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.

Product Reviews
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Royal Canin knows their stuff! I have been feeding this puppy chow to my Miniature Dachshund puppies for the last six months and I can not say enough positive things about this food! The kibble is the perfect size making it easy for them to eat and they LOVE it. Because Royal Canin works so hard at making their foods formulated for specific needs, my dogs are the healthiest, happiest dogs in town. Everyone who meets them comments on how soft and shiny their fur is and my eight year old daughter always responds with, "That's because of the food we feed them - Royal Canin!" (Someone should get this kid a job!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! About 9 months ago I was surprised to receive a Schnoodle puppy and was also able to rescue a Chiweenie puppy. I didn't know anything about small dogs and my vet recommended that I feed them Royal Canin. They coats are shinier, they go to the bathroom easier, and have their energy back. So thankful for this product. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased This brand was recommended by a rescue shelter. I had a 7 month old toy poodle that was not eating very well. When I adopted a new puppy and was recommended Cabin I decided to give it a try. I AM SOOOOO HAPPY!!! my new puppy loves the food and for the first time my toy poodle is actually eating. He loves the food and I am relieved to know that he is eating good quality food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When you can get this dog food, it's great. I would love to be able to buy Mini puppy dry dog food. When it is in stock I am very pleased with it. I have no complaints about the quality of Mini puppy dry dog food. I have a HUGE problem of just being able to order it. It has been out of stock for at least 3 months now. I call customer service and they are absolutely no help. They don't know when they are going to get it in and wont tell me as to the reason why I cant order it. It has been very frustrating for me to say the least. I order well over $250 monthly on dog food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppies love it! I feed this to all of my Yorkshire Terrier puppies. Yorkies can be finicky eaters and it is most important that the puppies are eating due to their very small size. I have never had a problem with feeding the Yorkie puppies the Royal Canin Mini Puppy. They gobble it up. I send a bag home with each new owner in their Royal Canin Puppy Packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yorkie ❤️s It Switched 5yr old yorkie from Mini Starter to Mini Puppy. Only food she will eat. Tried Yorkie bred and Bufflo Blue. She wouldn't eat either. Vet said she's not over weight, she's only 5lbs so he's okay with puppy food even though she's not a puppy. She loves the Mini Starter & Mini Puppy. Only food she's eaten since being weened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb We bought home our baby, a Shih Tzu puppy who we named Po, when he was 45 days old. Initially he had problems with his eating although we put him on baby dog milk for a while. He was not particularly fond of it. He would also get constipated which was a matter of great concern..but then we started feeding him Royal Canin Mini Puppy Dry food and there was no looking back.... Po loves his food ..he goes crazy every time I open the food box. He jumps and goes dancing till I place the food before him and then gobbles it up without even looking up.... It's been such a relief to see him enjoy his food and it's been such a transformation from the earlier days when he used to be a fussy eater needing coaxing... His motion is now normal and he is full of energy. Po says "thank you Royal Canin"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dog Food! I love this food for my Poms! I sale Pomeranian puppies and always had a problem getting them started on just dry food, so I decided to try Royal Canin and they loved it. Their stool is solid with no problems. Has great ingredients for their health. The smell is very flavorful and small enough for my puppies to eat well. I give a sample to everyone who gets one of my puppies. I am so happy with this product that I now feed my adult dogs Royal Canin. Thank you for being a great, and tasty dog food.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from it will do for now He eats it but seems to like the generic food I buy my big dogs better. It makes me wonder if I should be pausing so much for so little. Also I thinks it's drying out his skin he might be allergic to what ever is in there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Jack Russell loves this His breeder had him on Iams, and he was not overly interested in eating. I keep a bowl in his crate and one by his water bowl, and he eats like it's his job. He's grown like a weed, but not remotely chubby. He has no interest in other dogs' or people food. And his energy knows no bounds. I broke my leg 5 days after getting him, and this breed needs lots of exercise. He wears neighborhood boys who are kind enough to run him all over until I can walk him myself. He's a happy little boy!
