Royal Canin® Size Health Nutrition X-Small Adult dry dog food

Your extra-small dog has big nutritional needs. Their boundless, playful energy needs a diet that can keep up with them.

It’s formulated with adapted energy levels to meet the high energy needs of miniature and toy breed dogs. Ideal levels of EPA and DHA support healthy skin and a beautiful, shiny coat. Highly digestible proteins and precise levels of fibers help promote healthy digestion. This extra-small and highly palatable kibble is designed for tiny teeth and jaws, pleasing even the pickiest of eaters. Add a variety in texture with Royal Canin Adult Beauty wet dog food. And when your dog reaches their later years, there’s Royal Canin X-Small Adult 8+ and X-Small Aging 12+ to help keep them happy and healthy as they age.

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. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite for my Papillons My three dogs love this! The only complaint is that most pet stores only carry the small bag. Instead I would buy on line especially when they offer free shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best food for tiny dogs!! I was buying the Yorkshire Terrier Adult Royal Canin and my dog was just not eating it much. She is 7 years old and only weighs four and a half pounds... I was told about this adult Tiny Kibble so we tried it. My Bella LOVES it!!! She is also finicky but when she sees this bag, she barks and lays beside it to get some!! I think the size helps also. She doesn't like big pieces of food and the kibble size is perfect. Thank you for making such an awesome tasty product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this I have nothing negative to say about this product. My dog is 3 pounds and has a tiny mouth. The morsels are perfect size for her and she loves the flavor. I have tried other foods that say "tiny bites," but they never seem to be small enough or the taste seems to be unappealing to her. I always go back to this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food, the best you can get I’ve worked in a vet clinic for 20 years so have had access to many good foods, Royal Canin has been the absolute best hands down. The breeder and customer support is phenomenal, the worldwide reputation is unbeatable. The dogs love it, their waste is minimal. The starter or mother and baby food is genius, my 3 week old toy poodles are climbing in the dish to eat it. I can’t say enough good things, I recommend it to everyone I talk to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This food was recommended by a vet who only fed her animals Royal Canin. It stays fresh a long time, my chihuahua mix loves it. She has never seemed tired of or bored with It & it can be given dry or mixed w/some warm water to make a gravy like mix. She's stayed in good health for the 10 yrs we've had her, is still energetic and stays at a good weight for size. Her coat is very shiny and she has no skin issues. She doesn't pass a lot of stool either. We've tried other "healthy" dry foods periodically and none compared. Her coat and energy level would decline. Her stool was bigger, more frequent and had a putrid smell in comparison so back to Royal Canin and not planning on trying any other food anymore. It's also cost effective. A bag lasts us a long time and I believe has helped keep her out of the vet's office other than for routine annual exam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog loves this! My dog was dumped on the side of the road in a crate. They left a bag of puppy purina food in there. I got her checked out and the vet guessed her age around 1 1/2 I switched to adult blue buffalo food. She ate for a while then completely stopped. I switched her to this she eats it all up! She has been on it for over a year and still loves it! It meets her high engery needs and it's small chunks so she doesn't choke!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My puppies love this kibble I have used Royal Canin Urinary SO feline in the past and my cat loved the taste. When I got my puppies last year I decided to try the X-small dry dog food. My dogs are tiny so the tiny morsels are easy for them to eat and they love the taste. So yummy in fact, that even my cat sneaks some every now and then. Also nice to know they are getting a high quality, nutritional meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My chihuahuas are so picky and after trying every type of dog food possible, I was reccomend this X small Royal canin and to my surprise they loved it, I haven't looked back, esp my smallest dog stinky who has had gland problems most of her life, with monthly vet visits, since introducing her to this has completely helped her glands, so to me this has been a life safer,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST dog food for my little Pomeranian! I've been feeding Royal Canin X-SMALL Adult dry dog food to my little Pomeranian, Bindi, for more than a year, and her coat, eyes, and teeth are perfectly beautiful! She's never turned away her food--always happy to eat Royal Canin. We sometimes mix in a little Beauty in her morning scoop. Highly recommend Royal Canin products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only food my finicky Maltese will eat. Lil Princess Mia is so finicky, I have to stir the food, set it in the microwave, then give it to her before she will have anything to do with it. My husband says she is spoiled. I have to agree. But, it is the only food she will eat, and the only way she will eat her food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific balance of nutrients and my dogs love it! I recently purchased the large bag of Roayl Canin on line at a considerable savings over the in store small bag. Absolutely love this product and my three (3) dogs love it even more. Perfect bit size for their little mouths and so crunchy and delicious they want more and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Pomeranian loves her very much... One year old Pomeranian is eating for about two months x small Adult dry food. It has healthy skin and is very energetic. It would have been great if glucosamine sulphate and candorite supplements were made.
