    Default Royal Canin cavalier food?

    Someone just mentioned that Petstop in Blanchardstown is carrying a new cavalier food by Royal Canin (in their breed line). He says they told him it was just launched last week and they only had small bags at the moment.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    Ok I have found it on some retail websites but not on the RC UK website!

    http://www.royalcanin.co.uk/your_dog/pure_breed.aspx



    They list it on their French home site though:

    I can't find it in anything but the small size on retail sites.

    Hey Karlin, that is great!!

    Do you have any word on exactly what makes it "cavalier food?" Special vitamin formulation, fat content, protein percent, etc?

    From what I have heard and read, RC is a GREAT food! I'd be interested in learning more about it

    Yep! I picked up a small bag at Newlands Garden Center, which has a nicly stocked pet section. Hadn't seen it before and fed it to mine mixed with their usual. They've had it a few days now and I have to say they love it, it's small kibble and short of tasting it myself it looks moist and meaty.

    Max is a fussy, slow eater gobbled it up and even when some spilled on the floor he hoovered it up very quickly.

    The small bag 1.5 KG was a little bit expensive tho at 11.99Euro but there was a promotion of Buy One Get One Free.

    It says that it has reinforced cardiac function to help maintain healty cardiac funtion due to appropriate content in terms of magnesium, sodium, potassium, arginine, EPA & DHA, taurine, L_Carnitine and antiodixdants, Vit E & C, green tea and grape polyphenols. (LIP protein selected for its very high assimilation).
    And the shape of the kibble is specially for the brachycephalic jaw - (Just reading the front of bag)

    I'm happy with it and will buy it in a large bag for economy's sake.

    and short of tasting it myself
    oh go on!

    Thanks for that info -- sounds very good! I am wondering if they are trialing it first in small bags to see if there's a response. The large bags are far more economical so I hope they will do it.

    Hi Karlin

    I got some of this 10 days ago from a pet store in Newry and Rosie loves it.

    It's £7.99 for 1.5kg (the only size they do at the moment) but it was bogof and that offer is on until the end of the month - going back later on this week to get some more.

    If anyone wants me to get some for them, let me know.

    We went looking for this last weekend, and couldn't find it in our area. I remember when we first brought home India and then Geordie, our breeder was feeding them RC Adult 27.

    Popped into my local pet store. Just a tiny little privately owned pet shop and she did not have it in stock but was able to order it for me and as many as I wanted!
    I was shocked and my dogs LOVE it
    Owned by Tilly (blen), Jody (b/t), Pebbles (b/t), Libby (ruby) and Freddie (b/t) .... Love em! x

    i'm not a nutritionist or any kind of expert but i feel a bit negative about breed specific food, eukanuba also do a cavalier and other breed specific food.
    At the end of the day most dogs will eat whatever is in front of them and they are not going to be that impressed at food shaped for their brachycephalic jaw or what quality it will make their stools!

    i just suspect that there maybe little difference between the foods nutritionally and its all a bit of a marketing ploy where the company get to charge you more money.

    The prices are pretty much the same for breed specific to regular foods in RC's lines. I like the heart-focused additions on the CKCS food. Of course many people add things like fish oils, chondroitin etc anyway. The protein level is lower on the CKCS food as well. As I feed RC much of the time anyway I'd be happy to use a breed specific food.
