Size Health Nutrition: Every size and age has unique needs

Dogs are incredible and come in every shape and size. But as they vary in size, life stage and lifestyle, their physiological needs do too. That’s why ROYAL CANIN®’s Size Health Nutrition range is carefully tailored to every dog’s specific needs.

Why health is not one-size-fits-all

Our dogs enrich our lives in every way. While their size has no bearing on how incredible they are, it does affect how their bodies work.

1.Different jaw sizes

All dogs have 42 teeth but different jaw sizes. For extra-small dogs, having so many teeth packed into a small mouth can lead to dental sensitivities.

2.Different digestive tracts

Large dog breeds have proportionally smaller digestive tracts than small dog breeds, meaning they're more susceptible to digestive sensitivities.

3.Different specificities

Compared to smaller breeds, the body mass of muscular and larger dog breeds puts extra pressure on their joints.

4.Different ageing periods

Size impacts ageing – smaller dogs reach their senior years at around 12 years old compared to larger dogs at 8 years old.
