Question Food choices in Australia

I would love some advice please....I am so confused about what to feed Molly. She is 8 months old and has been on Royal Canin (breeder and here), I have just recently swapped her to Advance which is an Aussie made supposedly premium food. But just checked out the ingredients and it doesn't seem much different to RC I know from reading that RC is rubbish but we are limited to what we can buy here. A lot of brands that I see recommended here are not available such as Orijen which has been withdrawn from the market here. Something to do with our quarantine laws that the irradiation treatment was causing cats to die. We are the only country that this applies to. So after much internet searching it seems I can order Artemis (Fresh mix medium and large breed puppy) or Eagle Pack large/giant breed. Other than those options it is RC, Advance, Iams or Eukanuba. I pay about $120 for both RC and Advance and it seems would cost about $20 more to get it shipped interstate. I should say that her coat is lovely and shiny and she has no health concerns (touch wood) but I just want the best for her Any help would be appreciated and I apologise for how long this is.

Hello Bianca!

I would go with Artemis.

IMO it has better ingredients.

I bet it's frustrating but Artemis looks good to me.

I hope little Molly Moo enjoys it
