Royal Canin Veterinary Diet Weight Control Formula Large Breed Dry Dog 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 31 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 7 other sketchy ingredients, including Wheat Gluten and Dried Plain Beet Pulp.
