AKC Breeder Approved! Less really is more!

I began feeding the Royal Canin Shih Tzu puppy food to my nursing mothers and their puppies about a year ago. The small sized kibble was easy for the puppies to consume and softened quickly when water was added. Perhaps the thing that impressed me most was that I could feed my adult dogs and the puppies less quantity to maintain the desired weight and condition (i.e. I could feed 3/4 of a cup of this food when I would have to feed 1 cup of a different brand to achieve the same results). This communicates to me that the food has a higher nutrient density in a form that is highly digestible to my mothers and puppies. The frequency and size of stool is smaller (less waste- another sign of highly digestible content) and my dogs are beautiful and healthy. While I initially tried this brand of food because of a promotion, I continue to feed it because the results are tangible.

Who knew

When we picked up our puppy we asked what food she had been eating and they told us Royal Canin Shih Tzu puppy. I had no idea this product was available. The breeder said great food and no diarrhea! I have given this to her ever since. She is on her last bag of puppy food and I just purchased a large bag of big girl shih tuz for her. She is growing strong and healthy. Thank you for taking care of my Tootsie Lori Fuller

Perfect size!

My dog is super picky. I bought probably 10 different types before finding this. He loves it! He is now 10 years old and doesn't have alot of teeth so I went back to the puppy formula cause its smaller in size. Will probably go to canned soon. Great product!

Excellent food

I breed shih tzus and started using this food about 2 years ago. The puppies love it and it really helps with their stools. No more smelly or loose stools.

She loves it!

When I adopted my little Shih Tzu girl I transitioned her from what the breeder gave me to the Royal Canin Shih Tzu puppy and right away she loved it! I just wish I could buy it in a bigger bag.

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!
