Where to Buy
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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super food for CoCo My puppy was delivered about 9 weeks old. Started feeding food I had for puppies. Didn't eat then and on to food breeder had fed first and didn't eat. Went to pet store and they suggested Royal Cannine. I though a little expensive but came home with it. CoCo dived in and began eating. I have since then fed to my 2 1/2 year old Shih Tzu. They love it and are doing great with their new food. I will continue to purchase R C. One great food for Shih Tzu's is the size and shape of the food for the puppy with a small mouth. Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy and Healthy puppy Shih Tzu Royal Canin Puppy Shih Tzu solved a number of issues. first on the list was vomiting which ended with RC - ease of picking up food was solved with special shape of RC - am able to use food as treats so no chance of overfeeding and getting an overweight pup by measuring daily food ration and putting aside enough for training treats which works great. Since only one store occasionally carries Shih Tzu puppy am on a subscription oline source which is always on time and never run out. Thank you Royal Canin for a flourishing pup.

She also reminded me when trhe food was low. She is now 18 months old and still loves the food, and she is as healthy as dogs can be. I do give her Greenies once a day as a snack. No more dog breath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Dog & Puppies LOVE this food! I switched Evvie to this puppy food, during the last four weeks of her pregnancy and while she nurses. The food keeps her strong and healthy, during her pregnancy. Her babies have all remained strong and healthy. They steadily gain weight, and her milk production is strong and filling. This food also helps maintain my dogs' allergies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size I bought this for my 10 month Shih Tzu about 4 months ago and have continued! She has a very sensitive stomach and most of the other dog foods I’ve tried for her have made her vomit. I made the switch to this food and she hasn’t vomited since! So happy I made the switch for her!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confused about feeding amounts I bought this for my 8 week old ShihTzu per breeder recommendation...It’s puppy food so there should be a dosing recommendation for 2 mo old who weighs 3 pounds... your package gives No dosing amount for puppies under 8 pounds... Since when does a ShihTzu puppy weigh 8+ pounds?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The dogs love it! I have two Shih Tzu's and a large Shepherd mix who thinks that he is a giant Shih Tzu. We tried this food out with a coupon and a sale at Petco. All three dogs loved it. I continue to buy this brand and there always seems to be a good coupon out there as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food for our Lukkas! We started to feed Lukkas with Pedigree (puppy) when he was 3 months old and suddenly we noticed that he is not happy when eating it then we decided to ask a Vet for suggestion and he advised us to have a Holistic Lamb puppy food instead. However, still Lukkas doesn't seem to be happy everytime we serve his food. I've went online and go through some sites to know what's the best food for him because everytime he looks sad, it usually breaks our heart to see him like that. I have read some reviews about Royal Canin and it makes me decide to have it just for a try to see if there will be a change. I bought a 1.5kg Royal Canin for shih Tzu puppy in a mall and when I got home, I tried to feed him a little bit to see his reaction about his new food and we were surprised to see how happy he is. That's the time we decided to buy Royal Canin for Lukkas even though we have to spend more this time. Until now, it never fails me to see how happy he is and weight, fur changed as well. I'll suggest everyone who loves their pet and wants to make sure that they go for a quality food - Royal Canin is the best and is a MUST!
