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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this food is great for me dog when my dog started eating this food he was happier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! My little guy can be a finicky eater at times, like many dogs. The first time I bought Royal Canin made for Shih Tzus, he ate what was in his bowl immediately. That was the first time he hadn't looked at me like "What is this?". The was over 4 years ago. He acts like his food is a treat every time I put it in his dish. Besides the fact he loves it so much, the health benefits are great. He's active, happy, with a beautiful coat at the age of 9.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sweet Baci boy's favorite :) We love our Baci...and have always made sure he ate healthy. Baci (ba-jee) (which means "kisses" in Italian) has been on Royal Canin since we adopted him ten years ago as a puppy - the breeders suggested Royal Canin and we have chosen to stick with it ever since. Although he is ten years old now, Baci still acts and plays like a puppy. We are thankful for the blessing of his good health and happy spirit. We appreciate your products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seriously Expensive Product I am satisfied with the product and have fed it to my dog for the past 5 years, but there needs to be a better price break or coupons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's the only brand of dry food I buy I have 2 shih tzus that are 7 and 8 years old. I had tried other brands when they were puppies and this is the only brand that they would eat. It is an it pricey compared to some other brands but I would rather pay more than buy something they won't eat and I end up tossing it. The older dog is super picky and she will eat this mixed with some wet food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I have been vying this for 5 years now. A few months ago I decided to buy something else and both my dogs were miserable. They hated the other brand and they icthed and scratchEd the whole time they had it. I switched back and now they are doing great again. I will never switch again. This is definitely the best food for my babies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Champ Has Always Eaten Royal Canin! About 7 years ago while working for a animal supply store, the Royal Canin rep, Dean, convinced me to change what I was feeding my Shih Tzu to this Royal Canin product. It resolved skin issues that Champ was having and helped with his breath. I've fed it to Champ ever since then. Funny thing, Daisy, our Jack Russell loves it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog health I have been using this product for almost two years for my dog. She really loves it. I will be honest I wish she would eat a cheaper brand for my pocket but she does not like any other and since it came vet recommended and dog approved I keep buying it. I am always in search of coupons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Tzu actually likes it!!! I got Scooter at 7 1/2 weeks. He started on the Royal Canine mousse then moved on to Shih Tzu puppy and now he is on adult. He loves it and that is saying something for a picky Shih Tzu. Everyone complements his skin and coat, also. I've never had a more perfect dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fur baby loves it!!! Kenji had the puppy version and now she's having the adult version. She doesn't even mind it by itself...which says a lot! She normally won't even eat the same foods more than twice! It's also a peace of mind to know she enjoys something that's nutritious for her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Enhancements I bought this food about six months ago for my dog and it has already made his hair significantly softer. His hair was a little rough and since then I've noticed it getting softer. I've even had people compliment on how soft his hair is and asked what food I buy.
