Has anyone had problems with skin allergies in dogs since they changed the fromula?

My yorkie and shitzu where both on Royal canin special 30 for years. Since the formual changed both of my dogs have what appears to be skin pimples all over there backs. I have brought them to the vet, and He thinks could be new diet. I hate to switch unless positive it is the food. Has anyone else noticed this condition? Please, I am at the end of my rope.

You should try Innova brand products. My 14 year old Springer Spaniel had terrible allergies. This product solved the problem! Another product is California Natural.....but Petco does not carry it.

Royal Canin used to be a good food, but in the past 10 years the pet food industry has made remarkable improvements and higher quality diets are widely available now making Royal Canin more or less a "middle of the road" food now. I think your vet is on the right track with suggesting a new diet. Try a limited ingredient diet that is also grain free like Wellness Simple Solutions or Blue Buffalo Basics. There are other brands out there that are good as well like Canidae, Evo, etc, but check to see that the ingredient list is short and that the protein sources are all from one animal (ie: all chicken, not chicken + fish + duck, etc). The less ingredients, the less chance of your dogs having a reaction. And remember to switch over to the new diet slowly! Phase out the old one while increasing the new one till they are completely switched.

depends on weight of your dog. My overweight dachshund and my 3lb chihuahua share a small bag and it will last about 3 weeks. So if your dog eats about 1.5 cups a day you will get anywhere from 2-4 weeks from one bag. Hope That helped!
