Product Reviews
Royal Canin ® Size Health Nutrition™ X-SMALL Adult dry dog food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal Royal Canin Family Have been using Royal Canin for 8 years for my 2 other dogs, so when we got a third who is very tiny it made sense to me to get her the x-small dog food. The size of the food is great for her tiny mouth. All my dogs love their food, each get a different formula. What sold me on this brand was when my 9 yr old stopped wanting to eat, we tried all sorts of brand to get her to eat. Read small dogs as they age can get picky. Chose mature dog by RC and she has been eating happily for over a year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love it! I usually buy the Yorkie breed specific food, but my retailer was out of it. I saw this on the shelf and decided I would try it instead of ordering online or running to different stores. Both dogs love this as much as they do the breed specific! There were no digestion issues with changing the food and the littlest of the 2 (5 pounds) I think enjoys it more since the pieces are even smaller. Since switching to Royal Canin their picky eating stopped and they went from under weight from when I got them to normal weight. They are sturdy dogs with a lot of energy and gorgeous coat's. The quality of ingredients is important to me and I'm glad I found this food for my dogs. Told the Breeder to switch brands for healthier dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and easy for small dogs to chew. I bought this last week for my 1 year old Yorkie. She was on the Royal Canin Puppy for Yorkshire Terriers and loved it. I bought a bag of the Royal Canin Adult for Yorkshire Terriers and the pieces are to big and hard for her to chew (much larger than the puppy food). She only weighs 4 pounds. I bought the x-small adult because the pieces are small and easy for her to chew. She loves it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yorkie loves it! Our Yorkie grew up on the Royal Canin Yorkie puppy food but the adult Yorkie food was too big for her to eat. We found the x-small adult and she loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most picky Dog in the World eats Royal Canin.. There is no dog who is a picker eater than my Pixie. She is the most amazing looking Pappillion, (her grandfather, Kirby, won best in Show at Westminster in 1999) weighs 6 1/2 pounds, and spits food out if she dosn't like it. Have you ever seen a dog spit out steak. People do not believe me until they see it. Steak, chicken, eggs, cheese, anything all dogs love is subject to Pixies taste at the moment. Sometime she'll eat it, sometimes she sniffs it, and walks away in a huff.I have purchased and had to give away almost every dog food made. We were visiting with her cousin, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who was on a special Royal Canin food, and amazed to see Pixie steal some of Rustys food. We ran out and purchased the Royal Canin Small Dog food - and amazingly she eats it.OK so sometimes I hand feed her, but she eats it! Cue the Happy Dance Music!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Quality I started my baby on Royal Canin, and currently she is on the X-Small Adult. I get compliments from her Vet and Groomer on how healthy she is and it all about this food. My baby is healthy! No issues at all. She loves it and gets excited when it's time to be fed. I highly recommend Royal Canin brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chewy loves it! I have been feeding Chewy Royal Canin since it was recommended from the breeder. He seem to like it and after he's done eating, he has a big burp which is so cute and signals to me that he is done. :)
