WEIGHT MAINTENANCE: L-carnitine helps maintain a healthy weight, while helping to meet the high energy needs of small dog breeds

SKIN AND COAT HEALTH: Optimal levels of fatty acids like EPA and DHA support skin and a healthy dog coat

SPECIALIZED KIBBLE: Small breed adult dog food has an exclusive kibble design adapted for miniature jaws

GREAT FOR PICKY EATERS: Enhanced palatable dog food satisfies the fussy appetites of small dogs

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.

Perfect for my Cavalier!

My Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has never been on any other food. This is perfect for her. Her coat is always shiny and she is very healthy. Our problem is that for the past year, this food is almost impossible to find. I know there are supply chain issues, but when your 4 year old dog has only eaten this kind, it would be very difficult to change over to another brand. PLEASE step up production.

Can’t find this product in pet stores!

So disappointed with Royal Canine. First they stop production of King Charles dry dog food. Now there’s no Small Breed dog food anywhere! Why?

Best food EVER!!!

Our rescue has fed Small Adult since 2005 and we have NEVER had a dog that did not love it! The product has been consistent in kibble size, taste, and formula. We send a small sample home with adoptions and get great feedback that owners have now switched to RC! THANK YOU for making Royal Canin Small Adult Dry available for the THOUSANDS of dogs which have come thru our rescue!
