Fights the first signs of aging with a blend of antioxidants to maintain vitality for a long, active life

Provides skin and coat support with optimal levels of EPA and DHA

Helps promote healthy digestion with highly digestible proteins and dietary fibers

Maturing extra-small dogs and toy breeds can have a longer life span than larger dogs—and with a long life comes unique nutritional needs. They may be graying a little and slower than they were when they were younger. They’re also possibly becoming pickier about the food they eat in their mature years.

Royal Canin X-Small Adult 8+ dry dog food is targeted nutrition for your extra-small dog’s unique traits as they age. Its scientific formula helps maintain their vitality with an exclusive blend of nutrients and antioxidants. Ideal levels of EPA and DHA support healthy skin and a beautiful, shiny coat. Highly digestible proteins and a precise blend of fibers promote healthy digestion. And the extra-small, highly palatable kibble ensures even the pickiest eaters keep coming back to the bowl at every meal. Add a variety in texture with Royal Canin Mature 8+ wet dog food. And when your dog reaches their senior years, you can help keep them healthy with Royal Canin X-Small Aging 12+.

Everyone Agrees this is a WINNER

I have 4 shih tzus and all are picky eaters. It is hard to find 1 food even 2 would eat but this particular one they all 4 cannot get enough of and they will all eat it without any toppers of any kind. I can also use it for treats.

Dogs love it!

I have two small dogs, a Maltese(very fussy) with a very sensitive stomach and a dorkie( dachshund/Yorkie) who eats anything but has a tendency to overeat. They both do very well with this food. They enjoy it, their coats are nice and shiny and they’ve maintained their weight nicely.
