    Defaultdog food

    I read the earlier post about dog food. We feed Abby who is three royal canine for labs. But the third ingredient is corn gluten. So this is bad? She has been on it since 15 months.

    I feed my girls Pro Plan Chicken & Rice, there is corn gluten in the food but it is not one of the top three ingredients. I still say...feed a good quality food that agrees with your dog. Not every food will agree with your dog. What works for some may not work for others.

    I agree with Georgie as I said in the earlier post Cinnamon got yeast infections when on Nutro tons of other dogs here eat it and swear by it. It is good food it just didn't agree with her. Eagle Pack agreed with her and it improved Cierra quite a bit when they got her but she was still having some problems on it so off we went to Raw Instinct and both dogs do great on it. I know some people here with mutliple labs feed them different foods because what works for one doesn't work for the others.

    As long as she is fit and healthy, it is fine.

    "Bad" dog foods are brands like Ol' Roy, Pedigree, etc. Most if not all of the ingredients in these foods are very poor quality.

    Royal Canine is a fine food. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
