Royal Canin MINI Babydog 30 Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.

Royal Canin MINI Babydog 30 Dog Food First Five Ingredients:

  1. Chicken Meal
  2. Rice
  3. Brown Rice
  4. Chicken Fat
  5. Corn Gluten Meal

Chicken Meal is the first ingredient and is a named meat ingredient. A dog’s diet needs to based on the fact that dogs need meat and protein that derives from meat
Rice makes up the second and third ingredients. Rice is a decent quality ingredient and adds additional proteins and carbohydrates to the recipe.
Chicken Fat is going to be the main source of fat. It’s safe to say that the ingredients before this ingredient are going to make up the majority of the dog food. This is a decent quality ingredient. You want to stay away from unidentified fat sources such as, “Animal Fat”

Corn Gluten Meal is the fifth ingredient. Corn provides your dogs with no nutritional value. Dog’s digestive systems have a hard time digesting this ingredient. If you feed your dog a corn kernel, you will get a corn kernel out. Corn in excess has also been linked to many cases of dog allergies.

    This food contains two animal protein sources and one of them is “dried egg product.” However, it also contains 4 common allergens: corn, gluten, beet pulp, and yeast. Combine that with the exorbitant price of this food, and I would NOT recommend it. There are much better options out there for that price, you might as well spend it on the good stuff rather than the marketing gimmicks.
