Junior Dog Food

Gill Sharples

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Dorset, United Kingdom

I am using Royal Canin Veterinary Diets Gastro-Intestinal Junior Dog Food, my dogs are coming upto 1 year old in January and both still have delicate guts, - I have used this food since September as recommended by the vet. Should I change once they are a year old or stick to the junior version? If I change what is the best food.

  • Non-Executive Director

The standard Royal Canin Gastro-Intestinal food should be ideal, so I would suggest that but you should check with your vet if you are at all unsure.
