Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition™ Mini Puppy 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.

  • Helps maintain digestive health
  • Supports high energy needs
  • Kibble helps reduce tartar formation
  • Supports healthy immune system
  • 100% Complete and Balanced Nutrition
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Mini Puppy is for puppies (adult weight between 9 and 22lb) up to 10 months.

Proven kibble technology helps reduce the formation of tartar.

Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition™ Mini Puppy dry dog food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love your pet, give them the best I started using Royal Canin MINI puppy in March 2015 when I brought home a 13 week old Boston Terrier pup. I wanted her to have all the advantages possible when it comes to her health. I have been raising purebred dogs since 1993, and I wish I had known about Royal Canin then. I am so impressed!!! All my dogs love it. Their coats are gorgeous!! Shiny and healthy!! My 12 year old Male even eats the mini puppy. Due to heart and lung issues he has trouble maintaining his weight, and our vet suggested a puppy food. Royal Canin did the trick. He put his normal weight back on and is keeping it on. My girlfriend now uses Royal Canin for her pup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grreat for all ages of small dogs I breed toy/min Poodles, all feed all my dogs Mini Puppy, young and old. Easy for them to digest, maintain weight and energy. WE do a lot of training with our poodles, starting with obedience to agility. I recommend this to all my new puppy owners. All puppies go home with a sample.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I bought a new puppy and the breeder highly recommended Royal Canin. I've kept my puppy on the puppy food and changed my other 4 adult dogs to the small breed formula. They all love it and are doing well on it. This Dottie Lou my new Jack Russell Puppy. She's a beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful food for my chihuahua. When we first bought our puppy (chihuahua) we used Royal Canin. At one time we ran out of food and tried another because Royal Canin isn't available except in a pet store that is in another town. Our puppy, Rhett, began to shed horribly and his coat wasn't shiny and he just didn't have the energy that he normally had. We started to buy the large bag of Royal Canin Puppy food (mini) and his shedding stopped, his coat was shiny again and he is back to his old self. He is 8 months old and we will never use another food for him

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Puppy Food I have had my Shih-tzu puppy on this food since I brought him home from the breeder...He loved it and did so well on it I started our new Malti-zhu puppy on it as well...I tried to mix the food with her puppy chow they sent me home with but that just upset her stomach, so against Dr's recommendation I just switched her cold turkey, well that solved the tummy issues right away!! I believe this dog/puppy food is developed so well for puppies that you can just put them on it from the start.. This is the only food they have or will eat, I'm sold and so are they:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Terrific but expensive My pup has been on this since she started hard food. She loves it but it is costly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Royal Treat The breeder of our little German Yorkie, Tyson, recommended Royal Canin puppy food and said she feeds it to all of her fur babies. Not wanting to change food, we decided to keep our little guy on Royal Canin Mini Puppy, however we were unable to purchase locally. So we tried a higher dollar puppy food. Better right? Tyson didn't think so. He would not eat. So, what could we do? Order it. Yep, our little guy loves this kibble. We have ordered Royal Canin for the past year. We are pleased with the size of kibble and the nutrition it offers Tyson. Our veterinarian agrees. Tyson is healthy and happy. Full of energy. And loves his mealtimes. He will be turning a year old this month and will be moving on to adult food. We are all looking forward to a long healthy happy life with Tyson and Royal Canin. Puppy approved most definitely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Puppy Jeremy's breeder (Park Rise ) recommended Royal Canin junior they are the experts and we have kept him on it. He never leaves a scrap and we also use part of his allowance for treats and training. Jeremy is lively, has a shiny coat is highly inquisitive, energetic, bright eyed eager to learn and nice firm poop. (important when you have a cream carpet!) I buy 8kg sacks at competitive prices online delivered to my door.
