..
The one concern that jumps out at me is the brewer's yeast. I believe that it's another possible allergy trigger. I can't remember all the details (my brain is a little fuzzy this a.m.) but I can dig up some more info it you're interested.
I went and reviewed the info I had about brewer's yeast and it looks like it's another one on the list of common allergens (along with corn, wheat, chicken, lamb, beef, fish, milk, pork, eggs). It most commonly triggers intense itching. It's often recommended as a natural deterent of fleas so I think that's why it's in a lot of foods. The more common it is the more likely it is to be an allergy trigger.
If you'll be eliminating corn and wheat by going with the new food, I think that's a good start. Hopefully, that will be enough to help with her watery eyes. Unfortunately, if a dog has allergies that are triggered by something it's possible that after enough exposure another ingredient in the food will also trigger allergic reactions. Just something for everyone to keep in mind - just because your dog does well on a certain food for a while doesn't mean that he will do well on it forever.
