Was giving my pup another brand from 10-12 weeks and she wasn’t really eating much and gave her the nasty number twos, switched her over to Royal Canin and she loves it and it’s doing good on her stomach too!

Great product

I have a picky baby but ever since we switched him to royal cainen he loves the food and eats very well. I just wish you would make a bigger bag for shih tzu puppy’s that’s the only down fall.

Where can I buy in bulk?!

This is too good, my pup eats this too fast! She really likes her food! I mix it with the same brand wet food. She healthy, happy, and gorgeous! Why change something that’s been working perfectly?! I just need to know where I can buy it in bulk!

Confused about feeding amounts

I bought this for my 8 week old ShihTzu per breeder recommendation...It’s puppy food so there should be a dosing recommendation for 2 mo old who weighs 3 pounds... your package gives No dosing amount for puppies under 8 pounds... Since when does a ShihTzu puppy weigh 8+ pounds?

Happy puppyhood leads to joyous adult Shih Tzu ! !

My puppy Shih Tzu, "Pinky Petunia," has grown to be a very precious adult dog. She finished her Royal Canin Puppy Food and has started her first bag of Adult Shih Tzu dry food. She is the best dog in the world.
