Royal Canin ® Canine Health Nutrition ™ Starter Mousse tray dog food 3.5 oz - Mousse (24 cans/case) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Beginner food! I got my puppy from a breeder 2 weeks early so my Yorkie/Maltese was 6 1/2 weeks old and super small with not many teeth so this Starter mousse was PERFECT for her! It has formula mixed in the food so they are getting the nutrients and vitamins from that along with adding on the pounds and gaining lots of energy. She was on this and the can Starter mousse - it comes in a box of 3 small but wide cans and it's the same as this but you get more in it. I used it by itself and then slowly mixed in the Starter mousse dry food with it and she still ate it. about a month ago when Lucy was 3 months old she began not wanting the wet food - Vet told me it could be because her taste buds are growing and this is too bland for her or she wants what my Shih-Tzu is eating. So they do eat something else for wet food mixed with the Royal Canin but this is still a great puppy starter for tiny pups!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppies love it! Used this product (3 can pack in box) for our litter in late Fall of 2015. Based on the positive results; not having to pre-soak hard kibble; and feeling the puppies intestines were better prepared for kibble, we totally immersed this new litter with the Royal Canin products, starting with the HT42D. We noticed improved birth weight. Love the Crown Partners program with free delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for weening! I was given some of your starter mousse from a friend who has a rescue. My French Bulldog had just had her first litter and I was completely new to raising puppies. All six puppies LOVED the starter mousse and the starter kibble. They transitioned to solid food so easily and grew to be gorgeous healthy puppies! So much so, that other breeders were asking what I was feeding them because they looked so healthy. I just love the product and will continue to feed my future litters the same!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puppy Pleaser I gladly accepted a Maltese/Poodle cross puppy that was 6 weeks old. We switched her over to a better puppy food but she was fussy and struggled with elimination. I took her for a second visit to the Vet. They took her away and came back 15 minutes later informing us she was 5 weeks old and we were given a packet of the Royal Canin Starter Mousse. Once home, I opened the packet and put 1/3 of the mousse into a bowl. I added bottled water to the mousse to help with dehydration and also gave her a bowl of milk replacement due to her age. She went crazy for the mousse. She is no longer fussy about food and is less and less dependent on the milk replacement. It has been weeks and she has not once refused her meals. We will be graduating into regular puppy food and will remain a loyal Royal Canin customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good For A Tired Mom Very good for new moms who are reluctant eaters. Increases milk production and helps increase hydration. Does cause loose stool and recommend mixing with a spoon of puréed sweet potato. Puppies also love it for their first weaning meals since until they’re on soaked food. I do recommend the larger sized cans for the price and size difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save their lives and my time I have been breeding dogs for 25 years and have in the past made my own starter mousse. Never again this is the best BABY FOOD I could feed my babies . They love it right away and it has all the good things in it they need. When the momma dog has little milk the babies have such a great stat with 5is food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Product I started using this product when I had a mother in whelp that was being very picky. Its like the food had exactly what she needed and it kept her eating through the pregnancy. I continued to use it through nursing and now use it with the weaned litter and give to all my expectant mothers! Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of product improves puppy growth and coat. We see the positive improvements with each litter of Toy Havanese. Our Dams prefer this mixed with the Mother baby dog dry, too. This is the mousse used for weaning puppies, and overalll, it has helped with every aspect of appearance, health, and nutritional demand.
