Formulated with high quality protein (L.I.P.*) and prebiotics to support digestive health and a balanced intestinal flora, contributing to optimal stool quality.                               *Protein selected for its very high digestibility.

Great Puppy Food

When we bought our Shih Tzu puppy, our breeder gave us a bag of Royal Canin puppy food that she feeds the dogs. Our puppy loves this food; and our vet raved about how healthy she is.

Perfect bite size for my Shih Tzu although I wish there was a smaller bag size.

AKC Breeder Approved! Less really is more!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I began feeding the Royal Canin Shih Tzu puppy food to my nursing mothers and their puppies about a year ago. The small sized kibble was easy for the puppies to consume and softened quickly when water was added. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most was that I could feed my adult dogs and the puppies less quantity to maintain the desired weight and condition (i.e. I could feed 3/4 of a cup of this food when I would have to feed 1 cup of a different brand to achieve the same results). This communicates to me that the food has a higher nutrient density in a form that is highly digestible to my mothers and puppies. The frequency and size of stool is smaller (less waste- another sign of highly digestible content) and my dogs are beautiful and healthy. While I initially tried this brand of food because of a promotion, I continue to feed it because the results are tangible.

Who knew

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When we picked up our puppy we asked what food she had been eating and they told us Royal Canin Shih Tzu puppy. I had no idea this product was available. The breeder said great food and no diarrhea! I have given this to her ever since. She is on her last bag of puppy food and I just purchased a large bag of big girl shih tuz for her. She is growing strong and healthy. Thank you for taking care of my Tootsie Lori Fuller

Perfect size!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My dog is super picky. I bought probably 10 different types before finding this. He loves it! He is now 10 years old and doesn't have alot of teeth so I went back to the puppy formula cause its smaller in size. Will probably go to canned soon. Great product!
