My girl likes it!

I feed this dry food at will with supplemental morning and evening small amount of canned food. She seems to be thriving on it.

The only food for my chihuahua

This is the only food my chihuahua will eat. I tried feeding him can food and soft morsels after he had his teeth pulled. He wouldn't even try the food. I gave him his x-small royal canin dry adult for 12 + years & he ate it as usual. He loves his royal canin and will eat nothing else. I am so thankful this is a excellent dog food. Keeps his coat healthy along with his health. Thank you royal canin.

The boys love it!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have two chihuahuas, and they love this food. I switched over to Royal Canin 6 months ago, and they are happier and healthier than they have ever been. It is easier for our oldest to chew with his sensitive teeth, and our younger chihuahua has had less digestive since we made the switch. I am so glad that the vet recommended this to us.

I'm 14 going on forever

I ordered this on line for my boss lady. She stays active with the our boarder collie, rat terrier and chihuahua. Lately she has been a little lethargic. As soon as I feed this to her, she ate it dry. And I soak her food because she is missing teeth. I love this product and with be purchasing this again.
