How Does Royal Canin Skin Support Work?

Royal Canin Skin Support is made with limited ingredients, so it is easier for you and your vet to keep track of what is going into your dog's body. Reducing the number of ingredients also reduces the chances of your dog having an allergic reaction to the food. It has a Royal Canin exclusive formula that has Vitamin C and taurine that help skin generation in puppies and full-grown dogs. It also contains Vitamin B-complex and amino acids that fortify the skin barrier, and both DHA and EPA ensure shiny skin and a glossy coat.

What Is the Best Dog Food for a Dog With Skin Allergies?

If your dog has allergies, then your first course of action would be to pinpoint what is causing the allergy. If the cause of the allergy is a specific ingredient or food, then your vet will advise you to choose food that doesn't contain your dog's allergen. If your dog has allergies whose origin cannot be traced, then Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Skin Support Dry dog food is one of the best canine skin support dog foods on the market. It is made with extra omega 3 fatty acids that nourish and strengthen your dog's skin barrier, fortifying it against skin allergies.

Do Vets Recommend Royal Canin?

Royal Canin Skin Support dry dog food is part of the Veterinary Diet range from Royal Canin. This means that this product has been formulated to meet stringent veterinary standards that provide targeted nutrition in line with standard treatment plans that your vet uses. You can buy this dog only if your vet prescribes it, so vets definitely recommend this dog food.

What Is the Best Dog Food for Skin and Coat?

The best dog food for skin and coat is one on which your dog thrives. Each dog is unique, and dog food that suits one may not suit another. In general, a dog's skin and coat can be nourished by adding fish oil as it contains fatty acids that fortify the skin and coat. However, that isn't the only ingredient that can do this. Thus, it is best to stick to expert formulations from reputed companies like Royal Canin that have spent decades developing recipes with their research and development teams.

Why Do Vets Recommend Royal Canin?

Vets recommend Royal Canin for several reasons. Firstly, they have been a leading manufacturer in the dog food industry for decades and have built an excellent reputation among both vets and dog owners. Secondly, all their food is manufactured to meet AAFCO standards, so you are assured of a good product. And finally, Royal Canin regularly tests their products and issues recall for your dog's safety whenever needed. This transparency is extremely important as it could save your dog's life.

Is Royal Canin Dog Food Worth the Money?

Royal Canin is made of extremely high-quality ingredients. Their dog food and cat food is seen as a premium product. However, you are getting precisely what you pay for with this product. They often use patented technology to target specific issues like their canine Skin Support dry dog food or their feline Calm cat food. Thus, while it can be more expensive than other brands, you are getting better value for your money than elsewhere.

What Is the Most Common Allergy in Dogs?

Dogs often develop allergies to food that they are repeatedly exposed to. Thus, the most common allergies are cow meat, dairy, wheat or gluten, chicken and eggs, and finally, lamb and fish.

What Can I Add to My Dog's Food to Help With Itching?

You should speak to your vet about different supportive therapies you can give your dog to help ease the itching. They may recommend supplements like fish oil or medicine like lotions to treat the affected area. Depending on the severity of the itching, your vet may also recommend steroid sprays like hydrochloride that can soothe the rashy areas on your dog's body, making them scratch less.

How Do You Feed an Adult Canine Royal Canin?

You should first introduce Adult Canine Royal Canin to your dog as 25% of a meal, and wait till your dog adjusts to it before increasing this proportion to 50%, 75%, and then 100%. Wait for a few days between each increase to reduce the chances of tummy upsets. If your dog is a picky eater, you can first introduce this dog food as treats and then move on to substitute their regular food.
