Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition Small Adult 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
  • Promotes appetite satisfaction
  • Supports skin and coat health
  • Kibble helps reduce tartar formation
  • 100% Complete and Balanced Nutrition
  • 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Dogs (weight between 9 and 22 lb) - from 10 months to 8 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All 4 of my dogs love this food! I have been through every single brand and flavor of dog food since one of my Brussels griffons was having allergies. If your a dog owner, you know how hard it is to find a food that all your dogs will like. Well I hit the jackpot with Royal Canin Adult Mini dog food. They all love it and I'm a happy dog mommy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going on 8 years My boy has always loved his food! He continues to eat it everyday with great energy and his sister even tries to steal some of his every now and then (she has hydrolized protein!) <3 Milo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Papitese! My 7-year-old Papitese has been on Royal Canin Mini Adult dog food since he grew out of his puppy food. It was recommended by our veterinarian. He is thriving on it! I mistakenly took my granddaughter's advice and tried one she recommended. After several months we noticed he had put on weight. When comparing the two foods, the 2nd dog food was 20% higher in calories, which is exactly how much weight he put on. We noticed a marked difference in his ability to jump, run, etc. We immediately switched back to Royal Canin Mini Adult. He lost the weight and is doing just great! And he loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only brand I buy for my little one I have been buying royal canin for my chihuahua since I’ve had her. She was half the size of her sister and brother in the litter and I was very concerned she would have health problems. I wanted her to have the best quality of life. I did a lot of research and fell in love with this brand of dog food for her. She also loves it. The morsels are small enough for her tiny mouth and she enjoys the flavor as well. She is now 5 years old and a whopping 2.8 pounds and healthy as can be. She never gets constipated or has an upset stomach, her mobility in her joints is great, and she is as spunky as she was when she was a puppy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only food my dogs get My Jack Russell dogs never loved any type of dog food and I bought the brand's only pet stores sold until I bought Royal Canin. They eat it like it's candy! When I raised puppies I would start them out on Royal Canin puppy in cans then on to the dry. I would send them off to their new home's with a small bag hoping that their new family would continue feeding them the best dog food that I've found. It really doesn't cost more than other brand's because you only feed them about 1/2-3/4 cup full a day and they are full. I'm on disability and if I didn't think this food was worth it I would buy something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy pups eat healthy food! We have two dogs so we needed a formula to suit them both....This was the perfect choice! Great for our sedentary dog and also great for our active little terrier. We have noticed less smelly and less often stools, and more healthy hair growth. Overall, it is obvious that the Royal Canin has had a very good results and makes happy dogs. We love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it I have been feeding this food for 6 years at least. I tried to switch my older dog to senior and he said nope. My kids eat every bit. I started feeding because of the dental benefits. I feel that my younger dogs have benefited greatly from eating this food. Italian greyhounds have dental opportunities and I feel this food really helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breeder's Best Adult Kibble Being in BIchons Frises for 15 years, and showing and breeding for 8 years, I can say without a doubt this Royal Canin Adult Kibble is the BEST! I use Adult for my show dogs, and for my Seniors 14 y/o I use the Mobility Diet. I have tried several other very well respected brands, however, Royal Canin has proven to give me the best results. I am now using the mother/baby puppy foods as well.
