Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy transition from puppy formulation In the last month, we transitioned to the new food. Our dog adapted quickly and happily to the new food taste and size. I would recommend this to anyone with a Maltese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bite Size Morsels I happened onto Maltese food 2 weeks ago (each time I shop at a pet store I always check if it’s been formulated for a Maltese yet). To my surprise I found a small bag at Petsmart. Usually I shop at Petco because my baby girl is styled at Petco in Edwardsville, IL. But, they do not carry Maltese food. So I’ll have to shop between stores. My baby girl, MIA is 2 years old on Nov 2 and I only feed her the best. Vet recommended Royal Canin. She also enjoys a teaspoon of soft food mixed in with dry which my husband calls it ‘gourmet’ because it also goes in the microwave for 4 seconds, stir again. She is very much so catered to. Thank you so much for formulating a dry food for Mia my Maltese. She absolutely loves it. It didn’t really take her anytime to adjust from the x-small adult Royal Canin she was eating. Thank you again, the experience has been positive. I also purchased a 10 week old Yorkshire Terrier for my mother and she is also feeding her baby Royal Canin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was using the RC mini puppy dry food from my breeder for my Maltese and wanted to switch once he turned 10 months. I found out that RC had the Maltese breed specific food and it is absolutely PERFECT!!! My fussy Maltese (Rocco) definitely enjoys this food and for once will eat all his food on his own with out me trying to force feed. I truly noticed a difference in his coat, as well. It works! He looks more white and silky, and it is definitely good to his digestive system too. I suggest RC for all pure breed owners for whichever breed you own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My MalChi LOVES My Maltese chihuahua has always been a picky eater and picky I mean she won’t touch other dog food besides Royal Canin! I tried a whole lot of different brands but this one she just loves and eats every time. It keeps her coat shiny and healthy and digestive running smooth! She’s 6 years old and still healthy as ever running around like a puppy! Great dog food highly recommend.
