mydogs Try a food with limited ingredients. You don't need maximum growth formula either. I feed Fromm. A lot of people feed taste of wild pacific stream. Add coconut oil to diet

Ganzuelo I agree try switching to a different food. My lab would constantly scratch. We switched him to Blue Buffalo fish and potatoes and he doesn't scratch anymore.

When I sent him to the vet, the vet only gave us meds for the itch and anti biotics but no solution to the scratching. I put a protective on his neck to prevent him from scratching his wound but he still tries (although unsuccessfuly) to scratch his face.

1.) Is it possible that he is allergic to Royal Canin?

2.) what alternative dog food can i feed him to obtain maximum growth.

3.) Also, I was wondering to add hard boiled egg in his diet (only egg whites), how often should I feed him, if possible?
because when i switched from his first dog food to Royal Canin, he is not as hungry anymore, but then he started to skip meals altogether as if he doesn't like the taste of Royal Canin? or is he just full?

Thank you in advance! all suggestion will greatly be appreciated!

Don't go for food for "maximum growth" though. That's not what you want. Research good foods here on these forums.

SuperG ...whatever you change...only change one thing at a time...so you never have to guess at what might have made the difference.
