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 Puppy kibbles are exclusively designed to make it easier for the Shih Tzu puppy to pick up and encourages him to chew.

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

Digestive Health
Digestive health is essential during the puppy's growth period: the digestive system is not yet fully developed and cannot absorb nutrients in the same way as adult dogs. The Shih Tzu Puppy formula helps support digestive health and helps to maintain a balanced intestinal flora.

Natural Defenses
During the growth period, the puppy's natural defenses are not yet fully developed. An exclusive complex of antioxidants (vitamins E and C, lutein and taurine) in Shih Tzu Puppy helps support the Shih Tzu puppy's natural defenses.

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Breed Health Nutrition ® Shih Tzu Puppy dry dog food 2.5 lb bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Canin is the best dog food ever!!! My Shih Tzu since birth fans always had a problem with dog food. Then one day I discovered Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Dog food. This worked well for many years. NOW we are in heaven because I discovered Royal Canin Shih Tzu breed dog food. The breed specific food is the best way to go because it is made with a special blend for your specific dog. Little Willie and I are in Royal Canin Heaven.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great for my pups, but Horrible value for me!!! I have not been able to find the Shih Tzu puppy brand in a large bag. I have two puppies and I have to say, although they love the food, I may have to switch to another brand because they go through two of the 2.5 bags a week. Having to purchase the smaller bags means that I am spending more than I would if it came in a larger bay. Royal Canin, if you care anything about your customers please make this in a larger size!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from COCO loves the taste We started our little COCO right away on this food, because our big girls eat Royal Canin for years. I love that it is easy for their little teeth to grab and chew and that it is easy for their little tummies to digest. We never had a problem getting the baby to eat her meals, my baby comes running when it is time to eat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our puppy loves it! Our family dog passed away about a year ago and we felt a huge void in our family. So, after a few months we looked at getting a puppy. We found several breeders and after several more months we found our new little addition. Crosley​ is a Shi-poo. The breeder feed her Royal Canin and recommended for us to keep her on it . We took her to her first vet check up and he also stated it was a really good dog food. So, we used the soft food and mixed it with dry until she could tolerate dry food. She is now a year old and we are moving into the adult dog food. Every now and then we will give her a can of the soft dog food. She loves it. She is extremely healthy and has a shiny coat. We love it and will keep her on it.
