vs

Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Recovery RS Canned Dog & Cat Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 23 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has no antinutrients like peas, lentils, or potatoes (which is great, because these ingredients may interfere the absorption of vital nutrients), and it has 6 other sketchy ingredients, including Pork By-Products and Cassia Gum. Many consider this food to be inconvenient, because it requires clean-up.
