Default Royal Canin Starter

Hello guys, I have a few questions please.

My 8 weeks old Magnum is on RC starter which contains baby milk, the thing is the bag is still nearly full so is it fine if he stays on it when he is over 2 months until its finished.

Also concerning the RC starter it says on the bag that Magnum should eat around 320 and he is just eating above 260 right now is it fine ? do i need to encourage him to finish his plate?

When choosing the next kibble bag I have to opt either for RC Maxi junior or Eukanuba which one of the two is the best ?


Many thanks.

Don't worry if he doesn't eat the full amount that is stated on the bag, that is really only a guideline, some pups need more others less. For the food, it will be easier if you stay within the same brand, so if you are pleased with RC, then go on the RC Max Junior. If you do switch brands, then do it very slowly over 3 weeks, gradually increasing the ratio of old food to new food.

I really think for the money you could find a much better puppy food.

I agree. Eukanuba seems to be high in price for quality of food IMO.

I used RC Maxi Starter with my last litter then switched to RC Maxi Puppy at 8 weeks. I was very pleased with the steady growth and health of the litter. Never any stool issues. RC gets a bad rap from many who only judge a kibble by reading the label. Every ingredient in The RC Maxi line is there for a specific reason, based on scientific research and what is needed during the various growth stages.

Thank you. I am worried about his weight as I want him to become a big boy when older that is why i kind of encourage him to eat but just during his usual times.

Between the two you listed, I'd go with ROyal Canin.
