Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition ™ Starter Mother and Babydog Mousse in Sauce Canned Dog Food is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent to produce milk I have found that this is the absolute only food to add to mothers diet to help her produce a good milk supply. I raise yorkies and chihuahuas and they are a breed who can sometimes have trouble producing enough milk. Adding a can of this per day to their normal diet ( royal canin mini adult and mini puppy dry free fed) boosts momma dogs milk production and she has no problems!!!! I always start feeding a can per day about 2 weeks prior to due date all the way untill babies are weaned. Babies love it too as their first food!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For a Tired Mom My miniature poodle girls are diligent moms and get extremely worn out in the first week or two after birth. This food is easy for them to eat quickly and get the nutrients/calories they need to produce enough milk. It also helps keep them hydrated. It does cause loose stool, so I recommend mixing it with a tblsp of puréed sweet potatoes. For the puppies, I start them with a bit of this at the first weaning feedings. The food’s aroma and taste makes them much more excited about eating from the dish. It also comes in smaller tray sizes and is sold at local Petsmart stores for a bit of a markup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from alaskan malamute I have used this on puppies that were recovering from Parvo, and an orphan litter. It was wonderful, easy to digest and pleasing to a recovering baby, or puppies with no mom. Wonderful product
