I'd chose Royal Canin over Pro Plan. Royal Canin does alot of research (not animal research in a bad way, but research that helps them figure out what each dog needs/likes/etc, which I think probably makes for better dog food than a company that doesn't do all of that extra stuff.) I forget what the actual percentage is (it's been awhile since I met with the RC rep, but it's more than any other dog food company. I like the idea of the breed specific dog foods. The guy said that they don't have as many in the US (though they do have some), because they've found that it's hard to convince the American population that some breeds have specific nutritional needs and get them to buy breed specific foods. Especially when we have foods that are as inexpensive as Ol' Roy. I wish RC would make more breed specific formulas available to the US (I'd definitely be interested in trying out a corgi formula), but I do understand.
