A very easy chewing and quick mealtime for dogs

My chihuahuas used to circle the bowl now they dive right in.

perfectly sized portions for our dogs!

Our yorkie-chihuahua mix has packed on some pounds recently. We tried exercise, longer walks, extra play time, even changing to a few different dog foods. Nothing helped until we found Royal Canin Mini Weight Care! So far with her new food and longer walks she has lost over 5 pounds! Her tiny legs are happy again and shes bouncing around with the kids like she used too! So happy we found this product! We were getting very worried after our Vet said she could develop arthritis in her legs and joints. Now shes back to her old self and has a healthy weight.

Great for picky eaters!

I have been using this particular mini weight care for my 2 Yorkies, who are picky and tend to get bored with their food. Since switching to this one, they have maintained ideal weight and they don't seem to get bored.

Great weight management!

I've been using Royal Canin for years for my dachshund and love it! I use the mini weight control right now but have used others and always have had great results!!

Results are promising so far.

My chiweenie has had weight issues for the past few years and it has been a struggle to get her to lose weight. I originally had her on the Nature's Recipe dry food and then switched her later to Biljac. I am now in the process of switching her to the Weight Control dry food. So far, the results are promising. She is also not snubbing the new dry food. I did try the Weight Control canned food as well, but she didn't like it.

Weight No More!

I've been buying Royal Canin's Weight Care dry dog food for years. Vet recommended. My small Maltese dog LOVES it. I feel good about giving a healthier variety to my beloved dog. This is an A+ brand.

I switched my chubby pup to this food and during the transition from his old food to Royal Canin, I noticed he was only picking out the Royal Canin food to eat and leaving his old food in the dish. That to me says a lot about the taste and quality of this food.

My Yorkies Love This!

I've been using RC for years for my Yorkies, they love the flavor and don't seem to get bored with the food. I also buy RC canned and mix on occasion, just as a little mixer for my kiddies.
