    I am now starting to wonder if it is too high in protein, I was thinking of changing to James well beloved. I asked at the pet store where I now get my food (my old pet store stopped being able to get RC cavalier) as they sell both brands but the woman said better to stick to what their on (she feeds RC). I feel RC is a good food but JWB seems more natural,I often give them JWB meat pouches as a treat and they love it!

    Any advice /opinions. Going to the pet store later
    The best advice I have seen on dog food is a summary of internet advice put together in one place here: http://www.snoozer-dog-beds.com/Dog%...ndAnalysis.htm


    For what it's worth -one of the sources they use is a site called Dog Food Analysis http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/ and they recommend changing your pet's food about every 3 months: they claim it avoids food borne allergies (and I do know of people with allergies who follow the same regime -- not eating the same meat 3 times a day for example), provides greater variety in the diet (no one brand has it all), and makes for a less finicky eater.

    I had to search around a bit for this..I got it in a pet store fairly local to me.

    They stock it in Pet stop superstore..if you have one of those near you. Most large stores stock it. It is dry kibble.

    Seems to agree with them all. At the moment I have them on lamb and rice flavour as pippin is allergic to poultry especially chicken. They also do other flavours such as turkey,duck and ocean white fish might try that next.

    I won't be using RC cavalier until they have larger bags over here as it is now gone up in price to over 12 euro for a 1 and 1/2 kilo bag! too expensive when you have three dogs. I got a 15 kg bag of JWB for 58 euro!

    My vet also told me this -as you said it works for people so why not dogs too.

    Pippin has a severe allergy to anything chicken so I have to be careful what I feed him.

    I am so jealous of all of you who can get the RC CKCS where you live! So far it is not available in the states and contacting the company directly was just met with a standard response.

    Do any of you know if there is some (affordable) way to order it online and have it shipped?

    Or is it not even that big of a deal? Right now I feed RC for small dogs with sensitive stomaches to Franklin and RC puppy to Penny. I'm such a sucker for advertising though, its kind of pathetic
