Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition Giant Puppy dry dog food

Your giant puppy is destined for big things—and as they grow, they have big nutritional needs. Giant breed dogs have the longest growth period out of other sized dogs—that’s why Royal Canin growth formulas for giant-sized dogs come in two stages: Giant Puppy and Giant Junior. This Giant Puppy dry dog food is made specifically for the first stage (up to 8 months). As they grow in size, their bones and joints are building a foundation for their giant frame. What you feed them now sets them up for a healthy, happy life as an adult.

Royal Canin Giant Puppy dry dog food is targeted nutrition made for your lovable giant. Its precise calcium and phosphorus content helps promote strong bones and joint health, while key antioxidants and minerals support their developing immune systems and keep their bodies growing strong. Highly digestible proteins and prebiotic ingredients also help break down food while promoting healthy digestion and optimal stools. This exclusive kibble is designed specifically for your growing dog's large jaw to help them chew their kibble thoroughly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what our Great Dane puppy Wonder needed! We were feeding our Dane a holistic brand and she wasn’t have regular bowel movements and they didn’t seem solid. Our vet recommened Royal Canin and we will NEVER choose another brand. She is growing right on track, very active, regular bowels and her coat is beautiful! Every large breed owner should consider buying this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fussy Dane Food My Great Dane came to me at 6 weeks (I realize how early this is) with extreme GI issues and a terrible case of worms. Doctors prescribed food but nothing seemed to work for him. He was underweight and eating only chicken and rice for months. Royal canin fit his needs perfectly and he went from being a sickly, skinny puppy to a 126 pound 9 month old! He is now on Giant breed junior and we love it just as much! I just wish they made breed specific food for Dane puppies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finally a good for the big dogs I raised my Scottish deerhound and Newfypoo on this food. I appreciate that it is specially formulated for the special needs of the giant breeds--controlled growth and early joint supplementation. Also because it has added pro and prebiotics, it didn't bother my deerhound's sensitive stomach. I tried several brands before Royal Canin and he had diarrhea with all of them until I found this food. Additionally they loved the taste and were truly excited at mealtime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kevin loves it! I started my Newfoundland puppy on this food shortly after picking him up at 8 weeks. He loves it, always eats every last bite. Has perfect stools. Has been growing at a steady rate with no issues. I couldn't be happier. Newfoundlands are notorious picky eaters with chronic soft stools and I've never had any issues with my pup. His coat is beautiful and I suggest Royal Canin to all my clients and friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Saint Bernard puppy loves this food! Bruin, our 8-month-old Saint Bernard puppy, was having some trouble putting on weight. He is our very first giant breed dog. Our other dogs are 2 Golden Retrievers and a Labrador Retriever, so we are new to giant breeds. Our breeder had us switch him from puppy to adult food when he was 4 months old to slow his growth down since you don't want a giant breed to grow too fast (it's bad for their joints). We did as she said and switched him to an adult formula. We were planning to keep him on puppy food until he was 6 months old, but she's the breeder and knows more about this particular breed than we do, so we took her advice. However, since switching him to adult food, it's been nearly impossible to put any weight on him. He is extremely tall, but he was also too skinny. He was eating a good 8-9 cups of food per day, but you could still easily feel his spine as well as pretty much every other bone in his body. We knew that he was way too thin. After consulting our vet as well as some other Saint owners, we decided to go ahead and temporarily put him back on puppy food to help him bulk up a bit. That's when we discovered Royal Canin Giant puppy formula. After reading the reviews, we bought 2 bags and started him on it. Royal Canin is one of the very few companies who actually makes a giant breed puppy formula. Most other companies only offer large breed formulas, which does not suffice for a giant breed who will weigh up to 200 pounds as an adult. Bruin looks fantastic since starting on this food! He has definitely put on some much needed weight and his coat looks amazing. We will probably keep him on this formula until he turns a year old in 4 months. At that time, we will switch him to a Royal Canin adult formula. I can't say enough great things about this food. If you have a giant breed puppy, this should definitely be your go-to food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My Great Dane is loving his dog food!!! I did over 3yrs of  research to find the very best dog for my family/ lifestyle so with so much time & money spent in picking the perfect dog, I couldn’t even imagine feeding him garbage . I only feed my children the best and that’s what Dexter is he’s my fur baby!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Puppy Food My 12 month Labradoodle has been on Royal Canin Large Bread Puppy Food since he was 8 weeks old. He is in great physical condition and has enjoyed his puppy food until just recently. It feels like he is getting bored with the same old-same old. Wish Royal Canin offered more flavors/varieties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the breed specific food I wanted a quality food for my St. Bernard puppy. We were feeding her iVet large breed puppy, but neither that nor Science Diet seemed like the best food for her. Love how you have formulated not only the puppy, but the junior as well for giant breeds. Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for our growing girl We had to search to find a retailer that would offer our new English Mastiff puppy a nutritious food that would be perfect to help her grow up happy and healthy. Once we researched the giant breed puppy formula we were hooked. A great food that she loves!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need measuring cup along with the dog food The food seems to be good but you should provide the measuring cup in each package. It gets very hard to determine the right amount without it and the measuring cups are typically never available at your stores. Please fix this moving forward .
