If you have any Royal Canin Food that is on the recall list, Royal Canin has transition diet recommendations that you can switch to.

I know that Medi-Cal is not the best food but ....

Canine Skin Support (SS)
Canine Sensitivity RC (rice and catfish)
Switch to:
Medi-Cal Hypoallergenic Formula
Medi-Cal Vegetarian Formula
Royal Canin Hypoallergenic HP

Canine Early Cardiac EC
Switch to:
Medi-Cal Weight Control / Mature

Feline Sensitivity RD (rice and duck)
Feline HypoAllergenic HP
Switch to:
Medi-Cal Hypoallergenic/Gastro

Isn't medical owned by thesame company and RC, or is that technical. If so would there be any point changing if they may well end up recalling the other brand anyways.:confused:

I believe that Medi-Cal is owned by Royal Canin.
Pretty scary

This transition diet recommendation was faxed to the vet clinic where I work, so I thought I'd post it as I know alot of people buy Medi-Cal.

Yes, Medi-Cal and Techni-Cal are both made by Royal Canin Canada. :yuck:

Instead of telling people to transition to the other Medi-Cal formulas the vet should be telling people to feed quality premium/holistic brands like Orijen, Innova, Canidae, etc.

...and why don't they just sell the good stuff anyways :confused: . It doesn't make much sense.

They don't sell it because Royal Canin goes to the vet schools to give a one day nutrition course to the vets and brainwashes them into selling their food when they open their vet clinics. :sad:

Some vets (like mine) also sell some premium/holistic brands as well as the Medi-Cal because of customer demand. :thumbs up But, they still promote the Medi-Cal. :yell: :frustrated: :sad:

Well, it's easy to get people to switch to another food "made" for the same purpose, right?

I have to say though, they're the only ones who cared enough to offer suggestions. How many cat owners are still panicking trying to find cuts and gravy food that hasn't been recalled?

But they probably only offered suggestions because they own both companies :D .

Not that I would ever doubt the intentions of a pet food company :rolleyes: :D .

Yeah, for sure, but menufoods owns the world (or at least makes the world) and they didn't suggest anything. :rolleyes:

That's cause if they recommend one product they would irritate all the other companies they manufacture for.
