The doctor said he MUST be on the Royal Canin mature or the stones will come back. The doctor also say no other foods. I have doubts, I honestly believe that boiled fresh meat should be better than factory produced food. I also don't know what kind of dental product is good for my dog, is dental stix ok? The doc. recommends a product made from rawhide and it is ridiculously expensive and I heard rawhide is bad for dogs too. I also looked at this site www.dogfoodanalysis.com for Royal Canin mature and the site basically say it is trash.

It is long.

I found a link for Royal Canin dog food and it has yeast in it. My small dog got crystals in his urine and I have to made sure his food has no yeast in it so he will get crystals again. So I am wondering why your vet is pushing that brand on you. You should check the food list and see what is in and there any

For what it worth I my dog hate Royal Canin and my last dog would not eat it.
