Meets the high energy needs of small dogs while helping maintain a healthy weight with L-carnitine

Supports skin and coat health with optimal levels of fatty acids like EPA and DHA

Exclusive small, highly palatable kibble adapted for miniature jaws

Satisfies the fussy appetites of small dogs with enhanced palatability

Your small dog has some big nutritional needs. That’s because small breed dogs actually have higher energy requirements than big dogs. Not only that, these mini pooches have unique traits—and are pretty picky when it comes to what’s put in their bowl.

Royal Canin Small Adult dry dog food is formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of small breed adult dogs, as they actually require higher levels of calories per pound of body weight than large dogs. L-carnitine helps metabolize fat to help your dog maintain a healthy weight. Ideal levels of EPA and DHA support healthy skin and a beautiful, shiny coat. Plus, enhanced palatability helps satisfy even the pickiest 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 Small Adult 8+ and Small Aging 12+ to help keep them happy and healthy as they age.

Great structure, nice smell, easy feeding

I bought this when my puppy was 5months old. It’s has been almost 1year now and my puppy only likes to eat this. I’m happy to see him growing with his favorite food.

Royal Canine keeps our dog healthy

We have been feeding our 1 1/2 year old miniature poodle Royal Canine as suggested from the breeder. He loves the food and it keeps him healthy and full of playful energy.

I've been using Royal Canin for 3 years now. I've rescued 2 Shih Tzus and Royal Canin made such a huge difference in my dogs´ digestion. They are so happy and I am so grateful that I don't think I could switch ever.

The Best Food

My dogs can't eat anything but this. They have no digestive issues with this food. I fed them the food from the vet's office and even after a month of eating it they had problems. Went back to Royal Canin and they were back to normal.
