Despite misinformation that Royal Canin contains fillers, animal protein is almost always the first ingredient in their foods, and when it is not, it is usually because the diet has been formulated for dogs with a particular health requirement, and not because of cost-cutting.
Royal Canin does a good amount of research and testing behind their products, adding to the reliability, quality assurance, and efficacy of their foods.
