Royal Canin’s top seller for wet dog foods is a formula made specifically for Golden Retrievers. However, upon inspection, this product seems to fall flat. It has low amounts of protein and fats, that aren’t even competitive with industry averages. While different breeds of dogs may require different nutritional needs, the research on this is not thorough enough. Essentially they are using this recipe as more a marketing gimmick.
In the first 5 ingredients you have two types of by-products, which makes this product have a less than ideal source of protein and fats, made from the worst bits of chicken and pork. We suggest finding a better wet dog food for your Golden Retriever, and steering clever of the Royal Canin product. Most of the positive reviews from this product are in regard to taste/texture, which is not good enough in our opinion.
“My dog normally eats RCGR dry kibble. This was an easy transition and he likes it. Shipping was extremely fast.”
“My golden retriever loves the mixture with both dry and wet and I give it as a treat. He loves it!”
