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 53.
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 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE this food BUT.... This food is awesome for my puppy. Can't break it off him! But I find myself buying a small bag every two weeks. It's too much $ to constantly be spending. PLEASE Royal Canin, make a bigger bag for puppy shitzu's!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need to have this in a large bag!!!! Hi, I am a breeder and I am in large groups of shih tzu breeders. We have had this discussion many times in our groups, we simply cannot buy such small bags when we have multiple litters at one time. Its just not feasible. Most of us just end up buying the Large bags of the ( Mini Puppy ) and buy the ( Mini puppy kits ) as well. Since we do not want to mix the different food as this young of age. I don't see why there is a large 30# bag of the adult shih tzu food but not the puppy food. If you did make a large 30-35 # bag of the shih tzu puppy you guys would make hundreds of my breeder friends and new owners very happy! I am sure there are thousands of shih tzu breeders that I don't know that would like it if you did as well. My goal is to feed all my puppies and nursing moms the Shih Tzu puppy food, and buy the Shih Tzu Puppy kits to go home with them. They all seem to like the Shih Tzu puppy food better. They are also smaller kibble so its easier for the babies to wean on. Please consider making the larger bags of the shih tzu puppy food for me and the millions of other shih tzu breeders. Thank you
