Picky Eater

I have a very very very picky 12 year old maltese. I have had him since he was 9 years old and it has been and very stressful and expensive few years trying to get him to eat. I bought a bag of the royal canin maltese food and he actually eats!

My Maltese chihuahua has always been a picky eater and picky I mean she won’t touch other dog food besides Royal Canin! I tried a whole lot of different brands but this one she just loves and eats every time. It keeps her coat shiny and healthy and digestive running smooth! She’s 6 years old and still healthy as ever running around like a puppy! Great dog food highly recommend.
