    Hi, I'm not familiar with the RC Veterinary brand of dog food. Is this Royal Canin? I know that Royal Canin is not considered the best food, it is rated a 3 Star food on the dog food ratings. My two were fed Royal Canin by the breeder I bought them from, but I knew by reading the labels and researching dog foods that it wasn't then best choice of food, not the worst either, but it contains a lot of fillers, and corn, which is not good for dogs. My vet also sells this brand in her office, but I learned while researching, that both medical doctors and vets don't get a lot of training in school on Nutrition. They mainly learn how to diagnose and treat diseases. My female Blossom is allergic to chicken, salmon, corn and grains, and we switched her food 4 times before we found a brand she tolerated. We feed both our guys Fromm's Beef Frittata, and they both do really well on it. Having said that every Bully is different and what brand works for one, doesn't always work for another, and some members use Royal Canin, and their dogs do well on it. My Blossom had warm red ears, a pink face, chin acne or rashes, he licked her paws a lot, and she pooped more. It's really trial and error to find a food that your bully tolerates.

    If you've tried other foods and he's not doing well on it, and you have him on RC Veterinary diet, and he does well on it and tolerates it, then you have to go with what works for your baby.

    Dogs thrive on animal meat and not as much plant matter. Their digestive system is designed to be more efficient at breaking down meat and is not as good at breaking down plants. So a dog can absorb more nutrients from a chunk of lamb than a mound of peas. A vegetarian diet, therefore, is not as good as an all-meat diet, unless the dog has a special medical condition that prevents him from eating meat. Vegetables also has carbs/sugar. Dogs are not as efficient at processing these and therefore, too much of it can hurt your dog.

    Is there a reason you are lowering protein? Protein is the main source of a dog's energy and cell-buildling. In kibbles, lower protein percentage means higher carbs percentage. Carbs are not written on the nutritional breakdown in the back of the kibbles bag but you can figure it out by using the formula Carbs = 100% - Protein% - Fat% - Moisture% - Ash% (if Ash is not supplied in the back of the bag, you can use an estimate of 8%). What we want for our dogs is low carbs - at least less than 50% and preferably less than 45% in kibbles. If you need to lower protein so your dog can drop some weight, then instead of finding a low protein/high carb food, lower the serving size instead.

    So, in conclusion, I would avoid any vegetarian formula unless my dog has a medical condition that prevents him from eating meat.

    I just visited RC's web page and took one look at one of their veterinary products and it made me sad....and a bit sick too.

    ...the only thing that you could give to your bully on it's own is coconut oil and fish oil. There is propably no meat what so ever in this product. I don't even call this food.

    How old is Major? If he's all grown up I would do the elimination diet with raw food.

    Banks has bad yeast too... she did good on beef Fritatta, not so good on others, but has been great on the Pork and Peas. Also, any change you make, be sure to wait at least a month for any real changes to happen -- good or bad. sometimes a negative will show up real quick, but the positive changes take a little long to show up
