Pug Breeder Uses And Recommends…Will Continue

I recently purchased a pug puppy. The breeder advised me this is what she feeds her puppies, sent me a sample bag. I will continue to keep puppy on food until adulthood.

Great product

As with all Royal Canin product, great quality. Our Border Terrier puppy loves it and grows nicely and beautifully. She’s super energetic, got a shiny coat and digests perfectly. She prefers it when we put hot water on it and let it soak for a few minutes before serving. It combines the palatability of wet food with the convenience of dry food.

Love Royal Canin puppy food.

I love Royal Canin cause of the quality. Breeder recommended RC for my puppy and I was pleased cause I trust RC. I’ve used RC for my cats as well. My puppy loves to eat his kibble. They are small enough for his to grab. Would highly recommend RC brand.

Dogs loved it!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have two small inside dogs and they both loved this! It didn't have that "smell" that some dog foods have. It lasted a long time, so I know it was filling them up without being junky. I will definitely buy it in the future!

My puppy's eating

My puppy loves it always finishes it. If I try to put something else in the bowl she doesn't want to eat it

Not for my Dog

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I fed this to my small dog and she did not like it but she ate some after grazing for about an hour. That night she had terrible diarrhea and I chose not to give it to her again. I gave the rest to my neighbor and she had no issues with her dog.
Royal Canin response
I am very sorry to hear that. All products are formulated with different nutrient balances and when doing any diet change sensitive pets are subject to gastrointestinal upset. A diet transition can make this easier on their gastrointestinal system, thus we always recommend a slow transition.

puppy approved

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Our dog loves this food. He had no problem adjusting to it. It digests easily for him. The smell isn't pungent. We really have no complaints and would purchase it again. It's nice to know this is made specifically for his size.
