Nutrition for life

A dog’s nutritional needs change throughout its life. A dog’s life stage or age is one of the most important considerations when choosing your dog’s food. Certain stages in your dog’s life, such as growth when they are a puppy, call for more specific amounts of key nutrients for optimum health. Royal Canin provides tailored nutritional solutions for your dog at every stage of their life, from puppyhood through to their senior years. Discover how life stage can have an impact on their nutritional requirements.
