Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition™ Mini Mature 8+ dry dog food

Small dogs need more than just a small kibble. They need more energy than big dogs, and they have a shorter and more intense growth period. Plus, they typically live longer than large dogs, and have a more finicky appetite. Royal Canin Mini formulas are designed to meet the specific needs of small dogs throughout every stage of their life.

Small dogs have very distinct physiological traits such as jaw size, bone structure, digestive systems, and high energy requirements which can benefit from specialized nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitality We began our relationship with Royal Canin years ago. Our Daisy has never been more vibrant and full of life. We love the healthy ingredients and so does her belly! She had terrible issues with other brands. We are thankful that Royal Canin will keep her as energetic as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 9 year old is healthy and strong My Rat Terrier, Sabrina, was rescued from a puppy mill at age 3 and has never had any other food in the 6 years she has lived with me. She is healthy and strong and her teeth pass inspection every time at her annual check-up. I am so glad my vet recommended Royal Canin on our first visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and Age Specific! I have been feeding my dog Royal Canin Mature since he turned nine years of age. Alex is a poodle mix and I am convinced that this excellent diet combined with exercise and love is a major contribution to his excellent health and good check-ups. In addition, my veterinarian whole heartedly approves of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now he is older than me in dog years.. The switch from puppy to adult to mature has been easy and wonderful. My dog eats his food without any hesitation. He has never have digestive problems. I wish that this is easily available in the larger sizes more often (need to special order).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes good I have been using Royal Canin for 14 years. Sadie is a fussy eater and the Mini Special was a life saver. She wouldn't eat anything else. I switched to Mini Mature 8+ a few years back and she still loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Food for our Shih Tzu Bought for our dog who turned 8 yrs. old in June. Graduated from mini morsels for dogs up to 8 yrs old. Also gave her the Royal Canin for Shih Tzu breed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog seems to enjoy it quite a bit I have been feeding my dog Royal Canin for 9 years. I gave him the pup food at first, then the adult dog food, and now the mature dog food. He munches it right up when it goes in his bowl. He seems energized, he's a good weight, and his coat is sleek and soft -- all of which I attribute to the food. :)
