Product Information

Exclusive Kibble: Special Brachycephalic Jaw
The Shih Tzu is a good example of the "brachycephalic" jaw type with a very short muzzle. Shih Tzu kibbles are exclusively designed to make it easier for the Shih Tzu to pick up and encourages him to chew.

Healthy Skin
The skin reflects the dog's state of health. An appropriate food is important in maintaining healthy skin. Shih Tzu Adult helps support the skin's role as a barrier with an exclusive complex of nutrients and helps maintain skin health (EPA, DHA and Vitamin A).

Coat Health
The Shih Tzu's hair is known for its continuous growth and natural softness. This exclusive formula contributes to maintaining the health of the Shih Tzu's long coat. Enriched with Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA), Omega-6 fatty acids and biotin.

Stool & Odor Reduction
This formula helps reduce fecal smell and volume, and helps support good digestion with highly digestible proteins (LIP), an appropriate fiber content and high quality carbohydrate sources.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Breed Health Nutrition ® Shih Tzu Adult dry dog food is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from where can i get this made in the USA I bought this product in the USA via Amazon, and my 8 year old Shihtzu loved it. As i could only carry a couple of packets I then bought the same product from Royal canin India. There is a difference in the components and the colour of the kibble and my pet is not so happy eating it. This one is made in France. Can I get the american made kibble delivered to India? Please let me know as the dealers and pet shops don't seem to think its different or that it shouldn't matter, but obviously if the dog doesn't eat it happily there is a difference, plus the ingredients marked on the pac ket are different. Help!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky dog loves this! I have a Shih Tzu that is a VERY picky eater. He has been spoiled with us buying boneless chicken at the supermarket, then cook it for him. Of course he loves it now and will not eat any dry food. We know that he needs dry food to complete his nutritional needs, and help keep his teeth clean. He was starting to be constipated on chicken only. We bought at least 7 or 8 different "deluxe" dry food to be put on his plate with his chicken. He would not touch any of it! Then his vet told us to try your Hills Science Diet dry food for Shih Tzus. He loves it and we do not have to beg and bribe him to eat it, and the kibbles are just the right size, not too large or too small! Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just back from the Vet Oreo (lhasa mix) has been eating this food since he was one. We just got back from the Vet. She couldn't believe we have never had his teeth professionally cleaned and that they were in perfect condition at 8 1/2 years. The special design of the food really works at keeping his teeth clean. Before we switched to the Shih Tzu mix, he had skin issues and probably food allergies. He has not had any skin problems since he started this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to find! My Shih Tzu's both have sensitive stomachs and used to throw up constantly. Once I put them on Royal Canin Shih Tzu food, it has improved their lives forever! They love it and you would never know they had sensitive stomachs! We are 5 years strong believers in Royal Canin products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves it I have had our Max on Royal Canin for Shih Tzu since we brought him home at 8 weeks. First for puppies and now he is on the adult version. He has never had a problem with eating this brand and he gets full with his daily dose. He is healthy at the age of 5 yrs now...wish we would have used this brand on our previous house pets we loved and miss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shaped kibble! I adopted my Shih Tzu 5 1/2 years ago at a city shelter, not knowing for positive that he was a purebred until a DNA test a couple of years ago, He has always been a picky eater ( I guess he does not remember where he was for a close month) and although I feed him chicken and turkey I cook for him, he gets all the "Doggie" minerals etc. in his kibble! Of course I have tried other brands of dry food but because of his "special" jaw and mouth features, he prefers this! Also the taste of course helps too! He loves RC!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty for Picky Eater We searched and searched for a dry dog food that our ShihTsu would eat. Until we tried Royal Canin ShihTsu Adult our then 7 year old would hardly eat anything dry. We were concerned about his teeth and so we tried it. He's been eating Royal Canin for about a year now and still likes it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dogs Love It! I feed my Shih Tzu's Royal Canin for Shih Tzu brand dry food and it keeps their hair and skin shiny and healthy. So many other Shih Tzu's suffer from skin ailments. I'm confident that continual feed of Royal Canin dry food formulated for the Shih Tzu breed wards off most skin ailments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! After 15 bags.... I have a 3 year old 28 pound mixed breed dog(part Shih Tzu) who tends to be sensitive and picky! Because he is not a pure breed Shih Tzu I had never tried it. He hates most kibble and tends to swallow them whole. He even swallowed your medium breed whole. If you find one that he can crunch and will he doesn’t eat much. So..Due to the different kibble shapes and sizes y’all offer I tried all of the breeds that he has in him except Shepard dog. He wouldn’t touch the Yorkshire Terrier one and he has that in him too. The English bulldog was too big and he really wasn’t that into it to sit and eat 2 cups a day. The Shih Tzu was a big hit! And even though they are tiny he was trying to chew them!!! I was pleasantly shocked! He consistently went for those over all other kibble. I hope he does well on this and continues to like it. His fur grows really fast and maybe this will help make his coat healthier and shinier especially when we grow it out in winter. I went and bought a 10 pound bag. Wish they came in 15 pounds too.
