AGING SUPPORT: Optimal levels of EPA, DHA, and a complex of antioxidants for dogs support healthy aging

SKIN AND COAT HEALTH: Optimal levels of essential fatty acids from fish oil nourish skin and a healthy dog coat

OPTIMAL STOOL: Highly digestible proteins promote healthy digestion while decreasing amount of stool and reducing dog stool odor

SPECIALIZED KIBBLE: Small dog food kibble is easy to chew and designed for older dogs’ small teeth and jaws

Senior small indoor dogs enjoying a calm, quiet life have unique nutritional needs. With less exercise than their more active counterparts, lower activity levels can impact their weight. It takes a targeted science-based diet to give them the nutrition their lifestyle requires.

Royal Canin Small Indoor Senior dry dog food (formerly called Indoor Life Senior) is tailored to support your older small dog’s quiet, indoor lifestyle. Optimal levels of EPA, DHA, and a complex of antioxidants support healthy aging. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish the skin and coat. Highly digestible proteins decrease the amount of stool and its less-than-desirable smell. The right amount of calories gives them the energy they need to help maintain a healthy weight. And this small kibble is highly palatable for an easy-to-chew meal your pint-sized senior dog will love. Add variety to their bowl with Royal Canin Mature 8+ wet dog food.

Great for small seniors

My petite 12 year old Pug, Bella,has been eating Small Indoor Senior Dry Dog Food for almost a year. She loves the taste and the small sized kibble is perfect for her tiny mouth. After much research, I switched her from senior brand that was too high in protein and fat for her aging stomach. She recently had a check-up with blood work and is in great health for her age. Her vet said to continue feeding her this Royal Canin food.

Small easy kibble that is tasty for both dogs

I have been feeding both my German Shepherd and my Chihuahua Indoor Senior dry food for a year. Both dogs love it and clearly the taste is good for them as well as providing a senior diet. Although my German Shepherd is on Royal Canin Renal vet food, i mix in a small scoop (Chihuahua 1/4 cup) with each meal and it has not thrown off his numbers at all. Highly recommend it as both dogs have great vet appointments and good stools on this

My dog loves this food!

My dog loves this dog food and I have been able to keep her on a diet to where she is healthy and not hungry. She is about to be 12 and had major heart problems but down 2 lbs (she's a Pomeranian) she is happy and healthy and eats her dry food.

The BEST For My Dog

My dog, Alex, Is 14 years old and he has been eating and thriving on Royal Canin's food for years. Currently he is enjoying Royal Canin Indoor Life Senior. He eagerly eats his meals and your food has kept him in good health for years. Recently I took him to his vet for his physical and the vet said, "I can't believe he is 14!" I firmly believe that, along with exercise, regular visits to the vet and a good home environment, that this excellent diet is making Alex a happy and healthy dog. Alex is active, playful and alert thanks to this wonderful food. I wish I could give it more than five stars.

My 11 year old Maltese loves this food. It’s easy for him to eat and digest. He gets happy in the mornings and afternoon when he sees and hears the noice of the food. He is a healthier and very active dog thanks to this diet with Royal Cannin.
