X small petite adult dry food

I can’t find good food anywhere, is there another one that I can use for my 4 pound maltipoo? She’s one and we’ve been using the petite puppy in the meantime.

Too small

My 2 15lb dogs love this food, but a 2.5 lb bag goes quickly. Royal Canin absolutely needs to start manufacturing a bigger bag size.

Great food BUT ...

My Pomeranian loves this food and refuses to eat other dog food. I please request for there to be bigger bag. It expensive to buy 2 bags and doesn’t last long. It’s also not fair how there’s a big bag for chihuahuas even though there’s big size Pomeranians that eat more.

I would be so happy if Royal Canin would consider making this in a bigger bag! I have 5 small dogs and a 2.5 lb bag is expensive and doesn't last long.

Picky eater

About 2 months ago my 1yr old Pekinese started to turn away from Blue dog food. I came across an add in a magazine about Royal Canin. After an internet search i settled on Small indoor and was surprised that he just ate it the first time i gave him. I have also added canned wet for variety and now he is quite content. My only request is for a larger bag of this type of food.
