Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition Mini Special dry dog food

Small dogs have a tendency to be fussy eaters and can also suffer from digestion problems. Royal Canin Mini Special features exclusive flavors and enhanced palatability to appeal to even the most finicky appetite. Also, small dogs sometimes do not absorb proteins as well as other dogs, which is why it is important to use prebiotics and digestible proteins for the best possible nutrient absorption.

  • Helps maintain digestive health
  • Stimulates appetite
  • Kibble helps reduce tartar formation
  • 100% Complete and Balanced Nutrition
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Mini Special dry dog is for dogs 9-22lb with a sensitive stomach and fussy appetite from 10 months to 8 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It IS For Picky Dogs My maltese is extremely picky; she won't eat anything that isn't cooked from scratch or small enough. She also does NOT like trying new food (I have wasted so much money buying new food only for her to ignore it.) This is the only kibble she'll eat. Although I'm glad she loves this particular brand, it is a little pricey for me but I don't mind as long as she's happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 9 y/o Maltese has been battling weight loss issues off and on for the past 2 years, more so this past year, it doesn't help he has the typical bad teeth issues that plague his breed. Despite only having a handful of teeth left, this is the ONLY food he will eat, fortunately it softens nicely with warm water or I don't know what I would do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! Just what I needed for my dog. My rescue dog has had stomach issues for a while. I decided to switch him to the Special dry food after success with the vet prescription gastrointestinal canned food. He has not had any issues with diarrhea or vomiting since I made the switch. I have been very happy with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My dogs LOVED it!! I tried this product because I received a coupon for a free bag. My dogs loved it, & preferred it to their usual dry food. Kibble size was perfect. I would have given this product 5 stars if it was more affordable.
