This formula helps maintain the Dachshund’s muscle tone with an appropriate protein content. Contains L-carnitine.

This formula helps reduce fecal smell and volume, and helps support good digestion with highly digestible proteins (L.I.P.*), an appropriate fiber content and high quality carbohydrate sources.                                                                         *Protein selected for its very high digestibility.

100% Complete and Balanced Nutrition

Royal Canin Dachshund For Life!

We have been feeding our miniature dachshund Royal Canin from the start. He loves it, and everyone we meet comments on his beautiful coat. He has no tear stain, unless he’s been out on the dusty road. When I researched foods for our newest little one, I wanted something that would care for his bones and joints. He’s a happy little fellow, who snarfs up his kibble like a little vacuum. He loves it!

I have very healthy dogs!!!

Before switching to Royal Canin, my dachshunds didn't have the cleanest teeth or best breath. We also had one dog that had back issues. Since switching, I feel it helped with his back issues. I switched over 10 years ago and have always used Royal Canin. Since the switch, I've luckily never had any dogs with dental or digestive issues. I feel is attributed to their diet with Royal Canin being at the core. I highly recommend this food.

Great as a puppy and as an adult!

We changed our dachshund over to Royal Canin puppy when we brought him home. Now he is old enough for the adult formula. It's been great for him. We tried the Royal Canin small breed formula when we couldn't find the Dachshund blend and he had constipation. Found the adult dachshund formula and all is good again! Please don't stop making this formula!

No re-sealable bags

I am a huge fan of your dog food and buy 3 seperate bags every month. I buy the 3kg Digestive, the 15kg Maxi and the 7kg Royal Canin Dachshund food. But what frustrates me, is the fact that the dachshund bags no longer seal after opened. Why??????

Pretty darn good

I have had 3 or my 4 dachshunds on Royal Canin since puppyhood. They do love it so when the pups are happy I'm happy.

Only food you should consider

My babies Milo and Violet have been on this food since I got them at 4 months ago. They are piebald mini siblings. They just turned one year old and everytime I take them to the vet or to daycare, I get so many compliments and questions because they are so healthy and their ears are clean and backs are straight and they have such a shiny coat. Never will I ever consider feeding them anything else!
