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.

  • Supports healthy aging

Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition™ Mini Mature 8+ dry dog food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs love it We have a Cairn (almost 13 y/o) and Westie (almost 9y/o). Both came from puppy mills and this food has not caused any dietary issues for them. They both enjoy eating Royal Canin. We wish there was a larger bag to purchase in stores as buying small bags is very expensive esp with 2 dogs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dogs like it buy where's the meat? At the suggestion of my vet, I put my dogs, a Cairn Terrier and a Westie, on this food. When looking at the ingredients, I don't see any real meat or veggies and fruits. They seem to be fine, so I'll continue to feed Royal Canin Mature 8+ to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing my dogs eat! My dogs just love this food. We switched from another food a few years ago and they love the flavor and crunchiness of this food. It is hard to please all three of my dogs but Royal canin seemed to do it.
